feck me. Scenes. Little bit of help from Harris, Paine, Cummins and Lyon but that is incredible. Well done Jack Leach. No more words for Stokes. Ludicrous cricketer.

He absolutely destroyed the Oz with a one man hero show; (bet there are some long faces in the kangaroo camp tonight) but let's not forget he couldn't have done it without Jack Leach's help. Here's to him.. Astonishing, almost unbelievable day's cricket. :pissed: :pray:

Haha yeah that got a big cheer in the pub. Pecked away for two hours from about 12 to be allowed to watch it. Persuaded the non-sporters to finally drag into a pub by which time Archer was in and then hoiked out. Then Broad gone. Thought we'd be out again soon. Explaining the fielding and why Stokes' wasn't taking singles etc Absolute scenes by the end as the whole pub went mental.

World Cup was great but there's nothing like test cricket.

Just love Stokes' reaction to his hundred. Basically nothing. Quick nod, back to his guard. Cf. Dhoni at the world cup batting for himself and his average.

Fecking Boycott acclaiming Stokes. He'd have been up the other end with 75 to get shouting "good luck, Jack'.

An admirable finish to an absorbing Ashes test match. My man of the match is Jack Leach. Seventy odd runs to safety must have seemed a very tall mountain to climb. I am well aware of Stokes' efforts to keep him away from the ball, but he still faced 17 balls (let's call it three overs), for one run, of the ten bowled after his entrance.

Of course we can't discount the earlier contributions of Root (77) and Denly (50) and then Bairstow with his 36 off 68 balls.

I was only listening to the BBC broadcast and not watching television (watching TV at early hours does not go down too well in my house) I got the impression, not one expressed by the commentators, that the Australian bowlers were 'panicking' as England got nearer and nearer to its target.

Congratulations to England for a valiant and successful fight back.
