    Worth adding that the umpire really should've spotted that, it was a big no ball.....begs the question, are umpires getting too 'comfortable' with DRS?

     

    Well the bowlers certainly are. As they are not being called for no-balls so often and they get away with transgressing, they don't get to correct a bad habit. If they are that close to the line all the time, and Wood certainly is, go back a couple of feet.

    Funny to read comments of 'careless' and 'sloppy' when the aggressive style of play was called for on a number of occasions in the past when such positive match positions were wasted due to slow scori

    in all the doom and gloom for the aussies, there is one glimmer of hope....             ...in the form of a promising young batsman who top scored for them.....goes by the name of Extras .....l

    You're right there, Knocks....Poor discipline as I posted earlier...........

    Still, on the positive, England are on the verge of regaining the Ashes, something I honestly didn't expect :)

    England have got a lot to thank Broad. Broad has already twice, won an Ashes series for England through his bowling.

    He did it at the Oval in 2009, destroying the Aussies first innings by taking a 5 wicket haul and ripping through the top and middle order. Man of the Match. Ashes regained.

    He did it at Durham in 2013, although the Ashes were retained, the Aussies could still level the series and the Aussies were closing in on the target, then he produces a spell that seals the series for England. He got 11 wickets in that game. Man of the Match.

    Surely it is going to be a hat trick for Broad, Ashes regained, Man of the Match?

    Well, brillant performance. A day when England regain the Ashes after battering a mentally weak Australian side who have capitulated under conditions that AREN'T flat. Notice. The only properly flat wicket we have had this summer - Lords. The Aussies cruised it. It was slow and low at Cardiff with reverse swing, Edgbaston and Trent Bridge have provided swing and seam and Australia have literally fallen apart. 60 all out and some of the dismissals in this series have been FAR worse, than anything did down under. 

     

    I'd also just like to point one thing out, which to me, is the most positive thing of the summer. Look where the wickets have come from... Anderson....6 for Finn...5 for Stokes...8-15 for Broad. Wickets all over the place from ALL the bowlers. Wood bowled excellently at Cardiff... that's very exciting for me. Just one thing on the batting, although he's barely turned his arm over all summer, Ali's contribution down the order with the bat have been superb. That partnership at Edgbaston saved England's bacon in mid-collapse...the same yesterday.. etc.

    This series reminds me of what happened last year with India. They thumped England at Lords and England were embarrassing. India then totally capitulated and in the final two tests were embarrassing and it was all over quickly.

    The same thing has happened in this series although England won the first Test. Australia were lucky not to lose last both Tests within two days.

    I wonder how these early finishes to these Ashes Test matches are costing the board? Not one Test has lasted into the 5th day, only Lords went into the Sunday. Edgbaston and Trent Bridge were close to finishing in two days. Combined they lasted 5 days.

    What a shame.

     

    Aus lost a day of practice to the rain, then their 2nd string bowling got thrashed around Northampton for nearly 400 in a day before Northants 2nd string attack saw off the majority of the Test top order in no time!

    30 years ago this day since this Ashes Test at Edgbaston. Remember Robinson and Gower slaughtering the Aussies bowlers on the Saturday, scoring well over 300 with a 300 or so partnership. Botham coming in and hitting his first ball for 6! Then Ellison causing a collapse on the 4th evening. Rain threatening to wash out the final day but it finally clear. A stubborn partnership before Phillips falls to a freakish dismissal when he hits the ball into Lamb's foot and Gower capturing on rebound. England won by an innings
