Watching the cricket, I am very impressed by the beauty of the stunning Sri Lankan setting.

Watching the Big Bash, Sydney vs Perth, Vince (S), Roy & Livingstone (P).

Perth hit a 6 into the crowd, people jump and miss the ball whilst another guy with beer hand catches the ball one handed and not spilling a drop, people rush in to high 5 and Pat him on his back, beer split, sods Law? But funny :o :clap: :(

It's been a while since I was last in Oz but beer would come in 3 sizes: a glass, a middy (or pot) and a schooner. The schooner was the biggest and was about 4/5ths of a pint.

Pretty much right, the glass is usually called a 7 and mainly for spirits, middy or pot (in Victoria) and the Schooner are our other size glasses. A lot of places now do sell pints as well.

I was last there 30 years ago this year. That thought makes me feel old. I spent a year backpacking around Oz on a year-long work visa. Downed quite a few schooners.
