    Just knew after KP went we would be seeing Oz bat today.

    England just gotta hope this is a low scoring game.

Maybe if the forecasters are right about the weather, then we're better off having 30 overs at them tonight rather than prodding around for another 20 runs and different conditions to bowl in tomorrow.

    But this is feeling ever more like 1989. A lot of big names living off past glories coming badly unstuck against what's supposed to be the worst Aus side to tour since the 19th century

    This is the one weakness of the DRS. Hawkeye says it's hitting, it's out FFS. Wtf is this umpire's call bollocks all about? Really annoys me.

    When KP returns he will be the banana..

    Hate the umpire call part of the review system. Hawkeye is at the point now where it's ridiculously accurate, and so if the ball is hitting the stumps, it's out. The review shouldn't consider what the umpire has given, it should consider it as a pure appeal for a wicket. That was pitching in line, and hitting the stumps. It's out.

    NZ at Lord's. Otherwise you have a point that he hasn't taken as many as, aesthetically, you think he should

    Aren't there flood lights at TB? Are is there some rule about not using them in tests or something equally dim?

    This logic also really annoys me. It doesn't have to be perfect to be the best way of predicting the ball's path that there is - including the umpire's eyes.
