Jesus. Just carrying my road bike into the living room to set it up on my turbo and the chain clacked against the corner of the wall as I came through and it sounded just like someone's stumps getting obliterated by a Starc yorker and I jumped up startled :(

Bairstow swinging and missing twice in a row now, Johnny getting over-excited when there's like two overs left. Chill out you ginger.

3000 Text runs for him at 40.00. Nice work. Matt Prior's successor.

:bow: :bow: :bow: :bow:

One session cost 69,000 GBP
At Perth

Third Ashes Test mired in allegations of spot-fixing
December 14 2017
The build-up to the third Ashes Test was overshadowed by spot-fixing claims


The third Ashes Test has been mired in controversy as The Sun claimed that spot-fixers have targeted the Perth match and that they also offered to provide details regarding the rigged periods of play. The Sun reported that two Indian bookies offered to sell details of rigged periods of play and "asked for up to GBP 140,000 to "spot fix" markets such as the exact amount of runs scored in an over."

In a statement, Alex Marshall - ICC's general manager of anti corruption - said the initial assessment of the materials received from The Sun did not reveal any evidence of corruption. "We have now received all materials relating to The Sun investigation. We take the allegations extremely seriously and they will be investigated by the ICC Anti-Corruption Unit working with anti-corruption colleagues from Member countries," Chapman said

"From my initial assessment of the material, there is no evidence, either from The Sun or via our own intelligence, to suggest the current Test Match has been corrupted. At this stage of the investigation, there is no indication that any players in this Test have been in contact with the alleged fixers. The allegations are wide ranging and relate to various forms cricket in several countries, including T20 tournaments. We will look closely at all the information as part of our investigation."

According to the report, the bookies claimed to be working with a fixer in Australian cricket known as 'The Silent Man' who has worked with former and current international players, including 'a World Cup-winning all-rounder'. The bookies said they could get players to follow scripts - as to how many runs scored in a session or an innings, when a team will lose a wicket or what a team would do after winning the toss.

"I will give you work in Ashes Test. Session runs. Maybe day one, two, three. We have two session work, one session costs 60 lakh rupees (GBP 69,000), two sessions 120 lakh rupees (138,000)," the bookie claimed in the sting video, adding that such information would be a big help while placing bets. Later, confirming that the fix was in place, the bookie sought advance money and said information would be provided after the toss.

When asked about the reliability of the information and its provider, the bookies said he was a legitimate source. They also explained how the fix works - a corrupt cricketer would signal that the fix is on by making gestures like changing the gloves, removing a helmet or bowlers wearing long sleeves. Spotters in the crowd would notice the gesture and communicate it to the bookies, who would then place bets accordingly, having determined the outcome of the said fix beforehand.

According to The Sun, the bookies also claimed that they could carry out fixing activities in the Big Bash League and the Indian Premier League, and also recommended splurging money on a new Zimbabwe League which was under their influence.

Reacting to the claims of spot-fixing in the Ashes Test, Cricket Australia and the England and Wales Cricket Board reiterated the zero tolerance policy towards corruption and assured full cooperation to any investigation by the ICC Anti-Corruption Unit.

"Cricket Australia takes a zero-tolerance approach against anybody trying to bring the game into disrepute," a CA spokesman said. "Cricket Australia will co-operate fully with any ICC Anti-Corruption Unit investigation. Australian cricket has a long-standing, proactive approach to sports integrity management and Cricket Australia has a dedicated Anti-Corruption and Security Unit (ACSU) to prevent corruption within Australian domestic competitions, including the BBL.

"In addition to this, all players participating in CA sanctioned competitions, including the BBL, are required to complete an anti-corruption education session before they can compete. CA works closely with the ICC ACU on all international fixtures played in Australia. Players are able to report any suspicions they have on a confidential basis and in the past there has been a strong Australian player culture to do so."

An ECB spokesperson said: "ECB work closely with the ICC and their Anti-Corruption unit to protect the integrity of the international game . We are aware of these allegations and there is no suggestion that any of the England team is involved in any way."

