    Our bowling was terrible in the first session, but it's been a lot better since lunch. Really felt like smacking our quicks over the head for bowling short. Every single ball that landed around half way ended up crossing the rope. Pitch it up FFS. Starc and Lyon have been bowling very well since lunch though.

    Thought Siddle & Watto bowled quite well in the 2nd part of the session. Starc on the otherhand bowled absolute tripe, much improved after lunch though thankfully, and it's no co-incidence imo that he was bowling mostly over instead of around the wicket.

    Matthews looks a wicket in waiting.

    Very poor temperament.

    Geez these two are trying seriously hard to get themselves out, aren't they?

    Mathews has batted so weirdly since lunch.

    Makes for good/amusing watching though. It's so pre-meditated at times (eg. gets beaten/almost run-out, must smash the next ball!)

    Mathews has no idea what's happening out there atm, a walking wicket.

    Clarkey is a great captain to watch in the field, whether his stuff works or not.

    Would love a wicket right now. Dilshan and Matthews simply riding on luck. Poor batting.

    That's pretty much the worst hour of batting I've ever seen without losing a wicket.
