    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.

    Clark is a gun! Both the openers gone. I told you that Clark shouldn't be dropped. 2/5 after 5 overs. Amazing player. MacGill is good but you can't drop a player in this magnificent form!

    Another point I believe is that when Australia arn't taking wickets they can keep the runrate down. Something they couldn't do in 2005 and something england won't be able to do now.

    As I say Cook goes caught behind

    Beautifully bowled. Bugger. What did Dave say? 85-4 at lunch? Always too much of an optimist, that boy.

    Healy's been consistently chastising Cook for not going after the balls pitched up. Then goes "one of the greatest set-ups" when Coook edges a drive.

    Turned the TV off now and will comeback later.

    Typical England, only they know how to throw it away on a good batting pitch. You may as wel;l have bowled first.

    England have been caught out a little bit by the fact that the wicket is a bit slow, but really this is still a 400+ pitch, it just requires a little bit more concentration. Clark has bowled extremely well too. I think he's put to bed all the accusations of only being good on lively wickets with his last two performances.

    Strange that his FC average is about 30. He's looked like a much better bowler than that during his test career so far.

    Anyway, if England lose another one before lunch they're in massive trouble.

    Have to say Warney's bald spot's not looking any smaller. Come on Advanced Hair Studios, raise your game.

    I think they will be doing better buisness this winter with England fans pulling their hair out
