Shane Warne celebrates his 50th birthday by watching Steve Smith score a record 10th successive half century from England, but states the hosts are in the”box seat” in the fifth Ashes Test…
Now I drew up my half century. Fifty years old.
I remember starting my career, looking at men in the group who have been 29, 28 and believing’geez, they’re older’.
But I’m very happy, I’m healthy, and I been ignored with of the messages from people of support and love. So let you know it has been excellent, quite pleasant.
I received a gorgeous message from Nasser Hussain. He said, ‘Get stuffed! Happy Birthday!’ That’s practically a term of endearment in Nass. Drinks are on him tonight!
I’ve been lucky however. I adore the broadcasting since I have retired, and that is still going (touch wood). I’ve also got some company ventures that are currently doing well, my own poker is going OK and I’ve got three kids.
I am also looking forward to training at The Hundred following calendar year. I’m really happy with the way we’re moving at the moment.
I wasn’t the only one however, Steve Smith hitting a listing half century in a row against precisely the identical opposition to reach.
I can not recall an example of a batsman being dominant against a team – 751 runs in the series! England have had no answer for him.
Whatever strategies they’ve come up with, they either have not sustained them for long , couldn’t implement them well , or even Smith has been too great.
When I was England captain, then I think that the key is trying to convince him to strike through the covers – play away from his body.
You need to bowl full at him, not too wide but wide enough that he is currently looking to reach the ball through the offside. Then mix it up with the short chunk. That’s what I’d be doing.
I also don’t think there has been quite good balls to Smith when he has walked out to the middle.
England are appropriate from the game since this wicket will turn big moment especially after Chris Woakes finally got out Smith. It will be difficult to bat.
It’s why I was surprised that Australia won the toss and chose on a pitch that is fantastic , to bowl.
In 2-1 up in the series, they gave away a bit of an edge, and the gap between drawing the string 2-2 and winning 3-1 is enormous. There is still so much to play .
To possess the right back back and keep the Ashes is excellent, but it will be big for Australia to acquire the series . They have not done this since 2001.
We performed well in 2005, but England were just too good, and since then – that the 2009, 2013, 2015 tours – we have been just crushed by England.
I truly hope since I think that they deserve to Australia can go on to win the series. They played the best cricket have been the better side.
They will still believe they can. England are in the box seat, but as long as Smith is still in the crease, it’s very difficult to say Australia will not make a great deal of runs, they will need to place Australia a decent score as.
It is the exact same thing we’ve been saying each Test match; they have a chance when England can get him out.
