    Bravo channel nine, the most one-sided day's play in a test in ages but "we're not going anywhere. News after play". Back in Perth both sides are getting rolled cheap and they cut to the news.

    India will get bowled out twice <150 in the first Test, as always, having gone in without playing an FC game.

    Well played Strauss.

    He almost looks back to his best after a frenetic start. Hes started to leave really well and wait for the bad ball. Quality opener and captain.

    I have to feel sorry for Haddin, for some of the crap bowled wide of leg stump. But deadset, unless a miracle happens and Australia win, surely the selectors the selectors have to resign en masse.

    Everything to play for at Sydney to level it (assuming England finish the win here), Ponting won't take losing his third series lightly.
    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.

    Siddle's big heart vs Hilf's pressure building. I think Hilf's pressure building annoys me just a bit more.

    This series is different to others though. A draw (with England retaining the Ashes) is basically just as bad.

    Providing England close out this match, I'd actually prefer we lose in Sydney (and badly) in the hope some changes might take place. I really don't want us to dominate in Sydney because it will gloss over some of the serious flaws shown by this team.
