No, what did he say?



They were talking about the light and he said along the lines of:

"I can remember batting in the west indies and we were playing at about 7pm. It was so dark we only knew the bowler was running in was because of their eyes and teeth."


Yeh right. I don't think you can say those kind of things anymore..

Michael Clarke off the field - some guy I've never heard of fielding as Shaun Marsh was sent back to his state side.

I remember when England did this in 05 and australia moaned and moaned about not using the "official" 12th man.

Clarke back on now, siddle off. Players going off for "comfort breaks". Remember a certain australian captain complaining that England were doing this.

I asked a question, how is that a whinge?

Typical convict though, claim it's whingeing. You're experts at it, so I guess you'd know.

I don't remember any moaning about that happening.

I know Australia have done it in the past before as well.

Picked up some local Tasmanian kid to field while a couple of players were off injured.

I don't see an issue with it if players are actually injured.

You didnt ask a question though. All I see is a series of whinges. And the original convicts (remember where they came from) invented it, hence the commonly known term, "pommy whingers."

You don't remember Ponting doing his nut at the changing room in 05 :lol:

So why was Clarke off the field?
Siddle had belly ache apparently

The original convicts were English (and welsh, irish and even greek), however their descendants are now aussies.

OK is should have used a question mark but

Australia declare 5/290.

India need 364 to win, 98 overs minimum.

Should be a good day at AO

With the 2 shockers India have had today, will they start to think about DRS and allowing it.

Meanwhile, has Lyon been having appealing lessons from the drug cheat.

Oh and day 5, warm day, on a weekend all 4 results up for grabs so what's the cons excuse for such a piss poor crowd.

Clarke having a sub fielder on the field, why was that allowed?

I got home from work with India having five wickets in hand. All four possible outcomes looked a possibility at the time but looks like it's going to be an Aussie win now.

Also, if you add 40+8 you get 48, the number of runs Australia won by and the game finished on the 13th. and Phil Hughes was named 13th man for the Test. :shock:

Bottom line, one of the best test matches ever. Probably rate in my top 10 (that I've seen)

Fantastic final session which credit has to go to India for. Didn't even try to shut up shop and take the draw.

India were very good on that final day. Their decision to go for the win and not play for a draw made for exciting viewing.

At one stage it looked like they were going to win too, but Nathan Lyon bowled fantastically.
