    Not really any pace or bounce for Monty yet, might well struggle.

    Encouraging for me was Symonds` back-foot cut-bash-whallop thing. Kept it down, after getting out playing it in Perth.

    I needed a Lee five-for, Symonds ton and something from Harmison. Only got the Harmison bit right. :S

    I`m changing the laws of life, but if Symonds makes 100, I`ll see that as 2/3 of my debt wiped off.

    I think Taylor and Slats are spot on. Freddy's field to Monty is far too defensive for mine.

    Yeah, Monty being absolutely milked in that last over. 8 off it I think.

    Might even be the kind of pitch where Colly's little wobblers could be effective. There's still a bit of something for the seamers.

    Hoggard to go for 10 this over.

    EDIT: So I was very wrong. But my point is that I think he`ll struggle in this next spell, as Symonds looks to up the pace.

    Symonds starting to look a lot more solid than earlier, Hayden still struggling though - particularly against Hoggard.

    Shot! by Symonds there.

    Brumby working nicely (AFL reference).

    Surely no one would begrudge Symonds an MCG ton...

    Why isn't Panesar bowling?

    Hoggard has been largely ineffectual for a while, and Warne showed that there is something in it for the spinners.

    50 for Symonds.

    Good innings, looking better and better as it goes on.

    Symonds FIFTY!

    Superb innings under huge pressure. Can`t ask any more of him, batted well when Australia were in trouble. YESSSSSSSSSSS

    50 for Symonds. Really good work, and under considerable pressure, coming in when the English bowlers' tails were up and in difficult conditions for batting. Struggled a great deal early, too. I know a lot of people are sure he won't make it in test cricket, and it's hard to argue otherwise given his stats, but IMO he's got a lot of character and I like seeing him do well. Keep going, Symmo.

    Hopefully a Hayden century coming up soon. A bit scratchy at times, but has worked hard, and his level of concentration has been excellent.
