      Well played Cook. 

      Quote
      Alastair Cook is the first England opener to carry his bat since Michael Atherton at Christchurch in 1997
      He is the first opener to carry his bat in an Ashes Test since Geoffrey Boycott at Perth in 1979
      He is the first opener to carry his bat in a Test at the MCG
      His 244 not out is the highest score by an opener carrying his bat, beating New Zealander Glenn Turner's unbeaten 223 in 1972

      Australia racking up the runs pretty quick now though - England putting all their eggs in the basket that this ball is going to swing.

      If you can't take 20 wickets you can't win test matches.

      Curran looks alright as a support bowler to Anderson and Broad but have you lot got no spinners at all? Ali has been custard. And he can't bat.

      Hes a gpod player Ali having a bad series, but he is a second spinner whos value is in his all round game. He has won England games with bat and ball in the past. Some times with one man shows.

      But yeah England have been blinded by his success in to thinking they can go away from home and use him as the only spinner.

      Its a far cry from the days we used to create dry pitches for home ashes series so Swann could blow you lot away. Swann or someone like that might have won us a game but theres nothing coming through in England except a few one day leggies.

      As for this game Australia gave England a chance with these conditions of at least not losing, but why on earth would any groundsman want to force that pitch on the paying public?

      Good last 10 balls for Australia - 2 wickets.  England going to be struggling to make 300 here 1st innings.

      The tail is wagging!

      Not arsed if Tom Curran can bowl if he can come in and hit a 38.

      England in danger now of setting a competitive first innings score.

      F**k predicted 5-0 and my home town pitch let us f**king down. Anyway get the f**k in Aussies, brilliant series win. Got to give a shout out to Joe Root. Unbelievable to go out there and bat as long as he did when he was obviously suffering heavily.
