NWG Is Having A Tantrum

Cook: go straight pass go, do not collect £200 and to jail with you.

Nightwatchgirl Is Busy Today

NWG is doing the rain dance today.

All day.

No breaks.

Let the rain commence.

Are Australia playing for a draw?

Please?

Update: This is unbearable. Lightening would be preferable.

Somebody please get a wicket.

Anyone will do right now.

NWG would be very happy.

Wagging Tails

Oh England. How NWG loves you so.

Especially Graeme Swann. You rule. What attitude.

The only burning question is: can England's bowling attack back up this strong position?

The way the ball is spinning.....

Oh it's juicy.

Ashes Day 1

What a day.

Ups and downs.

Cross words and smiles.

NWG is in the belief that it's pretty much even. Australia bowled well in periods. But some brilliant batting by KP, Flintoff and Prior certainly helped England along.

336-7 is a good first day score, considering the pressure and the situation.

Now all that needs to happen is for the England bowling attack to make some serious indents in the Australia batting line-up.

NWG is pleased.

Go England.

Ashes: Day 1, Post 1

Lunch: Well, not the best of starts England has ever produced. Disappointing, yet at the same time a relief that it has finally begun. Can someone please tell NWG why it is that the Australian's chew gum like they are masticating cows? Anyone?

KP is not looking comfortable. At all. Bad sign.

Andrew Strauss has joined Alastair.

Breaking news: Alastair Cook has been ordered back to the nets to learn how to bat.

Falsehoods During The Ashes

That Michael Jackson will be opening the bowling for England. Or Australia. As a hologram.

That Australia will win 5-0.

That if England win, each player will get a knighthood.

That it will be sunny for every day that cricket is played.

That Shane Warne will be a good commentator.

That Steve Harmison will get a hat-trick.

That Mitchell Johnson will slip on a cricket ball and sprain his ankle.

That NWG will not watch any cricket because she's simply too worried.

That there won't be any beer drunk at any games.

That Ricky Ponting and Harry Potter have something in common. Just like Harry's scar starts to hurt when Voldemort is near, so Ponting's scar starts to ache when he sees Steve Harmison.
