Well that great Australian -v- England test cricket challenge starts very soon. Australia, as you know, has been the world's leaders in cricket for some years now. BUT the England team has been making steady progress in rebuilding their abilities in recent years (with an Australian coach) and looks like this series will be close. Also England has the home country advantage. So you don't want to miss a bowl or an over, and you better phone your boss and let him know you won't be coming in today or tomorrow.

Cricket. Truly the world's most boring game.
5 days long and it still ends in a draw

Hi,
Cricket is cool, my indian collegues introduced me to it and I even own a bat. Unfortunately Germany sucks big time.

The poms have a small chance....they did rather well in the one day matches......but they still will not be able to win the Ashes this time around.

Do the Germans have a national team?!?

Go on England

Australia are 97-5 at lunch. For those not in the know. That is not a good score so far

Ohh... the germans do have one. It's just really, really bad ! And most of the local teams are made up from english, indians and pakistanis (and the sri lankians of course).

I think its our best chance of winning for the past 20 years. It will be a close series IMHO.

Cricket might take five days- but that's a lot shorter than some silly bike race over a couple of hills. I suppose we could play volleyball or golf?

I find Golf a pointless sport. IMO

Tennis or football. Then we're talking

Oh gee thanks Speedy....I had almost forgotten that horror of my carrier losses, and you've just brought the memories flooding back. Thanks mate.
But just remember this, your team is yet to bat.
