    It'll turn later in the match and probably get a bit uneven. Panesar, anyone?
    The pitch seems a bit slow to me which is restricting strokeplay and making getting an edge to carry behind the wicket very difficult.

    Does it quicken up on days 2 & 3?

    I think its 440 runs in the first innings as average. And yea, Panesar will be missed. Giles to score less than 15 runs and last for less than 40 balls as well. Nothing against Giles, he's a good option when there is nothing else, but you cannot take 20 Aussie wickets unless you play your best bowlers, and Giles is not it.

    Dunno, doesn't seem all that slow to me. 440 runs is average in the first innings.

    That's Stuart Clark's 29th wicket in only 7 tests

    Gilchrist taking most balls down by his ankles looks slow to me.

    I also bet on Australia to score less than 410 in their 1st innings at Brisbane. I think I will quit whilst I'm behind.

    Yeah I think it's a bit slow too. I imagine it might have something to do with the fact that it's a lot cooler in Adelaide than it usually is at this time of year. It's the hottest and driest major city in the country, but it's 25 and mild all week this week. So the pitch might be a bit different to normal. Anyway, I'm not sure if it will quicken up or not, I guess it's possible with the sun on it. Should be docile for the quicks throughout anyway, until the bounce plays up.

    Eight overs on the trot for McGrath. Guess he's fit to go then.

    Think he was coming off but Bucknor wouldn't let Warne bowl because he'd been off the field. But yeah he must be ok

    Will be interesting to see how he backs up for his 2nd and (hopefully) 3rd spell.

    Have both teams made a mistake then by not picking the 2nd spinner. The groud looks quite lush so there doesn't look like there will be much reverse around. Could be a long game for the quickies.

    I think it's more problematic for England, given that Shane Warne is a pretty good bowler. To pick MacGill Australia would need to have picked five bowlers or dropped Clark or Lee, which is a pretty tough choice to make.

    When Adelaide falls apart it tends to be very hard to play the quicks as well, because there's uneven bounce and so on. In 03/04 for instance against India it came apart pretty badly on the fourth day and it was Agarkar who took 6 wickets, even though Kumble and Tendulkar were turning it heaps. I don't think it matters too much what sort of bowlers you pick, provided that your seamers can bowl straight and you have a quality spinner.
