1st test,Australia Vs England,Brisbane,Day2
Wow!, as we all hoped the first match of the ashes is very evenly poised and thanks to James Anderson who helped removing two dangermen Watson & Ponting. The wicket of Watson was a beauty , it was a perfect outswinger and Ponting’s was a mistimed shot played moving away from the leg stump and nicking it to Prior.The spell after Ponting left was too much for Clarke and Katich to handle as Finn and Anderson were showing glimpses of finding rhythm in Gabba.Then the inevitable happened ,one more wicket fell and for aussis’s vein it was fifty maker Katich who played a mistimed stroke back to Finn and providing the much needed sudden breakthrough’s @the start of the second session. At the moment Hussey and Clarke both batsmen yet to find their form and not in good patch are in the middle .Hussey eventually nicked his very first ball towards swann in the second slip but luckily it felt short of him.the fiery spell of Anderson and Finn is making waves in Gabba and i am one of the lucky one to witness great seam bowling. The Aussies don’t look too good but Clarke and Hussey are batsmen who would rise to the occasion and prove their metal .One is for sure the match is shaping up like having a great 5th day and a definite result. This is why we love Ashes and Why i write about it. @ 8.55 a.m IST score is AUS-114/3
Let’s Hope”aussies get skittled out having a lead of 10 or 20 runs and let us all have an amazing second innings fight”
