    100 @ Puma:
    That’s good mate, doing well this side too. Enjoy watching the game, not able to here am just listening on the radio but as tense as it is can’t hang around much longer indoors, jobs to do outside am afraid, have to make hay while the sun is shining :-) will try pop in now and then to hear what’s happening, may just be lucky to catch the end

    99 @ Bullscot:
    Weather has been great for this test. How is your weather up in Scotland BS?

    Pity that you don’t get the cricket on tv there or do you? Can you get it on sky?

  • 103

    101 @ Bullscot:
    The end will come real quick after they come out after lunch. Stay tuned to your radio! :)

  • 104

    Play has resumed after lunch, score card is up to date until lunch. Aus still 291/9

  • 105

    102 @ Puma:
    Weather brilliant here today Puma warm with some cloud and lots of sun. The cricket is on Sky which I don’t have, radio station am picking up on is through the TV.

  • 106

    First run after lunch, Aus need 19 to win now 292/9

  • 107

    Swann bowls there is an appeal as batsmen gets an inside edge sounds like it was amazing it didn’t get him out, went for 3 runs.
    Aus 295/9 still need 16, really need to tear myself away from here…edge of the seat stuff

  • 108

    ENGLAND WIN BY 14 RUNS!!!

  • 109

    Anderson takes the last wicket, that’s his 10th victim of the test. Haddin got a fine edge that was caught by ‘keeper Prior, umpire Dar gave it not out, England appealed and TV umpire overruled as HOT SPOT showed there was an edge by Haddin. So for all the doubters out there, technology can and does make a difference, its not always perfect but surely its far better than not having any.

    Well done England good win to go 1-0 up in the series.

  • 111

    Sound like Anderson will be man of the match

  • 112

    Well done England, I am afraid I went off to watch Chris Froome power up Ventoux. Brilliant ride by him, really taught Quintana a lesson, and he gains another minute and a half on his nearest rival Mollema. A great final week in store.

    England struggled a lot harder than I thought they would, what with the Aussies being in such disarray. Well done to them, but a great fight by the Aussies, and I think this tour is far from over. Looking forward to Test 2 on Thursday!

    Hi GBS thanks for tidying this one, been in and out this weekend, should really have been out doors working as it was when the game ended so just came in a few minutes after the last wicket fell and just had to quickly post it, just sat down now to finalize it and thanks to you its done Approve
