    Well...that was a day Australia would rather forget.

    All out for 136, with the Poms 3 runs behind with 7 wickets in hand.

    I have to ask if somebody over there forgot to pay the bill for summer, as it seems to have completely bypassed Birmingham.

    Cheers,

    sure... it's the weather that's the problem...

    Well...when the game is being interrupted to the point where they can't actually get in a full day's play, then that is a problem.

    To illustrate the problem, yesterday in Perth the overnight minimum was 13C, and the maximum was 21C with no rain during the day. In Birmingham, it was 5C overnight, and 14C during the day, with multiple interruptions for rain.

    In Perth it's the middle of winter. In Birmingham it's the middle of summer.

    I'm not for a second suggesting that the weather was the problem with the Australian performance. The soft dismissals against a good attack on a - finally - English wicket was the core of their problems.

    Cheers,
    Tim

    England defeat Australia by 8 wickets inside 3 days.

    2 - 1

    Two tests to go.

    For Australia to retain the Ashes, as I understand it we need to win 1 and draw 1. That would give us a drawn series. Ideally we need to win both, to be a definitive result.

    We were thoroughly outplayed in this test.

    Never gonna happen.

    Nope.

    I'm going to break AHL North American Ice Hockey in Australia.

    It's gonna be HUGE!

    It's got blood and fights.

    Underpaid athletes playing for the love of the game in obscure markets.

    A general sense of hopelessness and futility which turns into murderous rage once the puck drops.

    Drunken brawls in the stands.

    Officials ushered out of towns with police escort.

    Delusional die-hard fans with no life and nothing else to live for.

    It's perfect for Australians.

    I have a new mission now.

    I will not fail.

    I cannot fail.

    To be fair, grammar wasn't taught at Australian schools for several decades, it's not our fault!

    Also, we (personal pronoun) got totally smoked in the Ashes, the only good thing was seeing Clarke finally go.
