    700 for Warney! Clean bowling Strauss, fair way to get it.

    Really great ball he got it with too. One of his best in recent times.

    Funny that Lee's getting the breaks today and has his best figures for the Ashes. His first spell was one of his poorer ones for the whole series and he came out of it okay. Second spell before tea was very good, though.

    McGrath was just unplayable this morning. I really thought England did pretty well to get to lunch safely, and before those two quick wickets they were ahead post-lunch too. Australia's session in the end, though.

    Would be very happy indeed if we could scrape to 250 from here. Sub-200 well on the cards though.

    The Sky commentators have been debating over whether Flintoff made the right decision at the toss. Holding and Atherton said they would have chosen to bowl, Hussain, Botham and Gower would've batted. I personally would've chosen to bat at the time, but with hindsight I'm not so sure now. I can't see it getting any more favourable for bowling in the next few days than it has been so far today.

    Australia are maybe even unlucky to have them 4/118.

    And as I say that Gilchrist misses a sitter of a stumping. McGrath could have at least two the way he bowled this morning.

    EDIT: It was ****ing Pietersen!

    Having watched Botham on Late Night Legends last night and having watched Flintoff this series there really is no comparison between them (with the bat anyway)

    Chris Read is gone. Why not put KP up at 3 or 4, at least he will have a better chance to express himself while batting.

    At first I thought England made the mistake of batting first, but seeing the spin, I bet Monty Panesar is enjoying it, even though ironically his team is struggling at 6/135.

    And it is typical, I pop down to the shops to get something and it happens (Warne's 700th). Does anybody think that Australia would have had similar problems had they batted first?

    Yeah I do actually. I think the first session would have been similar to the first session of the '05 Ashes at Lords. Gilchrist and Hussey would then have gotten Australia to somewhere near 300.

    Mahmood, Harmison..... Clark, Warne...
    Ponting, Hussey...... Bell, Collingwood....

    Somehow I don't think so, no.

    KP should be up at 4 again. He seemed to have lost form earlier so the move down the order was smart, but he's their best batsman and should be moved back up to 4 asap.

    Yeah it does happen though. Don't know about Gilchrsit, but Hussey is the man I bank on and playing a solid 60, or 70 or even more.

    Harmison's a spinner?
