    It's a bit like the people constantly talking down county cricket. Numbers attending matches in all forms are on the up yet it's supposedly in crisis and nobody wants to watch or play it. Statements are made that sound like they could be true in the modern world, but are in fact the opposite of the truth.

    Likewise the IPL is only really stealing test players from the mess that is West Indies cricket, despite the fact that many players earn more playing it than they do in a whole year playing for their countries. Sounds like it could, or even should, be true, but isn't.

    This might be a silly question. But why does Scotland have its own national team but wales is rolled into the England team?

    Teaboy It definitely looks brighter over there..

    Aussies batting like the fuckwits they are. Not the strongest England attack playing today as well. 90 - 5 and every wicket has been a gift so far.

    Not the strongest Aus team by the looks of it either. What exactly is the point of this series? Could have given Pakistan a third test instead. England already play Australia too much, imo.

    Money.

    England, Oz and India have to keep playing each other all the time and fuck all the other countries. Same reason the WC has been shrunk.

    Or more accurately, money in the short term. In the long term, I would argue that stifling world growth reduces money.

    I genuinely don't give a shit who wins this.

    I couldn't agree more. The greed of the respective cricket boards at India, England and Australia is in danger of doing real damage to the international game when it should be at the start of something great.

    Beyond England keeping momemntum up and into next year for the World Cup neither do I. It used to be special playing the aussies (even if they did dick us all the time) now its just boring. Pakistan would have been much more fun.

    Some decent bowling in spells but a pretty dreary game. On a decent pitch both team's batting was shite.

    Considering how many Oz players are injured or shamed I reckon they'll see anything else but 5 - 0 as a decent result I expect. That Kane Richardson looked garbage.

    Aussie second string bowlers are going round the park again. Further underlining the pointlessness of this series.

    That awkward moment when your ODI team outscores your test team.

    Well top performance. Roy, Bairstow, Hales must be best opening triplet in the world ATM.

    And now England's women are following suit with an equally lacklustre performance...

    Barely averaging 11 an over right now. Disgraceful.
