Amazing start 3 down in the first 10 minutes, great stuff from england


Stuff dreams are made of! another one before lunch will do just nicely. The Aussies tail is looking long now Johnson isn"t playing.

That said - their bowling attack looks to have more of a threat to it, will definately be more of a test for Cook and co

My "Katich top scorer" bet would have looked better if he"d actually managed to face a ball.

Goo arn England.

This just gets better & better.  Ponting won"t be in charge for the last test of the series (which will be a dead rubber anyway!!!)

Come on!

...if it weren"t for the rain we"d have had a couple of wickets to boot.

No need to get too excited its still 0-0 and we"ve not one it yet but they seem in disarray. To add to their woes though the captain in waiting has had a poor run and is currently only 75% fit.

Love it

Who would we have as the replacement guys...i feel its a little bit of a dilemma.

Tremlett is obv the fav but then there is the issue of the batting line up.

But then again do we need the bowlers to bat ;D

Well played boys a smashing destruction of the Aussies!

Apparently Shane Warne has come up with a 10 point plan to improve the fortunes of the Australian Cricket Team.



I have a few of my own



Make all test matches versus Australia 6 days rather than 5 to prolong their agony a little bit more.
Allow them 3 innings rather than 2 to try and even things up a little.
Widen the width of the wickets to 5 stumps when they bowl.
Make the square bigger when they bowl to reduce the number of wides Mitchell bowls.
Allow Australia to pick some of their women's team. (Controversial I know but half of them look like blokes anyway).
Ask the Barmy Army to sing a little quieter when Mitchell is bowling.
Tie Alistair Cooks feet together when he bats.
Outlaw reverse swing. (They can't do it so why should anyone else be allowed to).
Allow their WAG's to have a bowl if they want to.
Bring the boundaries into the edge of the square when they bat.


I have to admit to having a slight grin on my face this morning but my doctor says that it should only last another 2 and a half years!!!!



G'DAY? (It certainly is)

APAT Season 6 statistics
APAT Live Events 8, Attended 8, Final Tables 0, Cashes 0, Ranking Points 0, Having a word with myself 1.
