Course we do!  Only country ever to win a football, rugby union and cricket World Cup. We are an elite nation in loads of women’s sports. We are only usually only behind giants like USA

I'm glad I stayed up for that, almost went to bed an hour and a half or so ago. 3.15 am here

My tuppence worth on the Botham argument. He won cricket matches single handedly, often against the odds against our greatest rival, just when we needed him. He would feature in most people’s greatest

Shades of Brisbane 2006 as the first ball goes for a wide. England v Australia is always a cracking battle.

May the best team win.

Remember it well, There were a few hundred Rovers fans crammed into a sports bar in Amsterdam( We were playing Sparta Rotterdam the following day) all geared up for the start of the ashes and Harmison fired into Flintoff's hands at second slip. Then when Anderson came onto ball he was roundly Booed.

Good times! I remember how difficult it was to find somewhere that a) was showing it, and B) was going to open late. Within a couple of hours I think everyone was resigned to it being a punishing series....

Cook gone :(

The Aussie bowling attack looks pretty promising with plenty of youth and pace in there though obviously inexperienced. Clarke is one of the best batsmen in the world right now but the rest of the batting order doesn't look that dynamic.

Crucial wicket taken shortly after lunch keeping this day one interesting.

You must be joking. England to win - especially against this lot.

Typically poor first-day batting effort by our lot today. Why do we always start Test series so badly ?

Bet theres some worried folk with tickets for Saturday now...Sundays already a write off I reckon.

Really important 1st hour tomorrow, if the Aussies survive for no more wickets lost it could be a long slog of a day in the field for England, hope Broad is fit to bowl too.

I think we all expected something like that. Australia has a good fast bowling attack but one Test quality batsman. The rest are rubbish.

On paper England should win every test by about 200 runs.

The first hour will probably decide the outcome of the match. If England can strike in the first hour and overall bowl them out relatively cheaply then they should be favorites with Swann bowling on a really crumbly pitch on day 3/4. If Australia can survive until the cloud cover clears and the sun is out then they still have the opportunity to put up some runs, though is that realistic at all with that batting lineup?

England have to be favorites to win.

Wish you wouldn't do that.
