I hope the series isn't one-sided and that England fights back.

McGrath reaching 500 wickets is truly an outstanding achievement !

lol on the contrary I hope that England get hammered, so they go to Pakistan in November with a negative state of mind.

IMHO Pakistan's middle order is as brittle, so right now I think England is a better team than Pakistan as their bowling is better

England going good... Trescothick missed 100 by 10 runs sad1.gif and Pieterson playing well again...

Comments on which way this will go? No McGrath for Australia. Can England take advantage of this?

Cheers,

Looks like great first days play so far. Pity about Trescothick missing his century to a very poor shot.

Good showing by Flintoff and Pietersen at present, and some great shot s by Flintoff. Australia obviously missing MacGrath.

Hard to say where it will all end up given the great batting collapses of the past.

Well at the end of first day England did very well to reach 407 at RR of 5+. Brett Lee was smashed all round the corner smile1.gif

Lets see if their bowlers can take on from here.

Cheers,

Here in Sydney, normally all cricket matches are shown on Kerry Packer's channel nine TV station.

However for this Ashes series, they opted out of showing it, fearing the matches will be uncompetitive. Hence all the telecast is being done by the government owned SBS station, and no, they wont be showing anything to do with Kerry Packer.

Was a real corker of a ball that one !

I feel Langer was somewhat unlucky with this decision though!

Did that ball remind you of that "ball of the century" of 1993 Ashes when Warne got Mike Gatting out. They keep showing that one on TV in Australia for the last 12 years.

Will be an interesting days play.


Akhtar, Iqbal or anyone from UK

Whoa!!! What a match this is turning out to be. Warnie took 6 but Australia lost 8 wickets today!!! 175-8 at the end of the day and the thorn for Australia is Flintoff. What an all-round performance.

Cheers,

What a performance from Flintoff, notwithstanding that shoulder injury. All those mighty sixes!

Surely England will win from here with Flintoff to be the man of the match!
