Australians probably shouldn't bother. Today's live youtube : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XxbCnOI1K84
if you can stand that insufferable Boycott.

Can't judge a wicket until both teams have batted on it.....

No matter what the wicket - that is a pretty woeful performance by Australia.

You are aware your comment matched that of a former Oz captain??

Re: ashes 2015 commentary online?

I think we safely say the pitch has nothing to do with it.


Paraphrased from Twatter:
Experience the thrill of being an Australian Ashes batsman by walking to the middle of a large field, turning round, and walking back again.

Although my comment was tongue in cheek the pitch has everything to do with it. It's home advantage and making the pitch to suit the home side is what should and has been done.... And the aussies have been dreadful!

I expect in 2 years time the aussies will make their pitches to suit them and will regain the ashes again.

Re: ashes 2015 commentary online?

Not sure why the Aussies are getting wickets here. Just means they have to go in and bat again...and that isn't likely to last long.

Think this will all be wrapped up by the end of the day!

I guess the quicker they bowl England out, the quicker they'll be able to throw the towel in on the 2nd innings.

I don't think you'd get many takers for a day 3 ticket, for sure.

Broad and Moeen scored 20 in an over. That's a third of the total Aussie runs

Re: ashes 2015 commentary online?

And England declare. I don't see England batting again in this match.

Hoping for a good 600 runs from Australia and a well fought draw...just to keep 22 yards happy

Re: ashes 2015 commentary online?

So, as I've always said, I've always been a huge fan of the women's game. Never thought much of men's cricket.

Go for it, girls, you're just one T20 from regaining the Ashes!

I fully agree.

(Luckily for you, I decided not to upload a photo of Aussie blokes at the beach.)
