    Well what performances from Khawaja plus the Marsh'

    Also too Smith for his 687 runs this series at an average of 137.4......

    England crumbling but credit to Root for fighting and it seems he's dislocated a finger too....... he's playing on though.....

    Root is in hospital with severe dehydration. Yesterday was f**king insanity I don’t know how any professional sport can allow that play to continue in those conditions.
    Even with two tours of Afghanistan and working a job here in Australia as a driller I have never experienced heat like yesterday. The combination of heat and humidity was just bonkers.

    Tbh, I'm surprised just one player needed medical treatment like that. Australian team was lucky they managed to preserve their bowlers from that heat.

    I said the same thing, you couldn’t drink fast enough to replace what was coming out.

    And all this time through the series I thought the POMS had "turned to water."

    Root had gastro enteritis he said & it wasn't heat exhaustion!!

    Yeah seen that just now. Either way that was crazy yesterday. I have felt like shit since I got back and I’m normally very good in the heat.

    Not ideal conditions,that's for certain but in Aust.,as a cricketer,you have to tolerate the weather that comes your way.
    I'm not a fan of the "night" tests but with this heat it will probably now become the norm!

    Yes no maybe. It seems things are getting hotter every year there has to be a limit to what people can endure. We already stop play for bad weather perhaps with climate change it’s going to happen at the opposite end of the weather spectrum.
    This isn’t me complaining as an england fan, this as it turns out non incident would have changed nothing anyway.

    Not technically the ashes I know but we’ve made a good start to this ODI.
