I can't even get excited about teenagers anymore, for some reason I'm just off the cricket.

Well this match has been great so far and just when England were really bossing it........

Haha best typo ever.

Teenagers = The Ashes.

Although I spoke too soon, this has been exciting stuff.

Still miss slacking off and sitting in the pub wioth my mates though.

I did wonder whether social services should be involved!

I love a nail-biting test. This morning I thought England had it in the bag. A huge run chase for Australia, but you never know.

Great to see England on the front foot again - win or lose. Root, Ali, Stokes and Wood are great to watch - Ballance, Bell and Buttler battling through difficulties, a real fighting team - even Broad seems to have woken up a little.

Let's hope the twelfth man has plenty of Mars Bars:

So, third test coming up; another whitewash or will England surprise us?

I susect it will depend on the pitch and the toss again.

Wasn't expecting that. Now we just need the batsmen to take their time a bit and not get out stupidly. This opener isn't looking too clever...

PGC is the Oracle on the cricket. Love her input.

Ps. And always the best girl on the EDF.

PPS. Typed with a slightly dizzy head and listening to Van from Cyprus Avenue.

Gosh MM, you've made me blush. Perhaps you'd better edit again this morning when your hangover kicks in.

That was an exciting first day.

Trivial 'fact' of the day:

Apparently the term "cow corner" was first used at Dulwich College.

However, I can't pin down whether this is true or not.

This test could be over by lunch on day 3. But could definitely go either way at the moment.

Is Stuart Broad any good?

Wow - how did that happen

Hope England can score a few.

I miss ther CPT and all my aussie mates. I'd have been heading straight there from work in years gone by.

Broad was due. Anderson dominated one test, Finn another.

Stokes's catch though, and Broad's reaction to it, fantasy cricket.

Hey, just heard on the grapevine that the highly acclaimed 'Death of Gentleman' (a documentary about corruption and the potential death of Test cricket) might be showing at the ED PictureHouse on Sunday 27th September, if they can get enough people to sign up. Sadly I can't make it that day, but the place to sign up to make it happen is here: [www.ourscreen.com]

My husband loves cricket. Personally I find a mild eggshell Dulux drying a tad more riveting!

Anyone else listening/watching? Very nail-biting.

I've just turned it on as I was amazed anything could have been nailbiting about this test.
