    I'm enjoying it a lot more than I expected, but it'd be much more exciting if the game had started this morning.

    I still think England's bowlers will bail them out even if they do stuff it up a bit from here.

    Pity it wasnt a no ball as Prior looks absolutely mentally gutted by the Aussies

    Anyway, much better display by Oz today and with any luck at all Eng would be close to being all out by now

    Shame they were so inept yesterday - reminds me of the Lords test from last year where Oz could never catch up after a horrid couple of sessions

    Still

    Yes.

    For around a centimetre's worth of leg-stretch from which he gained no real advantage, Johnson produced good play which deserved to be rewarded. ****house rule, for mine.

    Dunno if it was just the angle, but the light looked well bad when we got a close up on Athers just then

    So what is it for you, foot on the line (as per the Johnson case) and it is fine, but over it and it is a no-ball? Sorry, but I don't think over all these years I hadn't read what your views on the subject, and thus I would of been able to recall them.

    You have to have the line somewhere. If you moved it up 5cm then bowlers would just aim to land their foot 5cm further forward.

    Holding on Sky comms said it best: If you don't like having wickets taken off you for a no-ball, then don't bowl any no-balls.
