So the Ashes started today in Brisbane and whislt I got to see most of the match by livescore Rolling Eyes I was (un)fortunate enough to see Peter Siddle's hat-trick on tv - what a birthday he's having!

England were all out for 260, with Cook and Bell the pick of the bunch and Australia are 25-0 at stumps on the 1st day.  England have got a sh*t load of work to do.

The Ashes - 1st Test - Day 2

Mike Hussey hit an unbeaten 81 to keep Australia in a good position after two days of the first Ashes Test.

England's bowlers did well between lunch and tea at the Gabba, as the hosts slid from 96-1 to 143-5.

But the under-pressure Hussey hit back with Brad Haddin as the Aussies reached 220-5 in reply to England's 260, before rain brought an early finish.

The best bowlers for England were James Anderson (2-40) and Steven Finn (2-61), but Graeme Swann (1-59) struggled.

Ashes Day 4 (sorry, was out day 3 enjoying the sunshine shades )

Ashes: Cook and Strauss hit tons as England fight back

Openers Andrew Strauss and Alastair Cook both hit centuries as England fought back superbly on day four of the first Ashes Test at the Gabba.

England had resumed 202 runs behind on 19-0 with Australia sensing victory.

But Strauss (110) put on 188 with Cook (132 not out) in an English record stand at Brisbane, and Cook then added 121 with Jonathan Trott (54 not out).

The tourists went to stumps on 309-1 and lead the Aussies by 88 runs, with the draw looking the likely outcome.

I didn't think it possible after days 1 and 2 but great stuff today by Strauss and Cook clap  Trott not doing badly either yes

So England have put the Aussies back into bat, they are currently 68-1 with Ponting and Watson batting.  Their target is 297 with about 25 overs left.  Should I be concerned? Think

yes

Alastair Cook and Jonathan Trott set a series of records as England hit an extraordinary 517-1 on the final day of the first Ashes Test before declaring.

The match finished in an expected draw, Australia replying with 107-1 having been set 297 to win from 41 overs.

Cook's 235 not out was the sixth best Ashes score by an Englishman and he also surpassed Sir Don Bradman for the highest Test score at the Gabba.

Cook and Trott (135no) put on 329, the ninth highest England stand in history.

Australia ended a tough last couple of days on a positive note with Ricky Ponting hitting 51 not out and Shane Watson unbeaten on 41, but England will hope to take more confidence with them to the second Test at Adelaide.   http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport2/hi/cricket/9236435.stm

Didn't really agree with the declaration to be honest. No chance of winning or losing and it just let the Aussies finish on a positive and Ponting and Watson batted themselves into some form. Should have kept batting all day to run their bowlers into the ground and put 650 on the board, and keep our bowlers fresh IMO.

It was a bit pointless really - maybe they should have just seen what score they could have got to before dropping another wicket.  Apparently Mitchell Johnson had a really bad day at the office - wonder if we'll see him without his Movember tash in Adelaide, if at all?
