With England staring down the barrel of another heavy defeat, it has become clear that in the past three months the sides have completed a remarkable role reversal.

How did you view the last session today after the Oi-Oi-Oi boys got 570? How bullish are you about Australia’s chances of winning the game? And what is the key to winning this game?

How much more luck can Australia squeeze from this Test? How can England reel in a rampant Michael Clarke? Can England retain the Ashes without a major resurgence from Graeme Swann?

If you want to buy into a Test cricket argument, there’s no better place to start than Shane Watson.

England have been give major boost ahead of the second Test by the availability of Tim Bresnan and a drop-in wicket likely to play in similar manner to those pitches England dished up during the winter Ashes series.

In the wake of their shocking handling of Jonathan Trott’s departure from England’s Ashes squad due to mental health issues, the Australian media should be asking how far are they willing to go just to sell a few newspapers?

I was sorry to see people such as Jordan Silk, Ed Cowan, Alex Doolan, Shaun Marsh and Marcus North fail with the bat in the Sheffield Shield.

I did some stand-up gigs recently. They didn’t go particularly well. I didn’t exactly die on stage, but my vital signs were less than robust.

It has been suggested by some Australia should rest Ryan Harris for the Adelaide Test to protect him from being over-bowled in what is expected to be a high-scoring affair on a placid pitch.

The 381-run first Ashes Test loss saw the English battered and bruised in the body as well as brutalised in mind. So does the loss represent a standing eight count or indeed a knock-out blow?

Whenever a player shows signs of potential, we are all quick to call them the next Ricky Ponting or Shane Warne. You would think this is a great compliment, but too often it has been a dark hovering cloud of expectation.

After the first Test, news broke Jonathan Trott was suffering personal problems and he has been given praise for standing up for himself.

The most surprising thing about the sledging issue is that it is an issue at all. Why people are surprised sledging happens is mystifying.

Well I’ll be. The ICC has moved with unheard of speed to fine Australian skipper Michael Clarke 20 per cent of his match fee for sledging England’s paceman James Anderson with his “f****** broken arm” quote.

England batsman Jonathan Trott will make a premature exit from this summer’s Ashes tour, with a “stress related illness” being cited as the reason for his return home.

I spent last week moping around the office stating, “we’ll lose” anytime anyone mentioned the Ashes, pretending I didn’t care and could somehow sit down and enjoy, in some ironic fashion, Australia melting like the wicked witch into another chapter of Australian sporting history.
