    Yes but Australian batsmen don't do that very often.

    I'm not saying we're great at playing on spicey pitches, but we do it more, and our bowlers certainly get more practice on pitches like this. It's their bread and butter. I'm not discounting the Aussie bowlers, but there must have been a formula that didn't give us such a good ride in Australia.

    The only way that the Earl of Twirl segment could have been a more sycophantic love-fest than that abortion of a segment was if Mark Nicholas was bowling to Andrew Symonds and, obviously, trying to **** him off at the same time.

    Utter tripe.

    Still feel confident that my $100 on Aussie is a decent option. Reckon England will get an 80-odd run first innings lead, and then Aussie will pile on 500 in the 3rd leaving Aussie's battery of spinners to clear up in the 4th.

    England seriously need to use their challenges better. Wasted both of 'em today, especially the 2nd one.

    Youre awake? Where were you in Perth?

    If I had a betfair account I'd get on frankly. Those odds in a two horse race are great when one side hasn't batted yet.

    Anyway, we shall see I suppose.

    Warne only bowled one proper delivery and it hit Jackman in the guts. The rest was a mix of slow & straight and long hops. Deliberately bowling pies to ingratiate himself with the glitterati. Obviously, Warne's after some female acquaintance of Jackman.

    Strauss needs to stand up in this innings. I know he has a hundred, but I don't think he has looked really convincing in this series thus far.

    hmm Strauss already playing balls he could leave with defensive strokes.

    Was he not watching the Australian innings?

    Yeah I would think that would be it. Can't recall it since then.

    Rhino could go well here if he hits the same lines as Perth.
