Yeah, it was right to charge him. In fact, they should have done it before, when he crossed the line during the winter over something. And he does need to change his behaviour. But "Sir Ian" is hardly one to be throwing stones.

If there was a 'head in hands' smiley, I think this would be a good time to use it :lol: Surely we're not going to end up drawing this series... are we!? :lol:

I've ceased to be amazed at what happens in this series. If you read my blog article, you'll see that this is beyond the reams of what we've come to expect from cricket playing conditions. It's a lottery now, of batting collapses and crazy sessions.

EG.

Well there you go, haha. 240 runs without a wicket. "Cricket in extremis", indeed.

It was gonna be either 350-7, or England all out for 230 and Pakistan 70-6 in reply at the close.

Yeah that was one hell of an effort from Trott and Broad, unbelievable :smt023 I honestly thought we'd be all out for 115 and then Pakistan would be batting the rest of the day...

Ashes kick off on Thursday... 'mon England!

Very worried that things have gone so well on the tour so far and that some people are actually making us slight favourites... I'll feel more comfortable when normal service resumes and Australia are 400-1 after the first day :lol:

Methinks half our media have written us off and are backing you guys to retain the Ashes! I won't be so parochial this time, only cos I think England have a good chance of winning the Test series, but time will tell on that one, we'll just wait and see :wink:. I will still celebrate any Australian victory loudly though, don't get me wrong, but we definitely aren't half the side we used to be. If Mitchell Johnson bowls s***, or Mike Hussey or Marcus North or both bat like s***, then I can only hope commonsense will prevail and they get dumped from the team.

I guess we should expect some Andy B grandstanding/puffing of the very English chest in here sometime soon..... :roll: :p

Mitchell Johnson did end up bowling... well... I don't know what the word is really :lol:

I woke up and checked my phone's Ashes app on Monday morning and saw that our score was 517... a good total but maybe not as good as it could've been from 309-1. And then I checked the full scorecard and realised it was 517-1 :shock: :lol: Never thought I'd see an England team achieve a score like that and certainly not in Australia!

A polite term would be wayward. A less polite term would be s***house. :lol:

Bowling + fielding let us down. Dropped too many catches and the bowlers once again proved we can't put the screws on in dire situations like we used to.

Bright spots from my perspective? Peter Siddle's efforts in the English 1st innings...admittedly even I was puzzled as to why Doug Bollinger had been dropped, but Siddle answered his critics well and good, including myself. Mike Hussey again proving what an absolute champ he is (and again, I've knocked him several times too), that man's got more lives than a cat I swear! Brad Haddin too stepping up to the plate, he's also copped a wee bit of late with Tim Paine playing so well. Xavier Doherty doing a decent job on debut, despite also dropping a catch.

Hoping North + Johnson get dropped for Adelaide, also hoping Clarke will too, but I doubt it.

Couldn't give a *beep* now Mr B, so keep on beating the chest all you want. May as well keep the Ashes on you the way we're going :roll:
