Dame Edna Evarage, Sir Les Patterson, Skippy the Bush Kangaroo your boys took one hell of a beating.

Loved that throw from Buttler that nutmegged Smith and ran him out. Mind 10mm higher and Smith, the alleged lesbian look alike, would have been singing soprano.

England thrash NZ and lift the ICC World Cup. Well not quite a thrashing, in fact did England actually win? Think the scores were tied at the end of the 50 overs and the Super Over? Or were they? Tight doesn't describe it. Anyway who cares how it was done as its been a very long time coming.

Well done to the Pommy Bastards. They deserved that considering they had been the top ODI (or is it now called Two Day International?) team for the last few years. It only took 44 years for them to win a major ODI tournament.


I think that is the first time that I have ever congratulated a winning English cricket side. Must be getting soft in my old age.


One can only imagine what the Kiwi players are going through at the moment. So many what ifs and proof that cricket is a game of inches. Not to mention that Ben Stokes was born there. Please remind me again where Eoin Morgan, Jofra Archer and Jason Roy were all born? It wouldn't be a proper England side unless nearly half the team was born elsewhere.


I bet the bloke who wrote the tournament rules never thought the "most boundaries" clause would be invoked as a tie-breaker.


Anyways my Betfair account received a nice boost. I only bet small amounts these days and not very often. These are my total bets in the last 3 months. Looks easy doesn't it


Thank you, England and South Africa

Had a few technical hitches on the Big Day and had to listen to some of the game on the radio. Aggers was taking the piss out of the producer who reminded the commentators to mention to the listeners that, should the scores be tied, there would be a Super Over. They all pissed themselves laughing at the producers stupidity, then had to rapidly look up the playing conditions later on.

Baz note your comments on Roy, Morgan Archer etc. Who knows one day England may even catch Australia up and field a team where no Indigenius players whatsoever are involved.

Very few overseas-born players represent Australia at Test level. Currently, in the practice match in Southhampton, only two of the 24 players were born overseas. Marnus Labuschagne & Michael Neser. You can add in Usman Khawaja who is currently injured.




Now if you mean Indigenous as in Aboriginal, there has been only one Aboriginal to play Test cricket and that is Jason Gillespie. I always thought he came from a wog heritage but somewhere in his family, there is some Abo in him. Bit of a stretch but there it is


From Wikipedia

Quote:

Jason Gillespie is a descendant on his father's side of the Kamilaroi people of Indigenous Australians, and is the first acknowledged Aboriginal person to become a Test cricketer. His mother has Greek heritage


I always thought Dean Jones had some Aboriginal blood in him but I guess I am wrong.





On a different note, the first cricket team from Australia (then the colonies) was an All Aboriginal team who toured England in 1868 but they were not classed as an official representative team.








The First Australian Tour of England: 1868

Bazz's Aussie Team for the first Ashes Test


Warner
Bancroft
Khawaja
Smith
Head (V/C)
M.Marsh
Paine (C)
Cummins
Pattinson
Siddle
Lyon




No Starc, No Hazelwood, No Harris and yes it hurts me to even mention the three cheating bastards


If Langer is true to his word, where he stated all positions were up for grabs (other than Paine as captain & Lyon as he is the only spinner we have) and that the practice match form was paramount, then this should be the team.


It could be an interesting Test squad named on Friday

Based on Englands performance against the Paddy's its back to the drawing board.

Nearly got it right. Why do we need three wicket-keepers in the side? Good luck to Wade though. Always scores loads of runs at the domestic level but not much for the national side. He has his chance now



Here we go again
