    Meh, he bowled better than last game, but considering Aus were bowled out for such a low score 2/70 isn't that good. Especially seeing as though one of those wickets was a tailender and the decision was dubious/wrong.

    The "bowl well wide of off to a 7-2 field with no slips" worked superbly, in that hardly anything was scored.

    @Deus: very harsh on Swann. He kept it tight, bowled a probing line on a pitch that really did nothing for him. Two wickets a just reward.

    surely verdict is a result of someone whos a little too accustomed to watching Warne wield his magic.

    He was a vital cog in bowling out Australia in adelaide on the first day, which is fantastic. Couldn't have asked for more.

    Yeah precisely. It's pretty hard to deny that we are basically in a similar position today as England was eight days ago.

    England did very well but it's still premature IMO. The hot tip: Rhino, Siddz and Dougeh will keep England to 300-320.

    Note I said he bowled well not got good figures. Why watch the game if the numbers are going to decide everything?

    Yeah I agree it's just, but it isn't "Very well, too good for them". Frankly could see Hauritz or Doherty performing just the same...

    Excellent days cricket, we were really good in all departments today, fielding was fantastic. \

    Got to bat well obviously but could not have hoped for any better out of todays play.

    Anderson's bowling is the most encouraging thing about this series so far, looks like this might be career defining tour for him.

    Yeah Swann did a good job today, not sure what more you could expect from a spinner (non Murali/Warne) on the first day of a test, bowled very few bad balls, kept the run rate down and took they key wicket.

    Wouldn't be able to keep the runs down as well as Swann did as they aren't in the same class.

    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.

    Warne himself was saying in the commentary that spinners are not expected to take wickets at Adelaide on day one, they're in the team for days 4/5 and that if he could pick up a couple of wickets, it would be a decent return

    Well all these marginals begin to add up... that's the point.
    as for.how the wickets came, I'd suggest you lost them more regularly than we did, least important part of the 3 though
