OK many people find cricket boring but I almost wish I was back on nights so I could sit up on my nights off to watch the action live.

I actually believe England will beat the Aussies this time around for the first time, in Australia, since 1987.

You always were an optimist!

Must say, over the summer I caught a couple of 20 20 matches and thought they were great to watch - they had to go for the runs rather than play safe, so the game got very exciting.

Looking forward to the tests, and a England win 3-1 ;) The Aussie team is the worst i've ever seen, i've even heard they're begging Shane Warne to come out of retirement and play :lol: at 41 :shock: even the reliable Ponting is struggling for runs. Come on boys, up and at 'em. :mrgreen:
BTW highlights will be shown on ITV4 at 10pm each evening.

Its gonna be a great competition. Whilst i'll be rooting for England i fully expect the Aussies to take it up to England. I think i will wait for after day 1 at the Gabba on Thursday before i make a comment on who will win.

Poor decision to bat first. I would have exposed the Aussies (who are all struggling) to the swinging green top that is this Gabba pitch. I think Cook and Bell are looking solid so far.

Hehehehe, go the Aussies!

Definitely the most bland Aussie bowling attack, I suppose at least we don't have Hauritz anymore. We've still ripped through England in under a day. Still think it'll be a good series, but England definitely wont be holding that little urn at the end.

The Aussies bowled well to be honest, great hat-trick by Siddell, we were lucky to get 260.

Thank god for Bell. A very much improved batsman.

England need early wickets tomorrow. At this stage i have the Aussies slightly ahead. But a quick wicket will turn the game again. All in all, today was tense, which is how test cricket should be.
