Will say this once and then nothing else. Defamation laws quite clear in Aus.be careful.
People are actually suggesting that Steyn chucks?
do you think people will be allowed to make violins?
who's going to make the violins?
The England management are cretins. Simple as that. Perhaps it was frustrations such as this which were making Pietersen so disgruntled behind the scenes? Bell wasted 40 balls doing sweet FA. Totally predictably. He has never ever done anything positive in a situation like this except eat up valuable time and then get out caught in the slips. I predicted that this would happen yesterday. Surprise surprise, he does the same again.
Meanwhile young thrusters who will at least play their shots in an attempt to win England the game are kept waiting in the hutch while a pretender who has proven time and again that he's not got what it takes wastes everyone's time yet again. By the time Bairstow and Prior get in it will probably be too late. How was having Bell and Trott in together at the same time ever going to help England win the match and retain their no. 1 ranking? Management should have been ensuring that they have complementary batsmen batting in tandem throughout the day - an accumulator and a strokeplayer.
Einstein defined insanity as doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. I've even more respect for his intellect given that he came up with that having never seen the current England XI play Test cricket.

"In 2009 he lost his old, faded India cap, when it was stolen from a ground. He was very, very upset about it. It was dear to him and he was extremely proud to wear it."

Trott has been absolutely terrible this morning - nervous, not playing his natural dame or just out of form?
The time to attack the bowling isn't on a murky morning when you're restarting your innings and the ball is still on the new side. This stuff about I'd rather they go down swinging etc. - that doesn't mean you can't just bat sensibly and then pick things up against the old ball.
Is there a rule somewhere stating English batsman aren't allowed to use their ****ing brain.
