      At one point we had five bowled out for seven.  :D

      Australia bowled well, now their batting good too. A bit of a humiliating day for England, the Aussies have their tails up and can taste blood.

      Probably just what the series needs as a spectacle Aussies going 1 up

      I have a nagging feeling mate that they'll have the 'bit between their teeth' now, I hope England don't collapse but the Aussie's aren't going to make it easy from here on in, they've got the start they desperately needed. I'd like to see the p.rick Johnson go back to his relatively normal erratic bowling as today he was on fire. I remember all the hype the Aussie's pumped up about him, and  :lmao: my @rse off when he first started bowling against England - he was awful. But from what we've seen today, this must be what all that hype was about, Lyon did well too and England just collapsed.  :( Fair play to the convicts.

      Big worries for England. They were pretty poor in the summer but got away with it as Australia were even worse. Could be completely different if the Aussies get the momentum from winning this test (which surely they will do unless it rains).

      Should at least be an interesting series at least!

      Back to the bad old days, with another spectacular batting collapse, bring back Geoff Boycott!

      Watched a bit back today.. How Lyon took two on that wicket beggars belief..
      He doesn't turn it so it's not going to beat the bat, bowling round the wicket, a little extra bounce maybe but get forward to him to counter the bounce as it won't turn past the bat.

      This test is gone, but we need to win some second innings battles to take something into the second test

      From 2-82 to 8-91 I think, what a monumental batting collapse and I thought our batting line up was sh*t. Hope we smash a lead of 400+ by the end of the day, knock your lads off again, cheaply and have a rest day on the 5th. Stay away rain, that's the only way The Poms have got a chance.

      Hundred up for Warner. Terrific innings.

      Graeme Swann getting pumped. Lovely to see.

      Clarke and Warner tons, 500+ lead.

      Perfect start to the series. Now to finish you lot off by 300!

      Don't know mate but in my opinion the Australians were very unlucky in England when they lost the Ashes.

      I think you'll go close. Perth, Melbourne, Brisbane are a lock for us. Sydney, with Swann, is closer and Adelaide is a bit of a mixed ground. A lot of early momentum is key to that test.

      Perth I'm worried about I'll be honest.. The others will be good even wickets I think.

      England need to bounce back next test, can't afford to be 2 down

      Crouchie, you like a bet don't you?
      Ever bet on cricket? It's one of my preferred sports to bet on, if you know the game you have a chance.

      This test I've dabbled like this.

      I set a little pot and try to increase it

      Aussie first innings under 300

      Used that to bet on

      Harris top wicket taker first innings with Johnson as a back up

      Then I've gone with the Johnson money on

      Warner 50

      Then with that I went

      Clarke 100 when he was on 19

      With that little pot I've gone before day 4 on

      England bowled out for under 291

      Not massive amounts, I started with 20 and stand at 80 now
      I just finds it increases interest in little sections , when it's over here and I can watch it more in depth I have other little ones going on during play

      Well I'm all in now mate..

      Stand to lose 80 or win 210 depending on today..

      I'm an Aussie for the day.. Under 291 please big Mitch  ;D

      I just find it increases the interest mate.. I love my cricket and always back myself to see little bits to win on.

      Lose and it's no biggy though

      Nice one PD!

      I think there's no chance our top wicket taker will be anyone other than Harris or Johnson but Harris may be rested for Adelaide so i'd have gone for Johnson.

      Aussies 1-0 in the series. 300 run win. Too, too easy.

      Well done Aussies

      England got a lot of work to do before the second test.

      Not too comfortable with how The Aussies conducted themselves in the last half hour there, no need for it.

      Hoping for a great series

      I turned off by then  ;D

      What did they do?

      I know Mitch Johnson's a jumped up little c*nt, wouldn't surprise me if he was involved with this kind of conduct. Classless w@nker.

      They were all into Anderson, don't get me wrong I like tough cricket but it seemed a little unsavory.. Clarke seemed a little too much and some foreign commentators were saying stuff was being thrown around about hurting him, breaking fingers and over bumping his head.. Off the stump mike

      I like funny sledging, not too keen on telling players you're gonna hurt them.. Especially when you are so dominant.

      Just seen that Clarke was telling Anderson they were gonna break his arm..

      Now I actually love Aussie cricket, I love the ashes, I grew up with the great Aussie side and couldn't help but love them and have followed their cricket all my life as I do with England. Cricket is a hard sport but there is a line and telling a no.11 that you're gonna break his arm when you have a near on 400 lead?
      I've lost a lot of respect for Pup there.

      Win and win well.. Smashing England by that many was enough of a statement, tell them you are gonna do it again and again, I even like the bit where Warner was taking the piss out of Trott's bottle to the short stuff but threatening to break a no.11s arm at that point?

      Take a look in the mirror pup


      The Aussies were great in this match, fully fully deserved win. Well in lads
