    To have lost this Test after batting so well first up and to be bowled out is near criminal for mine and so is the non selection of Monty Panesar. Giles is handy with the bat and can tie a guy down, but apart from India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka or Bangladesh Giles won't really run through a side. I guess a stock bowler is the term I need.

    I would drop him for Monty, at least he is capable of getting wickets needed to win a game. Who knows? Australia may not have made 513 1st up.

    And as I type a wide bowled by Harmison.
    Australia's bowling was Great, but in all reality England dug themselves into a hole but being so reluctant to get runs... They were so happy in just surviving that they got so bogged down they couldn't get out of it(Well they could get out, just not the way they wanted)..

    Really England did not deserve to lose this test, BUT in saying that they only have themselves to blame...

    From an Australian point of view, it was the amazingly tight bowling. Every bowler was at the Poms, with line and length and movement. Where the English bowlers keep straying to leg, Australia are nagging at off-stump almost every ball.

    At least you haven't been awake all night enduring this horror show. I will be going to no lengths whatsoever to watch the rest of this series, because I'm 100% sure we have no hope whatsoever of even remaining competitive in the remaining Tests unless we undergo a drastic change of approach and get some serious cricket under our belts.

    We are about to lose an unlosable Test match, and I personally am thoroughly embarrassed by it. The players need to take a long hard look at themselves, and concentrate on getting whatever they can out of the remaining Tests. The Ashes are gone.

    This would really be heart breaking for England, I mean it is one thing to lose if you had a real chance of winning but to have this is just sad.

    Dropped chance by Geraint.

    Really you should take that at Test level.

    It'll be an interesting MOM call this one. Collignwood, Ponting, Hussey, Hoggard (to a lesser degree Warne and KP but both had a poor innings each) all have claims.

    Who should get it?

    Drop by Jones.

    That scoreboard that says 'X runs to win' is giving me horrible memories of last year...

    Thought the first innings at the Gabba was dire, here's a new low for England.

    Great win by Australia. But I pretty much agree, after what happened the first two sessions today, my anticipation for the rest of the series has appreciably dropped.

    Can't help but be excited by such a win though. Fantastic stuff, this team is just never out of a game.

    Can please Ricky Ponting and michael Hussey have a form slump.

    How many runs do you want to get?

    Geez Australia are all celebrating if they won the WC and the lottery all at once.

    Collingwood for mine. Played an excellent knock that really should have been match-winning by right.
