Preamble

Hello everyone and welcome to the Boxing Day Ash Test live coverage. We are in class at Melbourne Cricket Ground at 10:30 am local time (11:30 pm UK).

I hope you are all well fed, well rested and ready for one of the milestone days on the sporting calendar. As Cliff Richard sang, it’s a time to give (your wicket away by swiping backwards to point during a blockathon) a time to get (give up), a time to forgive (Jos Buttler) and a time to forget (Joe Root winning the raffle in Brisbane). Now, let’s rejoice in the good that we see.

This property includes the selection of Scott Boland, only the second native Australian man to receive a baggy green, as well as the prospect of around 70,000 fans within the MCG, providing one of the sport’s most incredible audiences. There is one last chance for England to right some wrongs in the battle to win back the Ashes. Pat Cummins is back. Jonny Bairstow too. And Zak Crawley. So put the wrapping paper in the recycle, lay out your pick box on the table, and settle in for one of the best sports days (or nights) of the year.

I will come back with more information shortly, but if you would like to participate, you can reach me via email or Twitter (@JPHowcroft).

Merry Christmas from MCG Nets.
