    Swann out.
    Beware the lollipop of mediocrity. Lick once and you suck forever...

    Hilfenhaus finally has another wicket, when was his last one again? Swanneh gone, should really be declaring TBH.

    Well with Swann departing that one's safe, for now. Something to aim for at Sydney.

    Not happy about us losing wickets, I wanted to get my head down in the afternoon session

    Trott clearly not impressed with that. The mono-teapot was on show.

    Don't see why, there's over half the game left. Keep going until they bowl us out.

    And here was me under the impression that you should leave balls 9 feet in the air.

    Ever the entertainer, Swanny.
    Every 5 years we have an election and have to decide who are the least obnoxious out of all the men. Then one gets in and they age really quickly. Which is always fun to watch.

    If you can't improvise a shot to a ball that's 9 feet in the air when you've got a lead of 400, when can you do it?

    Taylor looks a very good prospect, but personally I'd be in favour of Morgan or if you're looking at impressive domestic form, then James Hildreth is in great form, has matured as a batsman and is at a good age to be in line for selection, imo.
    Taylor has the talent of Morgan and the runs scoring capability of Hildreth. Should be front of the queue by some distance.

    KP, 2nd dig at Perth. Last one before that was 3rd ball of the series.

    Nasser laying into the Aussie selectors, and also a lot of the CW 'play 4 pacer' brigade by proxy

    In terms of runs margin, Brisbane 1928, where we won by 675 runs, Australia made 66 all out chasing the target of 742 to win!

    Of course that game at the Oval in 1938 when Len Hutton scored 364 and Australia made a combined total of 324 in their two innings (201 and 123) although the Don was absent in both innings. England won by an innings and 579 runs.

    Trott going more expansive in his strokeplay now, good to see.

    Tremlett will like that reverse swing when he bowls.

    Taylor has impressed with the Lions, but by and large has scored runs against bowling attacks in the CC Division Two, which doesn't equate to what Hildreth has achieved in Division One in the last couple of seasons.

    I like Taylor, but don't think he should be heading up the queue right now.
