Another day, another massacre of batsmen. 16 wickets fell on Day 2 of this second Test between England and Australia. But it was the 10 Australian poles that fell in not much more than a session that will be the sorry tale talked about today. We’ll have live scores from 8.00pm AEST.
My mother actually told me there would be days like these. Strange days indeed, when the English would defeat Australia in the tightest, most heartbreaking and (some may say) controversial of ways.
While taking a poorly timed bathroom break during the final session of this drama filled first ashes Test, I heard a yell from the lounge room.
It’s the men’s semi-finals tonight at Wimbledon, with the first being an intriguing, explosive and unexpected match-up between the attack of Juan Martin del Potro and the stoically brilliant defence of World No. 1 Novak Djokovic. Join The Roar for live scores and blog from 10.00pm AEST.
As a teenager I looked forward to two events each year more than anything else. One was Christmas and the other was Wimbledon.
With a name like Jackson Bird, there are so many word plays and analogies you could riff on. There’s ‘a Bird in the hand is worth two English wickets’ or ‘Jackson’s 5-for’, to name just a couple.
