Should be a good series though - a big challenge for me will be avoiding the score until the highlights come on the BBC!
The deciding factors may be injuries and fast bowling. Last time England were lucky to be able to play a fixed side throughout the series. The Aussies were lacking support for Glen McGrath, and he was out for three games including both England wins.
Off to bed now. Recording the rest of the day's play, but I'm not sure when, if ever, I'll get to watch it.
I give you 70-30 for the first session for sure.
I've only seen the round-up of the rest of the day's play so I can't score the sessions, but I'd say we took the points for the day.
ETA: Putting bold tags around the apostrophe in Lord's to show that I've learned my lesson didn't do a great deal, did it?
I'm actually back in the UK during this next test so all I need to do is persuade the couple whose wedding we're going to to not bother and then I might get down there in time ;-)
...for the rain
Best ever opening partnership for England I believe... mind you it was that at 0/50! Sorry, 50/0 - when in Rome...
Why, oh why don't we have Ritchie Benaud commentating right now??? 222/2!
ETA: 450? Hollow laughter now that Strauss is out second ball of the day!
Wait... eyes uncrossed again, can't see the telly.
ETA Did I mention that it has been 75 years?
Good luck against Northants!
Still it looks a good pitch at the moment so we need 450+
ETA the conventional E in viewing.
I tried so hard to stay awake when I got home to watch but fell asleep when we were 1/23ish...
Good to see Ponting went on a bit & sad to see Hussy's still in his rut... Looks like Ricky wasn't only making excuses when he said that we like to come from behind in a series. & looks like the Aussies havn't lost The Ashes yet!
England look flat and it is very likely to go to the fifth test at "Brit Oval" (is that the same as "The Oval"?) one apiece.
All the best to both sides.
ps Sorry* about waking you up early.
*Damn I wish I'd thought of that.
Did you notice how I avoided discussing the test series?
