Allen in Oz BS: Bury 'The Ashes'? (214* d) RE: BS: Bury 'The Ashes'? 09 Aug 09

Three things astonished me:

1 The decision not to play Freddie, even if only as a batsman.

2. The decision to bat, when all Strauss had to do was send Australia in and let them worry about when to declare. A draw would have done the trick

2. The appaling England bowling when thay had only to emulate the Australian policy of bowling a good length at middle and off stump all day ...amazing !

Still, the last day was all good fun and holly hocks

AD 1943...and an Australian who played cricket for 47 years

It is still the paragon of games my friends
