England v Australia from Headingley
The Leeds wicket has captured more than its fair share of headlines in recent years - in 1972 a freak thunder-storm left the pitch under-prepared and ideal for Derek Underwood; in 1975 protestors struck and ruined the wicket, preventing play on the last day.
Recent evidence points to today's wicket being a very good one and it should provide a fair match as England resume their bid to regain ' The Ashes'.

- The average prison officer is the best psychologist in the business. He understands his charges. He unlocks them. He's the first man they see in the morning; the last one at night. He's the one who could help them.'
Yet prison staff, from basic grade officers to governors, are worried about the way the service is going, and deteriorating relations with their charges -often violent men intent upon dis- y ruption.
