The England Australia Test series has begun. There is another aspect to all the fun when the two teams meet. The people reactions on social media. Wonder all the stand up comedians get their lines from random people quotes.
As long as we roll em for under 400 we’ll be right. This pitch is flatter then Kate Middleton’s chest! #Ashes @WWOS9

Great see that @englandcricket have made their wicket like their play, dull and boring. Grow a pair and keep some grass on. #ashes

Moeen Ali and Stuart Broad. Opposite ends of the “Who would you let your sister date?” spectrum. #Ashes

The press is already after the team and players after the first day, where as the series is a long one and spread over entire July and August. The players though are all worked up and raring to go. We can expect fierce competition in the days to come.
Goosebumps this morning. Great first day! Set up to be a fantastic series. Thanks for all the lovely messages.#ashes pic.twitter.com/uGEcf1gtcV
