    It's going to be a long day tomorrow given I have one of my two wickets for the innings already!

    Day Two


    Pickup failed to make the most of a life on the second morning as, after Lewis fluffed a chance to run him out, he edged Suifdadny behind for 2. Still 300 behind and with their openers gone, Moody and Robertson counter-attacked and forged a fine half-century stand, but were parted when Lewis came on to pick up Robertson for 41. When EC Player joined in by getting Moody - still before England had made it to three figures - the hosts were in trouble, and when he picked up his second wicket of Wood they suddenly found themselves five down and more than 240 runs behind. In the final few overs before lunch Ardley took Lewis for multiple boundaries to get England past the 100 mark, and to end a breathless session.


    Ardley was to fall without adding to his score at lunch, out to Suifdadny for 15, and it would be up to the bowlers to make up a 200-run deficit. Running hard to score quickly against the Australians' attacking field, Deen and Smithington-Smythe began to make their stand against the seamers, but once again Lewis came back on to break it by dismissing Deen for 40. Dan Wayne would go on to clean up the tail, but not before a further 69 runs were added by the final three stands. Myheart, Furball and especially Tesnan made significant, punchy contributions and got the England total up to 250, 85 runs behind.





    After tea the visitors made a shaky start. After Lewis hit 11 off Smithington-Smythe's opening over, the quick responded by snagging Burridge for 1 in his second. He was involved in the next dismissal too, taking a catch in the deep as Super completed a poor match. Lewis and Monk took the Australians' lead towards the 150 mark, but Deen struck twice to keep the match in the balance. First he caught Monk on the crease to get the lbw, before getting rid of Spark who also found Smithington-Smythe with a top-edged pull. Deen's third scalp, arguably lending England the advantage, came when Lewis offered him a return chance on 36. Stumps came with the score a mere 96/5, and the lead standing at 179.

    Australia's scorecard not working?

    14 wickets in a day, what's the pitch inspector's number?

    Looks like we threw away a nice position.

    Going to have the leading batting average at this rate, not getting out so often. Need to wrap this innings up soon though, will be over in 3 days.

    Day Three


    The morning session could not have gone better for Australia. What started as a belligerent counter-attack turned into a punishing sixth wicket stand as Loblaw and Haddin added 135 in the session. Haddin got to fifty first, the wicketkeeper getting there from 58 balls, and Loblaw followed soon after, having faced 77 deliveries. By the lunch break the lead had advanced to a formidable 314.


    The pair showed no signs of stopping in the afternoon. Both batsmen brought up outstanding centuries as they launched Australia to the highest score of the match. By the time the new ball was taken, quarter of an hour before tea, the score had passed 350, and the visitors led by 436. Haddin and Loblaw responded to the taking of the new cherry by smashing a further 20 runs by tea.


    Haddin celebrated the 300 partnership by clouting two fours off Myheart's over, raising his 150 in the process, and Loblaw joined him on reaching the milestone once the score had passed 400. The mammoth, 350-run stand was eventually broken by Wood, who hit Haddin's leg stump to dismiss him for an outstanding 167. Wood continued to be a thorn in the visitors' side, picking up Wayne for 17 and Suifdadny for 8, but it was of little consequence as the lead crossed 550. When Coco departed for a brash 13, most of the crowd's attention had come to the chance of a double-ton for Loblaw, which he would have the chance to make on the fourth morning after Player blocked out the final over.
