The Ashes 2; Day Three

Though Cook gave a tickle behind
And Harris’s bouncers seemed mined
To say friendly bowling
And mention pea rolling
Is not really over unkind

With Pietersen’s batting on fire
While Bell’s reputation grows higher
It’s only the weather
Keeps Ponting together
A monsoon’s his greatest desire

Author notes

I’ve watched The Ashes with England losing badly, and I’ve watched when England are winning, it’s much more fun when we’re winning!!!
