Re: Bored Help - Pensions - non-Aussies living in Aus

Greg: I still lurk occasionally and I saw this thread. I know a bit about this subject, having done it myself (though things have changed a lot over the last couple of years).

Fair enough L Ron, but your boys bowled amazingly well. Honestly I'd say most batting line ups would've struggled to prosper against what Aussie served up today. Definitively don't want to disservice the bowlers. They were brilliant. But the tone really was set by McCullum. Aggressive starts are gr...
