    Sometimes with Warner early on his drives look so lazy it's almost like he is taking the piss

    Watson's wicket makes me sigh every time. Did a little but not a lot and a top order bat really should be covering balls like that in his sleep.

    Its so good if a nightwatchman actually survives a good deal of overs. Good bowling with the new ball is basically wasted.

    I just said good three times in that sentence.

    No one ever does, but he just keeps on taking wickets. You never feel that uncomfortable against him, but his record speaks for itself, over a fair while now.

    I heard he was playing last night, few of his mates flew over. I can see the logic behind it, he can do the job into the breeze at the WACA. I wouldn't be surprised if he joins his best mate McKay as a one Test wonder, but I think it's an understandable one-off choice.

    Lyon's sort of the perfect nightwatchman. #11 bat but with a really good defensive technique and really good ticker.

    Lyon deserves a medal for surviving that, especially that last over.

    Good day, pretty even in my opinion. Gonna miss first session tomorrow because I got a game, dammit.....

    Good stuff. Things are pretty even although Clarke and Hussey are still to come.

    As well as Lyon has batted I never understood why teams always choose the absolute worst batsmen in the team as night watchman. Would have thought it'd be better to bring up Johnson who might be able to make a quick fire 50 if he survives. England promoted Anderson in a recent test match which left Swann as the last batsmen. Would have been better off promoting Swann imo.

    Just quietly, Lyon is turning into a very useful cricketer for Australia.
