Default The Ashes

It's generally wet and the England cricket team are playing Australia at watchable times for us here. Not doing well so far in the series and at the start of the second match but making a game of it at present.

I've been watching the BT Sport coverage through:

https://www.crichd.com/the-ashes-live-stream

Click on one of the outlets. I've used BT Sport, Willow and Super Sport so far. You will need to persevere in deleting ad windows to get video and sound, especially the latter, maybe ten times or so.

Very difficult to get full screen, I got it just once.

Yes, looks likely unless the top order can score more runs and they can hold more catches. Stokes now the only hope for saving the second test and he's been out of test cricket for 4 years.
Match of the Day meant literally that on Saturday and canceled EPL games will likely increase over the next few weeks so I will be watching the next test on Boxing Day nevertheless.

Looks like we're playing for the draw - if anyone can stay in long enough

Anyway - I hope you guys and gals are okay over there - not sure how widespread the damage is from the typhoons but stay safe

we are well above the typhoon strike

The south is usually typhoon free ,similar latitude to sabah....''the land beneath the winds''

This year Luzon has missed out, they go north before they get this far, or have hit south. Only worry now is that we may have a severe water shortage in the north before next summer.

Yes, some areas in Mindanao unusually got a pasting and parts of the Visayas were as usual under the track of a typhoon..
The effects were wider for one establishment I visited today. Unable to transact business as their server in Cebu had been knocked out.

England have got to a late tea break. Two wickets and about 30 overs left to try to survive. Butler 25 from 196 balls.
Whatever the final result encouraging at least that they didn't keel over to the Aussies.

Another test. another early England opener wicket.

I couldn't get Vip Box to work this morning so viewing on CricHD, Beinsports stream.

If you can't stand the commentary you could have the BBC's Test Match Special on. But its well behind the video. It also needs a VPN.

The Ashes are on free to air here - channel 7 and online at 7+. Not sure if that's accessible at all.

Sorry for the bum steer - it looked like it might be possible from first glance

Main irritation for me is that the BT Sport ball by ball commentary has to squeeze itself into the constant chatter, which to me should be between overs.

No argument from me on that - and to be honest, I'm not sure channel 7 is any better.

Not the greatest first session for England though.
