At the moment, on Day 1 of the Ashes. England are 280-5 with Joe Root scoring the first century of the Ashes with a knock of 134 and he's just gone. Anyone at all gonna be watching this?

I won't watch much as I'm at work, but I will be following!

Amazing from Root, without that partnership we could have been staring at a very poor 1st innings score. At least we've given ourselves a chance now.

My parents had tickets for today's play and are going on Saturday too. Sadly, I'm working so won't be joining them sad.gif They had pictures taken with Vaughan, Gower and McGrath apparently!

England did well today, all the pre-Ashes hope that'd they would be competitive seems to be holding true. The day belonged to Ali though, getting those two crucial wickets. Still think it will end a draw though, especially as the weather for Sunday looks horrendous.

A great performance all round, a really promising start to the series. Joe Root really is a great batsman now, hopefully he can continue to develop in the next few years.

At the end of Day 2.

England on 85-4 and trailing by 481 runs.

Good to see highlights of the Ashes on Channel 5 at least.

What a difference a Test makes with England losing by 405 runs.

It's now 1-1 all.

You gotta fancy Australia to win 4-1.

A very strong morning session for England by bowling Australia out of 60 in their first innings in the fourth test at Trent Bridge, Stuart Broad took a fantastic 8-15 he also become the fifth England bowler to take 300 wickets. It is the shortest first innings in Test history.

England currently 135-3.

If England lose this now from the position they're in, it will be one of sports biggest ever cock-ups!

Australia look shattered of confidence. Guess England will try and build up as big a lead as possible in the morning session and then try and bowl Australia out. Their first innings score was crazy, such a bottle job from their top order batsmen.

Remarkable to watch the Australian collapse this morning, Broad really bought it today!

It's interesting that most of the Australian wickets were caught in the slips. Michael Clarke is so out of nick at the moment, but their middle order looks so weak as well. The Aussies have been awful but England have been brilliant. Broad with the ball, Root with the bat and the fielding throughout has been superb.

England declared on 391-9 with a 331 run lead and now Australia are 105-0. I do miss The Ashes not being on free-to-air live TV. The 2005 Ashes was probably the greatest series with it being on Channel 4.

I was certainly wrong about my prediction of how the Ashes was going to go after the Second Test. I believe England were 66-1 to win 4-1 at the end of the Second Test.

England are on the verge of regaining the Ashes with another fantastic display against Australia with Australia on 241-7 in their second innings and 93 runs behind.

Took a while to break through today, but the collapse eventually came. Should quite easily wrap this up tomorrow morning I'd have thought!
