Petulant Ponting Punting on Win

Who said test cricket is boring? Cliches abounded as the fourth test went down to the wire. The Aussies just never say die, unlike certain centre right Kiwi political commentators. Fancy losing seven wickets for such a paltry total and then stealing the win back from the oesophagus of truly ignominius defeat. The Poms must have no fingernails left. Ponting did himself no favours with his little onfield display of petulance.

One would have to say the chances of australia holding the Ashes are slim. Its is looking like Sack Cloth and NoAshes for the Ockers. T'will not be a triumphant and happy home coming for the heroes.

I hope we are to see no repeat of Kim Hughes' tears on telly.
