js34603: I like coming into the cricket threads because I am not convinced you people are not just making up these words to fark with the non cricket world. If you are, maximum trolling achieved, you guys win.
Trapper439: I also really like the way that these cricket threads are never greenlit before the lunch break,
WhyteRaven74: Trapper439: I also really like the way that these cricket threads are never greenlit before the lunch break,If the start time for the day, preferably denoted in US Eastern Standard Time, were added on to the end of the headline it should get the thread greened on time for the start. Also if someone with TF is around to see it's in the que, can contact an admin to get it on the sports tab ASAP if play has started.
Trapper439: I honestly thought that you were the person submitting these links. TIL.
johnny queso: Strange to this noob that they start a 5 day event on Friday, but glad that I will get to finally see the last two days at work next week.
WhyteRaven74: So much for that partnership, interestingly enough the record for most runs in a test partnership was for a third wicket partnership, 624 runs, yep a triple century AND a double century. And the next highest record is for a second wicket partnership, also by Sri Lanka, also involving a triple century and a double century. Yeah Sri Lanka has played test cricket like it was an ODI.
Trapper439: Some of the pitches in the sub-continent are absolute roads, though.
Trapper439: Ponting or either of the Waugh brothers would have gotten a run out there.And now we see a graphic showing that Alec Stewart is the second highest run scorer in English history (behind Gooch). I never would have suspected that.
chakas: For real. e.g. http://www.espncricinfo.com/ci/engine/current/match/233797.html
WhyteRaven74: And for all the runs scored on Sri Lankan and Indian grounds, the greatest wicket taker in test history is Sri Lankan.
Trapper439: And both of their greatest moments were raising a whole shiatload of millions of charity money for Sri Lanka in the wake of the 2004 Boxing Day Tsunami.
chakas: Sly mini-collapse with both established batsmen getting out within a few overs. Couple more wickets as the new batsmen try to get settled again after tea and the Aussies will be well on top. Having said that, Bell could also do what he has been doing all series and wrestle the advantage back for the English. Will be a very interesting first half hour of the 3rd session.
chakas: May have been wrong about the Bell thing...
Trapper439: Clarke makes a good review for once.I thought that was going over at first sight. After watching the review I thought it was possibly going down leg. But it ended up being a great review. About bloody time.
PowerSlacker: It's amazing to me how Australia have turned this series around. It's a shame the third test was rained to a draw.
Trapper439: Bairstow reviews now. Doesn't even consult Bresnan. There's no way he hit that ball. Umpire's call, so if it's not missing then it's out.L to the O to the L. Hawkeye says it hit the bail by the smallest of margins, so it's out.We Aussies have had to eat several millimetre decisions like that already in this series, so sorry but I can't help but crow about that a little.
Trapper439: WhyteRaven74: And for all the runs scored on Sri Lankan and Indian grounds, the greatest wicket taker in test history is Sri Lankan.Murali was a great. You'll see a lot of Warne v Muralitharan debates on the internet.I prefer to classify one as the greatest wrist spinner ever, and the other as the greatest finger spinner ever.And both of their greatest moments were raising a whole shiatload of millions of charity money for Sri Lanka in the wake of the 2004 Boxing Day Tsunami.And Cook is gone!!! Bird gets his first Ashes wicket!
