Broad is off the field – this is looking ominous for us now
SHOULD HAVE BOWLED FIRST
I think it is still a valid argument as the key factor in bowling is the weather and morning sessions often have the best bowling conditions. Bowling first is the only way to guarantee bowling in the morning and the forecast was for cloud yesterday, it did prove difficult for us. However, it would have been a defensive move to avoid batting so on balance it was the right call.Posted 4 years ago

@bbctms This is the worst Australian collapse since Helen Daniels fell down that flight of stairs in Neighbours.

One of these Australian batsmen has a solid opener’s technique with a straight bat and good footwork. The other is Phil Hughes. #AshestheotherjonvSubscriber
getting dangerous. Not necessarily just the score, I’d still back us in a one innings game with Australia batting last and Swann bowling, let alone in a one innings game with a 30-40 run headstart.
But just the cussedness of a last innings stand turns the bowlers attitude round from ‘we’re doomed’ to ‘….maybe, if…..’

You heard it here first (not that I take any pleasure in my prediction coming true)Posted 4 years ago
I guess the weather is brighter and warmer today and the swing is going as the day moves on? If so, when we *do* get the stubborn sod out we *SHOULD* rattle up a few with our openers.
True enough, it is a bit worrying to think what your admittedly quality batsman will do in similar/improving conditions…Posted 4 years ago
You bloody ripper young Agar, a little bit of joy and happiness, and dare I say it, hope on an otherwise disappointing morning. We may even get a first innings lead yet amazingly!
This is why we love Test cricket isn’t it, the twists and turns of fortune, damn it’s good! 😀Posted 4 years agoCaptainFlashheartMember
Just in case anyone’s never seen it!
Cricket: As explained to a foreigner…
You have two sides, one out in the field and one in. Each man that’s in the side that’s in goes out, and when he’s out he comes in and the next man goes in until he’s out. When they are all out, the side that’s out comes in and the side thats been in goes out and tries to get those coming in, out. Sometimes you get men still in and not out.
When a man goes out to go in, the men who are out try to get him out, and when he is out he goes in and the next man in goes out and goes in. There are two men called umpires who stay all out all the time and they decide when the men who are in are out. When both sides have been in and all the men have out, and both sides have been out twice after all the men have been in, including those who are not out, that is the end of the game!

Cunning tactics from Clarke and Lehman eh? Send in a sandbagger at 11, stick a tail on it and call it a weasel!
England bowlers lost the plot for an hour or so, as did Cook as Captain you have to say, allowed 2 batsman to find their feet and get set, may just prove a match turning session, maybe… To be honest, this is the position Australia should be in, but with another 4-5 wickets in hand to capitalise further, we shouldn’t have needed such an unlikely miracle to eke out a lead…Posted 4 years ago
