Oh for sure, early on 'I knew' they'd lose. I had already booked the holiday and would've taken it in any case (could do with a break TBH).

Just that it's typical that I deliberately take holiday to view it, and we lose heavily. That scenario always seems to happen when I sit down and decide to 'see the match through'!

Murphy's Law and all that...

Yup! Like the commentator's curse.

I guess I should spend a few hours in the Pillory for my actions...

Toss lost, one hand behind our backs already .

Will be interesting to see how Bell and Finn get on in the next 5 days.

Chris this could be the last time you get to slate the Shermanator at this level

Now that's what I call a good pitch

And Finn well done for delivering an inswinging yorker to Clarke, at last an English pace bowler since Gough to know how to deliver the perfect ball

I said to the guys at work I'd like to win the toss and bowl and was shot down in flames.


Sitting here feeling rather smug right now

Mental! Just mental.

Okay, so it's 'ideal' English conditions... But NO WAY are they "60 all out in 18.3 ovs" conditions!!!

Ha ha, how I laugh that - of all morts - it's Broad that is their nemesis in all this carnage. His figures? 8-15!

Good to know my Aussie mates are still up watching this, although they're not taking too kindly to my texts.

Sat round the pool on my hols watching it today and how much did I enjoy that with the Sky Sports web commentary - Root has just hit a six or as it is now known 1/10th of an Aussie 1st innings

Cool

Fantastic!

Loved every minute of it.

Can't wait for the end of The Oval test and the trophy presentation and celebrations.

That ball of Warne to Gatting still amazes me, one of the best deliveries there has ever been. And the Ashes will never be the same without the amazing commentary and punditry of Richie Benaud
