Celestron Posted on 22/11 10:42
re: Australia V ENGLAND.

Raymondo...Australia will be busting a gut to get the Ashes back the likes of Hayden, Langer, Ponting, McGrath, Warne etc see losing the ashes last year as the only blight on their careers. But they are getting long in the tooth and there is a real doubt even in the Australian media as to whether they can do it. I think that we now have the better players who are in their prime and not past it also the weight of Australian expectations will be high and if they dont deliver from the first ball they will be on their backs...England 2-0...Just wish Vaughan was there.

ste_north_stand Posted on 22/11 10:45
re: Australia V ENGLAND.

I'm annoyed Geraint Jones has got the nod ahead of Chris Reed. Jones WILL NOT do enough with the bat to warrant being picked IMO.

ray192 Posted on 22/11 10:45

I couldn't agree with you more about the pressure from the fans and getting older thats why i tyhink we will retain the ASHES .

Longster - you're welcome. just need to type the following 10 times

"Yorkshire are a better cricketing county than Durham"

I was surprised Reed was dropped for Jones, but Jones was brought up on them pitches and will do us proud I am sure.

England are going to retain the ashes and will win the first test too

Degsyitis Posted on 22/11 11:27
re: Australia V ENGLAND.

It will be a hard series but if England can stand up to Australia mentally they will win for they are a better side. I was reading the Sydney Morning Herald a few weeks ago and they were having doubts about McGrath saying that although he still does not give runs away he seems to have lost a bit of pace and agression to his bowling and doubt that he can still take wickets as regular as he once did. Hayden Langer and Martyn did not have a good series last year and at 35/36 there are doubts about them. Tomorrow will be crucial if England can have a good start to this game I expect them to go on and win the series.

Coluka Posted on 22/11 17:47
re: Australia V ENGLAND.

We will draw 2's apiece and keep em, i feel more confident now than i did a while back.

Anyway we should retain them cos from what i've heard about Pietersen, Freddie, Hoggard and Harmy's private life they all like performing 'Down Under'

7_The_Informer Posted on 22/11 18:49
re: Australia V ENGLAND.

3-1 to the convicts is my prediction I am afraid. Hopefully it won't happen, but then again, I can't see past that at the minute.

Mebbes I reserve the right to update my predictionb after the first session ...

Cobain_94 Posted on 22/11 21:06
re: Australia V ENGLAND.

I'm going to go Australia 2-1. They've been superb since the Ashes, we've been out of form Pakistan test excepted but on our day we can beat anyone which is why we'll make a fight of it and it'll go all the way.

Brisbane is going to be a draw though, picking Giles ahead of Monty looks to me like we're playing it safe for this one.

GrumpyOldGit Posted on 22/11 22:13
re: Australia V ENGLAND.

After all the hype, we're nearly there. Any news if it's Giles or Monty playing as the spinner? Monty spins it more, but this ground is not generally a spinner's wicket, so my money's on Ashley Giles as the batting option.

I'll be there for the first few overs at least. Come on England!

bungydinsdale Posted on 22/11 23:53
re: Australia V ENGLAND.

For me this is the key test. Oz never loses there, or hasn't for something like 18 years. If England can get a draw out of this it will be interesting. Win it and the Ashes are retained with at least a draw.
If Oz wins it, I think the sheep stealers will have it 3-1 and be gloating about it for another few years.
C'mon England...

Any predictions for the Australian declaration?

BobUpndown Posted on 23/11 8:33
re: Australia V ENGLAND.

Now when Boycott called for Fletcher to go before the start I thought it was just him being his typical 'centre of attention' self..

but looking at the team he's selected.. Boycott may have ahad a point!!

Team is too negative.. just like Fletcher.. Harmison despite the hype that surrounds him is not a dominant wicket taking bowler (he had one good series in West Indies a few years ago) he bowls too short too often and takes too few wickets.. ohh and he's clearly injured..

GILES! like the bloke but he's been out a year! and doesen't take many wickets.. MONTY was not even a brave choice.. it was the only choice if we were to bowl them out.. by not picking him we've shown the Aussies we were looking to escape with a draw..

Flintoff as captain.. more hype than substance.. Strauss should have kept the captancy.. and lt Fred focus on his game..

longster Posted on 23/11 9:37
re: Australia V ENGLAND.

Just got up

BUGGER!

ray192 Posted on 23/11 10:36
re: Australia V ENGLAND.

Bob

Some very good points

Why if your going to pick Giles then surely he must have played in the last warm up game? didn't bowl that bad though really . Harmison was all over the shop with the new ball so much so that after 2ov they took him off 17 runs conceded . Anderson set off poorly aswell but graduly got better but never really caused any problems . Hoggard set off well but faded away average day i would say for him. Collingwood 1ov for 12 runs say no more . Pieterson did ok at least he got the ball to turn a bit which Giles never did once. Flintoff bowled brilliantly in short bursts to keep him fit .

My summary first new ball never swung at all second one only six overs old was doing so some hope i think . Vital toss too lose it was obviously a batting wicket .

C'MON ENGLAND .

Realistically they'll declare on 740 for 7 and we'll need a rumble in the jungle type performance with the bat.

If we can get out of that mess and draw we'll have a chance of going on and drawing the series and retaining the replica of the urn.

Quote of the day when their tail enders were giving it some tap:

"I always preferred it when the tailenders didn't wear helmets. There was none of this pulling or hooking because they could see the hospital in the corner of their eye." Geoffrey Boycott, TMS summariser

One session out of 6 we have performed in. Pretty average stuff.

