Well there has been, for me so far, a certain lack of "electricity" being shown by 1 of the batting teams I will admit.

Cheers.

Draw, so all to play for at Headingley. Aussies win, they retain the Ashes, we win & prolong the agony.

A major advantage for Thursday, hope it's put to good use.
Hope he recovers in time for the 4th test

A great 1st day - a full innings.
Aus all out for 179 - Archer 6-45. :-)

Thought being bowled out for 85 at Lords by Ireland was bad enough - 67 all out is a joke. Bye Bye Ashes.
1 saving grace, that draw saves us from a "pomwash".

We need 2 teams. Test & ODI. Until that happens, you might as well hold onto the Ashes indefinitely.

WHAT??????

Well I didn't expect to see England win this one after their ***p first innings and the Australian good but not impressive second innings.

Talk about taking it to the wire.

One day when I retire, I really must try to understand what cricket is all about, and the rules.
Until then, it's totally incomprehensible what they are doing out there.

As a native of these fair islands I am supposed to declare that I understand the rules and laws of cricket, but I must admit to having only the slightest grasp of the basics, anything beyond that is a very dense fog.

However I will admit that watching a game of "village cricket" on a village green on a warm summer's day from the beer tea tent is very relaxing ;-)

Test cricket has been somewhat disappointing from an England point of view over the past 40 years. However, the magic returns when 2 names are mentioned...
...Botham, Flintoff.

We can now add a 3rd...
...Stokes.

Proper nail-biting day.
