Ashes Barometer 2010/11 Update

14 01 2010

Ominous signs from antipodean lands. Australia are currently 284-3 on the first day of their final test against Pakistan with both Ponting and Clarke cracking centuries. Previously this Summer the Australians had shown a curious lack of ability to go past 90 odd and Ponting in particular was entrenched in a run of poor form unlike anything he’d ever experienced. Sadly these great times to be a non Aussie cricket supporter have now passed and it appears all is back to normal in the land down under.

As an English cricket fan only just beginning to get used to the idea that Australia are beatable again, this scoreboard sends nasty shock waves through me and immediately sets any hope of an away Ashes win down a notch or two from the all time high it had achieved post Ashes.
