1st December - From out of the Ashes
We did it! The tickets weren't fake, we weren't conned and we made it in! We got up early and went to the Adelaide Oval earlish after a bit of hassle with the buses but we made it in.
The seats were fantastic, in the shade for the first half of the day and just past the midday sun. We were on the East side on either the midwicket or point area for right handers. We got a few freebies here and there for the match but they had 'Aussie' written all over them so we shall just give them away I feel.
We watched a slow start to the day with Strauss and Cook getting a slow but steady start to the day, both not getting too many but a solid start. Then was a touch boring as Bell and Collingwood both got slow 50s each, a great turn around and a solid partnership for England, not much to watch for us though. But as with Sarah's jinxing wishes she got to see Pietersen bat. He caught up to Collingwood pretty well and we got to see him smash Warney over his head for 6.
A totally unexpected day, but one of the greatest! Many thanks to those guys who sold us the tickets at face value too!
We finished the day with Pietersen on 60 and Collingwood on 98 not out. Fun for tomorrow as well.
Straight to sleep for us, with another amazing thing ticked off of the to-do list.
P.S. One for the cricket boys at work
