    I thought you were only 24 years old

    There were some poor Strine batting line ups in the early 80's

    Have no idea who he might be Al. I read someone's post saying our PC was indeed a permanent ban now reappeared by other nefarious means. Perhaps he will comment? Maybe not though.

    Posted Nov 30th. Seems like the cricket "experts" on this thread got it all wrong.

    I went 3-1 Australia on the opening post so I'm still in with a decent chance.....

    May the best man win. My educated guess is no win for England. Just not good enough to build one match-winning innings and bowlers not good enough on Aussie wickets to bowl them out twice.
