Aussies lack a legend

AUSTRALIA need a Keith Miller, or a Ray Lindwall (pictured) or any other legendary player who can single-handedly rescue their ASHES campaign from the jaws of almost certain defeat.
We ate a salmon dinner last night while listening to ENGLAND (513) close in on retaining the Ashes for the first time in 24 years, as the visitors once again dominated the hosts (98 & 169-6) at the MELBOURNE CRICKET GROUND.

If you're just tuning in, the Ashes refers to:

1. The ancient cricket rivalry between England and Australia.

2. A small urn-like perfume bottle from the 1800s that has come to symbolize the rivalry.

My sister INGER and I saw the urn under glass about a year ago, while touring the spiritual home of the game, Lord's Cricket Ground in London.

Last night, we listened online to Jim Maxwell and the other ABC GRANDSTAND commentators describe events.

England were bowled out to end their first innings, but not before Jonathan Trott scored an unbeaten 168 runs. Later, Australian batsmen had reached 99-1 in reply before Tim Bresnan took three wickets for only five runs scored against.

I sympathize with the Aussies, having visited Sydney in August.

They lack the superstars of old. They lack an all-rounder such as Miller or a fast bowler of such intimidating power as Lindwall. Without such a force, their Ashes campaign effectively ends tonight.
