That was good, more "proper" test batting. Three more hours of this would be nice, better still get past tea let the Aussies have an hour to negotiate.

Don't agree about Roy, I think he has the skills he to work on adapting his technique to play long innings, the ball that got him was a good one, it happens to openers (I know as that's where I bat) Look how Burns has adjusted his technique, I think he can make the mental adjustment, given time. It's not as if we're overladen at 1&2.

Just to say it again, 2 days of Test cricket, a real treat

Match evenly poised going in to the 4th day, England maybe just shading it. To state the obvious a lot depends on this first session. If Smith & Head continue in the same vein then the balance will shift, so early wickets needed for you blokes.

A lead of 250 plus will take some getting.

Smith is a batting miracle. I've never seen someone so technically flawed score so many runs. He must have the eyesight of an eagle.

Exactly what you did in our innings

Australia have this match in the bag. Only thing that can save England is the weather.

Bit premature with that!

If they can't nick out one or two by lunch the Aus should be favorites but time could be an issue. If the scoring rate drops off they might not leave enough time to bowl England out.

It just doesn't make sense that he can wander across his stumps and never get pinned LBW, perhaps a bit of extra pace might help, a 94mph yorker should prove difficult in the next match.

They're doing it because the replacement balls are last year's batch and for whatever reason they swing. You eventually got the umpire to change the ball and it swing and you got a couple of wickets.

Another dud call by this umpire

This has to go down as one of the worst displays of umpiring in cricket history surely?

The dead giveaway is these players are just reviewing it straight away. Not even talking to their partner

Denly has to go and Archer and Curran should come in. Roy deserves another chance but he's never a Test opening batsman imo.

Yep he's an enigma alright. So many moving parts it shouldn't really work & yet it does. He's sort of like someone decided to weld Derek Randall's fidgety mannerisms on to Alan Border's grit & determination.

Given he could barely run between the wickets yesterday it's not really very surprising. It didn't help England's cause that he virtually played as a specialist No11. Still I guess it means Archer (assuming he's fit of course) should play. Looking forward to seeing how he gets on.
