    Not everything about being too good is about getting wickets, they couldn't score off him apart from a couple of overs straight after tea.
    Nah I disagree, if England were in the same position I could easily see Hauritz or Doherty producing similar results. He did a good job, but nothing outstanding. His economy was just the same as all the other bowlers. It was Anderson who was the chief destroyer today.

    Bit of swing makes the new ball crucial for Aus tomorrow

    Agree with that, they need at least 3 wickets before lunch or the game is going away from them.

    as for.how the wickets came, I'd suggest you lost them more regularly than we did, least important part of the 3 though
    Yeah, they add up to you being in a marginally better position in Brisbane than we are in here. Again the way the wickets fell matters exactly not at all.

    Can't believe I'm actually arguing this ******** point. This is what CC does to you.

    Oh wait, they've dropped their top bowler. Hmmm.
    Who was that again?

    So the idea its a mirror image of Brisbane is wrong...

    A fair way I'd say. If England are rolled for 200 tomorrow though it's not so bad.

    A very slight difference, in that Australia have an extra 11 runs and a few new-ball overs left. But it's essentially the same.

    Oh fine, it's not a precise mirror image of Brisbane.

    The comparison remains valid however.

    England fell way short of a par score in Brisbane and Australia fell way short today, that is pretty much all you can say, tells us nothing about what will happen in the next 4 days.

    Meh, we were underpar by about 150 is guess, tops. You're looking at 200+
    As for the hattrick point it was just trying to point out you're liable to losing wickets quite consistrntly throughout your innings. But so were we in Bris, as I said it was a throw away comment and less important than the fact you're significantly more.underpar than we were

    England were 200+ under par because that's the lead they conceded. We'll see how under par this score is in a couple of days.
