Shane Warne celebrates his 50th birthday watching Steve Smith score a record 10th successive half century against England, but claims that the hosts are in the”box seat” in the fifth Ashes Test…
Today I brought up my half century. Fifty years of age.
I recall starting my career, looking at men in the group who have been 28, 29 and believing’geez, they’re older’.
But I’m very happy, I’m healthy, and I been ignored by all of the messages from people of support and love. So let you know It’s been fantastic, really pleasant.
I received a beautiful message . He said, ‘Get stuffed! Happy Birthday!’ That is practically a term of endearment in Nass. Drinks are on him tonight!
I have been lucky. I really like the broadcasting since I have retired, and that is still moving (touch wood). Iand I ‘ve also got some company ventures that are doing really well and three great children, respectively.
Year I am also excited about training in The Hundred. I’m happy with the way things are moving in the moment.
I wasn’t the only one though, Steve Smith hitting a listing half a century that is 10th in a row against the identical opposition to reach fifty now.
I can’t remember an instance of a batsman being dominant against a group – 751 runs from the series! England have just had no answer for him.
Whatever plans they’ve come up with, they have not sustained them long , couldn’t execute them or even Smith has simply been too great.
If I was England captain, then I believe the key is attempting to convince him to strike through the covers – play out from his entire body.
You need to bowl full at himnot too wide but broad enough that he is looking to reach the ball. Mix up together with the short chunk that is odd, using a leg slip. That is what I would be doing.
I don’t think when he has walked out to the center, there’s been enough really good slower balls to Smith.
England are correct from the game, however, as this wicket is going to turn moment, particularly after Chris Woakes got outside Smith. It is going to be tough to bat last.
It’s the reason why I was quite surprised yesterday that Australia won the toss and decided to bowl.
At 2-1 up in the series, they gave away a little edge, and also the difference between drawing the series 2-2 and winning 3-1 is enormous. There is so much to play for.
Retain the Ashes and to have the urn back is excellent, but it will be enormous for Australia to win the series. They have not done that here since 2001.
We played well in 2005, but England were simply too good, and since after – the 2009, 2013, 2015 tours – England have crushed us.
I really hope since I believe that they deserve to Australia can go on to win the show. They played the best cricket have been the better side.
They will still think they could. England are now in the box seat, but as long as Smith remains at the crease, it is very hard to say Australia will not create a whole lot of runs they will need to set Australia a score as.
It’s the same thing they have a opportunity, if England could get him outside.
