Australia’s Ashes Innings at Trent Bridge (Friday Funnies)

Election Analyst Antony Green from ABC (Australian Broadcasting Corporation) is a great number cruncher during the Australian state and Federal elections. I have watched him over the years on the TV screen during election nights with his predictions and prophecies calling the elections. I  also  recollect  that the young Green having a great crown of hair to slowly loosing it over the years.

This time Green has analysed a different set of numbers with the cricket score of Ashes 2015. As cricket lovers know that the Ashes series between Australia and the mother island England is a highly fought battle.

2015 series is not looking good for the Aussies at the old enemies’ turf.  The first day of the fourth test match started at Trent Bridge yesterday the 6th of August.   Day one of the five day match turned out to be disastrous for the Aussies. In their first innings Aussies were all out for embarrassing 60 runs in 18.3 overs in ninety four minutes.

Analyst Green has brilliantly converted the first innings timeline of disaster to a single tweet.(See below ).

Big Brother Vs Little Brother (Cricket World Cup Final 2015)

Tomorrow will be the finals between Australia and New Zealand, a trans-Tasman battle will be held at the Melbourne Cricket grounds (MCG).

Google has depicted the world cup today on their doodle. (see below)

aus vs Nz

When it comes to cricket, the  rivalry between the brothers is well known especially by the under arm delivery  that occurred  35 years ago (1981) at the  MCG .

Ex New Zealand  cricket captain Martin Crowe  has indicated that tomorrow’s match may be his last to watch since he is battling with cancer.

The four time champions Australia (1987,1999,2003, 2007) would like to win the cup in front of their home crowd, while  the  cup will be  the first time for the black caps. If the Kiwis win the cup it will be a big boost for the  island nation who has been battling with earthquakes for the last few years.

I vividly remember the  time when Sri Lanka won the cup for the first time in 1996 and the sweet memory lingers as if it happened just a few days ago. There is no doubt that   I will be barracking for the Kiwis for tomorrow.

Go Kiwi!! Win the cup for your nation!!
