Smart decision by Australia. Destroy the England bowling, declare overnight, and then have six sessions to attack them. This could have repercussions for the whole series.

England don't have a Michael Atherton/Rahul Dravid-type to just stick around at the wicket and bat out those six sessions so the result's a pretty foregone conclusion. Oh right, they've got Ashley Giles.

By the way theQuiet1 your commentary link works fine! Thanks! Would, as mentioned before, much prefer TMS (because they're actually at the ground and you can hear the crowd and all) but this is better than nothing. Damn the rights restrictions fascists.

Glad that it works OK. And I agree 100% about the rights restrictions, seems ridiculous if you ask me.

I know. It's becoming painful to watch. Even if we end up losing the Ashes couldn't we at least put up a bit of resistance?!

I'm a real sucker for punishment.

Managed to find a um, method, to tune into the ABC.

www.radiosport.co.nz has commentary as well. Agnew and Roebuck amongst the commentators. Pretty good!

Aggers gets around doesn't he? He's speaking on the ABC right now!

Some daft batting. Strauss especially. Collingwood, after what he'd done. I'd be surprised if Pietersen's there at close.

Augurs well for a competitive Second Test, I think. To post 370 against any Australian side is very good.

Panesar should come back for the next match. He'd better. Most likely he'd replace Giles, but I'm beginning to warm to the idea of him going into the side ahead of Harmison or Anderson. Depends on the pitch report at Adelaide. Either way him and Flintoff would be great to watch. Monty can hold up the one end, giving Flintoff license to destroy at the other.

Mahmood can keep a wide berth (no pun) though. He'll take wickets but will end up even more expensive than Harmy, and that's saying a lot. Will be a big force in years to come, just not now.

Yes why do I have the feeling England will live to regret that decision when Australia are going for their fourth innings run chase?

Wow, the English have actually discovered how to hold the bat!

and they didn't embarrass themselves

if Flintoff's indeed is injured I hope it won't be too bad
I don't think the poms would be able to bounce back from that for sheer psychological reasons


Ponting is playing captain's innings here, there and everywhere
