  • Always a silver lining!

  • i wouldn't be that pessimistic. pissing down with rain, no waca test and possibly an extra day/nighter - i reckon the poms have a better chance than they had three or so months ago.

    i fucken hope not, though.

  • Jimmy out the first test. There goes our hopes.

  • Not really, they're saying he was fit but getting ready for Adelaide and the pink ball over what will be a rain affected game is the right call

    And thank fuck they've picked Pope over Bairstow

  • Are there any free highlights or am I going to have to pony up for a BT sport pass?

  • Think BT have some stuff on Youtube from 2pm

  • I'm getting nasty flashbacks to 2006 & Harmison's first ball wide :(

  • Which bowler do people think will miss out from the squad of 12? I'm hoping its not Woakes, but slightly worried it will be... I guess if the rain is as bad as forecast Leach might be the one...

  • I suspect it will be Leach. Would be surprised if it was Woakes, as there is no Anderson, and he strengthens the batting. Wood will play for pace, so if Leach does play it is between Broad and Robinson. A bit may well depend on how much Stokes can bowl as well I guess

  • Or BT sport? (both sans Vaughan)

  • Weather looks dreadful, they might get some play in the morning but the afternoon/evening sessions look doubtful

  • Excited. England have a real chance with dodgy weather and 2 x day/night games.

  • Sounds like we'll be lucky to get a result in brizzy

  • England’s best chance is lots of bad weather and then two day-nighters.

    I still think Aus win 3-1.

  • Leach and Robinson dropping Broad would give a rounded attack in these conditions.
    Also a chance of a key Stokes/Leach partnership with the bat

  • Anybody know how I can watch in America (or at least listen)?

    Happy with an illegal stream.

  • 2:1 to the uncouth cheating bogans, both teams ripped through for bugger all at some point, some heroics for a drawn test from England.
    at least one bogan banned for dick picks or some other ‘lads bantz’ type behaviour.

    would love to be wrong. got some skippy memes in the wings.

  • Not sure if you can VPN it, but are doing a pass for $19.99 for all 5 tests -

    BT Sport pass sorted, week off work, food and drinks ready. Shame the weather looks shit.

  • Good luck, my pommie friends.

  • You racists

  • Just kidding

  • Looks like Harmy has been eating a pie for every time he's been asked about the one he bowled at the Gabba in '06...

  • Leaving broad out is insanity.
