    Christ Agar is looking a little poor now isn't he. Smith has turned some here, great bowling display. Aussies dominating the day now. That said if we get over 320 I'd be happy enough, Swann will spin it from ball one here.

    Aussies day by a long way but if we can somehow get 400 i'd be more than happy.

    Lets face it at 28-3 we'd have been delighted with 283-7

    I wouldn't bother with him bowling. Keep the one who turns it as the bowler and have him bat 3.

    He didn't quite give it up as such. He decided to take a break from it because he felt his head was too clouded with different advice from too many different sources. His idea was to focus on his batting for the second half of last domestic season and then spend this offseason really working on his bowling, starting from scratch and developing something more natural in order to return next season as an allrounder. The Australian selectors threw a spanner in the works though by telling him he wouldn't be spending the offseason working on his leggies as he'd be touring India as a reserve batsman.

    Commentators called it a flipper but I'd like to get a better look at it; I thought it was a top spinner live and then missed the replay.
