    Yup, there is some cloud cover in these parts. And wtf is Broad still bowling round the wicket at Smith? Sort it out Strauss.

    I thought that the dry wicket was really going to come into play for Swann here.

    How's that rough helping against the left-hander, btw?

    While Parra were dismembering the hapless co-competition leaders, it seems SA has really kicked on runs-wise.

    Want to hear Hussain an Botham back with the cheer leading now. From the way they were commentating, every ball was a wicket waiting to happen. Good to hear Gower giving some credit where it's due.

    As for Steyn, well he is class. You do wonder if he is carrying an injury though as he only bowled 5 overs in the morning session yesterday and looked brilliant yet wasn't used again till after lunch which seemed strange.
    Yup. btw are you going to any of the Headingly test?

    These two have batted really well, England haven't bowled badly or brilliantly but these two have batted sensibly and safely. Fascinating cricket to watch.

    I've never liked Hussain as a commentator. Such a patronising and smug git to the opposition if they're losing.

    I'll never forget the description of the 2009 Australian side as "workmanlike and hard working" during the tour match against the Lions.

    Hussain and Atherton are literally the only two Sky commentators who deserve a paycheck.

    Smitheh loves the English - 1862 runs (every one a miniature masterpiece no doubt) at 60 now.
