• The Ashes 2019

    Hi everyone,

    It seems like Wimbledon and the Cricket World Cup have only just finished and now here we are, The Ashes!

    So here's a place to share all things cricket

    What're your predictions - will England win the Ashes trophy back?
    Should England have included Archer in the team?

  • GREAT start by England! I did ruin it by turnong off TMS and putting the TV on. I've fixed that now though

  • Smith's century yesterday was a teeeeny bit frustrating

    Don't like hearing the crowds booing though.
    Some great batting

    Let's see what happens on day 2

  • I was so frustrated how we let them off for <200 for 8 to a decent score. Smiths innings was brilliant - but I loved the booing and cries of cheat. It’s an ashes game and I don’t mind getting into the oppos head if we can. In time I’ll forgive him!

    Burns innings yesterday was equally as good. Would like to see us build a decent lead today then really go at the Aussies with our bowlers.

  • It's so close, and so much in the balance... I'm the preacher in church tomorrow, people will notice if I check the score. I guess I could pray for a rain-delayed start, but that seems a bit selfish...

  • I’ve just watched Steve Smith take a full hit to the side of the head from Stokes delivery - his helmet saved him from serious injury.

  • Is it just me or based off this BBC article are most of our hopes for winning the next test actually down to Australia making some sort of mistake, more than England putting in a strong performance?

    Also hoping the weather is OK as currently Weds is forecast to be stormy in a lot of places

  • Owch... draw... thank you Broad for saving us

    Here's hoping we can win the next test (loss, to draw, maybe means a win is next?) and then come back fighting in the 4th

    such a rollercoaster.

    Can you believe we decided not to bother recording Sunday's cricket (we were out all day)

    Incredible from Stokes

  • Hoping the Burns/Root partnership may give us half a chance. Fingers and toes crossed.

    Can't bear to watch...
