Shane Warne celebrates 50th birthday as Steve Smith notches another half century

Shane Warne celebrates his 50th birthday by watching Steve Smith rating a record 10th consecutive half century against England, but claims that the hosts are at the”box seat” at the fifth Ashes Test…
Now I brought my half century up. Fifty years old.
I recall starting my career, appearing at men in the team who have been 29 28 and believing’geez, they are old’.
But I am happy, I’m healthy, and I have been ignored with the messages from individuals of love and support. So let you know it has been quite pleasant.
I got a gorgeous message from Nasser Hussain. He said, ‘Get stuffed! Happy Birthday!’ That is practically a term of endearment from Nass. Drinks are on him tonight!
I’ve been quite lucky. I really like the broadcasting ever since I have retired, and that’s still going (touch wood). Iand I ‘ve also got some business ventures which are currently doing really well and three kids, respectively.
I’m also really excited about coaching in The Hundred. I am very happy with the way we’re going at the minute.
I wasn’t the only one to reach however, Steve Smith hitting a 10th half a century in a row against precisely the exact identical opposition.
I can not remember an example of a batsman being dominant against a team – 751 runs from the sequence! England have simply had no answer for him.
Whatever plans they have come up with, they either have not sustained them for long , couldn’t implement them or even Smith has only been too great.
If I was England captain, then I believe that the key is currently trying to get him to hit the covers – drama out from his body.
You have to bowl complete at himnot too broad but enough that he is seeking to reach the ball through the offside. Mix up with the strange short ball. That is what I would do.
I don’t believe when he has walked to the middle, there has been enough quite good slower balls to Smith.
England are right from the game since this wicket will turn big time especially after Chris Woakes eventually got out Smith. It will be hard to bat continue.
It’s why I was quite surprised yesterday that Australia won the toss and chose on a fantastic pitch , to bowl.
At 2-1 up in the show, they gave away a bit of an edge, and the difference between drawing on the string 2-2 and winning 3-1 is massive. There’s still so much to play .
Retain the Ashes and to have the right back back is great, but it will be big for Australia to acquire the series outright. They haven’t done that here since 2001.
We played well in 2005, but England were too good, and since after – the 2009, 2013, 2015 tours – us have crushed.
I hope Australia will go on to win the series, since I believe that they deserve to. They played the better cricket and have been the side.
They will still think they can. England are in the box seat, but so long as Smith is still at the crease, it is very tough to say Australia won’t make a great deal of runs they will need to put Australia a good score too.
It’s the identical thing we’ve been saying every Test match; they’ve a chance when England could get him outside.
