I may not live long enough to ever experience this again, so here is a celebratory thread for English cricketers. I have not felt so proud to be British since Jeffrey Archer was sent to prison!

Just managed to get the win in before the rain came down - great timing!
Swann has his richly deserved fifer, but all the bowling attack played their part magnificently. Wonder if the Aussies will invite Shane Warne back for the 3rd Test? They could do much worse....

It was a delight watching that arrogant, sour-faced, sore-loser, bad-sport, Ponting's face all the way through the match. I don't normally enjoy seeing sportsmen humiliated, but this one made me hug myself with joy.

Having said that, I like the rest of the Oz team (except maybe Siddle, who seems also to be sour-faced and arrogant but, nevertheless, is a great bowler), and I hope they pull it round and make it a series to remember (but with England winning the series of course).

BRING IT ON!!

Excellent performance from England. The bowlers, fielders and the batsmen were a credit.

I always love England defeating Australia, even if it's by one run.

Cracking to watch.

Shame Stuart Broad was injured. I guess that Tim Bresnan will take over.

I would love to see England win the next 3 tests as well. It would make up for all the drubbings they have given us over the years.

Whilst everybody played really well, I am so enthused about having Swann in the team. We finally have a player that can turn the game in terms of the bowling.
How often have we seen our quickies get wickets and nobody has been able to capitalise on that.

He is as good as Shane Warne.

Re my earlier posting, I hear today that there is an online petition running in Oz to bring back Shane Warne for the Perth test! As one Aussie put it - he can't do any worse than the present lot. As Warne has just touched down in the UK today, I suspect that coming out of playing retirement is not top of his 'to do' list. Anyway, if he does then we'll ask Cap'n Beefy the Oz slayer to wield the willow again :-)

No need to drag Beefy away from his Shredded Wheat - Cap'ns Cooke, Finn, Swann and Pieterson, The Young Oz-Slayers, seem to be doing a pretty good job.

Until the 1974 Local Government reorganisation forced on us by the nasty Tories, it was known as Parts of Lindsey, Gerry. As us Yorkies were forced into an unholy alliance with the Yellerbellies, most of us kept on calling our bit East Yorkshire. What they call your council shouldn't affect the name of your home.

Anyway, I still like Lincs. Maggie and I spent last weekend there and it was great. And getting back to cricket, one of Yorkshire's greatest captains and administrators, Lord Hawke, was a Lincolnshire man - in spite of Yorkshire's boast to only employ their own.

Even Beefy has beaten up Greg Chappell, it cannot get much better.
Poor old Ponting's nails are already chewed down to the quick. Where does he go from here?
Aussies are however great fighters they will not go out with a whimper.

Siddle sour-faced? He was beaming from ear to ear when he played the ball on to his stumps and the bails didn't fall off (about 10 runs before the end).

I still fear that normality will return quickly and that England will be sent home with the usual ritually tanned hides. Victories against Australia are a bit like finding a rose on a dung heap. It is nice when it happens, but it is not in the natural order of things!

The Aussies must be getting desparate - they've just named Michael Beer as part of the squad. He's a left-arm spinner who's never played in a Test match and has a fairly mediocre record in first-class cricket. Obviously not much coming through their much-vaunted cricket academy these days.

Still early days, but it looks like England are laying the foundations of a win at Perth - the Aussie top-order batsmen simply folded and it was just was well that Hussey steadied the ship for them. We haven't beaten the Aussies at Perth since 1978 so victory here will be sweet indeed - as well as guaranteeing that we keep the Ashes. It won't do much good for Ricky Ponting's career though......

Excellent first day and Collingwood once again pulling off a blinding catch to addd to Pontings woe. Thought we rather let them get away in the afternoon session. to let them get to 250 suggests that there is a lot of batting coming on this wicket.
