        Smacked the ball straight into the groin of Iwuajoku who has fallen over, 
        miraculously with the ball still caught in his scrotal area! Out!

    Vital Hundred from Pointing arguably the best batsmen on the planet.

    Great knock from Punter, England will rue dropping him on 35

    Australia's session.

    Ponting is a living legend, and Hussey can't go out. Write this one down as a draw, gentlemen.

    Chanceless session by Australia. Engalnd are going to have to find some inspiration from somewhere because Pointing and Hussey will not get themelves out.

    Fantastic century from Ponting. Obviously it's still a flat wicket, but there was plenty of pressure and some good bowling, and he was rock solid after the drop. He's simply the best batsman in the world, and his record since last Ashes is incredible. He's come away from that series with a point to prove, his captaincy has improved and he's scored 10 centuries in his last 13 tests.

    Averaging over 60 now, more centuries than any other Australian cricketer and getting better as he goes.

    Hussey has been very good too. As soon as he came in he took the right approach under the circumstances, has barely played a risky shot and left everything wide of off-stump in his first hour at the crease. Flintoff has troubled him with some good bowling, but Hussey's selection of which delivery to play has been flawless, which is where batsmen like Hayden, Gilchrist and Katich have fallen down playing Flintoff when he comes around the wicket.

    Second session Australia have won in the test anyway. If they don't lose more than one or two post-tea it'll be a decent day, and the result is still alive as long as these two stay at the crease.

    And that's where the approach of setting defensive fields and relying on accurate bowling comes undone, like it did for Australia with KP and Collingwood. Giles has actually looked a bit more threatening than people here are saying IMO, but aside from Flintoff none of the bowlers look like manufacturing a wicket. There's no significant reverse swing for whatever reason, and if England don't take a couple with the new ball it'll get tough for them to force a victory.

    OMFG Ponting ... get on him!! (not that way)

    im so proud of him.... backs against the wall... under a pretty good bowling attack who have their tails up and they were moving it about a bit...

    but yea thanks Giles... i don't think it was a sitter so yea Ponting hit it hard so i guess u earn ur luck..but should've been swallowed for sure haha... i just wish it wasn't Giles i wish it was Flintoff or something

    still a lot of work to do though before stumps... and even tomorrow....but yayyy hopefully these two bat till the second new ball

    Clarke Gilchrist Warne Lee Clark McGrath to come!!!! none of em are slouches

    Ponting is quite simply the best!

    Last week in the CM Neil Harvey was ridiculing him saying he was quite simply a good batsmen but nother better. He also went on to rubbish claims that he was 1 of our top 5 batsmen, and that he wouldn't have made it into the "Invincibles Squad". In other words, typical Neil Harvey crap. All i can say is stick that century in your pipe and smoke it Harvey!!!!!!!!

    Because your coach keeps picking inadequate players. It's your own fault.
