Shane Warne where are you?


Itsa gonna be a follooooooooow-ooooooooon.... oh, the shame of it.


England 3/30 - looks like you guys are crumbling! :lol:


Hah...!!! You Ozzies will be praying for rain for a draw.... bad news... it's gonna be hot and dry in London for days... :lol:


Don't under estimate any Australian Team with its back to the wall!

The Australian way is to fight and always attack the opposition. To the bitter end.

Trivia: If England win at Lords, it will be the second time the beat Australia in 40 years at that ground.

So enjoy it while it lasts! :D

It is a very young and inexperienced side.

They are in a building phase but it won't take long for the youngsters like Agar to get a taste of blood. :wink:

What is it with 'English' being born abroad - cant their fathers control themselves on their summer holidays! And that well known, born in Keyna, Froome wins the Tour de France, he will be English too!

Pietersen was born to an English mother, Penny, and an Afrikaner father, Jannie

Born in South Africa, Strauss moved to England at the age of six

Who is the Paphos wicketkeeper?


What is it with 'Englishmen born abroad'? Can their fathers not control themselves whne the sun comes out? A few months in St Peterburg would curb their ardour. Soon we will see that well known Englishman Froome (born in Kenya), win the Tour de France lol

Paphos wicketkeeper: Allan Knott, who according to my English cricket loving friends was the greatest ever...

For me cricket its the worlds most boring game, I would rather watch a ....Russian beauty putting her ...make on, or taking it off!!!
Look at the stupid score boards, thousands of bloody runs, God knows how many wickets, you need a calculator to work out the score. Suitable for Asians surely but not for Europeans.

Are you suggesting that Asians are of a lower intelligence?

There are some great looking Devys in St Pete's who warm the heart of an Englishman in the long cold nights of winter when there is more incentive to stop in bed!
