    Dear Hussey and Haddin,

    Don't just wait for them to get you out you ****wits. Because eventually if you let them settle in and keep bowling these pearlers they'll get one.

    Score a run you bastards.

    Regards,
    Athlai.

    He looks a better bat then most of those above him in the batting order currently. The McCullum of Australian cricket.

    Why are you conflating excellent bowling with bad form of a batsmen? The mere fact he has stayed out there so long without really any genuine chances, shows he is in good nick...

    No, i agree, i think Haddin's been solid on the defense and played some lovely shots. The quality of the bowling has made him look poor.

    It's the first hour. They are just knocking the shine off before getting stuck in.

    If there is any justice Hussey will be run out 99 backing up.

    If he was in bad form he would've had a brain explosion and holed out within 10 balls of coming in. Good form may not be the right word, but his innings has been superbly controlled and he's deserves the credit for being able to stick around with Hussey. If he's still around when we get past your total, then we may see him come out of his shell.

    Nottingham (3rd Test: England v New Zealand at Nottingham, Jun 5-8, 2008 | Cricket Scorecard | ESPN Cricinfo) was the kind of conditions swing bowlers fantasise over. Agreed there's a little bit there today, and it's not a road by any stretch, but the control is great to see - today may finally be the day when Jimmy sheds the tag of being anodyne in any conditions other than stereotypically Mancunian ones.

    Haddin has looked a lot more solid than Hussey this morning.

    Nope, the distinct lack of foot movement, and the fact he was just throwing his hands at the ball for the first 45 minutes is what made him look poor. Looked better in the last 15 minutes, playing some nice shots, but he looked god awful for the first three quarters of an hour.

    Shine should have been knocked off about 15-20 minutes ago IMO.
