Unforced error and I don't mean the too much Indian takeaway I ate.

I think this low run rate will come back to bite us.

Would rather the low run rate than getting rolled over. Didn't sound like there was much pace in the pitch either.

Shame, as I would have loved to have Lyons words stuffed back his throat, although there is still time to do so. A bit more pace might suit YJB's style of batting if it picks up day 2

haha, happy to disappoint you on this occasion. I got used to explaining Ashes to everyone at work (in UK) back in 2005, where for one brief moment the rest of England got interested. For about 5 minutes

The BT coverage was abysmal. Little to no technical analysis plus they have annoying Australians on there with their awful accents. They sound like a dolphin being run over.

Pizza tonight I think. Given the length of the match, I think I can manage two large ones.

We're doing our best to lose this test against very mediocre opposition.

Cook's spent force.

Its funny how the aussi bowlers are getting so much out of the pitch when the England bowlers struggled so much.

Lyon gets far more bounce and turn than Ali and I'm disappointed with Woakes. I thought both his bowling and batting would be the difference, I suppose they are but not in our favour.
