Victoria vs SA at MCG

This game begins at the G tomorrow.

Play starts at 11am

Normally spectators would be able to use a valid metcard to get in for free but this will not be the case tomorrow as Public Transport is free in Victoria tomorrow.

My advice would still be to buy a metcard tomorrow - the cheapest sort such as a 2hr - and use it for entry. It'll be cheaper than paying the entry fee at the gate.

I was going to post about the Outright win, after I snuck in to see the last 5 or 6 overs of the game. McGain must go to South Africa. Even with his limited cricket recently, he is still by far the best option Australia has.

A couple of good ins for the squad today for the one-dayer at the G. Cameron White and Peter Siddle both back into the squad.

Time to recognise Bill Lawry.
Bill has been a top class batsman for Australia and Victoria in the past and of course a broadcaster for many years.
The point I wish to make is that he is a Victorian and always fully supports the MCG and its great crowds as well as Melbourne weather much to the disgust of one Tony Greg who is on the NSW bandwagon when he can ,as is now totaly NSW Ian Chappel. But with Richie who shows a bit of goodwill for us Vics and the G. still NSW and poor Bill cops it all the time and has done so for many years on his own.
The other day they were talking of the hot weather in Adelaide and Greggy couldn't hardly say Melbourne was also hot he stumbled with his mouth. Bill always says great crowd at all grounds and supports the Vics alone on that panel sometimes he receives a little help but mostly outnumbered and always the butt of a joke.
I just wonder what support Victoria will have when Bill does retire.

Bit of a disappointing game though, those early wickets cost South Australia dearly.

Who is going to the game on Wednesday?

I had planned on going on Wednesday next week, but will have to set the recorder to watch the game instead.
