Most people I know still call it Ayer's Rock as that is still part of its official name.

Very sporting of you KB. But thereís still a lot of pride to be played for. A win at the Oval for the Aussies means itís a 3-2 loss, which doesnít look too bad, whereas another defeat makes it 4-1 which is pretty severe by Test match standards. Of course there should be 6 Test Matches played but better not let tradition get in the way of making money.

Hats off to the boys. Not only a fine honour guard for Clarke's final test but now we're even playing as an Aussie tribute side. Sportsmanship at its best

Aussies dominating at the end of Day 2. Can England avoid the follow on? They would have by now if all of Mitchell Johnson’s No Balls had been called.

Seriously WTF is going on with No Balls? Seems Bowlers are only referred for a check for overstepping when a wicket falls. The rest of the time Bowlers can do as they please bowling from 20 yards without feeling restricted.

I see the convicts have tarnished the game of cricket yet again appealing for Ben Stokes to be given out for Obstructing the Field, with the appeal being upheld by the Third Umpire. Disgraceful almost woke some of the MCC members up from their gin and champagne soaked slumbers.

Interestingly Stokes is the first Englishman to be given out in this way. The other cricketers comprise of One Indian with all the rest being Pakistani. Speaks volumes.

FWIW I have no idea what Stokes was trying to do, in fact he almost caught the ball as his hand was cupped but thought better of it. Still you can’t miss a chance to have a dig at the Aussies.

When the ball is coming at you at pace it's pretty natural to get your hand to it to protect yourself.

What a disgrace to far play and sportsmanship. Fuck off Aussies if that is the only way to win.