Fatsuma Posted on 24/11 10:44
re: Australia V ENGLAND.

Australian over-cofidence and complacency were key reasons for our Ashes success last year.

What better way to recreate those conditions that let them 'tonk' us in the 1st Test again?

Clever!

7_The_Informer Posted on 24/11 23:18
re: Australia V ENGLAND.

Big, big first session. If we can get through the new ball, then only Warne should present a danger (though McGrath id McGrath ...). We desperately need Belly and KP to fire. Lose 2 wicket max in the first session to stand any chance ...

Aye, it's time for the men with the large gonads to step up and be counted. Make a stand, blood and guts, down to pride now. Very unlikely to even see a draw here, but if they're anything, they need to fight it out, and never give it up.

Ray, what are your thoughts on:

Should Monty have been in for this test, and if so instead of who?
Should Monty play the next test, and if so instead of who?
Would you look to change either of or both of Harmison and Anderson at Adelaide, and if so for who?
Is Collingwood a good enough batsman for this side?

re: Australia V ENGLAND.

On channel 9 (what I am watching), KP's ball was missing by 6.9cm.

As for the no-ball, I did a season or two as an umpire and it is amazing if you concentrate how many times people are out off no-balls. It makes sense if you think about it ...

re: Australia V ENGLAND.

Morning Ray..apart from feeling suicidal how are you this not so fine morning....Well what can you say about this absolute total shambles? when everyone was making their predictions earlier in the week I talked about being mentally up to the task and sadly from the moment that big galloot bowled the first ball 20 yards wide of Langers off stump we just have not been at the racers. This must go down as one of the biggest gutless performances that any England side have put on in a long line of gutless performance over the last 20 years.

re: Australia V ENGLAND.

I'm singing in the rain
Just singing in the rain
What a glorious feelin'
I'm happy again
I'm laughing at clouds
So dark up above
The sun's in my heart
And I'm ready for love
Let the stormy clouds chase
Everyone from the place
Come on with the rain
I've a smile on my face
I walk down the lane
With a happy refrain
Just singin',
Singin' in the rain

Dancin' in the rain
Dee-ah dee-ah dee-ah
Dee-ah dee-ah dee-ah
I'm happy again!
I'm singin' and dancin' in the rain!

I'm dancin' and singin' in the rain...
[ADDITIONAL VERSE]
Why am I smiling
And why do I sing?
Why does September
Seem sunny as spring?
Why do I get up
Each morning and start?
Happy and head up
With joy in my heart
Why is each new task
A trifle to do?
Because I am living
A life full of you.

COMMENT

AUSTRALIA are still likely to leave Brisbane 1-0 up in the series but Ricky Ponting's decision not to enforce the follow-on was an overly-cautious move which could still cost his side in areas other than the match result.

Yes, Australia should still win comfortably here. Yes, the lessons of Kolkata 2001 are still deeply etched. Yes, Australia have an ageing attack and have another Test on Friday.

But to take their foot off England's throat on Saturday, when 445 runs in front on the first innings, was an overly conservative move by Ponting. It was the second-largest lead a Test side has enjoyed without enforcing the follow-on, and the largest by Australia, surpassing the 380-run margin Bill Woodfull's team had enjoyed when winning at The Oval in 1934.

While Australia will back themselves to take the remaining wickets required for victory today, not enforcing the follow-on has already backfired in some areas.

England's batsmen, inexperienced in Australia, were a rabble as they were routed for 157 on day three. But instead of being made to go out and face Glenn McGrath and company straight away, they had several hours on the field, and a night in their hotel, to contemplate what went wrong and how to rectify it. The results looked obvious yesterday despite the deteriorating pitch, which also heightened Ponting's inclination to avoid batting fourth.

Then, England's resistance yesterday allowed them to revive their spirits and take something positive out of this Test. A substantial runs defeat would be hard to take. But nothing is more demoralising than losing by an innings.

Australia also now have injuries to contemplate after batting again. Ricky Ponting hurt his back during his 60. McGrath required a pain-killing injection for a bruised heel after his morning bowling yesterday. Australia will hope he pulls up sound.

Australia will also have to hope it does not rain today.

Ponting has now had the chance to enforce the follow-on five times and done it only once - when time was running short in a rain-marred draw in New Zealand. The other matches were all won. Considering two more wins in Ponting's absence in India, Australia have not enforced in five of their past six opportunities.

Since India won from following-on in Kolkata in 2001, when Australia's bowlers tired in the second innings, Australia have been wary of enforcing if about 55 overs or more have been required in their opponent's first innings. Here, England's first innings lasted 61.1 overs, but only 44 came on Saturday before Ponting's decision.

No doubt Cricket Australia and Channel Nine won't have objected, as the move ensured play on days four and five.

But although Australia's bowlers have back-to-back Tests to consider, had they finished off England by an innings, they would have had more time to recuperate for Adelaide.

There are times when Australia must drop down a gear from the attack-at-all-costs approach of Steve Waugh. On this occasion, however, Ponting got too cute. He should have struck while the iron was hot and England were cold.

re: Australia V ENGLAND.

Well, That first ball of the test match has to go down as one of the worst I have seen in my life!!

I watched every ball of the first two days, but by then it was quite clear of the outcome so I decided it wasn't worth the sleep deprivation so just saw highlights after that.

Can we still retain the Ashes. OF COURSE WE CAN.

COME ON ENGLAND!!!
