The phone rings in the Australian Cricket Team's changing room. "G'day. Could I speak to Michael Clarke, please?" "Aww, look, sorry mate, he's just gone out to bat." "Oh, that's alright, mate. I'll ha

Not even a little bit funny....   Well maybe a little...

Haud the fecking bus here, fanny baws.   None of my overly pale and thoroughly freckled Scottish skin is in the game.  I am merely the facilitator between a bunch of convicts and a pack of privately

Oooft.  Aussies sitting comfy then lost a cheap wicket.  Still 78-1 isn't a bad start.

Could have been 1 for 0 in the third over but the slips were fielding too close, so none of them really went for the catch...close let off for Rogers who will prob now score a ton..usually the scenario after getting a let off early...

So definitely advantage Australia.  The wicket's giving nothing though.  Expect a tedious draw.

Sorry for those following it but its end of day 1 scores..

 

Chris Rogers and Steven Smith both scored unbeaten hundreds in a record-breaking partnership as Australia dominated the first day of the second Ashes Test against England at Lord's on Thursday.

At stumps, Australia were 337 for one after cashing in on captain Michael Clarke's good fortune in winning the toss and batting first on a placid pitch.

Rogers was a Test-best 158 not out at the close and Smith, dropped on 50, unbeaten on 129.

Their partnership was so far worth 259 runs and broke the previous Australia second-wicket record at Lord's of 231 set by Bill Woodfull and Don Bradman which had stood since 1930.

England's lone success in 90 overs' of toil was when off-spinner Moeen Ali had David Warner (38) caught in the covers by James Anderson shortly after the first hour's play.

Not since Geoff Marsh (125 not out) and Mark Taylor (141 not out) took their side to 301 without loss against England on the first day of the fifth Test at Trent Bridge in 1989 had Australia produced such a commanding display with the bat on the opening day of an Ashes match.

It was just the response the Ashes-holders, looking to win their first Test series in Britain in 14 years, would have wanted following England's 169-run win in the first Test in Cardiff.

Stupid question from the Yank. Are hundreds the same as century's? I've heard century used before in cricket scoring.

 

BTW, we have a group of Pakistani nationals here on Guam who like to fart around on weekends playing cricket at one of the local beach parks. They get quite a lot of gawking as locals here are not very familiar with cricket.