Good day in the end. Wicket looks like being the winner here though. Cook is cooked now! Great player for us but not over the last 4 years. If Stoneman can learn to play short stuff like Johnny then we have real opener at last. Malan played beautifully, hope he can continue. We need 550. Very impressed with Hazlewood, wow he really has become the real deal. Did anyone think Starc’s action looked a bit odd when striving for pace late on? Nice to play at a proper cricket ground, make the most of it those lucky enough to be there! That weather looked sooo good. Alarm set.......

This wicket at the WACA is the old type, lots of pace and bounce where Lillee, McDermott, McGrath, Lee, Johnson, Harris even Rodney Hogg took bagfulls of wickets, not to mention the West Indies. All these bowlers would have been rubbing their hands with glee at this wicket. This looks different, because of the bowling. The pace is there, the bouncers carry over the keeper's head, but the lack of control in the Australian bowlers is reminiscent of touring sides getting excited and don't know how to bowl well. Starc and Hazlewood wasted both new balls, and as the commentators said the pace at the stumps is the weapon, which they started off doing but the start by England scoring 50 off 10 overs sent Australia into a defensive mode and the lines and length all changed, which is a credit to England as they put Australia off their game. As Langer Clarke et al said, it takes a lot longer to get the eye in at the WACA and that is when the good bowlers capitalize by aggressive accurate bowling. Australia bowled a lot of good bouncers but failed to follow them up with decent wicket-taking deliveries instead were more likely dispatched to the boundary. As for the dropped catches what do you expect when Haddin is the fielding coach, he was the master of fumbling. But in saying that England don't have the pace so they will be serving up lollipops that Warner and the rest will go to town on.

Taylor and Richardson commentating have said over and over that the WACA pitch has been slow for ten years or more and is nothing like the former pitch that had a distinct shine to it.

Reputations die hard because of poor recall by some of us.

IMO it suits Australia's chance of retaining the Ashes.

Starc should've had a wicket with his first ball on second new ball.
Aussie heads dropped after that dropped catch.

You are talking to an experienced punter mate a draw means they have to win both Melbourne and Sydney.

Very unlikely they need to win here.

Can't even win a toss.

England can still win this one depends on how the wicket stands up on the last two days.

Smith raced to fifty. Great to watch even for a Pom

Hazlewood was the pick of the bowlers. Consistency is still evading him but was with the pressure building spell s he bowled Vince and Stoneman. Haze has overtaken Cummins as the enforcer. Could have had him at least four times. Talk about heads dropping.. Poms must have been besides themselves when they wasted that 260+ knock of Baistow and Malan by losing 6-25.

This batting machine continues on his relentless way. Yet another half ton for Smith. The guy is a freak.

36/6 collapse or something. England fail to press on after winning a session or two yet again. Unable to maintain pole position for longer than a session or so against this Australian team in their own back yard.

Please for bairstow and Malan of course. Malan was a surprise.

Overton has had to leave the field of play with some kind of injury too, if England didn’t already have enough problems.

Typical dogged South African innings by Dawid Malan. He reminds me of Faf Du Plessis, a mirror image.

England cruising.
2-1 beckons.
And an invigorated England side will put up a solid performance at the SCG and the MCG to clinch the series 3-2.

Well done, Root & co.

Congrats in advance, Boycs.

Oh boy

What a confidence by Raja after trailing 2/0

but first thing first.SMITH VS ENGLAND 92 not out now, he will be key tomorrow, probably Overton not bowl in the remains of Test koz of injury

If Australia’s next 4/5 Marsh & Marsh,Paine,Cummins helps their captain they can still match up 403 easily here after 4 hours of play. 70 % possibility of draw test

only results possible,if England’s First 4 bats as bad as their last 6

otherwise I can not see England 2/1 here.

No way. What you think England might Restrict Australia in the first innings.?

Shame Australian cricket board still need helps from “HANDSCOMB - THE CATCHER “ to break big stand of 231 or so, poor Fielding by home team
