Lessons That Have Been Learned

So both Australia and England have been playing some warm-up games.

What have we learned?

1. KP is in fine form.
2. Ian Bell really can't cope with batting against Australia.
3. Steve Harmison looks old.
4. Mitchell Johnson has finally taken that ugly stud out of his mouth.
5. North has hopefully had his big score of the summer.
6. And Michael Clarke.
7. And Ricky Ponting.
8. And Hughes.
9. Brett Lee has peaked.
10. Cook is just warming up.
11. Anderson is lulling Australia into a false sense of security by bowling badly.
12. Monty's back.

NMG, is "12. Monty's back" another English injury?

And what have you got against Marcus North and Phil Hughes' first names?

The Nightwatchgirl said...

Stani - NWG has nothing against their first names. It's a psychological trick she learned in the army to knock their confidence.

Stani Army said...

Army? Stani Army?

By the way, the "NMG" was not a typo; it's my new name for you. Wanna guess what it stands for?

The Nightwatchgirl said...

uh oh.

Come on then, Stani. What does it stand for?

Bollocks. Straya could pick anyone in the touring party and still beat Engerland hands down. Hauritz, Schmauritz. Bing Lee will bounce it and go for the neck in Cardiff, the Johnson kiddie will be well aware Poms hate quick lefties, Ol’ man Siddle might find some upside down sideways forward reverse swing swing, and Clark [no e] will think he's on a slow, flat deck at Bankstown Oval and bowl fast accordingly. The Strayan top five batting order will look after themselves, and Engerland will be required to cop a gigantic tusk up the runter. It’s game over, I’m afraid.

See....wasn't so bad.

The Nightwatchgirl said...

Nightmaregirl? That's not very nice Stani.

Neither are you NMG, neither are you :o( used to be though, but then something happened....I don't know what.
