Ha there was a lunch interval sketch of Botham and Athers going around asking people...'How do you get Steven Smith out?" - quite funny.

Keep the Ashes warm for us xx

Yeh, I think he may be slightly regretting that one right now. Especially when they reckon it's gonna get up to 40 degrees tomorrow. Should be good fun fielding in that.

Also I've been listening to the entire test on ABC Grandstand, first time and it's been a wonderful experience.

No fucking morons.

I've always been a fan of grandstand. I'm finding the free to air tv coverage for cricket to be similar to NRL, where they have these legends of the game who are too busy trying to show off their tactical nouse, that commentate the game itself.

They standard of commentry is pretty low these days, and it was never a high bar to begin with. Still, I've enjoyed the test so far.
