The Ashes

Recommended Posts

Turned it back on just after lunch. Looking forward to the highlights to see Root's knock, and sounds like Stokes is having a good waft - I've not actually seen anything of him with my eyeballs yet, so will enjoy that.  I put a whippet* on him getting at least a half century.  Looking at returns of £13.75.

Decent first day that, close. Good knock by Root. Their bowlers were patchy which offers a bit of hope. Never felt like Johnson was a real threat and Starc hurt himself. The rest are solid triers.

you get the feeling that ENG underperformed today as a whole on this pitch but they did better than I expected, mostly thanks to Root who is a quite remarkable batter, arguably the best we've had since Thorpe.  if we can add another 50-60 i'd say it's all square but how the aging Aussie line-up does will be key.  think this'll be a draw.

Flat pitch though, Johnson was always going to struggle on a pitch like that.

 

he struggles everywhere outside Aus and SA.
