Day Five At Brisbane

Background: Hundreds for Strauss and Cook meant that England let by 80 with only one wicket down.

How did it start: Cook with an unbeaten century, and Trott with an unbeaten fifty at the crease.

Where did it all go wrong for Australia?: They bowled even worse than yesterday

Where did it all go right for Australia?: England declared.

Where did it all go wrong for England?: Didn't have time for Cook to make his 500.

Where did it all go right for England?: Not losing a wicket all day, Cook's maiden double ton, Trott's second successive Ashes century, gaining loads of momentum and disheartening Australia massively.

Who won each session?: Morning - England. Afternoon - England. Evening - Nobody was that bothered.

Who won the day?: England. Again.

Crumb of comfort?: At least Australia didn't lose too many wickets.

Shot of the day: Trott's lofted drive over straight on. Gorge.

Ball of the day: Broad getting Katich. The only wicket taking ball of the day.

Man of the day: Ally Cook. Honourable mention to Trott.

And finally... Ashes Oddity: The Ashes on Twitter. An American woman left very confused by her new found celebrity status.
