Astonishing, live sport at its best in so many different formats, difficult to beat. Never seen anything like it at the cricket or the tennis for that matter.

The Tennis was incredible. And 5 hours of it too.
Amazing that they can physically & mentally endure that pressure while maintaining such a high level of focus.

Absolutely , and I know it’s not PC ,but who cares , I’m sure they’re well happy to have played 5 sets and won Exactly the same as Haley did , when she won her final in 6-2, 6-2 in under 2 hours . Doesn’t seem fair tome
Tennis and the porn industry , two places women get paid so much more than men ( in monetary terms anyway.
As for the cricket , how can NZ not have won it , when they had the same scores , but had lost fewer wickets .
Then in the Oasis (champagne Super 1 Over) level on scores and we win , because in the main game we hit more boundaries .How random is that , why not how many dot balls .
I would have loved it , if it had been , 5 overs , and Just 2 batsmen , get as many runs as possible , and if you lose a wicket , you lose 20 runs

If golf is allowed in here I’d like to wish Shane Lowry all the best today at the Open in Portrush. He’s leading by 4 and last time he was in this position he lost it at the US Open.

Good luck mate you deserve it, shot 8 under yesterday.

The support for Shane today will be immense!

Today was so funny , the ball went past the bat , missed the pad ,and the Aussies heard a noise and appealed .......only for it to be shown it hit the wicket, BUT the bails didn’t get removed .
Followed by, “ Same old Australia ,always cheating “
I told a mate who went to visit Australia two years ago , when asked , “ do you have a criminal record “ , don’t respond with “ do you still need one ??”

Quite ridiculous that Smith is banned from another year from a "leadership role",but is quite clearly captaining the side,organising the field,speaking to bowlers...Still the hollies stand singing "he`s got samdpaper in his hands" is one of the banterist chants I have heard in any sport.

He should have been banned for longer than the 12 months so he missed the World Cup and these Ashes ......also like the Same old Aussies always cheating .this came after they appealed , but the ball missed the bat, missed the pad , Hit the wicket , but the bails never came off

I don’t disagree.

That said, it goes both ways. Whether it be sandpaper or Werther’s Originals.;)

So true, punisment is so unevenly handled,some sports doping = lifetime ban,others a short period or never if appeals carry on for awhile,cheating,well in football happens every minute of every game,appealing for something not yours,simulation,time wasting,rugby fake blood,I mean WTF fake blood to use a blood substitute,and even the posh boys cheat at cricket now.Way of the world,winning has become everything,very little sportmanship out there,from players let alone fans.Have to say sandpaper was a new level of stupidity,so many cameras how on earth did they think it would go un-noticed..Cant get holier than thou because england have done it,pakistan well dont even talk about spot betting.Shame is next generation just thinks cheating to win is acceptable because that is all sport has become.

I feel a bit for smith,it was warner and bancroft but just happened on his watch (mostly),but most associations in most sports will put a cheat back in ASAP if they are a class player if not person.(more talking about warner here than smith).
