This Australia side is like watching England in World Cups up until 2015. The game has moved forward and they're too slow to adapt. 

Outstanding from England though

Idiot :oops:

The English players heading on to the Ashes are sharing a flight with the Australia side, that's going to be an even longer journey now!

Good to see the ECB finally take some action against Yorkshire but I think they could have gone further. They've not only embarrassed themselves with such a pathetic response but they're now dragging the whole of English cricket through the mud. How on earth did they think that this would just go quietly away? 

It's hardly surprising that it's Yorkshire involved, and now Vaughan implicated as well.

After today I think David Lloyd is heading for retirement as well.

Although a good captain, Vaughan has never struck me as the sharpest knife in the drawer and is certainly a bit of a right winger who's made some questionable remarks in the past. 

Lloyd is of a significantly different generation where bonding down the pub/clubhouse was de rigeur in cricket circles, so could perhaps be put down to simply being out-of-touch. But generally he isn't, so who knows?

Think careers will be over after this.

Terrible day for English cricket.

A reaction is needed but getting that reaction right will be difficult, to soft and English cricket will be accused of being in denial and not changing.

To harsh punishments and it will drive another rift in our society.

Tim Paine resigns as Australia captain after messages to a female colleague from 2017 were leaked.

Seems odd considering he was investigated and cleared at the time, disappointing for England as well if he drops out of the side!

Could be an awkward series if Cummins knows how to use reviews properly - unlike Paine... :rolleyes:

Paine not playing would also deprive the Barmy Army of a song or two as well. They've already managed to get inside his head... ;)

Ajaz Patel becomes the 3rd bowler in Test history to take all 10 wickets in an innings. 

Probably wasn't expecting to be bowling again within 2 hours though!

Fascinating selection from England.

Robinson, Woakes, Wood massive opportunity for them all.

It will be interesting to see How Cummins gets on as skipper, Carey could be dangerous for Australia.
