This time its Personal!

Wow, Ricky Ponting felt he had a point to prove and didn’t he do that! What a display. I didn’t get to see the performance but from everything I have heard he was focused and on his game.  

RICKY Ponting’s century at the Gabba won’t mask the facial scar incurred in the corresponding match at Lord’s last year. But it might just remove the last remnant of mental scarring from the 2005 Ashes defeat, muzzling the man who wounded him in London and, in the process, igniting Australia’s bid to reclaim the urn.

Lets hope he can continue this on today as if I remember correctly, in 2005 series each team had a habit of having its good days followed by a bad day somewhat. It would be great if the Aussies could continue on and bat England out of the game, while setting themselves up to bowl them out twice.


I followed the cricket on the CricInfo site and man that thing is the best. I found the site way before it became so big or popular but it is now a monster. I even download their desktop application which is pretty cool. It has news feeds of all their information as well as a way to add your own favorite RSS feeds (including this sites and the comments feed of this site (perfect for following what peoples Boony’s are saying).

They also had the following rap up of the days play with Ian Chappell. Very nice listen.

Have a great day 2, follow the Boony Sayings and GO AUSSIES.
