Wonder if that has ever happened to the Aussies before in a Test Match?

So this morning I was watching SSN, looking at the conditions etc and decided I would put a bet on Broad getting 5 wickets if we won the toss.
No rush I thought, as the SSN ticker came up on my phone on the way to work to confirm we were going to bowl.

What were the odds and how much were you going to chuck on?

Twice before, extras scored 53 out of 248 in a loss to West Indies, March 1991
And extras scored 36 out of 200, a loss to West Indies, April 1984.

First time in Ashes history for either side.

Never saw the exact odds, but it's 7/2 for the 2nd innings and I was gonna stick £20 on.

I reckon we'll bat until tea on day four, set them a target of 1245 runs to win and then draw the test. <neg>

Just watched the wickets. That catch from Stokes <****>. Just great bowling for most of the wickets, exceptions being Smith who was all over the place and Clarke's ugly hack.

There is one thing better than the Stokes catch, Broad's face once he notices it has been caught <laugh>
