      Smith gone caught behind off Anderson

      Aus had started solidly.. But smith was playing well, key breakthrough for England who could do with wickets in bunches

      Haddin the new batsman

      108/5 or 5/108 for our brothers down under so you don't get confused  ;)

      Love the ashes






      Edit

      Haddin gone for 1 bowled Swann

      Siddle the new man

      Anderson has Siddle caught behind

      7 down

      3 wickets in 12 balls

      Wickets in bunches indeed




      Edit

      Swann puts Starc down at slip off Jimmy, should have caught it, got both hands to it

      Desperate review that.

      Advantage England.

      Conditions look good for batting today so I'm surprised the aussie's have folded so quickly.

      Bit of luck for England and we could be marching towards a 300 lead by the end of the day.

      Regardless of our shitness, you're comments remind me why I love the Ashes so much.

      I just want to beat England. I hate losing to England in anything.

      Ashton Agar having a right go here. Phil Hughes should be taking singles to give him strike!

      Finn is the most brainless of bowlers. He really is the new Harmison. Embarrassing.

      Well played Agar. Aussies look odds on for a decent lead here. His batting is that of a top order player. In a way I take encouragement in him being number 11 because Australia clearly don't know there own player here. He could easily have been batting with the sh*te rather than  Hughes and been left stranded without facing a ball. They could have thrown away a 100 runs on that decision alone.

      We are struggling with just 3 bowlers here us which is basically 2 with Finn bowling short and wide.

      Cracking batting wicket this if we manage to get a go.

      Still plenty of movement for the bowlers. Not quite sure why Swann is bowling. There isn't much for him to work with.

      Surely there is a medium pacer part time bowler to come because Finn is sh*te. Get Anderson and a medium pacer on.

      This is awesome to watch. Regardless what happens I'd have snapped your hand off if you offered a 50 run deficit. Now we could have a nice little lead.

      Trent Bridge is a batting paradise under the sun. England still favourites in this game. I expect a few hundreds from the bats of the top 7 when we get a second dig. Problem is a these two could bat till tea and put big pressure on us.

      Having said all this the lad Agar was out stumped hours ago.

      Batting paradise it may be but our boys aren't accustomed to success with a stick in their hands. We can crumble in a blink of an eye. I don't understand the bowling tactics once they got Agar in. Very, very few balls troubling him and testing his footwork, not enough at the stumps, not getting him forward and drawing an edge off the bat.

      Exactly the tactics that ripped through our middle order are now non existent. Doesn't make sense.

      Lunch time. Aussies ahead. Woo hoooooo!

      2 down and on the ropes? Inside edge perhaps!?!? Surely!?

      Gone

      Erasmus is South African not Aussie right? Criminal 3rd umpiring.

      Perhaps not no noise on snicko ball seemed to deflect to me though.

      We are in the sh*t now though! Stark is bowling some sh*t down leg but can bowl a lethal swinging full ball.

      Quality bowling by us first up, especially Jimmy Anderson who is now the third leading wicket taker in England's history. (maybe slightly unfair as there's more Tests and more Test cricketing nations now but still he overtook a Yorkshireman in Fred Trueman so that's one up for the Lancs :laugh:) Then it was just criminal at the end. I don't agree with Finn is the new Harmison, Harmy was a decent bowler, Finn is just an overrated lanky streak of piss.

      Can't say I'm gutted for Agar because that's 2 less runs we have to chase down to get a lead. Tough sh*t, that's Test cricket. I know I'm a heartless c**t but so f**king what, this is the Ashes and I don't want the Aussies getting any more runs than they do.

      As for our batting thus far, two very poor dismissals. Root should never of been getting out down the legside, that's just f**king inexcusable at this level. And then the LBW for Trott was the worst piece of third umpiring ever. The whole point of DRS is to get the right decisions and to see one like that come out of it was awful. But it's been and gone now, so we have to move on and hopefully Cook and Pietersen can put us into a decent lead.

      Yeah maybe harsh on Harm who at one point was the best fast bowler in the world, but he also had an annoying tendancy to bowl too short too often.

      Quiet period in the game at the moment but crucial for the game. If we can get into a handy lead and remain only 2 down then we can be pretty satisfied.

      With England however it very rarely plays out that way, so expect a late tumble before stumps!!

      So you mean less than a third of our team? Even if we count Prior who's been over here since the age of 11.

      He did but that was more towards the end of his career in my opinion. And I think he could justify it because Harmy had a f**king belting bouncer when he was on form. The tour of the West Indies before the 2005 Ashes is where he proved that. Finn on the other hand has a sh*t bouncer.

      I think for taller bowlers, it's more natural to bowl a shorter length. Broad is guilty of it at times as well.

      And we've finally gone into the lead with that glorious cover drive from Cooky.

      In my opinion taller bowlers who pitch it up can cause mayhem. Chris Tremlett for instance had the Aussies on toast when he targeted the stumps and the splice of the bat. The shorter ball should be a shock delivery or used in short bursts IMO. Today though we had slips and gullies and Finn bowling short with nobody back for the hook or pull. Completely brain dead.

      Problem for Australia here is that their batting heroes Smith and Agar are not good enough bowlers to exploit the dry pitch. Clarke might have to risk his health and have a bowl. Swann could win us the game on day 4 if we get enough on the board. Make them chase 250 they could struggle.

      Jimmy Anderson now has 312 Test wickets (13 behind Bob Willis in 2nd). Reckon he could pip Bob this series which would be great to see, especially if he was to do it at his home ground of Old Trafford.

      Beefy's 383 though is in no danger as of yet.
