    Happy with the first innings result including a hat-trick. Should be the most interesting Ashes series in a good while.

    I agree, I reckon England will be a little apprehensive after the (good) performance by Australia - the next few hours should be interesting, but the Aussies have started well

    I hope that it's not going to be another poor batting performance by England

    The only cricket I played was as a kid in the garden. My Godfather was a fan and dragged us to many matches. I never understood the game. I only know that I never had a turn to bat, was always the bowler of apples from the garden trees, HAD to let the boys "get our hundred" and am as bemused by it now as I was then!!!! Enjoy!

    Well it's a draw - good result for both, I suppose

    Could not watch any on TV as the French are not into cricket - so I had to be content with the internet - and again some parts of the "short vids" from the BBC are blocked in France
