A storm has appears on the weather radar, to the north west and moving slowly south east towards Esk and Wivenhoe Dam. On hot humid days like today, these can grow in diameter/length as they move move towards the coast. Seems that Warner and Labuschagne may also be watching the radar ...

I liked this comment by an Englishman on the ESPN live scores.
Ben: "What even is the point of the Australian leg of the Ashes? We're well on our way to 14 Oz wins in 15 tests here. Just hand the Ashes back to Australia after a couple of years and let England try and win it when they've got the Duke to help level the playing field."

Well we’re waiting for the changeover from first sitting to second sitting. Then hopefully going back as we have a bottle of the Mt Edelstone decanting. Life’s tough 🤷‍♂️

Warner very lucky not to run himself out after hitting the ball to short leg and thinking it was past, started up the pitch. Ball thrown and Warner scrambled back, fell over and lying supine on the ground, dropped the bat. He was gone if it had hit

Well this was the most fun we’ve had in a while - a runner on the field. He started off fast and eluded a couple of security before being tackled in front of the players section.

TheRealTMA, the umpires have become inconsistent with calling then. 🤷‍♂️

Cameron does this on his first ball, shoulders arms and the death rattle

A few sprinkles near my place to to the north of Brisbane. And radar shows a some dampness coming through further south of me. With the Aussies now more than double the England first innings score, a little more moisture might be good for the Friday morning session ;)
