just back from 2 great days of test cricket!

though i must say saturday was better becuase india collapsed and lost 6-16 and the aussies batted well
and some girl wearing a bikini top got cheered everytime she stood up

got to sit in the new ponsford stand (after standing on grand final day) today with my general admition ticket, PLENTY of leg room compared to saturdays experince with a "fat guy" infornt of me (thats not good for leg room when your 6 foot 3)

good old steve walked out everyone got up to cheer him, and 2 balls later after coping a nasty ball on the shoulder he retired hurt....most of the crowd seemed pretty dissapointed....
but never fear he came back out after Katich hit one to a fielder..
everyone cheered him on again

i had to leave when ponting scored his 200 (another standing applause)

great 2 days
and thats bonoman reporting for national nine news
seya steve

I wouldn't mind going today, but I can't be bothered getting into the city for only a little bit of cricket.

I would almost sell my liver and both my kidneys to be able to go to the Sydney test

but I probably wouldn't be able to enjoy it anyway without the liver and all

I happened to "catch" some good moments of yesterday's play. I laughed when the radio commentator said "we could see some fireworks after tea". I made me think of Bilbo's party in Hobbiton.

I just happened to turn on the TV yesterday afternoon and saw Dizzy running in . I was thinking "that guy must be feeling so frustrated now, it would be hard to stay cool..blah blah **assorted thoughts** and WHAMMO! he cleaned bowled him with that ball...AT LAST!!
During the last test match, I heard some of the Indian spectators who had travelled to Australia being interviewed on the radio. They talked about how massive is the interest and support of cricket back home. They sure would have enjoyed yesterday. An impressive display.
It will be the mark of the man and also the mark of Australians ( and the media) how Steve Waugh's retirement is viewed and remembered.

i went to boxing day test on day 2....but i gotta be honest im not much of a fan of steve waugh....perosnally i think he shouldve retired a year or 2 ago......good player, but not one i can admire.....

ponting is overall a beter role model because of how he managed to change his life after being one of the bad boys of world cricket, now hes captain and i believe a better batsman than waugh.

i cant stand brett lee though, he can bowl fast but with no accuracy or maturity, and i dont like the look of this clarke guy their trying to usher into the australian team, hes hardly done anything comapred with brad hodge.........

anyway ill be relieved when steve wuaghs gone, and i just hope the selectors see sense and drop brett lee when mcgrath is back and fit again

well, I don't think many would prefer Lee over McGrath right now
I know I don't!
but Lee must be a part of the team
if he doesn't get the chance now he might never make the progress needed to become anywhere near as good as Glenn
especially since I like to think that can make the progress he needs is to improve his temper
and you need to play at the highest level to achieve that

which brings me to another point
I think the most important reason the aussies have dominated world cricket as majestically as they have these last couple of years is because of a superior attitude and temper
not only do they have great batsmen and bowlers, all of them have the right state of mind to do whatever necessary to help the team
and to me no one embodies that quite like nor is rightfully to thank for this than Steve Waugh
I think of Ponting as a better batsman
I have no idea who would be better strategically
but I think a leader such as Steve only comes along once so often

I shouldn't get started on Steve really
Steve

Did you follow it back in Border's day Slomey? He really was an incredible captain. I might be biased because I really do feel they were better cricket days. It was a real competition then.
Also you think it is our attitude which gives us that leg up? I'd almost say the opposite. We have plenty of scandals. On a per capita basis, we'd have to comparatively be spending an obscene amount of money on this sport to get us where we are.
Australia A just gave Zimbabwe a royal hiding. And they're our youngsters.
