Going by the headlines that I saw on Channel 7, the English media think they've already won the ashes...if that was to go through the playing team, I think Australia has already won

Should be a good series....hopefully.

I know, I know...

Did you see Ponting after the match confronted about Symonds?

"When did you become aware about the situation regarding Andrew?"
*10 second pause*
"Uh... about 10 minutes before I tossed"
*Eyes glare at him knowing he is a rotten liar*



This is great fun, hopefully today is another great game & another loss

Now they are talking about sending Symonds home? What did he do?

Should be an interesting match tonight.

I just heard drinking & staying out the night before a game. I don't see how in the Australian team this would be a problem. Maybe he refused to go out and drink the night before a game - thus breaching team rules.

I couldn't belive they lost to Bangladesh...249 isn't all that bad...did Bangladesh lose a wicket?

Should be a great tour though. It seems Martyn hasn't lost his form...77 i think. 29th ODI 5O. He doesn't get enough credit.

Humiliating. This is one of THE sports stories of the year.

I think England will cause serious problems..... especially if Flintoff and Harmison are on top of their game.

Lets keep this thread alive thru the summer...

Im sure the Aussies will pick up real soon. I won't surprised if they destroy Bangladesh.

But Kevin Peitersen continues to dazzle in the shorter version of the game. Great stuff.....

Another Warne incident
Another player in hot water

A typical day in Australian cricket

Love the Aussies songs they have chosen when they walk on the field , or hit a 4 or 6.

Gilly just hit one and over the PA.........EL-E-VA-SSSHOOON!

0/22...its a good start!
