    I’ll be there for the full 3 days plus after lunch on Day 4.
    Will you be in attendance so that we can be 2GOM discussing the future of test cricket?


  2. citrus bob utber says

    Just like to reiterate what I said in Adelaide:-
    “The Adelaide crowd will exceed that of the Boxing Day Test this year”
    Any takers?

  3. G’day CB,
    Love it.

    I’m a maybe for Day 2 at this stage. I’ll let you know.

  4. Mick Jeffrey says

    Day 1 definite, day 2 likely.

  5. With the rain settling in will the ACB’s worst dreams come true, with Boxing Day abandoned? It happened against the Poms in 70-71, then 98-99, and I was there in 93-94 when play against the Jarpies did not start until tea. A Boxing Day washout is the ultimate disaster in this current series.


  6. Turning the TV on for test cricket is like watching the Lotto draw. Rarely delivers the hoped for result. Bah humbug.
    Regards from Ebenezer in Perth.

  7. Thanks Citrus.
    Reliability is underrated.

    Thanks Mick.

    I’m sorting out a ticket as the morning showers tumble down here in Melbourne Town.
