See the Aussie score yesterday in the game they had amongst themselves?

20 wickets fell for 225 runs.

Could be a low scoring Ashes series!

Unless Joe Root knows something we don’t, I can’t fathom why we batted and said so at the toss. Surely the pitch will dry out over the 4 days with current weather conditions and the best time to bowl was always going to be the first hour. That should not to excuse some abysmal shots.

I just read on bbc website that England did not once lose 10 wickets in a session at any time between 1938 and 2016. But today was the fourth time since then. Pretty amazing.

Not sure why we needed two spinners on that pitch, especially when Root and Denly bowl spin as well.

They'd better bat properly tomorrow. I want a full day on Friday as I'm going to see The Smyths at the 100 Club in the evening.

More like it this morning.

Will Leach manage to get past Tudor?

Pretty wide for Burns to be nibbling at it though.

This sounds like a good day (although Root will need to pull his finger out). Never seen them but heard good reports. Let's hope they don't recreate Guildhall '86!!

Every credit to Ireland. They deserve this and in my view should now be a fully fledged test playing nation.

This is why we love sport. It can be so predictable but every now and then something like this comes along.
