“In response to Tim’s feedback on Canberra yesterday: been dwelling right here for 20 years and take from a neighborhood, it’s unbelievable. World class galleries and museums, vibrant arts scene, unbelievable eating places and contemporary meals markets, excellent wine district, fantastic parks and gardens, nationwide parks and bush reserves all over the place, 5 universities with campuses, unbelievable native area to discover together with NSW south coast, Snowy Mountains and a myriad of different issues to do and see. What’s to not love! Solely issues missing are first-class cricket and an A-League soccer group. Oh, and now we have Australia’s greatest beer!”
Fairly certain the smaller breweries in most Australian cities would all have an honest declare to that final half, however the remainder is true sufficient. Additionally when Canberrans complain about “peak hour” site visitors for a five-minute delay it’s fairly humorous. Bloody chilly in winter although, and will be bloody sizzling in summer time. No escape on the good inland plains.
thirteenth over: Australia 46-2 (Perry 20, Mooney 20) Sciver to switch Brunt, however it doesn’t begin properly as she overpitches and will get smoked by way of cowl for 4. Perry’s most convincing shot of the morning. Finds some outswing however Perry reaches for it and guides 4 by way of the hole at gully. Catches as much as Mooney’s rating.

tenth over: Australia 31-2 (Perry 11, Mooney 14) Once more Perry flings a drive at Shrubsole and really almost edges behind once more. The batting machine is just not purring. Will get one other thick exterior edge previous gully for a few runs.
ninth over: Australia 29-2 (Perry 9, Mooney 14) A bit streaky and a bit managed from Perry, driving with the outswing of Brunt to divert the ball alongside the bottom previous gully for 4 runs. Then it ought to be a dot ball as Perry clips to midwicket however Kate Cross lets it by way of her palms for 3. We seen she left a half-eaten banana on the boundary at effective leg, so maybe there was some fruit-related slipperiness concerned.
eighth over: Australia 21-2 (Perry 2, Mooney 14) Almost out, Mooney, with a giant bottom-handed drive geared toward mid-on. Misses it and it almost takes the within edge to the keeper. Shrubsole follows up with a peach to Perry that almost takes the surface edge. Survival time.

It is going to be Perry and Mooney to renew, with Brunt bowling. Three slips, gully, level, cowl, mid-off, mid-on, lengthy leg.
Working my eye over Manuka Oval, all seems to be good right here. Loads of inexperienced nonetheless on the floor, and a few ragged patches at each ends of the strip. Is there sufficient there for the bowlers to drive sufficient errors? That’s the query. However not less than, in contrast to most pitches we’ve seen on this format, there’s a honest likelihood.
Right here’s my match report from yesterday’s play, which was nice whereas it lasted.
Good Canberra morning, nuffies. Right here we’re from the Australian capital as soon as once more, and the very first thing I must report back to you is that it isn’t raining. Not now, not less than. The forecast suggests showers might occur at any level through the day, although the radar isn’t displaying a lot at current. So who is aware of.
We misplaced two full classes yesterday to rain, proper at a really thrilling a part of the day, which has taken the air out of the sport. The paths to a win for both group from listed here are: one, an 18-wicket day by which England fall quick. Two, eight Australian wickets by maybe an hour after lunch, and England have time to chase.
Proper now the Aussies are 52 runs forward and two wickets down, and England will resume with rested bowlers and an virtually new ball. So who is aware of.
