Recurring Decimals…..

Everything here is irrelevant

What an ending…..

My last post was about the first day of the second Ashes test. Haven’t had time to write in between (will comment on that in another post) – but fittingly, I am coming out of hibernation to write about the last day of the last test – going on now. So much has happened since that second test, which England went on to win, followed by a draw and yet another win for England. This Ashes has lived up to all its pre-series expectations and hyperboles and even more. Sometime you wonder if someone actually scripted all this drama as an advertisement for Test cricket. And just when you thought that there could be no more twists and turns – with England, helped by the weather, seemingly in control of the last test (a draw will win them the Ashes 2-1), Shane Warne and Glenn McGrath, those two old war-horses, pick up a couple of wicket’s each on the last day morning, to leave the test in a tantalizing position. Can Australia get England our cheaply and chase down 200 odd runs in quick time ?
As the master of malaproprism said and has been subsequetly hackneyed by cricket commentators, ‘It ain’t over ’til it’s over’. Looking forward to an exciting two sessions.
