What An Game!
Now, that was cricket! What a day of cricket it was yesterday! Shane Warne maybe lots of things but one thing is for certain, he is a magnificent bowler!
Australia took no prisoners yesterday, totally confusing and knocking out any confidence the Poms may still have had. After four days of battle, yesterday culminated in wondrous defeat by the Aussies of the Poms! What a great day of cricket it was. Warne, at 37 years of age, the greatest Test wicket-taker of all time, belied his years as he bowled unchanged for two sessions. His brilliance as a spin bowler shone brightly and cannot be denied.
Towards the end of the game it was 'edge-of-seat stuff'...reminiscent of the One-Day cricket matches. The crowd went wild and so did our cricketers as the Poms left the cricket field, lost, confused and alone.
Yesterday, Australia stormed to a 2-0 lead in the five-Test Ashes' series with a six wicket win...just in case there's anyone out there who may have missed the News! Huge! Huge! Huge!
Bring on the third Test in Perth...I can't wait!
