Australia v Pakistan – SCG Test: Call for writers

The Test summer ends in Sydney, with Australia 2-0 Pakistan.

Pakistan incredibly almost snatching that epic run chase in Brisbane.
Australia incredibly winning by an innings after all the rain and after Pakistan made 9d/443 in their first innings in Melbourne.

After Sydney, the next Test cricket played by Australia will be in India: 23 February, Pune.


As is usual, this is a call for writers, observers of Test cricket, whether viewing from the SCG or not, to nominate a day and write about it.

Note: Citrus Bob, stalwart of Test cricket correspondence, will not be around after Day 1. It’s time to step up.

Hit for a towering 6 by Mike Gatting at the Banyule Cricket Club, December 2002, theatrically attempting to reproduce the SK Warne delivery. The ball is yet to land. @e_regnans

    What sort of poetry are you hoping for?

  2. E.regnans says:

    G’day Alex,
    Poetry, I reckon Alex, like Test cricket, has a beauty that some appreciate more than others.
    There must be some sweet spot that exists at the nexus of them both.

    Step right up, step right up.
