Didn't bother changing any of my players.

England lost by the narrow margin of 9 wickets with Australia having over half their overs left.

Did anyone actually put themselves through the agony of watching this?

shocking  doh  dontknow  That's all I have to say!

Agony of watching it?
I was there FFS, wearing my England shirt. And again on Friday. How I managed to not poke my eyes out with a fork I don't know. Worst $130+ I've ever spent.

lol I did think about you on Friday - I'd turned the tv to watch it and it had finished!  shocking

After the elation of winning the Ashes in 2005 and how people were feeling about cricket, this 'tour' has been awful for English cricket - the Kiwi's and Aussie's must be p*ssing themselves with laughter!  I couldn't believe the Aussie's score against the Kiwis the other night and was very surprised to see that they nearly caught them up!  England can't even reach 344 in a 5 day test series at the moment Rolling Eyes

Sigh, we've collapsed from a reasonable start again. Won't make more than 150. Finally my brother has gone to bed so I can turn it off.

I didn't even want to go, couldn't face anymore of it after the NZ game on Tuesday. Was on at my Mum the whole week to take my ticket, I would've just given it but she wasn't too keen to go. Then on the morning of it she said she would if I really didn't want to but she wasn't that keen, so finally decided it would be silly to give it away and as a fan I should at least turn up, and I'd regret it the rest of my life if England were to amazingly win. Sigh, I should've stayed home and watched the tennis instead.
Englishman in front of us left after England's innings. He got up and said "I've had enough" and walked out and I was about to do the same but as I'd paid I stuck around till the end.

I think we have been very unlucky this year and to be honest I can't wait to see the back of it, if Pieterson was still fit then we probably won't be in this mess, I think we would of beat NZ all the time if Vaughen and Pierterson didn't pick up them injuries and Flintoff is terrible as captain utter inexperience and plus he plays better when he isn't captain, anyway I thought that Ed Joyce played excellent today and Nixon also everyone else should be ashamed of themselves especially Collingwood what's happened man, in the first test match he got 93 I think and in Adelaide he got a double Century what's gone wrong.

Current rankigs in ODI - I knew that New Zealand had a good ODI team.  Once NZ scored over 200 I knew that England would be stuffed! no  It was sheer torture!  Glad that I had to go to bed Rolling Eyes

I don't follow cricket that much... but the language is absolutely delightful... lmao

23rd over: Australia 122-4 Squeeky bum time for Ravi Bopara - the debutant into the attack with his dibbly-dobblers. He beats Symonds with his first delivery and Nixon whips off the bails. The square-leg umpire goes upstairs and they take about four seconds to decide it's not out. Symonds runs Bopara away for a single down to third-man and Hussey picks up a couple of leg-byes. Good chugging between the stumps. Good, tight first over from Bopara, just what the doctor ordered.

The BBC Commentary is exceedingly good... roflmao

29th over: Australia 156-5 White drives Bopara through the covers and Kerplunkers makes a good diving stop on the boundary rope. Bracken puts manners on a Bopara half-bunger and the ball runs away for four. Nine from the over and the Gatorade-mobile makes it's way onto the field. Has anyone seen the Woody Allen film Everything You Wanted To Know About Sex But Were Afraid To Ask?? The Gatorade-mobile moves like the giant breast in that. That's been bugging for months.
