The visitors chased in the second match and couldn’t get there, despite good innings from James Vince and Sam Billings. Mitchell Starc was back on song, taking four wickets as did Adam Zampa. England will choose to chase again though, on what historically would be a good batting track at the G, but in the last two or three years has been a lively bowling surface. Matt Page the head curator has done wonders here. Interested to see what he serves up for a one-dayer.

Here we go for one more time. The third instalment in… well, is it fair to say the least popular ODI series ever? There have been series between smaller teams with fewer people in attendance and smaller television audience, but there’s a difference between being ignored and having active antipathy towards matches actually existing.

That’s not for everybody, of course: plenty of the players in these matches have a point to make and the opportunity to do so. Not everybody is comfortably ensconced in the England squad with multiple World Cup medals. Nor do the Australians know exactly how they want to structure their team ahead of next year’s Cup, without a whole lot of runway left.

Anyway, it’s cricket, we like it, I’m watching it, you’re reading about it, so perhaps we should just enjoy it?

Key events

3rd over: Australia 15-0 (Headed 10, Warner 3) Canceled the exam! Luck turns for Head. Woakes nails it in line with the stumps and Pistol Reiffel pulls the trigger, but Head was on tiptoe and worried about the height. In the end, the review shows that he throws a millimeter outside the leg stump, so ball tracking doesn’t even come into play. Warner shows him how to play a leave after that, then anything but a halfway hold, landing just wide and short. Which is also a description of the drummer.

2nd over: Australia 12-0 (Headed 9, Warner 1) Head: fallen! And England is dropping heads. Willey the bowler this time, from the Members End. Another flash from Head, another edge, this one thin enough to hit the second slide, but over his head. Dawson at that spot, flips it over the bar and goes for four points.

1st over: Australia 5-0 (Headed 4, Warner 1) We leave. Two slides and a point back for Travis Head. Do you think that prevents him from throwing his hands on a line outside the stump? Don’t be silly. The edge flies well to the deep third and is saved well by Curran sliding through. Warner adds a single, three-point head clip to the leg. Chris Woakes adds another good to his good last game.

The rain is gone, the blankets too, and the players come out in the middle.

In fact, if you’re wondering how important this streak is to some players, I had a long chat with Sam Billings about it just yesterday on the very court we’re sitting on. Pardon the pragmatism, but this seems relevant.

There is a video version or the audio interview is part of a podcast here.

A little more drizzle on the ground, so the burlap starts again. It should pass quickly, the sky is clear. The ground announcer is always very excited announcing all the players. “Number 33, Mah-nus Lllllllaba-shane!”

England win the toss and bowl

The visitors continued in Game 2 and couldn’t make it, despite strong innings from James Vince and Sam Billings. Mitchell Starc was back on the song, taking four wickets, as did Adam Zampa. England will choose to chase again, on what would historically be a good batting lane at the G, but for the last two or three years there has been a busy bowling surface. Matt Page, the head curator, has done wonders here. Interested to see what it serves for a day.

As for the excitement, this is the third game in a decided series, it was raining until a few minutes ago, and I can tell you from having recently entered the field that there is Not a torrent of eager Melburnians flocking to this game. So far, the bowl of seats looks pretty much like a healthy Sheffield Shield crowd.

It’s gone for once more. The third installment of… well, is it fair to say the least popular ODI series of all time? There have been streaks between smaller teams with fewer people in attendance and smaller TV viewership, but there’s a difference between being ignored and having an active antipathy towards games that actually exist.

It’s not for everyone, of course: many players in these matches have a point to make and the opportunity to make it. Not everyone is comfortably settled in the England squad with multiple World Cup medals. The Aussies are also unsure exactly how they want to structure their squad ahead of next year’s Cup, without much of a lead.

Anyway, it’s cricket, we love it, I watch it, you read about it, so maybe we should just enjoy it?
