Hey Kev, we may hope Phelps (or Josh) doesn't see this or he'll be making fun of our favourite one-hit wonderswink

Yes I have the CD/DVD set of the unplugged concert. It's pretty decent, though I haven't returned to it as often as I would if it were a new album. Some songs work better than others, but it sounds very good and nicely executed. The performance is pretty good to watch on the DVD. Also features Alison Moyet and Ian McCulloch, and a couple of Norwegian acts.

It is indeed the Blackpool gig I'm going to, just picked that one as it's probably the easiest for me to get to. Should be good at the football ground, something new for a-ha in the UK anyway to be playing stadium gigs. They're pretty good live and always do a set with the songs most folk know, so I think you'd enjoy it. Should also be a good night with OMD and Tom Bailey as the support.

However I doubt they will play 'Waiting For Her', don't think I've ever heard that one live and I remember you like it!


Holy flip, I love OMD and heard they are good live! I'd watch em if I could.

Thanks Thomas.
Sounds good. Looks like I'll have to convince the missus she wants to see a-ha live smile

The Second Test starts in Adelaide 3:30am UK time and it's a day/night Test, so uses the pink ball.

Australia are unchanged, England still umming and ahhing.

England need a result.

Conditions should suit some swing. Dull and overcast for the weekend after a sweltering week apparently. England need to make the most of it. Cook needs a score.

Also, Ireland had a comfortable win over Scotland in the ICC tournament.

Cook was a disaster waiting to happen. In the 2013/14 Ashes, Ryan Harris had him on toast. Now look who's the bowling coach for Australia...

I predict another poor series for him.

Question is, do you bat or bowl first if you win the toss in a day/nighter? Not so clear cut.

Root won the toss and put the Aussies in to bat. Poor bowling and they are 138-2.

Meanwhile over in NZ, WI collapsed to 134 all out (including a duck for Shai Hope). Neil Wagner took 39-7. NZ are piling up the runs with 447/9, with all rounder Colin de Grandhomme getting 105 of them.

And over in India, the home team are also piling on the runs. Vijay has a century and Kohli is 95 not out. How England could do with a top order like that.

Great wicket to get on your debut. Smith bowled! Well done Overton!

Close of play. Aus 209/4. Definitely their day.

Very much so. Think Root putting them in would have hoped to get further down their order. They will plan to bat most of the day tomorrow.

Aussies declare on 442 after a late order thrash. Cook looks a bit rabbit in headlights, and all the English batters can look forward to a shoulder high peppering. I only hope we remember it’s a test and not a 20/20.

Root is going down in Nasser Hussain infamy. What a disastrous call.

29/1, rain stopped play. Doesn’t look good, lots of ball passing bat, three LBW appeals, one successful, and several runs scored because the ball went somewhere quite other from where the batter intended. I’m not sure batting first would have made much difference. The extra Aussie firepower will give them the series.

The only surprise is that Cook is still at the crease.

For the benefit of our USA cousins here is a brief explanation of cricket I came across some years ago. Simple game, really.

You have two sides, one out in the field and one in. Each man that's in the side that's in goes out, and when he's out he comes in and the next man goes in until he's out. When they are all out, the side that's out comes in and the side thats been in goes out and tries to get those coming in, out. Sometimes you get men still in and not out.

When a man goes out to go in, the men who are out try to get him out, and when he is out he goes in and the next man in goes out and goes in. There are two men called umpires who stay all out all the time and they decide when the men who are in are out. When both sides have been in and all the men have been out, and both sides have been out twice after all the men have been in, including those who are not out, that is the end of the game!

England's bowling attack is coming up a bit short. It's a pity they can't call upon a Simon Jones or Flintoff to mix things up a bit. There just doesn't appear to be enough aggression in their play for me. All too nice. They may hope Root doesn't come to the crease too early tomorrow with that ball still relatively new.

Also, smog stops play in Delhi...confused

They keep bowling too short as well.

Kohli gets ANOTHER double century and his highest score to boot.

NZ went big, declaring at 520/9. Only centurions were their numbers 7 and 8 (Tom Blundell on his debut). WI fighting back hard though with 214/2 in the second innings.

who knew this bastard cricket thread would be the new "go to place to hang out" ??! smile

i love this - brofax writes the funniest post in the whole bloody thread....and u lot just carry on talking about poxy england's batting and bowling ! its the equivalent of star wars fanboys ignoring a mild jibe about their favourite children's space adventure.

in the words of Jack: " You cant handle the truth!" wink

I woke up this morning to exactly the sort of score I was expecting. 227 all out. Our top scorer was bowling debutant Craig Overton with 41. England are just carrying on from where they left off in 2014. Sigh.

Elsewhere, NZ have beaten WI by an innings and 67 runs. WI were well placed at 231/2 but lost their last eight wickets for 88 runs.

Sri Lanka are fighting back against India. 285/4. Centuries for Angelo Mathews and Dinesh Chandimal, who is 101 not out.
