Default The Ashes 2019

Anyone watching it?

Australia currently leading England 1-0 thanks to back to back centuries from Steve Smith, undisputedly the best test batsman in the world currently. Jimmy Anderson injured, might be out for the series.

2nd test being played at the moment, England made a mediocre first innings score of 258, but have Australia on the ropes to 80/4 (with Smith still in of course).

Currently rained for now and there's likely to be no more play today. If this test ends in a draw Australia only need to win 1 of the next 3 tests to retain the Ashes.

watched a bit of cricket last Saturday ,England new fast bowler Archer can bowl at 95 miles an hour, and on Saturday he hit austraias best batsman Smith twice once in the neck and another batsman once yesterday with bouncers. Bowling a bouncer is to intimidate the batsman not to hit the wickets surely some day someday a bowler will throw the ball directly at the batsman.

That wouldn't be cricket.

Time comes though when the bowler has to take up the bat and face the opposition fast bowlers as well. Think they've limited it to a max of two bouncers per over. Brave men batting having a hard ball coming at you at nearly 90mph when you've about 1/3 of a second to react. They've added an extra protection to the back of helmets in the upper neck area behind the ear now as occasionally a batsman would be injured or in rare cases die when struck by the ball.

The "English" will be delighted with that. Advantage gained from not playing gentlemanly cricket though.

Cheating c*** anyway. Still would like to see the tourists stuff the POMs. Get in amongst them early on with the new ball and then throw the ball to Lyon and let him tear through the middle order. Where is the 3rd Test Match to be held?
