Cricket? I never got the appeal of standing while some lunatic ran at me full pelt and whanged a leather covered lump of wood at me. Probably because I was shit at it frankly. Just an excuse for drinking the one and only game I attended....

....lightbulb moment!

When I hear cricket, I always have to think of Douglas Adams and THHGTTG :p

A full 5 day test match is a wonderful way to exercise your patience muscles. This one was fantastic though so an easy ask.

Cricket, the only ball sport I truly don't understand....as in: I can't make sense of what I'm watching :)

Sorry thought you meant Andy Murray at the French open. Dual nationality, he's English til he gets knocked out, then he goes Scottish :cool:

Well done England (it hurts to say that but you did beat the kiwis). I love sitting down and doing little else for five days given the chance, I'm looking forward to the ashes. Hopefully some of the tests land on my night shifts.

Good win today beating the posh Aussies.

Great test match and mildly promising for England ahead of the Ashes. Nice to have a test match with no sledging, either, although it wasn't really cold enough for snow.

I'd rather read more complaint posts here , haha.

I hardly watch any televised sports beyond motor racing.

So let me get this straight...there is no puck?

Well batted Ian, you got your boys across the line. You are a man of many talents aren't you;)

i dont watch cricket at all, i dont see the interest in some person batting a heavy red ball on a piece of wood and all that running. its the same why i also dont see the interest in watching a pair of sweaty men or women, screaming and grunting using some plastic netted metal framed object against a hollow rubber green coloured ball at high speed over a net in the middle. doesnt appeal to me at all, its the same for football (no not american rugby).

Good win today, sets the series up nicely for the 4th test!

Think the sissies are screwed now for the rest of the series, the batting is shot and the bowlers are struggling compared to the engrish.
