    Thought I'd revive this thread with what looks to be the most exciting ashes series in a while.

    After an amazing second test it's really interesting. But let's not forget that Australia were without McGrath. England have yet to really find a way to stop him taking wickets.

    I think Australia will still win the series, but England are gonna give them a few good matches.

    i have been watching the Ashes since Test 1 Day 1 (well 5th day of third test for personal reasons). I just can't believe England did not beat Australia in the third test i mean although i did not watch the day 4 overs should be plenty to get out one of the 2 last tail enders Glenn or Bret. But oh well we just better win the next 2 and take the ashes off the aussies for the first time since like i can remember.

    Four overs is not very long, it's a shame because they completely dominated the match. I thought Harmison absolutely wasted his last two overs. Giles was terrible through out the match though. They shouldn't have bowled him so much. Bret Lee is not a bad batsman, so I am not suprised about him.

    Still though it's one of the most exciting ashes series in ages.

    Ok this is too hard. Also I realised there are other sites that have already done it. So go here:

    it seems pretty good.

    @moe

    Yep a cricket ball hurts a bit when it hits you. But it also goes a long way when you hit it nicely.

    I have been reading the rules and it's still hard to understand..... Maybe I just ask my friends to show the rules as we play this game live.

    To be honest it's easiest to understand if you just either watch or join in with a game.

    Yeah, but here in Norway, Cricet hasn't been so popular as in England, India, Pakistan and Australia. I'm lucky that my one of my friend know the rules and know how to play it.

    Well thankfully it was just a little rain. England are still doing well but another wicket now and I think Australia won't be too unhappy on a good batting pitch.

    Jones and Flintoff getting in a good partnership. But Flintoff needs to take this into a hundred, doesn't do that to often.

    No I am a big fan of Flintoff (Lancashire fan too) he has played a great innings and deserved his hundred. It's been good to see him performing with the bat lately.
