It's not only started,but England win by one wicket All hail Lord Ben Stokes, give hime the Sports personality trophy NOW, or at least make sure the shjort list has only his name on. 75 runs out of a stand of 76 for the last wicket, and he hits the winner, best batting by an Engkland man since Botham on the same ground, in fact his performance eclipses Botham's.

Hey Smithy! Is that all your boys have got?

The most remarkable England victory I've seen. The most remarkable batting display too!

See 3 mins 17 secs for the reverse sweep 6!

Please don't forget Jack Leach, only scored one run, but kept the innings going so that Stokes could win the match, possibly the most important innings ever for just one run.

England need a very good start tomorrow or it's done.

Steve Smith is a one man team and they need his wicket yesterday.

Yes agree.Not likely at the moment lets hope he,s bowed early in the morning:fingerscrossed:

It's done. England literally threw it away with dropped catches.

Hi Jamesm. Yes agree the bowling was under par as the fielding And.team spirit seemed low too they had no idea how to bowel at smith.If the batters do not preform today we,ve had it .Watching was pretty tough
yesterday especially the no ball to smith.Lets hope for a good batting performance

They have a shot. Decent batting conditions tomorrow. It was annoying today when they dropped Smith again- thankfully he didn't punish us too badly but he is an absolute steamroller!

They got there in the end.

I thought the media were a bit dim and gloom because the Aussies retained the Ashes. The draw shows that England retain some quality although we all really wanted the urn.

On to New Zealand and SA for the winter.

Re: ashes
 
Yes i agree. I think if they did not have smith we could have won the series great player. There were a few pluses for England along the way a well deserved win.
