We were 8-122 at one stage in the 1st innings. To end up winning by 251 is incredible.

Steve Smith - the second best test batsman in the world of all time. Only Sir Donald George Bradman was better.

Australia coach Justin Langer has confirmed the selection of Josh Hazlewood as the replacement for the rested James Pattinson in the second Test after a first day of the match that was lost to rain.

The Lord's Test is now a four-day Test.

We did a tour of Lords - stood out on that balcony. Apparently they don't usually let you do it, but there were only about 5 of us so they did it. also a walk through the inside rooms - awesome.

Absolutely brilliant start by both sides.
I turned the idiot box on and both sides were up in the 500 odd run scores:banghead:
Rain and more rain I guess.

Australia won the toss and elected to bowl.

Poms are 6 - 156.

Good start by the Aussies! :)
I still don’t want England getting 250. Bairstow and Woakes can be dangerous.

We need to break this 27 run partnership.

Earlier on Paine and Khawaja dropped two catches we should’ve taken off Siddle’ bowling.
