Unless some unlikely accident with a forgotten cricket ball reoccurs, England are looking to be in a very bad state indeed after the first three days of the first Ashes Test, which is unfortunate given the prediliction a number of Aussies have for rubbing it in (well, at least we have something else to watch on TV). Fortunately, none of the Aussies I know are that sort (probably because they're either scientists or female or both).
Either way... oh dear. Oh dear, oh dear, oh dear. I hope it's just rust and we'll be able to at least put up some resemblence of a fight later.
