    Hopefully, start of a great, great Ashes. The way CA is acting these days, I hope in 4 years time we can see another Ashes in AUS with the game intact to it's core.

    Great call by ENG - normally tourists land in AUS and looking at the grass & carry at Gabba, they fell into the trap of bowling first. I am sure this track will get faster on Day 2/3 and It'll take turn on Day 4/5.

    Still 1-0 to hosts.

    According to the BBC line up Moeen Ali is down to bat at 6. Excellent move by England if true.

    Anything over 400 and England will be in the driving seat.

    I really like Alison Mitchell, she has great knowledge of the game and soothing voice.

    But I agree nothing on the Sky commie team.

    Looks like these two had a briefing from Azhar Ali before coming out to bat

    No way, I think the Aussies might scrape a draw in one of the tests.

    Very good from Australia. If England keep batting at this pace, it only builds up a false sense of security. If they don't start scoring in the second session, Australia will take control. One breakthrough and there's every chance Australia will go bang bang because all four are keeping up the pressure.

    I don’t mind this approach on the first morning. It’s a great batting track so it’s vital for England to use it first innings.

    Wear down the Aussie bowlers & the runs will flow as the day goes on .

    Great start by us although I am slightly worried because it all seems to be going a little bit too well.

    Watching a stream from Willow [Channel 9?] and does anyone else think that KP is intentionally being annoying to Mark Taylor? A glimpse into how he became the most hated man in his dressing room.

    So that's the way he actually sounds?

    Sounds weird as, he sounded far more natural before.
