Hey bro thanks I don't watch the cricket though. I find it insanely boring for some reason
Great fight back from the Poms. The 1st session tomorrow is massive. Whoever gets the better of it should win the Test.
Yeah, was a good showing last night, Root on target to break the record for most test runs scored in a calendar year as well. If they can get a lead of >200, we might still have a contest!
I might be an entitled prick but this test ends today.
5 nil thanks for coming fuck off.
Do you play?
Everyone tampers with the ball. England used lollies, NZ used a bottle top to scratch the ball up in 1990, England’s Atherton kept dirt in his pocket in 1994, Pakistan to whatever they can whenever they can get away with it - Aktar admitted as much in his own book.
If someone hits me onto a road and it DOESN’T come back scratched up there’s something wrong.
Pattinson is English now
Used to as a little kid, grew up around a lot of Pakistani kids, so pretty much had to learn. Loved to spend Sundays at the local cricket grounds in The Hague, just watching, having a chat and a beer. Shoulders to f-ed up to play now.
Atherton didn't break the laws though.
Edit: Well, technically, lying to the ref, but did not break the laws regarding ball tampering.
Sounds like fun mate but don’t try to distract me with nostalgia. You haven’t addressed my other examples and believe me I could go on. I definitely felt a tap.
I’m not trying to be a prick but the punishment heavily outweighed the crime and I question the sanity of anyone who can possibly still be pissed off about it. Bancroft was shit, horrible to watch and a Fucken moron. Warner is a dick but we can’t stay mad at Smithy just look at his little face.
Not even for Joe Root? I’m obviously Australian and even I get a half mongrel in my pants when he’s batting.
This thread is about the Ashes. As soon as NZ or the Pakis become a part of that, I'll be on your other examples like butter on toast!
Agreed, to a point, I just feel this is too much of a stain to allow him to be cap again.
And yes, he's a cute little sod. Just makes you want to pinch his little cheeks. Or sandpaper his bum.
Yeah, I'm staying up until he either hits his maiden Aussie ton, or gets out. Either way, I will be pissed, one way or another.
That made me laugh
It was a One Foot in the Grave reference.
Don't mean in terms of England doing well, just my own personal interest.......not in the UK so too much effort to watch, and neither team really seem vintage.
Though following this test sporadically on text, if England can bat the majority of today, day 5 could be a banger.......so yeah, all out by lunch!
You’re aware that the whole England team were in on ball tampering in the greatest ashes series ever in 2005 though aren’t you? Marcus Trescothick was the designated ball tamperer, several of the team talk about it freely.
