    Even session, maybe just England's session because need to do damage early doors here at the Gabba.

    Reckon the pitch is actually playing a little bit like Cardiff in 2009.

    Sanga isn't the best off spinner in the history of cricket? News to me.

    Nah, evens. Don't think our boys have been under too much pressure from the crim bowlers, but at the same time with 86 on the board we're not threatening to run away with it just yet.

    Don't think that was anyone's session. The wicket looks excellent for batting and really doesn't look like it's giving much to the bowlers. So that being said, I definately don't think you could say it's advantage England. I reckon if the wicket stays the same around 350-400 would be par.

    GAGF. Cook's scrappy, but theres lazy elegance in his back foot play. Katich is just a zombie anteater attempting to lick his own ear whilst doing an irish jig. ie Horrid.

    If it gets some sun on it, it will quicken up maybe. Seems a bit of tennis ball bounce atm.

    Good first session. Nice and even. The dropped catch, had it been taken, would have made it easily ours.

    Yeah that's why I'd say it was Australia's session, just. Don't think England would've taken 86/2 at the start of play if they knew the pitch would play like it did, especially if you told them Cook would be one of the not out batsmen.

    The Sofa's giving the session to England. Quite decent but I think once two of the following three: Cook, KP, or Prior falls then you can kiss the 1st innings goodbye at least.

    Katich and Cook are both pretty dire technically. Lets leave it there.

    Very good session of cricket. I must say that Pietersen looks sharp today and other than the dropped catch by Doherty, he looks good.
