LOL. Australia crash and go up in flames. All out even before lunch on 1st day on 4 Ashes test at Trent Bridge. The only fourth time in history such a thing has happened. Australia's first innings is shortest in test history. It included the earliest fall ever of 4th, 5th and 6th wickets in test history. Broad's figures of 8-15 was England's third best ever in an Ashes test behind only Jim Laker's 9-37 and 10-53 at Trent Bridge in 1956.

'Ashes disgrace', RIP cricket and a nudie run: how Australia's media reacted

The Oval - Protest planned for final Ashes Test over state of modern cricket. The organisers are the makers of the film Death of a Gentleman. Cricket is therefore run with no transparency and no accountability, according to Collins and his co-director Jarrod Kimber. Another theme of the film is that Test cricket is dying. This is not immediately apparent when an Ashes series is in full swing, but it is when other countries meet for a two-Test series which nobody turns up at the ground to…

The world’s best Test batsman, Steve Smith, equalled his first innings tally only to be unnerved by a ball from Broad that jagged violently back into him and thus tricked him into hanging out his bat limply at the next, which held its line and landed in the lap of second slip.

What a beauty. After lords disaster a week back, Anderson uses wobbly seam to leave Australian batsmen clueless and take a 5-fer on the first day of the third test at Edgbaston. Immediately the lunch, he had Adam Voges and Mitchell Marsh caught behind in consecutive overs.

‪ Australia's middle order succumbed to James Anderson bowling on English Surface! Australia all out on James Anderson took fantastic 6 for 47 in Overs. Broad and Finn both took 2 wickets each. At the end of day 1 - England innings NM Lyon took 2 wickets!

Mitchell Johnson retires. He explains he didn't have the will to readjust his bowling style and continue. Bowl fast or none. The baton was really passed from the old fast bowling era to the present when in the failed Ashes campaign 4 months back, new ball was shared between Mitchell Starc and Test greenhorn Josh Hazlewood. Just the second time in 16 Tests since his triumphant return to Test cricket in the career-defining Ashes summer of 2013-14 that Johnson had been overlooked.

Retired quick explains he didn't have the will to readjust his bowling style and continue

Australia’s win in the final Test at The Oval wraps up on one of the more bizarre Ashes series in the the 133-year Ashes history. Every match has been a blow out and the toss has meant nothing and everything and the pre-match favourites lost every Test. It’s only the second Ashes series of five matches or more that’s had a result in every fixture, and not one Test has gone into the fifth day. And if you look purely at the stats, Australia should have won the series in a canter.

There were joyful choruses of Rule Britannia and Land of Hope and Glory as England’s heroes embarked on a lap of honour in the sunshine. There was gentle mockery from a gleeful Gary Lineker who tweeted: “Surprised even those minnows of world cricket, Australia, couldn’t last until the first Premier League game of the season kicked off.” And there was an emotional resignation speech from the Aussie captain, Michael Clarke.

This was nothing less than a calamitous day for England, the resurgent optimism that came with their win in Cardiff blown into smithereens by Australia. They were utterly relentless ... If England dominated the first Test in all aspects, then it was repaid with interest, on a belting pitch at Lord’s. They were batted into oblivion, outbowled to an embarrassing degree, outfielded, and, in as much as Michael Clarke won the toss, outcaptained.
