    I call bull****. Shouldn't be punished for waiting to see who's batting first before predicting, particularly given the 2nd question.

    Yeah fair enough, I misread that post about the cut off point. Happy to continue if allowed...

    Tomorrow's Questions for those who remain:

    Question 3: Will Shane Watson be the first Australian wicket to fall?

    Question 4: Will any one Australian batsman have exceeded Bell's 76 by close of play on day 2?
