    Damn, we're fast approaching the point of no return in this game.

    Nice to see Siddle take 3 today. Hilfenhaus looks as innocuous as ever.

    Prior! Wtf was that?!

    Prior, another top edge. I dare him to get his head in line with a short ball.

    England has 4 50 scores but no 100 (so far). Has the wicket had something in it all day? It seems to have settled down atm apart from the odd variable bounce.

    Na, an hour or so ago we looked like we could get right back into the game, but now even a slight chance is starting to fade away...

    It's not a minefield, but it's very tough to score on when you bowl tight on a good length.

    Australia basically gifted us a 150 run head start yesterday evening by bowling so terribly.

    It seems that enough balls do enough when put in a good area to cause throuble. Combine that with the difficulty to score and our bowlers current ability to bowl tight; this lead looks massive.

    Jeez, Prior looks like he has forgotten how to bat. What is he doing? The game's not won yet.

    That's 'the way he plays'

    It seems pretty irresponsible to me. Although if he is that badly out of form, I suppose the best way to find some form would be to 'play his style'. Still, if I were an English fan I'd prefer if he showed some graft and tried his best to ensure that he walks off unbeaten at the close of play today.

    I do, but I was offering a predictable and inadequate justification from the England camp for a ridiculous shot from Prior to get himself out.
