Interesting question. I'm assuming there hasn't been any coverage of the Ashes in the US, what with world championships being decided in sports no else plays and all, so it's a legitimate enquiry.
Australia, as usual, took the fight to the host country and made England play way above themselves...
Did you yell at people to get off the grass too? :p
It's pretty isolated up there, but that part I'm used to. It's the winters and frequent dodgy summers that would probably break it for me. A cottage outside Amsterdam would be pretty sweet if I made the move one day. I think I'll be saving for...
Inverness is definitely worth making the trip north for :) It's really only the beginning of the highlands too, so we want to trek even further into the wilderness next time. And with a supply of Talisker, we might disappear off the radar altogether :p
Match 1 was abandoned due to heavy rain.

Glad you guys enjoyed the read :) I keep reliving the trip over and over, so I feel the need to tell anyone who will listen and there aren't enough superlatives to describe it.
I was nervous about the weather trying to ruin our plans, but overall it was kind to us considering the stories I've...
This time next week I'll be making the long journey back home to Australia after spending 2 months in Amsterdam where my girlfriend lives. This is my second visit here, but on the first two years ago, we never made it out of The Netherlands. We decided to take better advantage of the...

I'm 0/2 when posting line-ups, so better not leave it up to me. I guess we go with pretty much the same team and pitch conditions that gave us the victory last time.
1. Ahmad Shah
2. Manly :c:
3. Ernie Els
4. BlitzBerg Steel :wk:
5. Bilal Butt
7. Loco Salihamidzic ^
8. Aalay ^
There was an error in Mark's table with Aalay not being credited for a round. I double checked Aalay's posts through his profile and can confirm he posted twice in every round for the +4 bonus.
For Ahmad's possible carry-over bonus I was counting the round 5 game from this earlier table. If it...
Our bonuses should look a little like this:
Aalay +4 bowling (unless he states different)
Blitzberg +3 batting
Mark Crum +4 batting
Sedition +4 bowling
Ahmad Shah has covered 3 games from the second half of the season and 1 game leftover from the first half. If that game carries over then +1...
