    Right then - since image tags seem to have been fixed, I'll go off my phone.
    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.

    England won the toss and elected to bat first on a surprisingly batting friendly wicket. The visitors had a poor start in the field, the opening bowlers being seen off before Fertang was put down by Player off Burridge's bowling after an hour. The England openers progressed steadily through much of the session, until Fertang fell for 37 against Wayne in the final over before lunch.

    From 83/1 the spinners began to trouble England in the afternoon. Lewis bowled pickup for 37, before Moody lost his off stump to Stephen half an hour later. Wood's 33 from 41 provided some aggression, but not the lengthy stay that was called for, and when he lost his wicket to Burridge England had stumbled to 170/4. Robertson remained, raising his side's 200 along with his own unbeaten fifty shortly before the tea break.

    Robertson and Ardley's partnership carried on well into the evening. The second new ball came and went for the visitors without success, and Ardley's fifty (from 83 balls) was brought up along with the hundred stand. As the score passed 300, Robertson's hundred became the defining innings of the day, and he returned to the pavilion on 117*. A dominant session for England saw them finish the day on 333/4.

    Myheart had early problems in Australia's reply. The quick conceded 26 off his opening 4 overs, including a huge Lewis six, before dropping a simple chance to dismiss Burridge as soon as Deen replaced him. The allrounder was, however, able to dismiss Lewis for 18, and the visitors took tea on 56/1.

    Burridge had made a valuable if chancy half ton when Force dismissed him lbw, and from there Australia began to make solid progress towards their opponent's score, Super chipping in with his own half ton and helping the third wicket stand to remain unbeaten at the close.
