Hi Cricket Lovers

Ashes 2005 has been underway for about an hour now. Harmison is bowling with such aggression that he hit Langer in the elbow with his second ball, and cut Ponting on the cheekbone with blood flowing, about 5 minutes ago.

He's bowling like an Australian!

Stay tuned. Its all good stuff, with Hoggard having got an early wicket.

Since we have the summer holidays, me and a freind (who did his work experience at Lords - meaning FREE TICKETS) went along yesterday. Brilliant atmosphere, you could feel the tension in the air.

I envy you.

I sat up all night here in Sydney glued to my TV set. You could feel the atmosphere and the tension and the change of fortunes. 17 wickets to fall on Day 1, who would have predicted that.

Bhirquji,

A very interesting start to the test matches, I was at the first one day where England won comfortably and was expecting more balanced matches this series but you aussies are too good for us esp. Glen Mcgrath.

Will it be 5-0?


The latest….

Live: England v Australia MATCH SUMMARY (DAY 2):
Australia 174-3 & 190 v England 155
Full scorecard
Australia, having lost three second innings wickets, saw their lead speed past the 200-mark as England's bowlers toiled on the second evening at Lord's.
Michael Clarke, dropped on 21 by Kevin Pietersen, overtook fellow right-hander Damien Martyn, and was taking a liking to Ashley Giles' left-arm spin.
Ricky Ponting (42) looked set for a big score before throwing his wicket away.
Earlier, Pietersen's 57 - the best score in the match to date - helped England to 155 all out, 35 behind.

I'm so glad they picked Pietersen fot the Tests. He's a real competitor and a pleasure to watch.

Yes Pietersen is proving his worth... A wonderful prospect for pommies. However, with 300+ lead, England will find it tough...

And I envy you Anil... At least you are watching the match on TV. I don't have that privilege either sad1.gif sad1.gif

Iqbal bhai, I think 5-0 is tough this time. This England team will put up a fight.

Cheers,

One more thing I forgot to mention in my previous post was the retirement of Thorpe. Any comments guys? I think he could have played this season at least.

Cheers,

Are you sure he has retired. I thought he got dropped....But with the English middle being this brittle I am willing to wager my two cents on Thorpie making a comeback

Vivek & Deghosh

It's a pity Thorpe was not picked ahead of Bell.

Yes , he has now announced his retirement saying he wants to spend more time with his family.

I would have also gone tomorrow, but have a club match !

Really exciting atmosphere - ruined by the idiocy of the Barmy army.

They say it might rain in the next two days, could that possibly save England ?

With England needing 264 runs with 5 wickets left, its no doubt advantage Australia at the moment. Its only the bowlers left in the pavillion so if England have any chance of putting up a fight, it will have to mostly rely on this current pair of Pietersen and Jones.

Over here in Toronto, most of the satellite channels have been zapped and other cable networks are not covering the series so we're missing it doh.gif.

Well, I am new at this forum but the latest is that Aussies have done it again! How many times do they do it, when in trouble they strike back even harder and more often than not are the winners. Overall, a good game of Cricket and the Ashes Series 2005 might just follow a more predictable path than I had thought before the series began.

I hope the series isn't one-sided and that England fights back.

McGrath reaching 500 wickets is truly an outstanding achievement !
