    I actually doubt you will see Henriques bowl that much tbh. McGrath, Lee, Bracken & Clark will do the bulk of the bowling, and MacGill, Casson & Hauritz will get a few short spells also.

    The color of immortality, nature and envy - you are truly a unique person. While clearly the color of nature, you also symbolize rebirth, fertility and hope in the world. On the other side of the spectrum, a natural aptitude to money with green coming to signify money and possibly even *********!

    first time i've seen Henriques since the under-19 world cup final and the bloke looks very good with the willow. Would like to see him bowl 2moro but its unlikley i guess.

    For England the form of the bowlers continue to be a worry.

    Before lunch, it was really, really hot, but after lunch it cooled down a lot and there was a bit of cloud cover. But yeah, in general it was a pretty poor performance from England, and no bowler looked as if he was going to take a whole load of wickets. If their 6 best bowlers can't bowl out a state team in a day, something's wrong. Their fielding was pretty pedestrian too, a few hard chances were put down, and there were quite a few misfields.

England will win in Australia again this winter as they are a better side which they have shown this summer. 3-0 doesn't lie girls.

    Not spectacular. In the first session, someone edged an attempted pull shot, and it was a genuine chance, if a little hard, as Jones had to dive down the leg side, but he missed it altogether and it went for four. Everything else was okay though, but he did juggle a few takes.

    I remember Australia losing to Bangladesh and Somerset prior to the 2005 Ashes and winning the first test. They drew with Essex later on. While I am worried about England's form and I don't dismiss the warmups you can't really take too much from them.

    True, when was the last time England did well in their warm ups anyways? Lost to board Presidents XI in india, Lost to the Pakistan A side in Pakistan and i believe lost to the SA A side the winter before that. They're probably only going to add to their collection.
    Tendulkar = the most overated player EVER!!
    Beckham = the most overated footballer EVER!!
    Vassell = the biggest disgrace since rikki clarke!!

    crap, Henriques out, was hoping he'd carve Harmy & Hoggy all over the shop, and in turn, gain shock selection for the gabba test

    Play resumes after a rain delay. 17 overs lost for the day. Although it was unlikely for England to bat twice, they definitely won't now, unless they are forced to follow on.
