    Nice to see England fans gleefully accepting Watson's innings now that the Ashes are gone, hope this ushers in a dominant form run though, he is a special batsmen when in form
    There are two colours in my head

    Watson's innings has sparked outrage

    Nick Hoult ‏@NHoultCricket 46s
    Security at the Oval has been increased following a threat from Fathers4Justice to spray the pitch with acid. Police investigating
    Indians can't bowl - Where has the rumour come from as I myself and many indian friends arwe competent fast bowlers ?

    With the English bid I said: Let us be brief. If you give back the Falkland Islands, which belong to us, you will get my vote. They then became sad and left

    He actually said that the blow he took was a blessing in disguise - he was so busy concentrating on his footwork right after getting hit that he didn't really have time/space to be nervous about the 90s.

    I'm expecting another batting day, perhaps a bit more turn and less movement, but the same thing as yesterday essentially, by day 3 Lyon should really be getting some help from the pitch though.

    I'm not so sure, bit of moisture around and a bit more humid - might do a bit. Forecast is a for an on-off day also, which is never in the batters favour.

    Yeah, it should swing more today, which is good news for the side with 307 for 4 on the board. You can easily see England losing quick wickets batting in overcast conditions later in the day. Not that they've needed overcast conditions to do that all summer.

    Looking forward to this bouncer masterclass, the one clip we saw, with Strauss serving tennis balls at Nasser looked, erm, interesting.......

    Sounds about right. I'd quite like to see Beefy advise him to play them with his eyes closed, like against DKL at Old Trafford all those years ago.

    ah OK, was going entirely off the pitch myself tbh, I'd still say Australia on top though, as long as we get to around 450 we will have plenty on the board

    Decent enough post from Maximas, but I think you're going OTT.

    Unless there's something else we should know?

    Looking at the forecast I'd be surprised if there is much play before lunch. Could be wrong though as I am not near London.

    checked the radar, and it looks like the rain is gone for now, nothing else coming that I can see, should at least get through to lunch
