And those factors are unique to her?
Nope. I couldn't even begin. I do know she's awesome, I don't know how.
"Unique" is a very strong word. I doubt any factors are unique to anybody. In combination, they are unique to her of the people I know.
This formed the basis of my groom's speech, by the way, so articulating them isn't just an academic exercise!
True, and it is, in effect, the home ground of Johnson and Hussey
Gilchrist's whirlwind century at Perth - WA batsman
They have a phrase there: 'Eastern States shots'. Basically, the way you need to play there is very different even from the other Aussie grounds
behold folks, what happens when you let a stats nerd (i.e. kabbes) loose on a cricket thread!
Embree-i can buy that about Perth, totally.
Remember when Australia were all out for 98 lol?
Are we having a new thread for the 20/20 and one dayers, they're not technically the ashes?
Dunno - nice to see Watson fail to get a 50 in this format too though!
Would rather have a different thread so we can keep this one for discussing proper cricket rather than this... this... shit
Seeing as the tests have finished, I don't see the problem with using the thread for the short games. It's like we've had all our main presents and now we are just messing about with the stocking fillers.
Yeah. You only really need one cricket thread at a time. We can have a World Cup one later in the year, and then perhaps a general summer of 2011 thread after that.
Can we change the name to 'The Ashes & the inconsequential hit and giggle bits tacked on afterwards 2010/11' then?
The crowd can catch 'em
(Must have been an englishman says nasser)
We are getting runs, and they are getting wickets. We could probably still win if both continue at the same rate.
Ouch! so much for my namesake
But we're making Watson look like McGrath.
Playing the long game there.
1 needed with 1 ball left. Super over or whatever the hell it is seems most likely
Never panicked. World champions don't.
Shut my mouth
That was quite close.
If I cared about 20/twenty then I would have been quite interested.
That was a fun match
I'm all cricketed out. Never did like 2020 much anyway-not in the true spirit, etc....
Skin of the teeth
Doesn't get much closer!
Would it help if you thought of it as a separate sport that utilises some of the same skills as cricket?
That is exactly how I think of it. And, as its own sport, I find it OK but a bit insipid. Worth watching if it's on, but I wouldn't bother putting the telly on for it.
It's a more accessable version of the game. It's quite different in both skills required and tactics.
Separate names with a comma.
