The One Day Cricket Series starts this afternoon in half an hours time at the MCG. I think it might be quite difficult to beat the Poms in this series.

Plus there is already a bit of scuttlebutt and criticism of the Aussie selectors for not including Glenn Maxwell in the side. Aussie coach Darren Lehman says that his omission is due to the fact, "He simply has not performed well enough for Australia in recent times to merit a place in the XI". Yeah, RIGHT.

At the end of their 50 Overs, Australia were 304 for 8. England got the wickets of the danger men, David Warner and Steve Smith very cheaply. The top scorer was Aaron Finch with 107. I believe the English bowlers controlled the scoring rate fairly. A run rate of 6 runs per over should not be difficult for the Poms to win this one.

And sure the Poms have started fairly well with 83 for 2 after 10 overs.

Just on 9.15pm here in Brisbane and England have just won the first ODI by 5 wickets, with 7 balls to spare. Very well done!

England displayed some superbly controlled batting with great running between the wickets. Joe Root was a main contributor. But particularly Jason Day who made the highest score by any  Englishman in One Day cricket.

Very enjoyable to watch but honestly the Poms never looked as though they would loose once they were batting.

I know England was the home of Shakespeare, Donne, and Browning; but I didn't think that made that much difference :-P

I think the additions to the English team for yesterday's ODI - bowlers David Wood and Adil Rashid for instance - gave a fascinating glimpse of how tough it could have been for Australia to win back the Ashes if these guys had been available, and the selectors a bit more discerning. Plus Jason Roy was very good at the necessary style for the one-day game, which style admittedly may not convert to the normal full five-day game Test match format. 

The next ODI is here in Brisbane at the Gabba, where the first test match of this series was played. And it will be a big test also for David Sandurski who has just signed his contract as the Brisbane cricket ground's new curator. January 19 will herald his first appearance as Gabba curator on the international stage.  :D

I am very much looking forward to the rest of this series. Good!

Australia batted first for the second ODI, and England controlled the scoring rate very well. Australia are 270 for 9 with the final wicket taken on the last ball of the 50th Over. Not that wickets matter a lot in this form of the game.

England should go on to win this one easily.

It was so obvious that the Australian reshuffled side were going to loose that I did not even bother to stay up until the bitter end. England's very good limited overs outfit is much better than Australia, who in my opinion, despite the reshuffle, have retained too many of the Test side, instead of grabbing some of the 'Big Bash' players who are presently playing to packed stadiums in our local league.

England won by 4 wickets scoring 274 for 6 in 44.2 overs in reply to Australia's 270 for 9 in the full 50 overs. So now the Poms are 2 up in the series and Australia will have to do something drastic to win this series.

The Tigers start Spring Training in about a month.  The Lions just finished a dismal season.

The Red Wings are active now along with the Pistons.

I'm glad to see the English still remember how to play Cricket ;-)
