  1. Ashes 2017/2018

    Australia 4/165 at stumps with a good rear guard partnership of 89 between Smith and Marsh. England marginally in front I reckon, as they've got them on the board and Australia will have to bat last.
  2. Ashes 2017/2018

    At 4/196, I'd put the Poms slightly ahead. A slow old day and the pitch didn't help good batting or bowling. The new ball tomorrow morning will be the key. If the Aussies can get 2 or 3 quick ones, we might bowl England out around the 300 mark. If we don't get a few quick ones, England could get 400 plus with Bairstow, Woakes etc to come. Pretty even but I reckon England have their nose in front.
  3. Ashes 2017/2018

    Another good session by the Poms and they're 2/128 at the tea break. A vital wicket for Cummins just before the break. Paine dropped a soda off Lyon when Vince was on 68. That could be crucial. If The Aussies can remove Root earlier, they can get back in it. Should be an enthralling last session coming up.
  4. Ashes 2017/2018

    First session to England after winning the toss and being 1/59 at lunch. The pitch is an absolute pudding. No pace in it at all, really disappointing. Watching the feed on HDPrime via BT Sport. Impressed with the coverage and commentary, although Boycott can be a bit hard to stomach at times. I don't know the female commentator from a bar of soap. Better than listening to the muppets on Channel Nine.
  5. I'm pretty sure he was referring to obtaining a partner visa. Nothing really to do with your son trying to obtain Oz citizenship really.
  6. Nice work again Alex. On the phone front, I am a bit of a dinosaur when it come to phones I don't want or need my phone to make me brekkie tell or tell me what the weather is going to be like. When my Samsung flip phone broke earlier this year, BookMan recommended the J7 Prime. I disappointed him and opted for a Nokia 515 which I like and does the job.

  8. I bet Chooka spat the Coco Pops out when reading this. Paddy power on show as big Saint smashes PB FORMER No.1 draft pick Paddy McCartin has been a day one standout at St Kilda training, smashing his personal best in the club's 3km time trial. McCartin, Jack Billings and time trial winner Ed Phillips were all particularly impressive as the Saints' first to fourth year players returned at Seaford. McCartin, 21, has had a chequered start to his playing career, with three separate concussions in 2016 and one in the VFL in July stalling his progress. He has played just 22 senior games in three seasons, but on Wednesday he made a statement about his readiness for the 2018 season. "Some guys went above and beyond those targets like Ed Phillips at the front, as well as Paddy McCartin and Jack Billings," high performance manager Matt Hornsby told the Saints' website. "For Paddy to run a fairly significant PB is a really good indication that he continued the work he did at the back end of the season when he wasn’t able to play during the off-season – it has translated into a really strong performance today.”

    I don't think he should be recalled even though I'd like him to play. Even if he's found he doesn't have a charge to answer to criminally, he still brought the game into disrepute by beating the living daylights out of someone. Don't agree with you about there being players out there as good as Stokes. It's had to replace jet players in any sport.
  10. Ashes 2017/2018

    There's 3 weeks to go before the first test and you can be sure Stokes will still be training. And even if he's not available for the first test, he could always fly out for the remainder of the tour. I still think he'll make the trip.
  11. Ashes 2017/2018

    If I was a betting man, I'd be putting my money on Stokes getting get a recall. ECB seeks 'balance of censure and support' in Stokes case - Harrison http://www.espncricinfo.com/story/_/id/21324775/ecb-seeks-balance-censure-support-ben-stokes-case-tom-harrison

    They're waiting for the outcome of the police investigation.

    I use HD Prime for the cricket. You can find information about the website and others here.
  14. This whole series is available with embedded subs. One of the best series of the year IMO.
