Australia once again beat England convincingly by 8 wickets. K. Pieterson's 80+ innings gave England a mere respectable 242 runs to to defend but their bowlers failed to stand up against aussie batting line up. Quick fire 60 of Gilchrist and then Ponting's 82 gave aussie a easy win by 8 wickets at the end.

Flintof Played Very Well.................What Happened to Newzealand? They Couldn't Win this Close Match. Should We Wait and Talk for Next Two Match? Next two will be Played by Australia. So, Do You Think The Result is already Known or There can be Something Else?

I Think We Should Concentrate on Next England-Newzealand Match. Because The Probability of Winning for Australia is 95%. Any Chance for Rest of 5%? Don't Think So.

Any English win makes it harder for BD to catch them in ODI rankings. So I hope that win against NZ was the last one for this year.

<a href="http://content-usa.cricinfo.com/cbs/content/current/story/277393.html">One frustrated reporter</a> :D

i especially liked the last two paragraphs:


But enough pontificating about the same old spiel. It really is too depressing. Perhaps, in the spirit of this bloated, corporatised era of the game, it's time to automate our reports on these abominable contests. In fact, why wait for the technology to catch up? There is already in existence a handy 'bullshit generator' that, with a couple of quick tweaks, could easily churn out 700 words for next Friday's 252-run defeat against the Aussies.


I've been playing with it for the last five minutes and the machine has already identified three of Team England's key requirements, which is three more than any of Flintoff and Fletcher's press conferences have so far managed. Three quick clicks reveal that they need to "engineer robust partnerships", "target seamless channels" and "unleash next-generation models". Over to you Mr Ken Schofield and the ECB Review Committee. Let's see if you can better that bull, on and off the pitch.

January 23, 2007, 12:57 PM
Hahahaha a good one by Andrew Miller

My favourite paragraph


In the meantime, the CB Series is providing quite enough spleen-venting among the press corps. One-day cricket brings everyone all out in a rash of adjectives. A quick scour of the wires reveals that, on other pages, England's latest performance has been described as "woeful", "desperate", "shambolic", "pathetic" and "flaky", as they were "hammered", "blitzed", "trounced" and "destroyed" by the "rampant", "buoyant" and "determined" Kiwis.

This has to be the worst team England ever had since they invented the game. Honestly, they were playing like Kenyans and Scotland.

They should have a Tri-Nation Series with Bangladesh, England and Zimbabwe. Even then I reckon BD can knock them off.

Australia 343/5 Overs 50
(M. Hayden 117, R. Ponting 111)
New Zealand 274/5 Overs 44.2
(Oram 68*, McCullam 17*)

Oram is on fire against Aussie. it's Oram whose blitz is really a concern for the Aussie now.

January 28, 2007, 10:45 PM
I don't Want to Say anything about Australia. They Played their Game. But I must Say Congratulation to Newzealand. Specially Jacob Oram. What an Innigns he Played! Finally, NZ couldn't win. According to Current Situation I doubt wheather any team can win against Aus. But At least Ponting Got Afraid. Finally NZ Reached to 335.

I am Not Sure but I think NZ will be the Opponant of Aus in Final. Time will Say Everything. Good Luck Aus, NZ and Eng for Next Match.

January 31, 2007, 12:30 AM
This is the First Season, When Perth Wicket is Helping Spinners. In 9th Match England-Newzealand the Wicket was a Turning One. I Surprised to see the Bowling of English Spinners. They Couldn't Use the Turn. They Were Pitching The Ball in Totally Wrong Area. I am Sure any Sub-Continent Spinner (Murali, Kaneria, Kumble or Harbhajan) Could Destroy The OPonant Batting Line-Up. England allow Newzealand to Score 318. An International Spinner should Know Where to Pitch the Ball in a Turning Wicket. If s/he has Lack of Experience It is the Duty of Captain to Guide him/her. Flintof Failed to Do That.

Newzealand also Did the Same Mistake but They were Better than English Spinner.

Congrtulation to Newzealand and Good Luck for The Next Match.

Australia are 142/5 in 26 overs chasing England's 292 .Maybe it's safe to assume that aussies will be losing this one ,they just lost Hayden and Hussey.
For a change , I would like England to win :up:

Carte Blanche
February 2, 2007, 04:50 AM
White and Bracken in crease now. This should be easy sailings for the Pommies from here. Yes orzoo, I'm glad to see them win too (for a change) ;)

Aussies bundled out for 200. End of England's miserable streak.

