Ashes to Ashes

Listing to the Ashes as I work. The first test has been exciting stuff so far with an astonishing debut by 19-year old Australian Aston Agar batting at number 11 yesterday and knocking the ball like he was their number 3.

I suspect the series won’t be the runaway win for England that everyone was predicting – even the Oz supporters themselves. It makes for interesting listening and I’m very much enjoying Test Match Special.

You can follow the progress of the Ashes on 5 Live Sports Extra on digital radio, via the new iPlayer Radio app and there’s also a useful web page that updates itself as each test match progresses¬†here.
