If Onions had played, it would've been a more entertaining series, just cause his name makes me chuckle.

Who needs Gilly, ay?

Wow. We need another RIP English Cricket headline tomorrow. That petulant fielding and bowling display was abysmal. They should be ashamed to call themselves international cricketers.

England are shit.
But it doesnt help when Billy Doctrove is blind - Bopara's LBW was not out

This will be over by tea tomorrow. AUS win by an innings and 50 odd unless it rains all day. And Cardiff is a rubbish ground, should have been in England!

COME ON RAIN, ENGLAND's 12th MAN!

Yeah but Bopara is garbage, and deserves to get out.

And if we really want to go down the bad calls road, how about Martyn's THREE dodgy LBW's that probably were the deciding factor in England claiming the series.

Anyway, I have to say that England's tactics this morning were a major reason why 2020 is getting mroe popular: who wants to watch a defeated side change the field every ball and delibrately and agonisingly waste time to play for the rain. I was appalled

Really goes to show the difference between West Indies and a depleted Australia... Bopara barely looked like a grade player.

I hope an Ashes test is never staged here again, shockingly benign pitch

And Dan, all I have to say is that I agree with just about everything you say. Watching England's tactics an hour ago, and their performance in the field... it's disheartening when you consider the rich history.

And has there ever been a less intimidating bowling line up (maybe discount Fred) than Broad-Anderson-Swann-Panesar-Collingwood?

We could have made 1000.

And England are 2/17.

Woeful.

Meanwhile, is Mohammad Ashraful the most disappointing test cricketer? In terms of unfulfilled potential?

Or does the wasting talent award go firmly to Pietersen, who acted like a two year old and saw nothing wrong with the fact he played probably one of the most disgusting shots we've ever seen?

Rain, Luck and Byes have been the Poms best players for ages
since Luck and Byes are not turning up they will have to depend on Rain

For anyone getting the Sky Sports feed, this commentary is terrible. I'm not too concerned with the bias, just that they have nothing to say. There are periods for a good minute where nothing is said. Just doesn't happen with Bill, Tony, Austin Powers, Slats, Tubby, Ian, Rich, and the rest.

It's got David Lloyd and his wicked accent, that's enough for me.

Joy to watch four Aussies get centuries, almost effortlessly. I also had a laugh seeing the Poms shaking hands and smiling, well they wouldn't be tearing the hell out of each other since for them it's an all too familiar sight being murdered by many, many runs.

44-4 - i could do better than that. KP should be fined 4 weeks wages

Aus should have put the under 15's out to make this series competitive

I'm watching F1 instead now

5/94 at lunch, I told people we'd win.

So am I, and five laps in and I think Webber's lost it... as we know whoever is leading on lap 1 essentially wins the race these days.
