It is.

Not behind the bowler’s arm, but not bad. Glorious day here. Took me a few minutes to realise they’d renamed the stand and find my seat.


Hold that seat for me, I’ll be there next year.

If you’re at Headingley I’ll buy you a beer or two.

I’ve got to try and make sure I get a seat first, apparently not that easy.

Nope, the Ashes sell out fast.

I’m willing to alter my trip to suit whatever tickets I can get at any venue.

The tickets go faster than Barry Allen on greased lightning - I would certainly register with all grounds or see if they can be purchased in Australia

I just Googled it and there’s nothing yet, there seems to be a few sharks that want a deposit based on a promise and a waiting list.

Great waste of a review, middle stump halfway up.

Yep, and he must have known he didn’t hit it. Interesting first hour, bowlers looked very threatening for the first 6 overs, then until Young missed a straight one it all looked innocuous. I’m hoping Williamson gets his eye in, on song he’s a joy to watch, and apart from one glorious drive he’s been pretty out of touch.

Overton is looking very military medium at the moment, hope he gets his rhythm.

Broady approaching 550 test wickets, shame he won’t topple Glen McG for all-time 5th spot this series, but it’s a matter of time :+1:

I loved the look of confusion on Leach’s face when his teammates mobbed him for Nicholls’s wicket. It flew across in front of me to Lees and I still wasn’t sure what I was watching.


Crazy wicket! Just wondering, assume not out if it had glanced the Ump?

My understanding is a glance off the ump would still be out. Could be wrong.

I mentioned this in the make you feel old thread. I’m watching Michael Bracewell bat at Headingley. I’ve just checked cricinfo, it was 1986 I saw his uncle John play in the Lords Test, over 4 years before Michael was born.


Looks like my last post on this thread has proved to be all too prophetic…

England batting like they have a train to catch later. Not sure there are any.

Didn’t England watch the kiwi innings? Hang in there then when the ball goes soft cash in/ play Bazball. The innings is only 25 overs old at the mo. Vic Marks " Moving away from total calamity and heading to mediocrity" Ouch!
