  5. Must be close to the worst performance by Aussie openers in an Ashes series ever. In 20 innings, Warner, Harris and Bancroft made a total of 197 runs
  6. For me Man of series for Australia: Steve Smith Man of series for England: Ben Stokes, Broad and Archer not far behind Compton-Miller Medal: Steve Smith
  7. Broad gets Warner again. Glad he has had a terrible Ashes.
  8. Looking at the figures, it was actually milder between Christmas and New Year (1987). About 9C here on Christmas Day but 27th-29th December, it was between 13C-14C.
  9. BBC Weather forecast from that day, got to say the news footage of the Christmas Day Serpentine swim, it looks dull. Remember it being mild but the following Christmas of 1988 was milder.
  10. Talk about Root's captaincy, I am not sure Paine is that great a captain. He is diabolical on deciding what to review and he is a wicketkeeper!! When Stokes was flying at Headingley, he was like a rabbit caught in headlights and he puts England in first when he is 2-1 up in the series.
  11. According to today's Times, there is    a black hole in the centre of our solar system....🤨😗

      Maybe that's where the gold bog has gone. Seriously, it's silly season for the rags. But maybe, just maybe...

  12. Warner was averaging 48.2 after the sandpaper Test His average is now 45.72 Steve Smith was averaging 61.38 after the sandpaper Test, he is now averaging 65.57 Maybe England should have looked at footage of Smith's batting against the South African bowlers before ths series because his record against them is nowhere as good as it is against most other teams.
  13. Another Smith 50. In his last 14 Tests against England, including this one, he has scored over 1900 runs!
  14. To put a side in and not bowl them out on the first day and they have scored 250+, is IMO, a poor decision, if there have not been any weather interventions. They didn't help themselves by being sloppy in the field. Some will argue, England shouldn't be bowled out for 280 on that wicket, I would argue if the wicket is that good then why didn't the Aussies bat first?
  15. The widows of Chico and Harpo Marx, both died on 22nd December 2002.
  16. Not sure why the Aussie captain put England in the first place? It was looking like a poor decision at one stage.
  17. You haven't given a frame of reference though. February 2018 was 1.3C below the 1971-2000 average.
  18. I wonder how many realise that winter 1978-79 is the 15th wettest winter on record for England and Wales?
  19. Buttler counterattacking and Leach frustrating the Aussies again
  20. Roy and Overton have been dropped. Sam Curran and Chris Woakes are in
