I went absolutely bananas at Lovebox yesterday so glad it got wrapped up early.

Roll on OT.

Cloud conditions early on and new ball makes this mornings session interesting. I am sure I saw BF nodding off in the crowd yesterday.

Jack is back baby.....

Re: The Ashes (Possible 2 pager)

Great day yesterday.

The salmon chinos went down a storm.

When we get in, we've got to play defensive and hold on for a day and a half at least and get a draw.  Finish today like we finished day 2 at Trent Bridge

Their attack is pretty poor to be honest, my only concern is how such a big score affects confidence in our top order.

Rain this afternoon and showers all day tomorrow and heavy rain on Monday.  I can smell a cheeky draw and the Ashes retained.

Re: The Ashes (Possible 2 pager)

Trust that Big Fella is absolutely motoring through the pints..

Re: The Ashes (Possible 2 pager)

Hopefully we can get stuck into the tail now.

Spent all arvo in the verve click tent no jokes

Re: The Ashes (Possible 2 pager)

Another 61 runs to avoid the follow-on - if we get that, it looks like the weather will hand us a spawny draw and we can retain The Ashes.  57 runs now.

Re: The Ashes (Possible 2 pager)

Happy days. You could see the life drain out of their faces when the rain came. going to be a quiet few weeks here.

Just want to make sure we don't lose them when it comes here after. For that reason i'm saying nothing. But if it does happen, then the real fun will begin.

Part of the problem

Re: The Ashes (Possible 2 pager)

draw looking likely given the weather

however we've given away our 3 wickets far too cheaply this morning

Re: The Ashes (Possible 2 pager)

That first innings declaration looks like a bad decision in hindsight. There were quick and easy runs available.

I don't like the Aussies but I'm glad they've put all this 10-0 talk to bed (barring Bairstow and Prior putting on run-a-ball centuries - lol).

Re: The Ashes (Possible 2 pager)

Cook needs to have a word, he's been shit for 3 tests now.

A couple of half centuries is hardly 'fucking shit' perhaps a bit bobbins.
