Whoa BigBird, not trying to take any credit, Strauss may have a very apparent South African last name, but he sounds like a pom, Lamb and Hick always sounded like their countrys of origin, where they actually grew up . . . and yes that bundle of smiles Kepler Wessels changed his spots as often as it suited him.



I was smiling broadly as I wrote that last post, it wasn't meant deadly serious.

Foxleigh, I wouldn't like to say we'll beat you next summer because that would be a huge jump for us, but if we carry on the way we are going now I bet we'll be competitive.

Re: Cricket


But isn't it funny how the English talk about the Irish football team taking in anyone, the Scots having a German manager and the Welsh rugby team.

Then they conveniently ignore their South African batsmes, Jamaican bowlers, canadian boxers and tennis players and anybody else they can lay their hands on. emoticon

Think that they are doing excptionally ell at the moment, but won't be able to afford the odd bad session against Oz.

Re: Cricket


Foxleigh here is a joke that beautifully illustrates our frustration at regularly having our asses kicked by the aussies on the sports field and then having our faces pushed into their achievments buy some of your not so humble countymen:

Sitting together on a train, traveling through the Swiss Alps, were a
South African, an Australian (both guys), a young blonde lady, and a
little old lady. The train goes into a tunnel & a few seconds later
there`s the sound of a loud [sign in to see URL] the train emerges from the
tunnel, the Australian has a bright red hand print on his cheek. No one
speaks.

The old lady thinks: That Australian must have groped the blonde in the
dark, and she slapped his cheek.

The blonde thinks: That Australian must have tried to grope me in the
dark, but missed me and fondled the old lady. She slapped his cheek.

The Australian thinks: That South African must have groped the blonde
in the dark. She tried to slap him but missed and got me instead.

The South African thinks: I can`t wait for another tunnel, so I can
slap that Aussie again.

It's the way of the sporting world these days. There's a certain premiership striker at the moment who is English but not going to get a game for England, hang on he has a polish grandparent, might go and play for Poland. (apologies to any Poles reading this but it seemed a safer option).

Can't make out for the life of me why either Lennox Lewis or Greg Rusedski jumped countries. To me, if you have anything about you at all you stick to your own nationality.

And Alan, you forgot to throw in Englands football manager.

Re: Cricket


Careful what you wish for Foxleigh, you might get it. Paki's have bounced back well from their first test disaster.

So have SA by the looks of it.

This could be interesting. Worst day England have had this year, and first time they've been put in a position where they have to battle to save a match. Lets see if they can do it when the boots on the other foot.

Re: Cricket


Hey, smous, who moved the wicket?

The one that Kallis batted on today and England saw out the evening on can't have been the same as on day one, can it?

Saw some stuff on tele that said this pitch regularly plays like this. Does it deteriorate towards day 5?

Re: Cricket


The old salts reckon the incoming and outgoing tides have something to do with it. Kallis certainly made your pace attack look a little ordinary yesterday (Jones anyway), it was looking ominous for us when you got 3 wickets in the first session. Worry is Strauss looks like he has worked the pitch out.

Giles knew he had been in a cricket match after Steyn was finished with him, if he could have bowled yesterday we might not be sitting so pretty.
