    So Starc has not been picked. I know I'm a bit out of all the info but is there a reason for this one?

    His record against top 6 batsmen has been really poor last couple of years - stats flattered by cleaning up the tail. Warney has been highly critical of him for quite a while re this

    Ok, thanks. I just wasn't sure about a 150 k swinging bowler being left out. Seems like he gives away a lot of runs.

    I thought Peter Siddle was about 50!

    Which reminds me of an hilarious exchange with my American wife when my son was about 8yo and we took him to get kitted out with his cricket gear at Pawley's for his first season ... after a bat pads, gloves, whites, keepers gloves etc ... I grapped a box and handed it to her and moved on ... back in the car on the way home ... the young bloke had all the gear out on the back seat and the missus said pass me the box .. looked at it for a minute .. confused ... and asked what is this for ... I said he slips it down his pants to protect his crown jewels ... The look on her face .. and the immediate exclaimation of "What the hell game have you signed him up for that requires an 8yo to protect his genatalia' .... remains one of the funniest I can recall .... in the end it was a near run thing that he played his first game ...

    We they better get onto it then!

    I think I'd rather have seen a series of Eng v the good guys (NZ) at the moment, to be honest.

    Apparently they are coming here at the end of the year but there is talk of them resting half their side

    ^ Boo!

    Gawd I can't stand the barmy army. Yeah y'all so tough with your.... sing songs. As intimidating as your pot bellies and sunburns. Of course as soon as any aussie cricketer turns to face you' you all grab you paraphernalia and beg for an autograph.

    Joe root somehow seems offended about having to shake hands while at the same time begging for Aust to slip up so he can scream 'see, they say bad things'. There's some irony being missed over there.

    Is Starc definitely out ?? I though he was in a battle with Hazlewood and P Siddy for 3rd pace spot. I would have though that Starc, Cummins and Hazlewood were locks - but looks like Pattison has jumped the queue. I think Hazlewood should play so maybe Starc does sit out. Your are right KE, his bowling over the summer with the red ball was poor - although he did finish with a couple of Michelle's against the Sri Lankans.

    We aren't going to have a pace allrounder like the poms have with Stokes (they can't pick Marsh surely), so not sure who the 5th bowling option will likely be - does that give Marnus the edge as the only other all rounder ??

    Or do they go old school and run with 5 outright bowlers and give Starc a reprieve ?? is our batting strong enough to carry the extra bowler ?? harris, wade, labuschagne battling it out for the last 1 or 2 batting spots. I think 10 of the 11 will be

    Bancroft
    Warner
    Smith
    Khawaja
    Wade
    Paine
    Cummins
    Pattison
    Hazlewood
    Lyon

    then either Starc or Labuschagne

    We'll know later tonight. Looking forward to it. Poms have a great record at Edgbaston so it'd be great to start with a win

    You boys having a hit, no Starc or Hazelwood

    2 of the weakest batting lineups I’ve seen in an Ashes series, Head, Wade, Paine doesn’t scare you from 5 down and not many big names for the Poms these days

    Starc I get but Hazlewood is a mystery - they rested him from the World Cup for this?

    Oh well with our order at least we will see how the bowlers go later tonight...

    What a woeful use of reviews from England, and what a woeful innings from Warner

    Gee this is pretty ordinary - not the most deadly bowling, just some poor cricket shots. No Anderson either and we still can't crack 250

    Dear oh dear, what a crap total to wake up to.

    I hate reading about dud lbw decisions. (Dud reviews are bad enough) but the Umpire has to be CERTAIN the ball would have hit the stumps, not half assed, and by the time they to umpire test matches, they should not be calling balls that show to be just grazing the stumps.

    8-154. That a lot of contract dollars for stuff all runs

    Khawaja for me is performing as expected, his tests scores this year is one century and a whole bunch of rubbish. fmd, isn't first drop supposed to be your best batsman? Talk about a lottery ticket.

    8-208

    Bowlers who get over 30 runs should get a proportion of the top order batsmen's test match payments if those batsmen fail.

    Conversely, batsmen should never get bowlers wages as bowlers are awesome.

    from ge, aged 9

    ergo; siddle gets $$$$

    wow

    Smith swinging and hitting everything

    He's 131 and Aust are 9-263!

    Smith takes one big swing too many and is bowled for a great 144. As soon as he's bowled he turns and runs off the field to a chorus of classless boo's from the eternally moronic, eventually replaced by applause. His running is to ensure Australia get at least 2 overs in tonight.

    All out 284.

    So as I started to stream the game, the runs dry up and Aust get out. Sorry.
