Common guys - This is an UK site and no discussion so far on cricket. That with Ashes round the corner. Anyways - busy watching Sachin build up his lead of centuries over Ponting. Go Sachin go.

Well to be fair, English international cricket can be a bit hit & miss :)

That being said though, we do have a damn fine limited overs squad right now (T20 World Champs & a ODI series win over Australia) which has been our traditional weakness.

Doing the business now in the test series against an admittedly tired Pakistan team. Still, a convincing whitewash will breed confidence for the winter Ashes tests.

I've tried a couple times, but I can't understand cricket to save my life. Is baseball this hard for you guys to understand? haha

As a game, no. Some of the statistics are a bit of a nightmare though.

Well he called time on his test career last year to focus on the limited overs game but now Freddie Flintoff has retired from cricket completely.

BBC Sport wrote:
Andrew Flintoff has announced his retirement from all forms of cricket "with disappointment and sadness". The injury-plagued all-rounder, 32, revealed the decision came after consultation with medical advisers.

He said: "Having been told my body would no longer stand up to the rigours of cricket, I had no alternative."

Lancashire star Flintoff played a key role in England's Ashes successes of 2005 and 2009 but had been dogged by ankle and knee problems in his career.

He added in a statement: "I was told the problems I have been trying to overcome in rehab for the last year, following the latest of a series of operations, would not recover sufficiently to allow a comeback. I would like to thank my family, Lancashire, England, all my sponsors, friends and advisers for all the help and support they have given me throughout my career.

"Last, but by no means least, I am indebted to the encouragement and support I have always received from England's magnificent supporters. I will now be taking a break before deciding which future direction to take."

Don't worry about the ashes guys .Ponting's team will be mangled so badly in India that they will be in no condition to take on the Poms afterwards.
