    I love how out of touch with the modern day common man Bill is. Still thinks people pay $50 for a ticket just to rock up to the game at tea time.

    Proudly against the bring back Bennett movement since he is injury prone and won't last 5 days.

    People are overrating Herath's bowling here, he has troubled the batsmen the most but that's not difficult is it? He's unthreatening 98% of the time then gets a batsman to play the wrong line and because he's bowled tidily throughout his spell it looks like he's bowling a great spell. Nothing more than a decent, accurate spin bowler.

    Nigel long is on thin ice for mine. Been the biggest **** of an umpire. Finally gets a decision right and wants to argue with the players. Dock him half the match fee imo

    He's had five missed chances, he deserves a break or two.

    There's no arguing that he's been extremely unlucky today though.

    Considering the wicket isn't turning much he has done well.

    The wicket isn't turning because he doesn't turn it...

    This whole innings has been such a letdown. The Aussie bats all had a chance to fill their boots with runs and all of them have thrown the chance away. Can't help but feel they've been scoring a bit too slowly today too.

    You're worried about scoring rate when it's day two with the opposition having already been bowled out?
