Photographs of the Sydney Test match 2008

January 23, 2008

The slide-show below could only be possible because Vishal was kind enough to send me photographs of the Sydney Test where he was present. He has captured the atmosphere of the stadium pretty well. In addition, he has some close ups of the players! All in all the slide-show will give you a feel of what you missed by not being there…

If you move your mouse on to the picture it will stop sliding and you will be able to read the caption

    Lots of lovely pics Nita. Thanks to Vishal and to you. I don’t recognize all the new players though because I don’t watch cricket. So, it would be helpful to have their names. 🙂

    Thanks for sharing with everyone 🙂 This was the test match which had full drama, on the field and off the filed … and inspired the Indian team to win Perth test match . Steve Bucknor and other umpire made blunders and India eventually lost the match where it should have won the match by day 4. Australia was in trouble until he gave Symonds not out on some 3+ runs and eventully had a fight with Hasbhajan Singh.
    Anyway I hope yr readers enjoy this and will send you MCG 20/20 Match as its a huge ground and is known as Mecca of Cricket.

    Nice – I like this particular slideshow concept.

    One of the few test matches in the last few years that I could catch on TV (as I was in India). What a circus! Btw, it it just me or does Ponting looks a tad like George Bush? And he asks us to trust his integrity with that resemblance? LOL 🙂 !

    Ruhi, as I am not an avid follower of cricket, I could not get the names of all the players. Sorry!

    Rajesh, thanks for your response.

    Arunk, thanks.Ponting according to me looks far more wicked than George Bush!
