Up early for the first overs of the day

I woke up earlier than usual this morning to catch the first overs of today's second day of the first ASHES Test match between ENGLAND and AUSTRALIA at Trent Bridge, Nottingham.
I'm listening on the radio online.
Yesterday, Peter Siddle took five wickets as the visiting Aussies held England to 215 runs.
Australia are currently 108-5 in reply, Stephen Smith was just caught out for 53.
The low scores suggest the bowlers are in the ascendancy during this initial Test.
I first heard cricket on the radio during a summer trip to the Netherlands when I was on the verge of entering high school. It has remained one of my favorite summer pastimes.
