Yes, the new ball often accelerates the scoring rate doesn't it.

24 wanted from 39 balls.

Have to keep reminding myself that it's not a proper run chase. Was thinking, "They've done the hard work now, surely they'll do it from here?". :ph34r:

Worth going out to see the last half hour, not to mention Ponting's expression. Will all be for nowt if we lose a late wicket though.

Damn you Broad you girl.

You were supposed to stonewall those 3 deliveries then let Jimmy do his thing. :ranting:

Well there it is, stumps at the close of the opening stanza. If you recall, I asked:

Will 330 runs be scored on day one?

- The answer, of course, is a yes, with England's stout yeomen managing 336/7. :)

Fair to say this caught one or two of you off guard.

So tomorrow's question for the eight of us who remain is this:

Will Jimmy Anderson's run tally reach double figures?

I'm going to stay positive and say yes again.

Thought a no was a dead cert considering everyone was forecasting a bit of rain during the day. Stupid weathermen.
 

NUFAN

Reckon the umpires were in on it calling two relatively marginal wides in the last few overs.

At tea I thought no was the right answer, Prior's innings and extras were the key.

Will try to remember, aye. :)

Friendly reminders to Saggers & UC who're still to tip for day two; under half an hour to so do now.

Cheers for the heads up. I'm going for no. I think he'll be cleaned up early on.
