Well Siddle just got Mathews out. Things are pretty tense at the moment especially after Australia's failure to bowl South Africa out in Adelaide. Siddle is bowling his heart out and producing some quality deliveries. I reckon Australia will manage to get the wickets here. Rain rain stay away...

Here's hoping the break will be long enough for Siddle this time. Worried he will get bowled into the ground again today.

One more wicket to win, Siddle is bowling now. Starc has been bowling pretty well and has been generating some good pace.

What can I say, I saw a thread title that made me chuckle. It's not like writing 2 lines takes a long time out of my day.

It's amazing what you can accomplish when you don't waste a day watching cricket :P

sums up that you are a moron

tense 1 (tns)
adj. tens·er, tens·est
1. Tightly stretched; taut. See Synonyms at stiff, tight.
2. In a state of mental or nervous tension.
3. Characterized by nervous tension or suspense.
4. Linguistics Enunciated with taut muscles, as the sound () in keen

in·tense (n-tns)
adj. in·tens·er, in·tens·est
1. Possessing or displaying a distinctive feature to an extreme degree: the intense sun of the tropics.
2. Extreme in degree, strength, or size: intense heat.
3. Involving or showing strain or extreme effort: intense concentration.

hardly a trivial difference

tense is the correct word for a day of cricket like that, if you had a clue about cricket instead of just trying to be a mad c*** with posting pointless s*** because you don't like cricket you'd know this

spec eds rubbing off on you eh?

All good - was just seeing what time you were playing tonight. We need an extra player for 7pm, thought you might like another game in the dud league if you weren't already playing at that time. Beat up on some n00bs

why do you feel the need to s*** on the interests of others? feeling a bit bitter about something?
just live and let live dude. You don't like it? then move on to some other thread.

Back on topic, our bowling attack is looking a bit iffy atm, excluding siddle and starc, but I can't wait to see Starc bowl more often. though I hope they don't bring in that useless f***, Mitch Johnson

We have some serious injury worries. Ryan Harris, James Pattinson, Pat Cummings and Ben Hilfenhaus are all out injured. I might even be forgetting someone. Our best lineup would probably be Siddle, Harris and Pattinson I reckon. Maybe Hilfenhaus if it looks like there might be some movement in the air. Without all those injuries it is almost like we are spoiled for choice when it comes to quicks. Pat Cummings is an exciting prospect but I am not sure if he would be an automatic selection just yet. I can't wait to see how he goes in a test series without breaking down.

Fpot: Completely agree.

Siddle, Harris and Pattinson are our best bowling line up. I would probably interchange Lyon and Starc as the fourth bowler pitch dependent. With those 3 quicks my fourth would preferably be a lefty.

Far from uncoordinated. Lol at that one master blaster.
I dont hate cricket, just what its become. A non-event. Youll get over it.
Now how do you justify doing f*** all again? Oh thats right.
Im off to watch the thrilling test match. To quote Merv Hughes

Starc was getting some consistent 145km/h pace yesterday. When was the last time there was a pace bowler who bowled 150km/h on a regular basis? Brett Lee and Shoaib Akhtar used to hit that mark fairly often. Is it just my imagination or did Steyn used to bowl around that mark? He didn't really seem to break 140km/h too often when he bowled in the tests this summer.

Harris is around, but I don't think we are going to see him at all this summer. He had planned on making a comeback during Big Bash, but that has been aborted from what I understand. I can't see him getting his way back in now at his age & with his injury problems. A shame, as he is unreal at his peak.

Wish they would give Ben Cutting a crack. Has been QLD's best bowler for the last couple of summers, has domestic first class centuries to his name and just seems like a genuine good guy. Saying that, keen to see what this Jackson Bird hype train is all about (although I can't see him playing in Melbourne).

We need a f*****g spinner too. This summer has really shown how incapable Lyon is of cleaning up a middle-lower order in the 4th innings.
