    After Ash Giles's "attack" when bowling to Sachin on our last but one tour to India the umps can no-ball bowlers for a persistent negative line. Is Warney running them close?

    Anywhoo, I'm not too worried about the run-rate, summats up with Mcgrath, and I think Colly and KP are waiting to feast on a tiring first-line attack and Clarke and Pontings bowling.
    Yeah, McGrath doesn't seem to be right...England still have to bowl well though, I think winning this game rests on them coming out firing after this innings is closed and taking some early wickets. If they bowl like they did in Brisbane it'll be a draw at best for them, but if they've improved it could be interesting. Australia's fourth innings will be difficult given the wicket's supposed to take some spin byt then...although England have picked Giles again so...I'd angle for the draw at this stage, but England can prove me wrong with some good bowling first up. I'd actually like to see Harmison bowl well after Brisbane - I must be getting soft in my old age.

    we got to be wary.. stupid shots can = wickets... and our batsmen could be tired like Englands.. when they fielded for so long

    wouldn't it be a treat if Gilly does well on this wicket... :O he is one man that can make the RR so much that a result is always possible..

    also who knows how this wicket will go in the later days... when Australia bats... could be uneven bounce ... or Warne might get more grip and run through England

    Think he meant same innings.

    It has been great batting from Collingwood and Pietersen. They seem to really complement each other. Great stuff to watch.

    I bet Ponting wishes he could call on MacGill right now.

    It is terrible bowling, by now wouldn't have noticed KP isn't going to have a crack at it? He hasn't given one chance in about a session of last night + today.

    We give them cricket, and this is what they do with it.

    Tut-tut.

    Also, I know he's old and all, but by now surely Warne should have tried the wrongun.
