Looking forward to the NY Test . Sydney mostly produces a pitch that has a little bit for everyone . I wonder with all the complains against the Melbourne one if they leave a bit more grass on it.
Happy New year to all WTF’ ers. We went to the Terrigal fireworks. There was a mishap with the barge and fireworks .a wave hit it and knock the fireworks over. Causing most to explode at once in the direction of crowd. No one was hurt badly . But Terrigal was cleared while the emergency made sure the technicians were ok .Eventful night.
It could have been nasty. My wife and I were watching from the balcony of our place overlooking Forresters Beach. We were enjoying the display and then all of a sudden there was nothing. Obviously all the action was happening below the headland. Glad no-one was hurt.

Pretty dumb move putting a barge packed with large scale fireworks into water the gets swell. I was surprised when I saw the Police boat towing the barge away from calm waters near the boat ramp towards where the flags normally are outside the surf club. I’m staying at Wamberal. Good times.

Good toss to lose IMO.

Hopefully Starc gets a bit of movement in the air and we trouble them early. Conservative decision from Root given the conditions would better suit their bowlers, hasn't recovered from his decision in Adelaide.

I take it there was a full days play cause happy's. gone missing...

Looking at the Cards looks like the Poms surrended meekly again and Uzi and Smudge have us mowing them down...
Wests Tigers don't need a Coach.. The playing group has taken over..

Smith is looking good again and his stats are amazing .... quickest man since Bradman in regards to innings to reach 6000 runs since Bradman

But it shows how scary good Bradman was ..... 37 innings less or almost a 1/3 less innings than the next best :o

Hope Ink and CB enjoyed the day

If some want to see what we can look forward to South Africa switch to Fox

India are 6-81 and the pitch is seaming all over the joint .......on Day 2

Yeah it was good.
The missus probably doesn't appreciate it....she found it odd to leave while no result unlike footy...asked me why doesn't everyone go on the last day when they all know who wins.
Gave me THE look when I tried to explain that one to her.

I didn't end up going unfortunately.

Yeah India are having a rough time, that's what happens when you play something like 12 home tests on their dustbowls though. I don't think we'll have a particularly fun time over there either but we'll handle it better IMO.

I had a surf Patrol to do in the morning but got out to the SCG at 2pm ..pretty much when the Aussies declared. Nathan Lyon's first couple of overs when the ball was only 5 overs old was something else. He had bounce and turn plus they were coming through pretty fast.
Hobbo, I've got to give it to the Balmy Army. It was over 40 and they were out there in the full sun going hard for a few hours straight at the end of the day.

Reckon that lost time could be crucial today , got this feeling the Poms might hang on today

other slow dead pitch. not much wear for the 5th day.
Cummins has bowled very well on a wicket that has given the bowlers much at all.
