Cricket, Lovely Cricket

Postby Ringo » Mon Jan 17, 2005 1:26 pm

A gripping Monday in the armchair here at Ringo Jingo Towers. Yet another blinding test match, both teams going toe to toe & now we are five wickets short, at tea, of what would be a famous win. Only a draw or a win for the Yarpies looked on this morning & now they are fighting to save the match & probably the series. How I love this game.

Men of the day ; Trescothick, finally piling on the runs away as he does at home & the magnificent Matthew Hoggard, all five wix to fall this arvo & now 10 wickets in the match - the equivalent of a 100 in each innings for a batsman. Special mention must also go to Ray Jennings, surely the biggest knob ever to coach a national sporting side, for whacking a cricket ball into his captain's left temple in practice yesterday, thus rendering him unable to bat today. Its all good.

Back to the chair now, fingers bit to the quick, guinness and roll-ups to hand, radio commentary & Sky pictures bringing me the game........... watch this space.

I've been at the cinema mate, just got home. They were five down for about 100 when I left at 1pm, superb result as you say and shows that the last test was just down to the lads having overdone the New Year celebrations :D

Gripping indeed if only through the BBC website, Toby. Been at work. Man of the day: step forward Yorkshire's Matthew Hoggard

Well some of us have been at work MSE! but I was following it on the internet updates and each time I looked another wicket had fallen. Sounds like it was a great afternoon, wished I could have been watching too with a beer and ting! :D
