Post-Perth thoughts – don’t panic England fans (via Chasing Australia)

Post-Perth thoughts – don't panic England fans Some post-Perth thoughts England aren’t as good as they were in Adelaide, or as bad as they were in Perth. They’ve been on an upward curve under Andy Flower, and they’re still on that. Sometimes a heavy defeat can be an excellent way to refocus and banish complacency.

Mitchell Johnson doesn’t deserve much praise. Yet. (via Cricketwise)

I was one of the many who was heartily sick and tired of him and his wayward bowling.

Operation Ashes Retrieval – Day 13 of 25 (via Thoughts from the Dustbin)

Third Ashes Test Day Three – The Final Over of the Day (via 99.94)

Third Ashes Test Day Three – The Final Over of the Day Ball One 4.30am – Is there a growing case for the return of local umpires?
