The Ashes In Photos: Ricky Ponting Is Our Favourite Whinging Aussie
THE Ashes: Anorak would just to thank Ricky Ponting for moaning – nay, whingeing – at umpire Aleem Dar after unsuccessfully reviewing the decision for the wicket of Kevin Pietersen. The fourth test at Melbourne Cricket Ground in Melbourne, Australia, has been a late highlight of the year. Other highlights can be found in the comments section of Tim Blair’s blog. They care – they really, really care:
“He’s among four English batsmen currently enjoying series averages above 50.”
Except he, Trott is another one of those dastardly Africans in the hybrid “English” team. Four out of eleven?????
Again, we mustn’t forget, this is the world’s 5th worst team being beaten by the world’s 4th worst team. Hell, even New Zealand is ranked higher than both of them…..

No whinging from the tourists about doctored pitches any more, then?

That they care so much makes winning a minority sport so very worthwhile…
