Who said it? Was it you? You better hope it wasn't. Let it never be said again that test cricket is boring. So far the first test of this Ashes summer has thrown up more drama than a Neighbours omnibus.

And OFF STUMPED has spotted one of the classic signs that the Poms are rattled: Perusing the comments on the BBC website yesterday, your favourite Ashes pre-play blog spotted several Neighbours-based Aussie taunts.

You know, for a fact, that when the Poms are resorting to this sort of stuff they're feel non-too-confident.

It was however cockle-warming to see the number of Englishman tweeting their, OFF-STUMPED felt, genuine disappointment when Ashton Agar got out two-short of an tenth wicket century.

We all remember Shane Warne's Ashes debut - The Ball of the Century - and while Warne had a profound affect on his first Ashes test, Agar's contribution on his debut might be all the more telling.

It will, as sure-as-stumps-as-stumps, go down in history as one of the greatest debuts innings ever.

There was even commiserations from a former 11th batsman who fell five runs short of his 100.
