    Ashes coming home?

    Post by Angus on Thu 06 Aug 2015, 10:39 am

    Great opportunity here for England, won the toss and bowling hope they can make the most of it.

    Finn the key for me, Broad now he has stopped bowling consistently short is a quality bowler, Finn when he get's it right like Birmingham is lethal pace, bounce and outswing if he can do it again we should do it, although missing Jimmy could still be crucial the rest of our bowling a bit flakey perhaps.

    An exciting few days ahead, could be a close one, I think we need to do it at Trent Bridge the Oval may suit the Aussies more.

    At 38-7 off 11, I don't think we're missing Jimmy at all!!

    Australia 60 all out

    Broad 8-15 and some outstanding catching

    Fingers crossed that England manage to do better or it's going to be a very short match.

    A few International careers will be over after this including Clarke, no way back from 60 all out for them. We should make it as painful as possible the days McGrath and Warne were very painful for England fans.

    Broad has been consistently good for 2 years in Test Cricket, pity he didn't work out his game 2 or 3 years earlier or he may have ended one of the greats, he always had the ability, even with the slightly late blossoming he has had a very fine career and could end up beating Anderson for test wickets.

    Reuters news agency sets out the facts of the Australian innings.

    Just for once it was our turn, so enjoy . . .

    • The top scorer in Australia's first-innings total of 60
      was "extras" with 14, the first time that has happened in Ashes
      history. Mitchell Johnson made 13 and Michael Clarke 10, the
      only batsmen to get into double figures.
         
    • Australia opener Chris Rogers was dismissed for nought,
      the first time in 46 test innings he had made a duck, the
      longest streak without one at the start of a test career by any
      batsman.
         
    • Australia's first innings was the shortest in test
      history, lasting 18.3 overs. They were only the fourth team to
      be bowled out before lunch on the first day of a test.
         
    • Broad's figures of 8-15 were England's third best ever in
      an Ashes test, behind only Jim Laker's 9-37 and 10-53 at Old
      Trafford in 1956.
           
    • Broad claimed his 300th test wicket by dismissing Rogers
      with the third ball of the match, becoming the fifth England
      bowler to achieve the feat.
         He finished on 307 wickets, level with Fred Trueman and
      behind James Anderson (413), Ian Botham (383) and Bob Willis
      (325).
         
    • Australia's top-four batsmen faced a total of 12 balls
      between them.
         
    • Australia's innings included the earliest fall of the
      fourth, fifth and sixth wickets in test history.


    And this from Antony Green of ABC . . .

    The first test innings in history where the ball by ball summary fits in a tweet -

    I thought it only beat the previous record by 2 balls? That too would fit in a tweet.
