    I really can't see why... look at what this team has done. Sure there has been a bit of help from the pitch, but it takes the bowlers to hit those right areas; and on a batting side of things, well the 1st innings total speaks for itself.

    Watson is not needed unless 2 spinners are played.

    Is that the first session we've won?

    Credit to Collingwood particularly. I think it's obvious he isn't the most naturally gifted batsman & looked all at sea to Clark before lunch, but he's hung in there with sensible, low-risk cricket.

    - As featured in The Independent.

    "The committee discussed the issue of illegal bowling actions, and believed that there are a number of bowlers currently employing suspect actions in international cricket, and that the ICC's reporting and testing procedures are not adequately scrutinising these bowlers."
    - Even the ICC's own official press release thinks things must change

    A few close shaves for both Pietersen & Collingwood that session, luckily for them they didn't quite go to hand, so credit must go to them.

    I was really impressed by Clark in the first and second innings. This guy deserved more wickets.

    I hope Pietersen and Collingwood are able to bat through to the end of the day without getting out because there is still a whole day to play and I want to see some real fight from these guys.

    If they can bat out this session, then there just might be a slight hope for a draw.

    KP looking to get after Warne here. Not really what is needed IMHO, but could be entertaining while it lasts. & Warney clearly not too happy with it either!

    They must be kicking themselves for batting with a lot more purpose 1st time around. TBH they looked like a bunch of sitting in the 1st innings.
    Beware the lollipop of mediocrity. Lick once and you suck forever...

    Well, it is making it look a little more respectable, but its still a gubbing in anybodies language though.
