Cricket 24x7 - All the cricket

Breaking/Brief news

    August 07, 2009

    Where have we seen this one before?

    Australia embark on high profile tour, with a squad light on bowling. Injuries impact the selection of the XI. Amidst much speculation about his inclusion, a former captain of the host country announces his retirement. While the series is on, one of the host country's main bowlers also announces his retirement.

    Australia pretty much dominate the first test, but can't quite close things out. The cricket early on is gripping, but largely attritional with neither side apparently willing to risk defeat while pursuing victory. There are claims related to 'moral victory', 'momentum', etc. after the first test.

    The Aussies are thrashed in the 2nd test, at a venue where until then, they'd lost only once in the ground's history.

    Somewhere along the way, individual batting records were broken.

    Australia's much-hyped & aggressive opener fails miserably.

    This is so much 'deja-vu all over again'! Now all we need is an elbowing incident, a ban, some very defensive strategic bowling by the host team and bizarre captaincy by Australia's skipper.
