I love Ashes Test cricket. The 'Gabba Test is really awesome. I was at the last Ashes Test at the 'Gabba and was surprised at the comfort and facilities there. A great atmosphere as well.
Today had everything. Ponting with his back to the wall. Strauss wanting to take the initiative and batting first. Petersen entertaining with great shots and bravado. Debutant Doherty dropping a catch, only to be consoled quickly by his Captain, and then picking up his first two Test wickets. Bell playing some great shots. Watson showing his all round skills. Also, Hilfenhaus - not fantastic but making the initial breakthrough. Only Johnson missed out. Perhaps he can make up for his lack of wickets with runs.
