I'm sure all the MN cricket fans out there will join inmy celebration of kicking Aussie butt in the 20/20 cricket today

WOOHOO

And I'd just like to say this topic is another reason I LOVE MN. On 'another' baby site a few of us suggested a 'sports' board and were basically laughed at and told to take a hike......."It wouldn't be used often" "no-one wants to talk about sport" etc etc.

True this topic isn't used as frequently as the others but it's good to HAVE to it use

Pity the Lions couldn't do the same with the NZ Maoris at the weekend ... poor DH is getting it from all sides at work
Does not bode well for the Lions/All Blacks tests as most of the NZ Maoris are in the All Blacks anyway.
DH was chuffed about the cricket though ... I was too, secretly but I pretend to have absolutely no interest in cricket whatsoever

God, it was great. Have you all seen that advert with Shane Warne being "transported" by Gower, Nasser, Beef and wossisname, saying "I'll be back", brilliant........ Have we peaked though?

Don't think we've peaked, although twenty20 isn't played much in Australia. Will be a very different team out for the tests though so hope that the winning ways are catching.
With the football season over bar the transfer rumours I have to get into cricket for my sporting fix although having the Lions is a bonus as well.

I don't think 20/20 is played much here either, I've never heard of it before!

It's played a lot more here Davros than in Australia - there was a 20/20 cup competition for the counties last season.

Davros Sun 19-Jun-05 22:01:16

Helloooooo, and again today! What about yesterday though! I was going to post a while ago about "poor" Bangladesh being thrown in with the big boys but...... ha ha ha ha ha ha ha

zubb Mon 20-Jun-05 10:33:23

and how great was that yesterday! Pieterson was amazing!
Australia really aren't having a good week - you can bet the press there are focussing on the US open golf today rather than the cricket!
