The Ashes


Second test starts in the middle of the night - best chance for England given it is a day/night match in cool conditions

England's seamers should benefit - let's hope the batters can finally get some big runs.

their bowlers are much quicker than ours - big difference on flat, slow wickets

Getting interesting, but I'd still back the Aussies.

It's the hope that kills you.

Though I sense there was never much more than a bit of hope going into the final day and a little ironic entertainment at the end of the third day's play with the Aussies, having been in a position to enforce the follow-on ( that they didn't I thought more understandable than England's initial decision to bowl first ), then after wickets tumbled having Nathan Lyon come in as a night watchman and wasting time.

James Anderson and Broad are flat track bullies.

If the ball is not swinging,these two cannot take wickets, simple as. Look at the stats, both anderson and broad average under 30 in UK tests, but well over 30 abroad. Yes Anderson and Braod are amazing in UK, where the ball swings, but elsewhere in the world they are toothless.

These two should not be playing in the ashes, we should have played out and out quick bowlers.

I'm not sure flat track bullies is the correct phrasesmilesmile

Name me a fit alternative quick bowler that we have and can select?

Swing bullies ?   

But yes you'ed have to find a few good enough genuine quick bowlers from underneath the Christmas tree before Anderson and Broad wouldn't warrant places. Even if England just had one or two here, they wouldn't be taking these two's places.
