Saint, you guys are so close, and yet so far from winning this match! Pietersen is on a roll!

Whoo hoo!

In your face Ozzies :lol:

(Doesn't really make up for the lack lustre performance of the football team though :( )


by the by is it still the case that if they win the ashes we don't let them take it out of the country & they get a replica?

Ashes Stay At Lords
(To the tune of "Three Lions")

They talk about Ashes flown to Oz,
They stay at home of course,
They're all daft, they don't know
That in England we invented the game,
Through the struggle & pain, and the wind and the rain
The urns not leaving.
Three Lions on our shirts
The Ashes urns still gleaming
Locked away at Lord’s
And Ricky Ponting screaming
They stay at Lord’s , They stay at Lord’s, They stay at
Ashes stay at Lord’s
They stay at Lord’s , They stay at Lord’s, They stay at.
Ashes stay at Lord’s.

They've definitely put that group of over paid prima donas who call themselves the England football team to shame!
