    Seriously, this guy is a danger to our chances. He should be locked in the team bus.
    I think he said something along the lines of "If we make 700 and bowl them out for 150 it's still possible to win the game", not "we will make 700 and win the game"

    The guy is just so contrary and deliberately off-beat. For instance, in Andrew Symond's book, he tells the story of last Autumn's tour and Symonds expressing his disappointment at getting dropped from the Test team. Buchanan's advice was 'quit ODI's and play Pura Cup' and focus on being a Test player. He was apparently serious too. He just goes out of his way, every damn time, to be off-beat and distinguish himself from everyone else. Whatever is obvious, he just does the opposite.

    England unable to follow up with their bowling I believe. They had a chance to get Australia all out under the follow on limit, but they blew it when Giles dropped Ponting. That was the turning point of the match I believe, and it really hurt England. This match is headed for a draw no doubt.

    was a big drop, thought so at the time. Dont think even Monty would have caught it

    Monty wouldn't have caught it, he might have actually gotten some wickets.

    If you are not going to pick Monty, you just need to pick another full time batsman instead and use Pieterson as your spinner. He's not taking a wicket and its clear you're just using him to give your fast guys a rest anyway. So might as well get a real batsman instead.

    So what? They can't find people in London who can give an impartial commentary? I mean its one thing to internally rooting for someone, but you don't have to put that in your commentary.

    I know cricinfo has been trying to be a bit more colorful in recent times, but that doesn't mean it has to be biased.

    Pietersen isn't your average part-timer and Australia are playing him as well as they're playing Giles, so really Giles' role is defunct. Really may as well shove in another batsman and tell Pietersen to bowl some more offies in the nets.

    To be fair on Giles, he very rarely drops catches, and can make good run-outs.

    Haven't watched a ball of cricket this weekend, but things look to be in England's favour at the moment, good to see Harmy seemingly bowling better while Punter just can't stop making runs.

    A typical great Gilly innings 2moro can swing this game on its head, but otherwise i reckon England will at least lead by 100 on 1st Innings.

    I think we've all got to face up, and admit that Fletcher is too pig-headed to realise that 60,000,000 people hate Giles and love Panesar.
