We bring you events from inside the ground on day two of the 3rd Investec Ashes Test Match

Look at these amazing cakes! Thanks to Georgina (@GeorgiePorgies_) who made these for the press and TMS. We understand that there is a surprise on its way to a certain somebody at Sky as well!

"Modern Test matches are a confection of art and business. The art in the present match has been provided by Michael Clarke, whose unbeaten 125 on the first day was full of precise footwork and assured strokeplay. The business has concerned almost everything else." Read our Tales from the Test - Day 2

There is a trumpeter in this group somewhere?? Listen here.

Paul Edwards is contributing his 'Tales From the Test' each day - here are his thoughts at the start of day 2

If you are here over the five days, you will know this man as the "Voice of the Test".

Good morning everyone, it is overcast here at the moment, hopefully this will assist the bowling side this morning! The players have arrived and the media are broadcasting their pre-match coverage.
