    Serious manlove from me for Pat Cummins. He is the Lewis Stevenson of cricket.

    Tbh Aussies have some quality players who always seem to step up to the plate when it matters.

    His 38 and 4 wickets in the 1st test were superb.

    England bottling it big time for me.

    Yeah. Cummins has brilliant figures but this figures against England are even better still, on the whole.

    There is a lot of quality in there, you are right. Good opportunity for Murphy coming up, with three Tests pretty much guaranteed due to Lyon's injury.

    Although, given Travis Head is spinning competently, they could emulate England and go with five quicks - Cummins, Starc, Hazlewood, Boland and Green! That's maybe one for the Oval

    Lyonís is a big loss with call and can bat a bit too!

    Thatís a scary bowling line up for sure.

    As I mentioned they gave quality in depth and a superb batting line up too!

    The best England can expect from this latest test is a draw imho but thatís at a struggle!

    Clean catch. Bad VAR decision.

    I hate dismissals like that. Itís Bairstows fault but if youíre going to get someone out do it when theyíre aware of whatís happening itís like that one recently where the bowler took the bails of to run out the batter at the non strikers end when he was running in to bowl. Itís within the laws of the game but in a game thatís supposed to played by gentlemen itís not something I like to see.

    United we stand here....

    I'd agree. He would have avoided grounding it afterwards if he thought the ball was still 'live'.

    It is ion Bairstow, but heís got his back to the wickets. As I said Bairstow should know better but I donít like seeing it.

    He is an absolute dick. Giving Carey grief which is rich coming from him who didn't walk when he nicked the biggest edge ever in cricket history.

    He will probably be out as soon as I post this but watching Stokes at work here is an absolute joy.

    Was listening to a discussion regarding the Current Ashes and someone reckoned England lost the series the moment Stokes declared the first Innings of the first test too soon instead of pushing on.

    Yes there are still 3 tests to go but they reckon England will be lucky to win one let alone the 3 needed to win

    All Bairstows fault that.
    Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, vodka in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming, "WOO HOO what a ride!"

    I accept there was an element of controversy but it wasn't the gross injustice England are claiming. Had Bairstow done the same while wicket keeping for England he'd likely have been praised for his quick thinking.

    It was also an excellent throw from the Aussie keeper.

    A reminder why no one should ever take integrity lessons from Stuart Broad

    I think there's a validity to that. You can certainly blame the outcome of the first Test on that.

    And in a way it probably led to another moment which contributed to the second defeat. Root should have reverted back to a far less attacking approach in the first innings, but was out playing Bazball.

    Obviously the coin toss was a mistake in hindsight, though it is one of those ones that if you repeated it without knowing the outcome you would make the same decision again and again.

    I think the simplest explanation is the best - England are playing against the best team in the world, both objectively and subjectively. And their team isn't strong enough. More on that later.

    Yip also when Dunkley was on 98 and went for the glory shot instead of knocking it for a single and being patient. All these small things that boost the morale of the opposition.