Convincing 92 run win :D

British press is now jumping up and down. Finally Englad defeated Australi and in style. Everyone will be more than happy and will return home head high.

Ready for more defeats against any opposition ;)

They jump up and down even after inisgnificant victories. I bet some of them are already planning the WC parade at Trafalgar Square.

Finally the Poms managed to win something ...
i was really getting tired of Aussies winning so comprehensively matches after matches...
hopefully the rest of the series would be more competitive...

but i was really gutted to see the empty seats at the stadium... hell i was desparate to go to the match which was apparently "sold out"... even more gutted when the comms were talking in tele that some people lost interest in the game and was selling the tix in ebay for as low as 5 bucks...

too bad....

Wow! NZ is going very strong. 275 already and still 5 more balls to bowl. Aus will find it very tough. If nz wins today, eng is out.

England in the finals. Hmm!!

Australia is still rotating their players. Watson in for the finals. It would be interesting. If a team takes a 2-0 lead will the third match be played??

Why waste all that time? Just ship out the Pommies on the first boat and hand the runners up trophy to the Kiwis.

At-Last England made it Possible. I also Thought Newzealand will be the Oponant of Australia in Final. But They Failed. Nothing can be Estimated in Cricket. Always a Game of Glorious Uncertainity.

Well Done England. Actually I Surprised that Steven Flemming Scored a Century but Newzealand Lost. English were just Fired after Beating Australia. Is it Possible for England to Beat Australia in Final?

GOOD LUCK Australia and England for the Final.

Can England rise from the Ashes? (pun intended!)

Beating Australia in the best-of-three decider is just the potion England needs ahead of the WC. Their chances in WI is open to debate, but gaining revenge from Australia should be a huge boost to their confidence. I hope that happens.

Well done England, especially Collingwood for his second successive ton. C'mon boys, just one more win!

England Team is Not Bad. Unfortunately They Faced the Strongest Test Team in the History of World Cricket. But In ODI Australians are Not Unbeatable. It has been Proved.

It doesn't Mean Australian Kingdom Has Finished or Australian Played Bad. On the 1st Final Australian Played Their Game. England Played Better Than Them. That's Why They Won. Australian Kingdom May Finish If They Loose The WC. Otherwise Their System will Help Them to Continue. So, It is Possible to Play Better than Australia in ODI. Hope Australia Can Come back in The Second Final. I am Sure They will. We can See One More Match. If They Cannot, Nothing to Say.................

Finaly, Congratulation to England (Specially Collingwood) and Best of Luck to Both of The Team for the Next Two Game.

England 246/8 (50 ov)
Australia 63/5 (11.6/41 ov)

Australia require another 164 runs with 5 wickets and 29 overs remaining

This is going to be very close!

10.50pm England's dressing erupts into celebration as the announcement comes through confirming that they have won this match by 34 runs and with it the CB Series 2-0.

This is the funniest result I have ever seen in a cricket tournament.

I bet, if England play another 10 match series with Ausiies they will lose 9 out of 10 times. :)

Anyway, many congrats to England for the win and for providing the fuel to British press to write 10,000 article about England's chances of winning the world cup. :D

How is the D/L method calculated?
England had 4.92 run rate, Australia had a much higher 5.62... and England won?!:confused:

Alien
February 11, 2007, 08:17 AM
This sucks. Australia got rattled up like they are some club team. And Brett Lee was shocking. I just wonder why on earth they dropped Shaun Tait. He was doing brilliant.

Australia may have the world's best team but they sure have the worlds worst selectors.

At once stage the D/L method was in Australia's advantage, when they were 64/5 after 12ov, but needed 164 from 29ov.

Thanks for clearing to all. Still I don't like the D/L and I hope no-match of the next world cup will be decided this way.

Another useless tournament. Just give the Champion's trophy to Australia and let England and New Zealand fight it out for the runner-up spot.

Nothing to Say. It is Proved again "Cricket is Glorrious Game of Uncertainity".............................Actually England Played Very Well. Somehow They Made it Possible.Collingwood Played Beautifully.

Finally Congratulation to England. Never Mind Australia and Good Luck to Both of Them for WC.
