Very very refreshing. Just need to encourage Cook to play more of his natural batting game - at the start of the innings, one attacking batsman is more than enough, and Lyth is rather better at it than Cooky will ever be. Australia have been disappointing at best.

This test series is proving fantastic. Perhaps from a neutral perspective a few more even matches would be better, but I'm loving it at the moment.

I don't know about anyone else, but today's Test is making my work day fly by AND keeping me awake.

I would echo ivohenry's statement, but this just feels like fair reward for the pain of the 90s :twisted:

The whole thing has been pretty amazing. I've been watching the highlights - again!

But, oh dear! What is wrong with Australia?

Um, I work one 60 hour week and I emerge from the darkness to find the Ashes won?! Well done England but, seriously, disappointing it wasn't more competitive...

Amused to hear Phil Tufnell refer to Geoffrey Boycott as "our one and only" on TMS today! Though I can see some similarities…

Having met Boycott during his heyday, I much prefer the EBD version! :lol:

Shane Watson's still acting at Australia's batting comic relief though!
