Test 1 is like halfway through so i thought I'd make a thread.

There probably isn't that many aussies or english people in the pit, im thinking more americans, but maybe some people will be interested in this thread.

It's pretty much devoted to talking about who you go for, issues of the game, who sucks and who doesn't etc.

For people that don't know, the ashes is a famous cricket series between english and australia lol...im not sure how big cricket is in america.

Game 1 Result:
Ends in a draw with England holding out on the last day.

Game 2 Result:
England defeat Australia by 116 (or so) runs on the last day. Flintoff taking 5 wickets in the end.

COME ON AUSSIE

haha australia's awesome. pity we've been sucking a bit lately.
there's not really much chance of us winning this test though, england will just drag on a make it a draw. we're gonna have to get them all out for like 200 in a day...bit difficult

Indeed. Shame about the lack of decent partnerships later in the day.

James Anderson ftw!

He has never had a test match duck, what a legend!




Yeah he is.

His batting has improved massively too.
#25
Anderson is a decent batsman in fairness. He plays proper shots, unlike some tail-enders who just "swing like a rusty gate", as David Lloyd would put it.

10-2. Nice.


They were saying it was going to be a good pitch for batting this morning as well.

Haha Ricky ain't going to be too happy about that one. Although he was plum LBW even if he hadn't hit it!

Great day for England. Can see the Aussies batting all day tomorrow, barely being ahead by the end of the day, then England wrap it up on Sunday.
It's gonna be a blue day

haha yeaaa they did, i got high hopes for us so far

u seen that ashes 2009 game thats coming out? actually looks quite decent


Hmmm...

Cricket games are usually dreadful.

The EA Sports one you used to be able to hit every ball out the ground. The 'Brian Lara Cricket' was a bit more difficult, but full of bugs and irritating glitches - like the keeper whipping the bails off from every throw in

yeaaaa the brian lara ones sucked, was really complicated too

but apparantly ashes is like, mainly for fun but also will have stuff to impress cricket fans

theres a few hands on reviews around sounds good
