I'm not getting the ABC Radio feed either on the laptop or on tune in on the phone.

Why in the world won't these idiotic cricket boards sell some worldwide rights? They could make a few bucks. I could get the video feed from the Convicts for some amount, but I'd prefer radio. Sadly, I don't have the time this time of year to watch -- but I could certainly listen.

ABC and Cricket Australia are fighting with each other right now, over streaming rights (among other things). CA wants to retain them, and won't let the ABC stream the cricket through its website.

BBC Radio 4 Long Wave was working earlier tonight, but someone eventually remembered to flip the switch in the last two hours. It might work tomorrow night. BBC 5Live Sports Extra was off from the start.

91-8 -- Swann gone for naught.

They still need five to avoid the follow-on.

A collapse even more England than I thought England could do.

Melbourne in 1990 was 6 for only 3 runs - this was 6 for 9 runs.
Yeah -- but this England squad looked much better than this just a few short months ago.

The bad old days weren't over after all, it seems.

Broad caught out for 32. England all out for 136 -- down by 159.

It's no "46-all out" and Mitchell Johnson is no Curtly Ambrose, but goodness, that was ugly.
