Not long now before the Ashes starts. Exciting stuff !
As I indicated  in another thread, it's good in a way, I do'nt have Sky/BTW sports,  or whatever  its on, otherwise I would be glued ..all day...even in this weather.
As a Glamorgan fan and member ,obviously  love to see Marnus L & Michael N, doing well,but NOT ending up on the winning side...difficult one!
Aussies,  superb against India, who in turn were not that great.
The Ashes will be very intresting,  but the key is how England's top order cope with Cummins, Starc and Boland.
Ducket has done well, but now will face the biggest test of his career.Likewise , Crawley ,who , many will will say, is lucky to be there.
What England cannot afford ,is the middle order exposed too soon. 
The other thing is the Aussies have a top spinner in Lyons,  while England haven't 
I stood yer on tanner bank

Good summation pimp. Neither side have top opening pairs in fairness. Kawaga has never really liked the moving ball in the UK & Broad has usually got Warner's number. You have missed out Hazelwood from your quickies so they have an interesting selection dilemma. I have a feeling that if Hazelwood is deemed ready he will replace Starc who can be a little wayward. The huge battle for me is at 4/5 Root & Brook against Smith & Head. 

England's all out attacking mindset will get its biggest test for sure against a top class bowling attack. It should be a belter of a series.

Yeah looking forward to this one. Last time the Aussies toured we drew 2-2 & it's hard to argue that we're not in a better place as a team.

First test is crucial & I hope Leach's injury doesn't prove to be the deciding factor.

If Leach's probable replacement - Moen Ali - is mentally in the right place he could well do the job of closing up one end. There is no doubt that the Aussies will look to get after the English spinner as with Broad, Anderson & the suspect bowling fitness of Stokes we are struggling to bowl long days under pressure. 

I really think Brook could be the star of this series - every test innings I have seen him play so far he has excelled. Despite their top class bowling line up they do have a habit of imploding when put under pressure as they did against Stokes & Leach in the previous series in the UK.

Tough weekend to get motivated for work in the garden - golden rule - get it done early. Test starts around 1100 hours with coverage of the US Open starting at 1500 hours. Decisions, decisions.......

What an intriguing  first day's play. Tone set, with four from first ball !
It's the best I  have seen Crawley batting, and Bairstow gave great support  to the absolutely  amazing Joe Root. Now the burden of captaincy  has been lifted, he has excelled again..what a player !
Credit to the Aussies,  who kept battling away,despite not bowling at their best. Lyon, is a class bowler, and despite  having more stick than usual, had his rewards.
Several questions  remai n however.
1) We don't enough  about tue pitch  until Australia  bat( or continue to ), and was therefore was it wise for Stokes to declare with Root going well
2) If England do'nt get early wickets,  you have Anderson, and Robinson, coming back from injury concerns,  and Stokes not bowled for ages 
3):Bazball is great, and it certainly  unsettled  the Aussies,,,BUT,  a few English batsmen got themselves  out by rash shots. If this hadn't  happened,  they could have batted Australia,  out if the game. 
Its a conundrum. 

Anyway will be interested to learn the opinion of GPR...who was a real proper cricketer, and playing to a really high standard. 
What a contrast to the average club player like  meLOL !
I love cricket however, and have been a Glam member  for some years
My passion for Scarlets is obviously paramount, but cricket, not to far behind
