Steve Waugh speaks, Australia stops and listens.

So we're trying to sell cricket to the Americans by means of an Australia versus England "Ashes" exhibition match in Los Angeles.

And while Daniel Radcliffe, Robbie Williams and Jude Law didn't turn up to play for England as they'd agreed to, England defeated Australia.

Steve Waugh was leading the Aussie team that included Mike Whitney, surfing champion Layne Beachley and everyone's favourite Daddo, Cameron.

This is from ninemsn

Waugh - playing his first game of cricket since retiring in 2004, scored 40 runs off 26 balls, including one six that nearly wiped out [Mel] Gibson in the VIP tent - did not seem too upset about the loss until a reporter asked him when was the last time he lost to England.

He thought for a few seconds.

"That's a good question," Waugh pondered.

"Quite a while.

"It's going to hurt tonight now I think about it.

"Thanks mate."

Classic.

Wunderbar!

Welcome to the cricket blogging world, Miss Field..

A pleasure to have you here, and it will be nice to see "The Ladies" perspective. (As they say in polite society)

N.B. I'm still waiting for my invite to polite society, but the postman never comes.

Also, I've added you to my feedreader, so hope to see more from you in the near future.

This guy certainly has sense of humor! This answer will make reporters think before speaking)) Frankly, some of them would be better as writers for best college paper writing service reviews than correspondents.
