    Are any English enjoying the Headingley test as much as I am?

    Anyone watching the last ashes test? Good start for England... Interesting pitch.

    Yeah I'm watching it on the exquisitely dry and self-deprecating Guardian over-by-over coverage. Very good start by England, and Johnson is doing in this England Ashes series what Gillespie did in the last one. It's terrible for us because he's a far better bowler than that. He's actually our only remaining match-winning bowler. Not anymore.

    And that wicket was probably your fault Noigmn.

    i wish England wins the ashes. not because i like the england team more.
    they lost so bad the last time, 5/0 they gave cricket a bad name.
    and no one likes to watch any sport if it is only 1 sided.

    Yeh, our bowlers aren't giving them anything to think about. I think the wickets will come when England gets bored and starts playing stupid shots for entertainment.

    We only need a draw, but I'd prefer a win.

    If there's one thing my dad drilled into me when I was growing up it's that (when it comes to the cricket) you never feel sorry for the poms. When they're down the only reason you take your foot off their throats is to dig it into their ribs a few times. I think Botham may have had a bit to do with that but honestly I'm not too sure. He mightve been brought up that way himself by parents who were still smarting from Bodyline.

    No sympathy here. It seems there's always some way to bend the rules. Will be happy to beat them, especially after all the talk early in the series.

    I love cricket - in all its forms. It was a lot easier watching it when I lived in India. It's SO much fun! I also loved that you could stop random people on the street and ask them what the score was and they would gladly share There would be people gathered around little shopkeepers listening to a lone radio with the commentary on.

    I used to stream the world cup matches online - should look into streaming more. T20 is okay, I like one days the best (players actually get to settle in and show their form). Tests are great too for just admiring a player's ability and stamina but 5 days is a long time for any game, I have to confess, even for a purist.

    Yeah India is an awesome place to be when the cricket's on. I was there for a world cup and it was just about all anyone was talking about. India played Pakistan for one of the matches and the streets were basically deserted. Indian streets, deserted. When India won that match the entire city celebrated long into the night - fireworks and all.
