Bunch of petty kunts
Not true.Rumours the poms refused drinks after the game.
if true that’s appalling. A new level of bitterness and petulance that’s embarrassing for English cricket and their fans.
Nah, it’s poor form. The aussies waited for an hour and a half. Petulant.Not true.
There was stuff going on in the England dressing room with Broad, Ali and a couple of others. By the time that finished, the Aussie players had left. The word is they agreed to meet up for drinks later that evening.
Nah, it’s poor form. The aussies waited for an hour and a half.
Maybe they should have had the drinks first and then done their thing.Nah, it’s poor form. The aussies waited for an hour and a half. Petulant.
...getting that ridiculous ball change ( which will lead to a change in how that happens I believe )....
Certainly older than 37 overs it seems!
An investigation is set to be launched into the Ashes ball-swapping fiasco, amid speculation the offending ball that cost Australia victory was from a previous series when a more bowler-friendly product was used in Tests.
When Australia was 0-135 and hunting history-making Ashes glory in the fifth Test at The Oval earlier this week, a replacement ball granted to England after just 37 overs swung and seamed as if it had a mind of its own and completely changed the course of the game.
Such was the bizarre way the ball behaved from when it was brought out to the middle to the end of the innings, it played strikingly similar to a batch of balls produced from 2018-19 when the Dukes’ ball proved devastating for batsmen.
