    listen

    inside that urn are the cremated remains of the bail taken as england were dismissed on home soil for the first time ever by australians. it dates back to 1882. those ashes are far more important than the shimmering trophies and hollow plaques of other sports

    also they get some kind of oversized replica carved in solid diamond. i'm pretty sure it's solid diamond

    what is a bail and how was it taken

    Eh.

    Whoever one the toss was going to win it. Shane Warne said it best when he said it was a ground that would force a result.

    also I just realized you said you thought the replica urn was solid diamond. cricket doesn't generate that much revenue, dummy.

    It's glass. Waterford crystal, to be exact.

    No. But why we are ahead of you in every other category by which you measure how awesome a country is.

    Also, we don't have scorpions. Or snakes. But we do have waffles. Suck it down Oz.

    There are only two categories. Number of spiders, lowest being best naturally, and Britishness.

    A summer afternoon BBQ is not complete without cricket playing on the TV in the background.

    You can have the best steak, the coldest beer and the hottest summer sun, but if there is no cricket playing from the TV, then you are doing it wrong.

    Listen to this man. He has the right idea.

    You dont even need to watch the TV. You just have to hear polite applause and some soft commentary every few minutes.

    There are only two categories. Number of spiders, lowest being best naturally, and Britishness.

    Britishness is a complex system that is measured by whinning, the ability to drink shitty warm beer and being able to turn bright red by looking at a bright light and then calling it a tan.
