    England struggling, another wicket or two in the afternoon will really put Oz in the driving seat

          It was a little weird bowling a slow bouncer when all you need to win was stop the oppo getting a 6. Surely something right up in the blockhole would have made more sense?

            Irish, Welsh and Scots sparcely represented - a disgraceful call by the coach, and blatantly pro Brit. I'm so incensed and disenfranchised that I'm considering dusting off my groin protector (it's yellow by now), putting "Skippy The Bush Kangaroo" on repeat on the stereo and tearing into a couple of cases of Fosters.

            Call me a dishonest fan if you wish, I don't care.
            This the same Lillee who walked purposely towards the wicket at the WACA with his aluminium bat?

              England could be all out here and still have 30 overs left to bowl in the day 213-9!!!!! You can never right off the Aussies.

                A combination of cockiness and sloppiness from England and some decent swing bowling from Peter Siddle who crucially pitched the ball up sees England all out for 215. Still over two hours left in the day I should think although I don't know what time they play on until.

                    I've been to 6 Ashes Series (or at least I claim to have been) so what I say carries extra weight.

                      Don't know if there is a book anywhere on how long this game might last. I suspect it might last quite a lot longer than the market is saying and the game going into a fifth day or even being drawn might not be as mad as it might seem with 14 wickets down before 6.00 on the first day. The forecast is for baking sun from now on which tends to make the ball stop swinging at Trent Bridge and make the pitch go as flat as the atmosphere in my house during a Lions test!?!? Swann could be a spanner in the works but Broad looks in enough trouble with his shoulder. If Aus can manage to not lose anymore tonight they should find tomorrow a bit easier.

                        That was some pill from Anderson to remove Clarke. Think the Aussies have given themselves a chance if they bat well in the morning.

                          Btw, does everyone still trust the review system after Roger's dismissal?

                            Just caught a replay of Jimmy Anderson's delivery to Clarke. It was a beauty alright. He could be considered the Wasim Akram or Waqar Younis of modern cricket.

                            Ian Bell had a stinker.
                            He's a guy who gets up at six o'clock in the morning regardless of what time it is.

                              Aus not going well this morning, 3 gone in 3 overs leaving them at 114-7. Doesn't even seem to be swing causing them issues, just good bowling.

                              This test could be over rather quickly.
