    Oh, Gilly.... Not again.

    I think that was pretty much out, too.

    Hoggard gets the wickets he deserved. Has been 2nd best bowler for England, easily.

    Both looked fair decisions, in my opinion.

    Chance for England to wrap proceedings up quickly here, might be time to give Flintoff another spell of 3-4 overs.

    ****... already I was looking forward to that. Hopefully Warne and Lee can provide some fireworks.

    Yeah, I didn't mean to imply that Ponting's wasn't - just that even though the ball jagged back a lot, I still thought he was gone. Good umpiring, IMO, and I actually think it's been very good this test so far, although Bowden's nose scratch yesterday was kinda like when you make as if to punch someone and then you run your fingers through your hair.

    Personally I think the umpring had been excellent. As you mention, Bowden's nose scratching action yesterday would've had Ponting more than a bit worried. But good decision that one, Ponting well forward, likewise with the appeal against Hussey this morning.

    Can't see Shane Warne lasting too long here! As I said, bring Flintoff on at the other end.

    Need to give Harmison another shot TBH, not Freddie.

    All of a sudden, conditions don't look that bad for bowling. IMO, it's been great batting and poor bowling that's fuelled this innings, far more so than a flat pitch. Might be ominous for the English batsmen though.

    And it looks like Freddie's going to give Harmy a shot at the tail. Interesting...

    I see he's coming on now. Don't think that's too bad a decision but I just get the feeling wayward deliveries from Harmison against Shane Warne could be dispatched and prove costly. I certainly hope not for Harmison's own confidence.

    Haha, that's it Harmison, show us something... A bit of aggression with a ping at the stumps there.

    Considering what the ball is doing, and the fact Harmy needs to get into the swing of things, it is a good idea. Thats why I said he should put Harmy on.

    I think Pointing and Hussey are class above the rest of the Aussie batsmen and made the English bowling (bar Harmison who was terrible) look worse than perhaps it was. Possibly this tour could hinge on England finding away to remove those two as the rest of the top 7 can be vunerable and 4 of them being on the slide.
