If you are English ( and I doubt it very much ), you have obviously had the frontal lobotomy & become an australian. :lol: :lol:

352 Test wickets from 87 Tests now, only had 343 wickets from 86 Tests beforehand.
Wonder where those last 9 wickets came from ?
England have dropped their slow and straight bowler Ali for the 2nd test along with injured Jimmy Anderson .

They are have been replaced by Leach and West Indian Archer .

I think he'll actually be right but facts are they will look at the pitch before deciding on final XI.

So you think you can produce a wicket to help swing and now you don't understand that the pitch will definitrly affect your selection.

The goal post change does have more relevance to likely losses of play though.

I don't know that stat, just that Sydney loses the 2nd most amount of full days play. Manchester is first.

Great 2nd day off test after the typical english summer ruins day one!
Aussies should of bowled the poms out for less than 200, if they caught better.
Looks like 4 days will be enough to decide this test match, provided the POMS bowling as good as the aussies and day 3

I'm still not sure bowling first was correct, but you'd take all out for 258.

Still even really, so Australia will need to bat 4 sessions more to take control and hopefully make 350 or so in the process.

As we know, anything can happen in tests, so easier said than done.

I think bowling first gave them the beat chance of getting the win. Talk is that the pitch will flatten out and be easier batting from now on.

With the weather today, draw looks the most likely result. Another whole day probably being lost. Meaning a serious collapse will be needed for either team to push for win.

Broad should present Warner eith some bunny ears. How good was Archer's first spell in teat cricket, unfortunately Bancroft wasn't good enough to get an edge on it.

I only watched up until half hour into second session, was about 3/100 then. All 3 results still possible.
