Aye I made sure to get him the World Cup winners edition as well! 
 

We got to the New Zealand game at CLS but I watched the final at his. It’s pretty much the most I’ve celebrated a sporting event, maybe tied with Rob Lee’s goal at Wembley. :lol:

If only @Ken‘s missus hadn’t left him all those years ago, his liver wouldn’t be the enlarged mess it is now, and his neighbours might still speak to him.             

DINGO TOOK KENS BABY

Yeah would probably by right up there for me too. I was actually at the latter like. I really like the top but it was a slightly odd choice of design. Taking its inspiration from the England World Cup kit in 1992. Where we lost in the final (which you won’t remember but I remember skiving lessons to listen to)

Yeh it’s a bit strange like but I do like it*.  I think it was more the memories for my brother. We had a hell of time!

No I don’t remember the 92 final, I was far too young :lol: 

 

 

*take the logos off and most men over 80 have about 6 of the same style polo shirt.

I just meant it was tempting fate, re the result in 1992. Especially as we were favourites to win the tournament. I still don’t know how we didn’t lose that final like. Would love to see the Kiwis win a World Cup at some point

Oh, aye. It was an absolutely incredible game of cricket. There’s a few Indians live in our street (they’re actually from India before anyone starts :razz: ) and they were buzzing because it was such an amazing game, when I was talking to them just after it finished. I was more in a daze / emotionally exhausted :lol:

I’d been to the miners gala the day before and somehow ended up having a full night out in Newcastle. 
 

Woke up as soon as I could and set off for CLS. Turned up at my brothers door in the same clothes at 10 am, stinking of booze, carrying booze. We had a fun day :lol:

I put my Newcastle United head on quite early on in the match & fully expected to get beat for the duration.

My brother could barely watch the super overs so in the final one he filmed me instead as I ran off into the kitchen celebrating & back into the living room....colliding flush into a door. Painful.

What a summer, man. I didn’t think it could be topped but Stokes at Headingly probably just about did. I remember we were at a BBQ at Heaton Stannington FC. It was a lovely day and Newcastle later beat Spurs by a Joelinton goal. As if that wasn’t incredible enough. That innings, ffs. Everybody thought it was all over. When it became vaguely possible, I went outside and said to me Dad - you better come and fucking watch this, mind. Although I was worried even that would jinx it 😂 Nobody would even go for a piss. Then when Nosferatu missed the run out. Me heart nearly stopped. Then Jack Leach got the greatest single of all time. Absolutely incredible to watch

I’d been to see Newcastle Women vs Sunderland at the SOL. Everyone had been checking their phones and we really didn’t think anything would happen despite the progress Stokes was making, it felt delicate. (Because it was :lol: )

I had TMS on the way back on the radio and nearly crashed the car when we couldn’t lose & I went mental when we won.

I’ve listened to it back a couple of times since & It’s an unbelievable listen.They played it when  I was driving back from Scotland and England/Pakistan was rained off & I was proper getting goosebumps.

Bess with the luckiest five for you'll probably ever see this morning.  Bowled very averagely all morning and the Sri Lankans kept giving away wickets.  Then the we should have got the 10th wicket on a run out but somehow the tv umpire didn't see the bat wasn't grounded and gave a not out.  Cue one of the worst attempts at a reverse sweep for his fifth.  He wants to get the lottery on tonight.

Anyone watched Aus v India overnight/ this morning? 

How good seeing them Aussies twats humbled by India's second string? Rishab Pant is a very decent player in the mould of a wicket-keeping Ben Stokes. Pujara will be black and blue all over but fuck me he took everything they sent his way.

Probably one of the greatest test series ever played. The upside to being locked down is watching more of this than I could have in normal times.

Paines had a lot of credit since becoming test captain but as a player I can't see much in him at all.  And his captaincy has had a few knocks this series so they may well look to move him on.  Not sure who else would replace him as keeper, Wade does well in state and franchise cricket but always looks a weak link when he's played for Australia.

 

We should certainly take confidence for the Ashes in seeing an severly under strength India beat them.  Our upcoming games against India are another matter.

take smith and labuschagne out of the picture and their batting is pretty ordinary, but then ours is hit and miss too. 

their bowling attack is v good. i think we're still two evenly matched teams so hopefully it should be a compeittive series down there for the first time in a while

I had a cracking day. Was at Silverstone with my Dad for the MotoGP. Got back to the village we were staying in and watched the last 90mins of the Stokes innings, followed by us beating Spurs.

Was red hot all day too 😊

Aye Warner seems to be on the decline and then the rest of their batsman have been very average.  That might change to an extent if Puckovski and Green can deliver on their potential.  Both are averaging over 50 in first class cricket and have made decent starts to their Test careers too.  Green is taking wickets at 25 too.  He's not took an international wicket yet but if he can transfer that then they'll have the all rounder they've been crying out for year for.

Both teams look like they have some potentially very good young batsmen coming through.
