What a marvellous afternoon of cricket England played today. I must admit, after the previous test ended in humiliation, I thought the series was over, and despite a sufficient first day of the current and final match, I was still unconvinced by England and thought the test and indeed the series would be drawn.

I started to watch the match this morning, but after England lost their remaining two wickets and struggled to get the opening Aussie batsmen out, I went into town to pick up a few things. Then things changed…

Although being away from Sky Sports and FiveLive, I was in constant communication with all the goings-on through my phone, thanks to the ECB Cricket app and Karl from work sending me messages, differing from despair to delight, depending on how well/poorly England were bowling.

I got back to my flat just in time to witness a total collapse of Australian batsmen, at the hands of some superb English bowling. England may have lost a few wickets themselves in their second innings, but it now looks like only a collapse of monumental proportions will stop England winning the test and therefore take back that little urn of ashes they truly deserve and yearn for. Then again, this is England, so I’m not ruling anything out.

IF England are to win the series, I just hope they do it at the weekend, so I have the pleasure of watching it on Sky as opposed to learning of the victory on the BBC website at work.

Fingers crossed this blog hasn’t jinxed the whole thing!

  • About Me

    So you stumbled across my blog. No doubt after searching for something bizarre on Google. Before you hit that 'Back Button', why not stay and have a read for a few minutes?

    If you are after a website which gives advice on how to hack an iPhone X, download the latest Steven Seagal movie, or view nudy ladies, you've come to the wrong place and may now press 'Back'.

    However, if you would like a lifestyle blog, written by a 30-something chap, living in Bath (England), feast your eyes on this.

    You won't discover how to copy PlayStation 4 games. What you will find is a blog, covering life in the West Country, the highs and lows of supporting two unsuccessful football teams, while sharing a house with a wife and rabbit.

    All written by a man, somewhere on the sanity-scale between normal and eccentric.
