Rather have no play today than lose the toss and have to face Woakes in overcast conditions. Come back tomorrow
Almost hope it pours down now
Keep raining till stumps at least
Only 2 hours till we can call this fiasco day off
Probably a good thing if they just call the day off. Can catch up half an hr a day anyway.
We get it buddy

Bummer. England really don't deserve to take part in the Ashes with their s**thouse weather.

Give it to a more deserving team like the West Indies or UAE.

Why the fu** can't they do the toss and teams s**t now? Why do we have to wait until it stops raining and cause more delay?

So many idiotic rules in Test Cricket that massively hurt the game.
The toss will take place 30 mins before the umpires and groundstaff believe the conditions will be suitable for play, it's not delaying or hurting the game at all.

Rain, rain go away, come again another day (but preferably not in the next four)
Should get a full day's play tomorrow but more rain is forecast for Friday and Saturday and then it's clear again on Sunday.

Doubtful that a result will be possible unless there is some great bowling or terrible batting.

Of course we all want to see cricket but a draw here leaves the hosts having to win 2 of the next 3 tests, so it's clearly advantage Aus...

Well the only good thing to come out of the rain today, is that I was able to watch Gayle go spare against India in what looks to be his last ever ODI innings. What a sight that was
