    Cook's gone early in the reply. Got cramped with a short ball, and it somehow rolled back onto his stumps by the look of it. Not ideal start to the tour for Cooky boy. And a nightwatchman's come in, Jimmy A.

    Cook out early? Who would have thought?

    There'll be more than one disappointment I'd say. More than likely not all from the one side.

    The first of what should be many failures for Cook.

    I dunno - would say those figures are not terrible - all got a wicket and nobody went around the park.

    Beer to get KP IMO.

    Not sure I'm with you on that one. I think he'll have a pretty decent tour, his strengths on the pull and cut and generally off the back foot should see that he's alright, once he gets in tune with the pitches. Backing him to go well this series.

    Would say they were a pretty solid set of figures, not poor. Everyone was reasonably economical, no-one went round the park, all got a wicket and nearly 20 overs under their belts, seems a good enough workout. Yes Broad looks like he enjoyed the better day.

    No there not bad all round, Anderson went at just over 2 an over, with a wicket,Broad 3 wickets at 2.6.Swanny got a wicket at the end at 3 an over.I hope that Tremlett gets a game next match because I feel he could be a bigger threat than Finn, but we'll see.

    Yes, I think if Cook can get a good score in these warm up matches,it will set him up for a good series.

    Hope North gets out early in the next innings as well so he can make his 1 in 5 century during the ashes

    Swann will do fine, except for the 2 categories of extremes on this forum. No he probaby isn't going to take 40 wickets at 25 and he is probably going to do well if you judge him purely on his influence on the match rather than his statistical summary at the end of the tour. If he takes 20-30 wickets at an average in the low-mid 30s he would in all likelyhood have done a fairly good job given the pitches that we should expect to see in Australia.
    Tendulkar = the most overated player EVER!!
    Beckham = the most overated footballer EVER!!
    Vassell = the biggest disgrace since rikki clarke!!

    This.

    I am expecting around 20 wickets from him,no more than that.Be nice if he does though,but in those wickets i am also expecting a couple of spells that turn matches/the series in England's favour just as he did in 09 in England.

    Having said that Johnson is just as likely to do it for Australia amongst his pies that will also come down at various times during the 5 tests.Just think England will edge it though.

    I don't know about that. From everything I've heard his issue is dodgy technique leading to edges and the bounce here should only exacerbate that.
