    Pathetic. Botham predicted 5-0. He might be right after all.

    Don't worry!  Bresnan has got Rodgers.  It's the start of a huge batting collapse!

    Oh lordy! What a bunch of merde sacs. I don't think I can recall such a shambles. At least in 2006/07 Colly got a double ton. *officially in sulk mood*

    And to cheer you up if you haven't already seen it wait till you see Pietersens dismissal! Utterly brainless when he was playing as fluently as he has all year.

    So mr pieterson


    Hit six then they put the fielder back on the exact place he hit it so instead of aiming elsewhere his ego sees it as a challenge and try's it again -out.  Pathetic.

    Boycs was ripping into him on the radio the other day for just this kind of thing, and that was even before this latest piece of stupidity.

    Well done Australia, thoroughly deserved if classless winners. Well done Ben Stokes for proving Boycott wrong. And fuck off Tony Hill - possibly the worst umpire around at the moment.

    Congrats to the Aussies - I could bring up the 3 lost tosses in a row but that would be churlish. England have been dire and deserve to have their noses rubbed in it. @Ryan enjoy it while you can - We'll smash you in Melbourne ;)

    Well played Australia.  They did what the Mancs did last season - win because the opposition was weak while they themselves were average - but you still have to get the job done and they did that.

    I hope the selectors are ruthless and give Ballance a bat.  Bin prior for bairstow and drop bresnan.  I also hope they drop swann for Monty.

    Finn or rankin in as well.

    That's alot of changes Fox!  Pietersen deffo needs a kick up the arse, what on earth was he thinking. I thought Clarke was very cute when he was batting, he kept changing the field to Lyons as it was pretty obvious Pietersen was premeditating where he would hit him, and maybe this muddled him a bit. As shots go trying to clear long on whilst in the process of trying to save the game was criminal.

    Let Balance have a go against the Sri Lankans in June, when he has a better chance of a successful start to his test career. He is a very good prospect from what I've seen.

    Silly fucker Kohli got Pujara run out there. Pujara looked like he was in one of his trademark "i will be the last man out" mode, until that point. A big score was there for taking.

    India with a very solid 1st inning so far mind - 225/5 ... Morkel has been fantastic.
