    TBH I am not reading anything into the current state of the match seems as it's being played in a neutral venue. Fully instead an Ashes Test in Wellington next year to return the favour.

    I'm dead-set against Lord's hosting the Ashes opener. Was an ancient tradition for it to host the sophomore match, and what's more there's Australia's outstanding record there to consider.

    Between 1899 (when the five-Test series became the norm) and 2001, there were 24 series', and only once (in the impromptu, relatively hastily arranged series in 1977) was the Lord's Test anything but the Second Test.

    I'm glad it's back to the proper pattern this year and hope it reverts to it again from now on. Have absolutely no idea why Lord's rather than Edgbaston hosted the opener in 2005.

    Never touched a drop of anything last night though and had slept in yesterday morning so wasn't tired. Inexcusable tbh.

    I make mistakes almost as often when tired as when myself TBH. And I imagine you had the lie-in this morning not last night?

    can't be bothered to trawl through the thread to find it but I do believe I predicted KP to fall early and Strauss and Colly to be the key wickets....
