A good effort today, a bit of pride restored. We needed this in the 1st innings though, not when the match is over. England will collapse at some point, they always do.

This is proper test cricket finally- dig in, get some runs, punish the bad balls and more importantly BE PATIENT!

Stokes is doing all he can, but he is being badly let down by some of his team mates here.

A hot, long weekend where there could have been plenty of opportunities to sit in the garden, cold one in hand and radio on with TMS chatting away. Ho hum.

Get yourself another tinny

Only cricket can do that. In the moment nothing can touch football, but at its best cricket is like a great play, or a grand opera, that throws the emotions this way and that as it builds towards its climax.

I love Aggers commentary on games like that. His clear and obvious cricketer balance goes out of the window slightly, his voice rises a bit and his excitement gets the better of him. It was a joy to listen.

The last hour commentary is available on the bbc app, listened to it this morning, great stuff.

I know he's a great batsman but this team seems to have a complete mental block when it comes to Smith. It's almost like they don't believe they can get him out.

This Leach no ball is an omen ... no Ashes for England I'm afraid... just not good enough

Only hope already feels like a draw in this one and a win at the oval. I just can't see it though as we seem to guarantee Smith a century everytime he bats.

Interesting stat before today's match, no Australian bats man had averaged over 13 runs in the first three tests apart  from Smith and Labuschagne !
