    Generally, to be given out caught, the batsman's supposed to have hit it with his bat.

    I'm still trying to figure out how Langer got bowled and how Bell managed to edge a dead straight ball heading over off stump. Anyway nice to see a pitch with some pace and bounce, somewhat irritating that Cook and Bell got out in such predictable ways again. I guess Cook wanted to take over Tresco's weakness of edging wide-ish full balls whilst he was away.

    Not really Collingwood's sort of pitch this, but it should be Geraint's type of pitch - so if he can't perform on this there really is no hope for him. I'm expecting at least one of KP and Flintoff to get out stupidly trying to hook or pull a short ball.

    Langer went into his shell before lunch and Bell backed away a touch.

    That's true! The eventual result of the match kind of makes you forget how good England did against the Aussies in the 1st innings at Lords.

    As I was unable to watch most of the days play today and could only listen to it on the radio i might be a little inaccurate. But did Jones drop 1 or 2 catches today? And was one that of Hussey when he was in early?

    Isn't it time that the English team just picks the best keeper , Read, and be done with Jones. If he is in their for his batting, it is nothing to be impressed by and I am sure Read could do just as good a job with the bat as Jones is doing at the moment.

    English on top.

    Jones did indeed mess up a few, but he was also great in some other catches and aspects of `keeping. I don`t believe Read would do a better job tbh.

    When I was watching, I never saw any dropped catches, he did fumble one that Hussey got close to though

    All in all I think his keeping's been very good in this series, and every series this year tbh. As his batting's declined, his keeping's improved, unfortunately he doesn't seem to be able to do both well at once.

    Must have cried then, what with Panesar's average not edging up to the mid 30s.

    He had to have two goes at catching Symonds off Paneser, but edges from full blooded cut shots can be hard when you're standing up, and he got it in the end.

    I hope D Fletcher has learned what Matthew Engel once wrote in Wisden " no one has a monopoly of cricket wisdom" Everyone else in England wanted Monty picked long before now and having not seen the highlights yet I'd like to know - did they show Fletcher's face when Monty took his fifth wicket? A good day, but didn't SA not bowl out Australia for a similar score on this ground last year and end up fighting to save
    the game? We need a good first innings lead and it is about time the two Andrews and Jones did something. Colly and KP can't do it ALL!!
    Ian Botham, Freddie Flintoff, Kevin Pietersen, Brian Laudrup, Gazza and Daniela Hantuchova....a fan of you all FOREVER!!!
    Can't wait to see Australia field a crap leg-spinner like Hollland or Hohns again.....
    Congratulations to Daniela Hantuchova on her 3rd career title....
    Bob Woolmer 1948-2007..farewell to the best coach England never had...

    good words from Engel, for the rest he's a tool. (development of cricket worldwide)
    stoked to see Panesar taking 5, really like a youtube movie from that 5r, so I can learn a bit, wish I could watch more international cricket.

    Go England.

    Sure. Let England win them now, and Aussies reclaim them two years later.
