I LOVE CRICKET!!!!

I think it is a great game. There is nothing like planning life around a test series (No! I can't go to the beach/movies/that U2 concert because the cricket's on). Roll on Boxing Day (my fav time of the year - the test, christmas, chocolate and alcohol what more could one want )

I support Australia because this is where I live (and Ireland doesn't have a touring team) and I think they are good. It doesn't mean that I can't see the brilliance in other players/teams and congratulate them on a fine win. (Hint!)

Australia has been the dominant team for a very long time and before that there was the West Indies and please, don't tell me that they weren't arrogant. Actually, the current English cricket team is developing the same sort of arrogance (or belief in itself) which is what is good for the game. If you are going to play at that level and don't believe that you can win no matter what (and I don't mean bad sportsmanship here) then you shouldn't be playing.

Look are your darling All Blacks, I would suggest that they have the same sort of will to win.

I guess what I am trying to say is that gentle ribbing is fine and having a bit of a laugh at someone for whatever is okay, so long as it is done in the right spirit.

Not when I have A-levels and national service. And I'm skint.

Anyway ABC Asia isn't carrying it, but Home & Away is on later. I wonder if I should watch it and see what the fuss is all about. Listening to the radio broadcast.

Anyway I have thought about moving to Australia for studies before but the schools I looked at were just too much money.

Yeah, the money issue is a pain in the butt.

Home and Away! No! Don't do it, save your brain

At the current run rate (5.64) the World XI are going to have a huge target.

Well he's out, but we're still looking at a 300+ target.
