Gatting Enjoying Frenetic Start To Ashes Series

Former England captain Mike Gatting has enjoyed the opening two days of the 2013 Ashes series, calling it exciting, frenetic and fantastic.

He was talking to us shortly before running in the Standard Chartered City Race where he is raising money for Seeing Is Believing.

Asked about the opening two days at Trent Bridge, he says he has enjoyed the start of the series and the way the match has gone 'backwards and forwards'.

He praises the performance of Australia's debutant Ashton Agar, who made 98 on his debut batting at number 11 as Australia recovered to post an unlikely first-innings lead before England hit back to lead at stumps.
