The Ashes Game Five – I Win

Australia 280 & 281 England 644 England win the game by an innings and 83 runs. England retain the Ashes and win the series 3-1. Whelp, the fact that I had an awesome final round in the Fantasy Ashes league was little consolation for what has been a miserable summer of cricket for the Aussies.  What an absolute hiding.  I ...

The Ashes Game Four – Checkmate

For some reason, I guess I forgot to blog about the end of the fourth game in the Ashes.  Anyway, its not like there was much to write about.  Australia were bowled out for 108 in a truly awful first innings batting collapse and England went on to hand them a second crushing defeat where they won by more than ...

A Very Inoue Christmas 2010

We had a rather low-key family affair for Christmas this year in the Inoue household.  The poor weather we’ve been having meant we didn’t really get to venture outdoors and we didnt have plans to travel anywhere.  So we spent the day at home with Karen, Dom and Matt chowing down on a giant seafood feast.  Having said that, nobody ...

The Ashes 2010/11 Game Three – Applesauce, bitch.

Ahh, the beauty of test match cricket.  In the middle of Day Two in the third game of the Ashes, all appeared lost for the Aussies.  Already down 1-0 in a home series where England held the Ashes, they were dismissed for a lowly 268 and were bowling at a supremely confident English batting lineup that had reached seventy eight ...

The Ashes Game One – Brisbane

The first Ashes game of the series concluded in Brisbane yesterday. The build up promised an evenly contested battle between Australia and the Old Enemy and it certainly delivered.  The game was a seesaw contest, back and forth, over the five days.  On the first day, Australia appeared to have the ascendancy on the back of a hattrick by Peter ...

The Ashes 2009

It’s been an entertaining 3 days of cricket so far. Australia appear to be in control of this test but there is still a shade of uncertainty after the loss of 3 quick wickets this morning. The clear highlight of this game so far is of course Kevin Pietersen throwing away England’s control of the match with his amazing dismissal ...

And so it begins…

Cricket’s oldest rivalry has just got under way as the Mighty England face the expelled convicts from years passed.. Alot has been made in the build up of this 5-test series with the Aussies having smashed England the last time they played in Australia 5-0..  But with most of the Aussies’ best players retiring after that series and the new ...
