Down to Banton and Salt now?
And they had them 3 down, but then relaxed a bit … and it was 7 wickets for 327 runs at Stumps. A reasonable recovery by the Australians, and more warm weather forecast, so that may test (SWIDT?) the English Ladies. Happy that I’m lazily retired now coz I can sloth around and watch the Match all day while SWMBO is out belting the dimples off a little white ball … and contesting right-of-way …The ladies have the Aussies two down though
Well, the English Ladies have certainly shown a degree of fortitude at Manuka Oval, which has indeed, given the Australian Ladies something to consider prior to the One-Day matches; well done, to be sure!
But made really hard work of it and tried to lose the semi!
England win and reach final!
(yes, you read that right)
A win's a win! I'll take anything after this winter....But made really hard work of it and tried to lose the semi!
Agreed, I'm delighted with the win and it sure was exciting. Can't see India or Australia quaking in their boots thoughA win's a win! I'll take anything after this winter....
Plus I think it's the first time we've been in the final of this competition since we won it in 1998. Said team included Graeme Swann, Rob Key & Owais Shah
Other reports saying he was sacked with Strauss taking over in the interim. Silverwood and Thorpe to follow?Ashley Giles quits as MD England cricket team.
I guess a ritual sacrifice was needed after this winter, but the real villians imo are Gilo's employers at the ECB. Hope he finds another role in the county game.
