Shane Warne celebrates his 50th birthday watching Steve Smith rating a record 10th successive half century against England, but states the hosts are at the”box seat” in the fifth Ashes Test…
Now I brought up my half century. Fifty years old.
I recall first beginning my career, looking at men in the group which were 29 28 and believing’geez, they are old’.
But I’m very happy, I’m healthy, and I’ve seriously been dismissed by all the messages from individuals of support and love. So thank you, it has been excellent, very nice.
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’ve been lucky. I love the broadcasting since I’ve retired, and that’s still going (touch wood). I’ve also got some company ventures which are doing well, my own poker is likely OK and I’ve got three kids.
Next 13, I am also looking forward to coaching at The Hundred. I’m really happy with the way things are going in the minute.
I was not the only one though, Steve Smith hitting a record 10th half a century to reach.
I can not recall an instance of a batsman being so dominant against a group – 751 runs from the sequence! England have had no response for him.
Whatever strategies they have come up with, they have not sustained them for long , could not execute them well , or Smith has been too good.
When I was England captain, then I think the key is trying to convince him to hit through the covers – drama out from his entire body.
You have to bowl complete at himnot too wide but enough that he is looking to reach the ball. Mix up together with the odd chunk that is short, using a leg slide. That’s what I’d be doing.
I don’t think if he has walked out to the center, there’s been enough quite good balls to Smith.
England are correct in the game, however, particularly after Chris Woakes got Smith outside, as this wicket is going to turn big time. It will be hard to bat.
It’s why I was quite surprised that Australia won the toss and decided on a pitch that is fantastic.
Only at 2-1 up in the show, they gave off a little edge, and also the difference between drawing the series 2-2 and winning 3-1 is enormous. There is still much to play .
Keep the Ashes and to possess the urn back is fantastic, but it would be tremendous for Australia to win the series outright. They haven’t done this since 2001.
We performed in 2005, but England were too great, and since then – that the 2009, 2013 – England have crushed us.
I truly hope because I believe they deserve to Australia will go on to win the series. They have been the side played the best cricket.
They will still believe they can. England are in the box seat, but as long as Smith is still at the crease, it is very tough to say Australia won’t create a whole lot of runs they need to put Australia a decent score as.
It’s the same thing when England can get him out, they have a opportunity.
