    England, especially if they win the toss.
    Beware the lollipop of mediocrity. Lick once and you suck forever...

    Hmmm.

    Bad toss for us to lose. Gloomy morning in England in late September, you've gotta think the balls gonna move around a bit.

    If Vaas & Zoysa bowl well first up Sri Lanka have gotta be favourites now. I liked the look of Maharoof too. First time I'd seen him & it was only Zimbabwe, but looks useful in English conditions.

    Note to self: do not tempt fate by saying Vaughan mustbe due.

    England have a good steady start particularly Solanki looks to be in good touch.
    Boy Brumby, the following two incidents suggest Fortune favours England today.

    3.2 Zoysa to Solanki, no run, excellent delivery! came back in after
    pitching outside the off stump, cuts right through Solanki and
    goes to the keeper, loud confident appeal for caught behind turned
    down
    7.1 Maharoof to Trescothick, one run, dropped! pitched up on the middle
    and off, Trescothick tries to flick it away and ends up with a top
    edge, ball goes high up towards the mid-off region, Zoysa moving
    across drops a fairly easy chance

    But as I post Solanki out So I guess I better

    B*gger.

    Vaughan bowled for 5. Think we're up a certain creek without a paddle...

    Uh oh...not looking good (even though I can't actually see it because I'm in school)

    England are nearly always 50-2 or so, one of the openers departs off an over-aggressive shot followed shortly by a typically moronic Vaughan dismissal... There has been enough playing & missing to be in a far worse position. Will be interesting to see what Harmison does later.

    Why doen't flintoff come up the order? He is a great hitter, timer..and would do more damage coming at 3 or so

    Or, is it something to do with the new ball

    He's usually in after 20 overs even at no. 5, yet another dismissal of Vaughanesque stupidity, 13 runs off the over and they get run out comfortably going for a second... words fail me.

    That's a good point. I suspect it's only because our current 1-4 are, to a greater or lesser extent, openers.

    Although, to my knowledge Flintoff is untested facing the new ball. That isn't to say he couldn't cope with it. With his eye & power he could do some serious damage when the fielding restrictions are in place.
