Let's watch Australia **win** the ashes

Recommended Posts

Thought i would create an Aussie cricket thread, seeing that there wasn't one. Does anyone think we have any realistic shot of beating England? I don't think we'll get swept but our batsmen are just terrible. And now Mikey Arthur has just been sacked. Were a rabble at the moment.

Mickey Arthur sacked as Australia's coach

Mickey Arthur has been sacked as Australia's head coach less than three weeks before the start of the Ashes. Cricket Australia is yet to officially announce the decision but the chief executive James Sutherland and general manager of team performance Pat Howard are due to hold a press conference in Bristol on Monday morning (UK time) to confirm the move...

What a fucking circus.

 

Possible 10-0 on the cards but it does rain in England :up:

Supposedly Darren Lehman has been instated as the new coach, he should get the squad to practice a rain dance! Wonder what the odds are on a 10 nil sweep

Cricket is an average sport.

Cricket behind Union and forms of racing is the sport of kings ya stooge.

There is nothing more exciting than a five day test that goes down to the wire. Serious. The way a match can change for each team is a thing of beauty and that's why the five day format is one of the best forms of sport.

Fingers crossed for all matches to be rain affected however.

No, because we are unlikely to win, so a drawn test series is preferable to a 0-5 whitewash by the English.

I am a glass half empty kind of person when discussing the current state of our test team. :)

Absolute mess ATM. Steve smith coming in as a potential batsman makes things so much worse.

Need to get players like quiney, Rodgers and bailey test spots instead of overrated Flogs like Hughes and Watson. (Will be happy to be proven wrong)

Warner still maybe getting time in the crease this series shows how poor Australia's batting options really are.

The guy should of got told to pack up and go home.

Maybe we can have 4 wash outs and somehow fluke a win somewhere so we can get the Ashes back. Our bowling line-up is fine. Seriously can't see us posting a score though.

The lead up games haven't exactly been promising, Hauritz has probably done enough to secure the spinning spot, but apparently Ashton Agar has proved a handy little spinner too.

 

As for the batting, well the less said the better.

Don't we need to obtain the ashes or have it in our possession to lose it?

 

Let's watch Australia contend the Ashes series? I'd throw my support behind that.

I can't remember such a miserable batting line-up in the past 20 years. Wonder what the odds are of Siddle being our highest run scorer during the series?

Khwaja is not quite good enough but i like the sik kent too lol

 

Symonds is busy making 500,000 rupies a minute in the IPL, and lets not forget his fishing commitments.

SWAN, SWAN WILL TEAR YOU APART...AGAIN

You're not English pal :up:

Already making excuses for getting some of your own back.

 

Andrew Symons was born in Birmingham England,but nobody cared when it went your way.

haha yeah ok have that one bloke. How about: Adam Hollioake, Allan Lamb, Andrew Strauss, Andy Caddick, Ben Hollioake, Colin Cowdrey, Devon Malcolm, Gladstone Smalll, Graeme Hick, Ian Trott, Kevin Pieterson, Nasser Hussein, Matt Prior, Tony Greig...

I actually don't care tbh. Hoping England win 10-0. Swann & Cook probably 2 of my all time favorite players and I hate the Australian cricket team atm compared to the Australian team I fell out of love with 10 years ago.
