Today Mark Waugh and David Boon started rather cautiously,
adding only 2 runs in four overs. But soon they began playing
strokes. Both had some difficulties with Lewis, and in
one over Caddidk (sp?) bowled a slow ball which beat Waugh
completely. However the 50 partnership came soon. Waugh
played some delightful strokes and raced past Boon to bring the
100 partnership for the 3rd. wicket. At Lunch the visitors
were comfortably placed at 398/2. After lunch, England had
lapses in the field. (What a bad Patch!!!) Finally Waugh was
bowled at 99. He never scored a hundred against England.
English bowling lacked conviction.
Listened to BBC commenetary, and most thrilling time. It
felt like the old days are here all over again.
Some one said (on rsc) England did not win at Lords
against Australia since 1934. But today I heard that
Australia, actually, did not do too well at Lords
recently (meaning lost :-) Which is correct?
Singular integral equations, and phase-space local minima are my guests
