You can say that again!

I was best man at a Sikh wedding.... 5 nights of hammeredness!

The Sikh religion's pretty reasonable and is probably the one that fits in best with others.

Fascinating to hear Tommy Robinson of the English Defence League recently praising the Sikh community - 'we have a tremendous rapport and relationship with them'.

I hadn't heard that.

It is true tho. Sikhs are very easy going in terms of their religion and integrating with others. Other than the lack of hair chopping they are pretty relaxed all in all.

I have several British Asian mates and the Brit Sikhs and Brindians are top draw.

Well, what can u say, 5 wickets down before lunch and a lead of only 32.

This has all the makings of a great match.

Well, I certainly wasn't expecting that. Hats off to Stuart Broad.

Nor was I, I left the bar I was watching the game in when they were something like 150/2 fully expecting to see the finish today.

Moral of the story is, don't leave a bar.

I never thought this one could get interesting but....

We bowl them out and bed 220 or so in 40 overs?

Game on.

Mystic Meg here.

Fair play to Clarke for giving a game of it.

Fair play to Clarke for 'making a game of it' although he had zero ****ing choice really.

But I wonder if he'd have been such a complete **** to the umpires if we were 100-9 with 5 overs left?

Would Starc have pulled out of deliveries? Bowled dodgy wides? Unlikely.

Still, who really gives a ****, 3-0.

Unbelievably just seen a message on TMS saying that we're not a top side because we can't finish teams off.

Haddin and Johnson aren't actually bad batsmen....we'll get there...

We are playing in Australia and have them on the ropes and some people will still find a reason to moan!

And another one goes!!!

And it looks like Australia are still experimenting with the inverted batting line up tactic they first trialed this summer.

(From TMS).

Broad is certainly having the last laugh.
