So, I did a quick search and only noticed one real cricket thread mentioning the Poms winning the Ashes. Not much chance of me bumping that one.

Anyway, Cricket lovers delight. I'll be a little biased toward the Aussies, because they remain the best team in the world. Some flaws to overcome though.

So much cricket with the tests, one-dayers, 20/20, IPL and State and County games.

Updates, latest news, bagging the crap out of other teams, etc etc all welcome.

So, anything to do with Cricket - let's discuss, debate and drink beer as our team triumphs.

I'll start then. How's them Poms hey. Captain chucked a wobbly and then they sacked the coach. Maybe Warney should go and coach them.

Or, how about that first 20/20 match between Aus and RSA. New boy in the team smashed 89 off 40 odd balls. Never played a first-class game before being called into the national side. Set up a brilliant win to the new Aussie team.

Guess you don't want to talk about SA's test victory in Aus then.

I think the Ashes series looks very nicely set up to be a really fascinating contest

South Africa deserved the series win. Have to admit, one of the best (and most frustrating) series I've seen in a long time.

The Ashes should be very interesting. Both teams are re-building and hopefully there'll be some new talent on show.

That was a great era of cricket.

There will certainly be some Aussie bowlers having their first look at English conditions. Difficult to know how they will fare.
Don't think you'll see too many new faces in the England side.

I am a great lover of cricket.
The latest update is New Zealand v India.
Played at McLean Park, Napier, on 03 March 2009 - day/night (50-over match)
Result India won by 53 runs (D/L method).

Tragic what has happened in Lahore.
Going to be a long time before any test cricket is plaayed in Pakistan

Yes, it rather shows that the previous cancellations were with good reason. But it is terrible that the Sri Lanka team was targeted. I fail to see how anyone would think that would help their struggle.

It helps their struggle by discrediting the Pakistan government who had promised the highest level of protection to the Sri Lankans.

While simultaneous showing the opposition is an even more frightneing prospect than the govenment? I am not sure that is a net win.

I agree, watching cricket is like watching paint dry, cancel the lot I say...

I just noticed the number of this post...LOL
