See, this is what I can't understand....a game of Football (and I mean the World Game There) can be/usually is equally is exciting/entertaining as a game of AFL. Both sports (sometimes more so AFL have stalemate matches) and both have some real thrillers/unexpected results.

Its just a shame that I have to have pay tv to watch an A-League game, or some EPL. I remember the good old SBS days on saturday nights where they showed 1 EPL game....good times!

oh and by the way...Can someone start an AFL '08 Thread to continue this in?

It's probably "juuuuusht a fraction" too early to start the AFL thread. And good rebuttal, intedomine. I'll hit back when I have some more time.

Anyway, we have a superb test on our hands at the moment, with Australia looking at chasing 370+ to win the game

What another unbelievable test match. Test cricket is well and truly alive, and while I am a liiiiitle disappointed Australia didn't get over the line, I am much happier that India won. Terrific outcome, and this proves why Test cricket for me is still the best form of the game. The stories that come from it are far better than what come from one-dayers or 20twentys. I'm writing an article on the match, then I'll post it in here.

And inte what is your first name if you don't mind? Writing intedomine is getting kinda annoying lol.

This test series has had it all, a shame it'sd going to end with a shit boring draw, unless Australia can pull something out of its ass like it did against England in 2006. But this is India, and they aren't weak mentally, like England is, and so it will be a draw.

Adam Gilchrist announced his retirement from all cricket, hopefully the media pressure didn't have anything to do with it. He is the best wicketkeeper batsman the game has ever seen, no competition whatsoever.

Really looking forward to Today's India Vs Sri Lanka match.

Australia looked as if they should have won the game on Sunday, although after the rain effected the pitch/ball ect I would have backed India.

I still think Australia would have won, they needed less than four an over, and had responsible enough batsmen to bring them home. Plus India kept gifting them runs.

India were 4/83, finished 4/266. 110 runs in the final ten overs.

Cop that.

India could've won two by now.

And Rohit Sharma was fined 10% of his match fee for standing his ground after being given out to a downright disgusting decision. He was given out caught behind off Murali (who didn't even appeal) and he missed it by about 10-20 centimetres.
