Ashes deciding test match final day
V/s
A T20 match.

I would pick the former. Its like cars as you said. Compare two but ultimately buy one !
I'll shuffle channels in this situation ...

Just imagine had this been the case with cars ...

Guys did anyone notice Jacob Oram got a Hat trick in this match ? Neither the commentators/players noticed this.
He got Hattrick in successive over, may be because of this it went unnoticed

Fully agree with each word you have written.

I watched most part of both series and 2005 not only had better quality cricket but was also more thrilling and entertaining.

This time AUS wasn't that big a force like in 2005 so thats a difference.
Now teams believe they can beat australia anytime.

Gambhir out of the ongoing COMPAQ tri-series because of groin injury, he will now be replaced by Virat Kholi.
Opening looks a bit fragile here now, it will be Karthik and Kholi.

Nopes, I think Sachin and Karthik will open. Dravid comes in at three followed by Yuvraj and Dhoni and Raina. And then Pathan.

On paper, looks ok to me

Make it 66/5.

It's good to see Shane Bond back in the NZ Team.

Not watching the match, but going by the figures it seems that Bhajji has been outperformed yet again by a part time spinner !

On a spin friendly wicket, going wicketless @ 5 rpo seems quite bad, or did he bowl better than the figures suggest ?

Bhajji got beaten on the head by a camera man. Needs a few days to recover

BTW looks like seamers are doing most of the damage. What kind of a wicket is it?? Bond friendly??

Karthik was given out for for a ball which would have hit the 5th stump on the leg side ...

Dharmasena needs an eye specialist ..
