In www.ashespoetry.net for today's play I wrote
"Near us a group go too far. Instead of a ball, they have a ball with an inflatable woman. For some reason this is also against the rules, even though Cricket Australia publicised this series with a thirty foot high Giant Warnie they pumped up and took to England just in case anyone in Australia didn’t happen to know the Ashes were back. ....The police move in. They arrest the inflatable woman who by all accounts refused to give her name, address or any other details and kept her integrity intact under intense scrutiny till one prick too many. She may well return tomorrow disguised as a blow-up policeman."
What do you think? Are inflatable women not cricket or don't they have the rights as you or I to watch so long as they behave themselves reasonably?
Day Three Stumps 84 for 2 - still in with a chance in the dog-house
actually 181 for 1 but 84 for 2 would've have been slow yet not too bad had England followed on
