The bowlers are doing so well it’s like they were on strike in Adelaide and forgot to inform the media.
It seemed that Strauss stopped captaining early on and rang the party organisers to move it to Melbourne.
Who will retain the ashes
England. Australia can’t keep this up. Mitchell is too Mitchell to be able to keep this up, and the rest seem to need a touch of Mitchell to get them started.
Play of the day
My friend Ruth claims she saw the nutsack of the streaker. If she did she saw what looked like two very white balls. Personally I thought the streaker was great because he found a way to trip himself up with his own pants before the security even got to him.
Testicular moment of the day
I suppose that goes to the streaker. Although Mike Hussey was pretty good too.
Working class moment of the day
People will remember that Chris Tremlett took a five wicket haul at the WACA. They will also remember that England lost and then they’ll sigh.
Weird factoid of the day
Hussey has now made 19 straight 50s in this ashes series. Maybe more.
