Missed most of yesterday due to work. Seems like the DRS system went even flakier yesterday, but is it really the DRS or the people operating it.
Khawaja: yes the on field umpire made the final call, but did the off field guy give him strong enough support. According to a mate there was fresh air visible between bat and ball.
The lbw that showed 49.9% hitting: that's the rub, benefit of the doubt. But does seem odd.
And then another outright bad onfield decision for Broad hitting middle of middle but all the reviews used up.
Well batted Clarke. Nice to see a bit of fight, but as i always say, both sides have to bat once to see if it's a good score or not. It certainly isn't a bad one, to be fair, but a lot's going to rest on whether Clarke and Smith can push on. It'll be interesting if one or two go quickly, England get tails up and Australia could still not get 400. On the other hand - it's well set up for the punchy one to get all aggressive and he could if he comes off then we could be looking at them getting 400-odd well before lunch.
Time for Captain Cook to strap on the kit and make plans for a long stay.
Next hour could be critical......
