Shipment information sent to FedEx







So in essense, from the time it was picked up by FedEx, it's been bouncing between England and France.

FWIW, it wasn't a yoyo that I ordered ... smile.gif


Once I ordered something from Germany. It went to few cities in Germany then 2 cities in France (including Paris). Then it went to Bangkok then to Sydney. It was with UPS Express. It took 4 days total.

Doesn't matter - you don't need to buy thing to use them immediately. I just bought a couple of very thin cardigans at a good price which I'll be using next winter onwards as layering pieces. These are building blocks that will serve you well for years to come and will only get better with age.

Dale Steyn is back into the attack. I give Ponting another four deliveries before he loses his off stump..

And of course, GST in the supply chain is covered by the GST paid at the next step, and only the end user really ends up paying it.

correct however the lower the base value, the less the end user needs to pay which is what Id like to achieve i.e. good stuff at lower prices.

Close! Peterson struck! Such a pity Punter could not get more runs. End of an era....

Yeah, not close, though. Peterson and Steyn are hardly alike. Steyn is such a quality bowler. Would've been better if it was b Steyn c Kallis - two deserving players to get out Ricky Thomas. Oh well.

I've never enjoyed watching Ponting bat, to be honest. He was too inelegant and brash for my liking, both in stroke play and his demeanour, but there's no denying his credentials as one of the world's all time great batsman, and the statistics are proof of his ruthless ability to score.
post #22569 of 57911
Geez, I really liked watching Punter bat.

Should have chucked it in at the end of last season, but what a phenomenal talent. Incredible technique and eye.

The fact Peterson is a left arm orthodox spinner opposed to the right handed Steyn speedster, the bowlers are obviously worlds apart. However you were close to point out Ricky's imminent dismissal. Ponting may not have been as elegant as say a Mark Waugh or a Damien Martyn, the fact he plundered and conquered Test and One day cricket with his trademark aggresive driving, pivoted pullshots and piling on the big runs with a test average in excess of 52, he is a legend of the game.

 

I will drink a James Boag tonight in honour of his hometown.

Are Oroton Wallets good quality?

post #22571 of 57911
this batting performance is completely shambolic.
post #22572 of 57911
Oh without any shadow of a doubt, Ricky Thomas is an absolute legend with the bat. This is just one man's opinion that watching him bat doesn't excite me in the same way as a Damien Martyn, Hashim Amla or Mark Waugh. And, like many cricket fans, I think watching SR Tendulkar bat is the best ever. Anyway, Ricky is a legend with the bat. Shame to see him get out under such circumstances, but am glad he's retiring and not being pushed out by selectors.

The little master is an immortal, however even he found it hard to crack his 100th tonne on the last Indian tour here. Not forgetting, the flashy left handed BC Lara, who in my humble opinion is one of the all time greats. I think we will be hearing the name Amla for a long time yet.

post #22574 of 57911
Lara is legendary. And very good at poaching blonde-haired Aussie women. In fact, most of the West Indian players are good with the ladies when they're in town...

Amla, man, so good to watch. Quality player. Deserved a double ton the other day.

What do you all see happening from here in this test match?

You really believe that? After refusing to bow to the inevitable for the best part of the year, Ricky suddenly had the scales fall from his eyes after a second Test flop, when one Test flop did not convince him. No way; there was def a tap on the shoulder there.

The guy should have bowed out and the end of the India tour last summer, covered with glory. But he's never had the class to recognise his own failings, and they were many. Like Matthew Hayden before him, Ricky was allowed to embarrass himself in public for far too long.
