    Now that Warne & McGrath are likely retirees from Australian Cricket, they might be tempted to pick up an English cap for a change of scenery.

    This could be the salvation of English cricket. A bit of research by their selectors would soon establish which Australians have obscure English blood relatives, going back far enough.

    I think five members of the third test squad for England were not born in England (Strauss, Pietersen, Jones, Mahmood, Panesar).

    If there are any more then I don't see how you can call it an English side unless you can convince them all to start playing 1.c4.

    So what's your excuse? To run like the devil's chasing you.

    I think you would find that just about any country would have Pietersen. In fact the South Africans are very upset that they don't.

    I'm most distressed with all this laughing and giggling in my general direction.

    South Africa desperately want Kevin Peitersen back.

    So they can bash the crap out of him.

    Boxing Day Test Is Go!

    The only thing worse than having you lot giggling and sniggering is the in-law in the next room giggling and sniggering.

    A little disappointing today. Gilchrist dropped a genuine chance of McGrath and Hayden also dropped a pretty regulation catch in the gully off Clark.

    Still... the news is not all bad. <giggle> <snicker>

    As an outsider looking on I could never understand the animosity between Aussies and Poms - Lebos classified them all the same - English

    Most of Warnie's wickets were genuine in that legal balls (even if bluffed ref) whereas that other guy, the Ralipindi express's are questionable

    Gilchrist misses an easy stumping of Peitersen. He's having a shocker.

    England 5/122... but should be eight down.

    England made 159 and the Aussies are 2/48 at stumps. Langer out for 27 and then Lee out the next ball for a duck. Nice bowling from England and a little unlucky not to have Hayden out lbw to Hoggard. The morning session tomorrow is sure to be entralling.
