Fifth Test, First Day: Say hello, wave goodbye

Call that a day? 134-4 - usually a session in this series isn't it...

No pressure, then: 'Usman Khawaja attempted to fill the growing void that is Australia's leadership vacuum. In just his first relatively modest Test innings, the delightfully poised left-hander has already done enough to show why he should bat above Ricky Ponting and Michael Clarke' - Malcolm Conn, The Australian

Cheers mate: 'Colly has been a brilliant servant for English cricket and is well liked by the management. This is England's chance to show there is no room for sentiment within their squad. If England want to become the best side in the world they have got to be ruthless. Morgan is as tough as they come...' - Andrew Flintoff writes about his old chum, News Of The World

Fred's qualifications as a columnist: 'Don't know anything about Aussie no. 3!' - via Twitter

What Fred was watching on Sky Sports last night: 'Can't believe they're moving the darts for the cricket' [as the world darts semi-final was shifted from Sky Sports 1 to Sky Sports 2 at 11pm]

And... 'Don't stop for lunch and tea at the arrows! Real sport!' - both via Twitter

Weather forecast: 'Sydney is baking today. Hotter than Alastair Cook in a pair of skinny jeans' - Graeme Swann, via Twitter
