The Sri Lankans body language is weak, they need to puff up their chests.

On a serious note, is that a very small ground? Some of Ronchi's sixes were crazy.

Ground looks oddly shaped and maybe a bit small in some spots but most of those 6s were a good 90 - 100 meters in length.

Well in that case, I can't wait for him to play in a game commentated by Brayshaw.

Mate this is cricket we're talking about.

It'd be a round-robin reality TV competition with completely obtuse scoring that inexplicably lasted six months.

Looks like he'd fit in with having a beer afterwards too.

I'm not sure he'd leave any beer for the rest, probably get in a fight with David Warner, probably win it. So all in all a great prospect, definitely one for the selectors.

I don't have a major gripe with that decision but you can't say Warner was clearly better than Bracewell in that game, 9/60 match analysis including bowling us to the win defending 241 with Australia 122/1 at one stage.

I'm sure that whatever our opinions of the decision are, we can all agree it should be loving KFC SMS bullshit making it.

They're poo poo and don't even try to win, and their teacher/captain was a try-hard dick that would change the field 3 times an over and cheated when he was umpire, so gently caress 'em.

I think Australia could defend 150, more due to England having a mental collapse, but it's moot because our bowlers won't score the runs.

This is true, remember that small but shaky run chase in India?

Well we saw how well this England side went without Anderson last test when he didn't take any wickets. It's never good to see someone injured, but Australia have retained the Ashes with confirmation that he's out.

A bit early for predictions, no? England went pretty well this innings with him injured.

Wait what? Root has facial hair? I just saw him on the telly and it didn't look like he had any.

Also, Starc is batting quite nicely, maybe he can give the middle order a clinic later.

Unless the accountants get control of things, I don't think there's a drawn test to be had in the series, such is the dearth of batting quality on both sides.
