The fourth Test was ridiculous. But exactly how ridiculous?

And which team was the more ridiculous of the two?

Find out here, in the latest edition of Liebke and Bowden’s Ridiculous Ashes.

Just some of the things you will find:

  • Time travel
  • Channel Nine
  • Tony Soprano
  • The blanketing of vans
  • Cricket


Mike Gatting wasn't receiving the King Cricket email when he dropped that ludicrously easy chance against India in 1993.


Why risk it when it's so easy to sign up?


  1. Dan actually means the non-Abelian group — and he means multiplication not addition. You see, in these theories the operation of multiplication is not commutative: a*b is not the same as b*a.

    I might have missed Dan’s point though which was something about Steve Waugh or someone.

    Also, the name “Liebke and Bowden” is crying out for a much-awaited sitcom that ends up getting canceled after one season.

  2. I decided to be angry with this one. I don’t think that Steve Smith warranted four out of six ridiculous points. Three maximum. Two would have been my mark for him.

    You can’t have the same fellow top score with the bat and top score with ridiculousness. That is illogical to the point of being ridiculous…ah!

    I think Liebke & Bowden ought to have been a men’s doubles partnership from the 1970s. One of those pairings that just missed out to the likes of Newcombe & Roche, Hewitt & McMillan, McNamara & McNamee (I’m not making these up)…

    Liebke would have been the one with the antipodean tash…obvs.
