Aussies would have won that if Clark had used reviews wisely.

one of the most enjoyable games I've watched in ages. however nothing compares with the '87 Ashes down under for me at least.

Yeah there was a lot of suspense at the end, both teams played well on the whole.

it's funny how the game has changed so much, become more competitive, less patient, quicker, much like the modern world has become.

but the expression 'that's just not cricket, old boy' is outdated after you see every one waiting for the umpires decision and reviews. that's a bit of a shame. I still remember when batsmen 'walked' and bouncing 'catches' weren't claimed.

I think it would have been cool if Broad had walked, even though we would have lost the test.

But Aussies haven't walked since Gilchrist, I think.

I hope cricket never ends up like football where diving is seen as part of the game.

I doubt that could ever happen. Cricket is more of an institution than a sport. A shame that sportsmanship seems to be a thing of the past.

Apparently Gilchrist copped a lot of grief from his own team back in the day for walking.

I think walking is a moot point nowadays as the hawkeye reviews give chances for the bowling team to contest, but the limited number of reviews mean that they should not be squandered.

I think Clark wasted his reviews.

What is the world coming to when people can't play cricket with dignity and honesty.
Almost everyone in the '80's walked. LBW being the only point of contention.

W00t they baggies got skittled!

Not sure what is going on with the pitch, should be a batsman's playground in theory.

Have you been watching it Bondi?

Holy moly! R00t!

We lead by 566 with five wickets remaining.

I wonder if Cook will declare overnight, or let Root try for a double century just for a laugh?

Tomorrow should be a fun day for sport, watching Australia being made into pate, Froome looks set to win the Tour, then there is Laguna Seca .

watching it on sky sports through some streaming channel. IMO the commentators are just as enjoyable to listen too as it is to watch the Aussies embarrassing themselves.

(they are all smokers, well most of them. Gower and Botham and Holdings for sure).

You can get the podcast of test match special online- the commentary there is great if you can dig the slightly publicschool vibe.
Boycott is a little abrasive but despite being a selfish wifebeater, he does know his cricket.

Not that I disagree about the sky commentary being good too. But the way to go is TMS for audio.

Yeah Botham is a toker. I think a lot of cricketers toke. Didn't almost the entire NZ team get had up one year?
I think weed lends itself to hand eye co ordination and concentration if you channel it right.


And yeah! Toasted the aussies! R000t!

I grew up around the Middlesex County Cricket club. A good friend was almost professional. Went to many events at the club and there was always a smell of weed from the VIP pavilion.

Definitely a smokers game. Touring between India, Pakistan and the West Indies..........

They are trying to turn it into a 'young mans, athletic type' sport but I hope that doesn't happen.

I want to see thirty something, slightly chubby batsmen that hit boundaries because they don't want to run!
