Re: The Ashes 2013

England unchanged, but Aust went for three. Warner in for Hughes, Lion for Agar and Starc for Pattinson, with the last the only forced change if I heard the commentators correctly.

Aust 3/200 at the moment. Missed Watson and Khawaja's wickets. Heard that Khawaja might have been dudded by the third umpire, which is unfortunate. Saw Rogers get lbw and surprised he didn't walk immediately and thought they would waste a DRS, but Clarke sent him on his way thankfully. Where Khawaja might be unlucky with the DRS, Smith hasn't been. He survived two close calls and got rid of the English team's referrals and then benefited again when the on field umpire missed a pretty plump lbw and thanks to having no referrals got to play on.

Glad to see Clarke going well and if there is any chances of making a decent game of this test he has to lead by example and build a reasonable score in this first innings. Need a couple of others to stand up and Rogers had a decent innings, now for Smith and co to chime in as well hopefully.
