Re: GO Australia!!!!!!!!!!!!

Wasn't a bad finish, very similar circumstances to the game last Sunday where Aus went down. Should be a close final, pity about Zim though. Didn't really make it a tri-series did they?

Hell Yeah!!!!

What a bloody fantastic finish that was. I have new faith in Brett Lee now, he held his own under pressure.

Re: GO Australia!!!!!!!!!!!!

What a finish - just about poo'd my pants when he hit that 6!!!

Even better was the look on the faces of the Indian team and supporters... despite all their bad sportsmanship and underhanded tactics, they still couldn't pull the win together. No doubt they will attribute their loss to a lack of throat lozenges...

Now, where's Pritey??

Re: GO Australia!!!!!!!!!!!!

Fantastic effort by the Aussies....THE WORLD CHAMPIONS...even after the blatant time wasting efforts by the Indians We still kicked their ass by one run hehe. The tail enders held up their end of the bargain. Hopefully the final we kick ass again. I feel for Zimbabwe. In a tri nations series with 2 of the best cricketing teams of late is a little bit of a morale let down. Ok they need the practise but really not in the same league.
However the Aussies need to get some of the new blokes in the team to give them a chance. The likes of Gillespe(sp?) are not going to be there much longer.

Truly the deepest kiss one can feel, and the one most sought after, is the one you will not survive....

Re: GO Australia!!!!!!!!!!!!

Awesome game, pity it rained...but at least it provided a nailbiting finish!!!

Great work by BLEE not only with the bat at the end, but also with the ball. Was the best of the aussie bowlers. He also fielded really well.

I must say though that Balaji went about bowling to Lee in the right way, but then bowled a ball that everyone should know is the only one BLEE can hit. An overpitched delivery outside off...always heads over the fence when Lee is facing. He absolutely loves that shot. Balaji just needed to keep pitching on a good length and getting the ball to head towards Lee's chest area...he bowled them earlier in the over and Lee could only ever manage a single at most. There was no way he was going to go for a huge pull shot.

Great match though, heightened by the fact that Martyn again failed
