This is why I love cricket. Some might say that the English team snatched defeat from the claws of victory, but all dues to the Australian cricket team for a remarkable performance in the last two days of this Test. Warne’s 4/49 in the second innings was freakishly good, and our batsmen demonstrated their versatility in chasing down the 168 run target in the 36 overs available, effectively turning the last day of a five day test into one day cricket. It’s been dramatic and it’s been fun.
Let me make this perfectly clear: I truly love this game.
