    I didn't get to see Ponting I more saw Haddin having a few words. I am sure that it was just cold hearted calculated sledging designed to throw Strauss off his game tomorrow.

    Proudly against the bring back Bennett movement since he is injury prone and won't last 5 days.

    Then why did you say "I wouldn't be so sure if he keeps looking so horrifyingly bad". You either think his bad form is due to his batting position or you don't

    haha...soft.

    Well England will be leaving this Test 1-0 up. Another ****ing pathetic performance I had to endure in the last couple of years, I don't know why I even follow this team anymore tbh, probably trying to convince myself that it will turn around but it never does.

    Lucky you never saw any Aussie tests from February 1984 to Jan 1989. Painful doesnt begin to describe. We couldnt even beat NZ! Hadlee or no Hadlee its still NZ FFS!

    Haha I reckon. FFS 245 isn't great but it's not 88 not out and even then the game was a long, long, long way from over.

    exactly reading this thread feels they were shot out for 45 not 245.

    Yeah so that's essentially saying he would have bad form (for other reasons) irrespective of his batting position, in which I would agree.
