Such a horrible team balance; a proper 6th batsman or proper 3rd seamer could have been so useful.
    If Kane keeps outbowling the rest of them, he'll keep getting big overs.

    I've been saying it for ages - as long as Kane is bowling as he is, and Bucko/Ish aren't up to it, we play an extra batsman or seamer based on the conditions. Not saying the extra batsman (Brownlie) would've scored runs but often creating scoreboard pressure by scoring 500+ is worth an extra bowler on its own, especially against a side of Bangladesh's inexperience.

    You'd like to think that's the way they'd go for the 2nd Test but I'm willing to wager it'll be either Ish or Bucko out (probably the former) for Wagner, in the pursuit of reverse

    Not much interest left in this match, but I hope one of our guys can at least rack up a decent total today.

    Another solid 50 for Fulton. Hope he doesn't throw it away in the 70s this time.

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

    Isn't it meant to be on Sky Sport 5? That's the channel that's only there sometimes. I'm not home at the moment, but I think that's what I saw in the on-screen guide.

    It's on channel 55.

    A good chance for the batsmen to boost their averages today.

    I get Sky through TelstraClear, and they don't appear to be rebroadcasting 055. Bastards.

    Oh that sucks.

    You're not missing much though it must be said lol. Taylor looks all at sea against spin atm. Wiliamson edging closer to another century.

    Williamson desperately unlucky there. Freakish dismissal.

    Freak wicket, that.

    Haque looks down and finds he has a third ball between his legs.
