    All out for 72.

    What a shower of crap

    Winston Churchill, Gerry Adams MP, Missus Thatcher, your team took a hell of a beating today!

          Did you see Zimbabwe's performance against NZ earlier today? Bowled out twice in a day - including for 51.


          New Zealand 495 for 7 dec (Taylor 122, Watling 102*) beat Zimbabwe 51 (Waller 23) and 143 (Chakabva 63, Martin 6-26) by an innings and 301 runs

            And the way the English economy is performing soon people from Bradford will be going to Pakistan looking for work.

            Zimbabwe? No, missed that. Sounds like Mugabe picked the team though.

              Amazing how the No.1 team in the world can fold so embarrasingly and that alongside India the former No.1 who for the last month have got a proper thrashing. (Nice to see monty being tight and get wickets.)

              Strauss' first games since september is strange, how many more of the team had no cricket also, 2 mickey mouse warm ups, strange prepartion for a Test series.

                They tried that excuse after the 1st test - but they did OK in this test until the final innings. Think that fiasco was a good old fashioned mix of fine bowling and batting panic there today.

                7 of the English players only managed 3 runs between them

                  Third Test started this morning.

                  Pak won toss, batted and were bundled out for 99. At tea, England are 20 -2.

                    UPDATE: England have just scraped their way into the lead. Just before the close they are 100-6.

                    Andy Strauss is hanging in grimly on 40*. Another flop for Morgan, who did hit a decent six before falling.

                      Presumably Swann is the No.1 spinner in the team, strange to see Monty first up every time and bowling more than Swann.

                      I have heard very little of the commentary, Do they think he has passed Swann or is it just horses for courses?

                        Will the game make it to the third day? Hawk eye becomes less trustworthy by the session IMO.

                          Some spinners struggle to bowl when the ball is new. Swann puts serious revs on the ball which probably puts more pressure on the fingers; and Monty has the most ridiculously large hands and fingers, the ball looks the size of a golf ball in his massive mits.

                            Lot of LBs.
                            England to bat last. Could be interesting if wicket keeps turning.

                              104 for six at the close. 203 for 16 over the whole day. As Cricinfo says anything near 150 would be difficult, batting last. They reckon England would need 200 or more this time to have any confidence.

                                I'd make Pak slight favourites at this stage.
