Test Match Cricket


#4441

Australia went from 88/3 at the start of play this morning to 119 all out in just under 16 overs to lose by 492 runs. South Africa win the series 3-1

That was the 4th highest loss by runs in 2,302 test matches and the worst since 1934 when Sir Donald Bradman was terrorising England at the Oval.

Looking increasingly likely that Justin Langer will replace Darren Lehmann as Australia coach.


#4443

A weasel.


#4444

Indeed. Plus ca change.
Dizzy should have got the job but he’s too nice.


#4445

Alfie is a great guy. Ultra competitive too. A great fit if true.


#4446

Langer confirmed as the new Aussie coach.


#4447

Is there going to be play today?


#4451

If they have to wait for no rain to play well then unlikely. This is Ireland FFS. It rains frequently.


#4452

Torrential rain falling in Fingal right now. Hard to see


#4453

Shite


#4454

I’m aware of that mate, thanks.


#4455

Today washed out.


#4456

you’d want your head examined to try and schedule a game of cricket in Ireland


#4457

At least schedule it for June or July, you’d have a better chance of getting it on then. Its like these test matches in the South Island in New Zealand in March that just get rained off to a draw nearly every time.
