Phew! That was close. Looked like we were going to drag defeat from the jaws of victory yet again. Fair play to the Aussies for making it entertaining. Better luck next time, cobbers!

I have actualy attended a Cricket match once, when I was in England 33 years ago. An interesting game, that takes far to long to bring to a conclusion. And to think, there are some Americans who think our baseball is too slow...

Look, it's quite simple. The team that's in goes out - until they're all out, then they come in. When the team that was out get the team that was in to come out again it gets interesting, unless bad light or tea force both teams to come in....

When you've got the hang of this we'll take you through googlies, silly mid-on, and middle wickets etc, just don't ask the Aussies about English bodyline tactics or the Limeys about Geoff Thompson's bouncers...all clear now? Good! Carry on.

lol Great game though. Both sides played very well and it was edge of the seat stuff. Do we get something for a draw?!?! :s

If it was'nt for out dodgey bowling, oh and fielding and not forgetting our poor openers, we might actually win the series! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

The Pommies invented the tactic m8, it's called body line, aim for the batsman not the wicket. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_eek.gif http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/88.gif

Here in the US, cricket bats are used to spank little kids who do bad things.

Gotta congrate Lee on his brilliant Caught n Bowled though http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Was so utterly depressed when Kaspo got out, only 2 runs needed to draw and 3 to win, Lee had been on strike for a couple overs and got 20 runs, and on something like the second ball of the over he gets out. Stooge http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/59.gif

As a first generation Aussie with Irish parents, I could never get my head around cricket. God knows I've tried to like it, but its just organised loitering if you ask me.

Cricket is infinitely subtle.

Baseball now, I never could figure out - the difference between a strike ( when you don't actually strike the ball ) which is a penalty of sorts I think and the ...um .. other time you don't hit the ball but are not penalised always confused the hell out of me.

Oh and the other rules as well.

Cricket rocks ! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif ( especially when the Aussies lose )
