    Woke up this morning and found out the game was still on, bit surprised, but that's probably because I haven't been following the series too closely.

    Such dismally disinteresting cricket. That drop from Bresnan illustrated it quite well.

    Very happy for White though, you still have to make the 100 runs, and he did that, so well played.

    England. Stop the singles ffs. Get closer, letting them have singles every ball is just setting you up for failure, as a boundary ball is inevitible with our bowling.

    A quick XI to add into the mix:

    Craig Kieswetter +
    Ravi Bopara
    Alex Hales
    Kevin Pietersen *
    Jonathan Trott
    Andrew Flintoff
    Luke Wright
    Stuart Broad
    Adil Rashid
    Graeme Swann
    Ryan Sidebottom

    I want to see this team when everyone's fit/qualified (Kieswetter). Bin as many of this team as possible and get some hitters into the side. Tell Bopara to play his proper game, get Hales in to give it a whack, Trott has to play and Anderson has to go. At least if this team's picked the cricket would be entertaining. Kieswetter, Bopara, Hales, Pietersen, Trott, Flintoff and Wright aren't going to hang around and strike at 60 runs per 100 balls. Well, Bopara under Strauss would, but if he plays properly, like he does for Essex he would do a far better job. Also, I don't really care if Hales isn't 'ready' for International cricket. He looks to have a decent technique and is seriously powerful. You'll only know if he's good enough once he plays, I say give him a go.

    Aus deserved to win, we deserved to lose, Clarke sucks. This game taught us nothing we didn't already know.

    What an awful cricket match. Just have to hope for rain for the rest of the series.

    Obviously it's very possible that Freddie might never play for England again. Therefore, it is very possible that we're ****ed. Miss him more than we will in the Test side.

    and please never let Pietersen get injured again.

    My word, we're dire at ODIs.

    Glad these came after the Ashes, could have been some serious damage done to morale etc

    It is going to be a matter of time before Bangladesh beat your mob.

    The good thing about the ODI's being after the Tests is that even when we're 7-0 down I can still post this;

    In affectionate remembrance of Australian cricket, which died at the Oval on 23rd August 2009. Deeply lamented by a large circle of criminals and bar staff. RIP.

    Hard to believe we beat SA 4-0 last summer.

    Flintoff & Broad played a fair part in that as I remember it, though

    Bopara - 87 runs @ 28.66. SR of 57.71 FFS
    Shah - 60 runs @ 20, SR of 75.94
    Prior - 29 runs @ 9.66, SR of 51.71

    Dreaful. Bopara and Prior make Shah look like Symonds tbf.

    The answer to all of England's problems is still superstar all rounder Tom Smith.

    If this was pre-Ashes, this would all be big news. As it is, I can't imagine that a single person on CW gives much of a toss about this series. Really poor scheduling
