      Think this was from a week ago or so, Gerrard showing off some batting skills ;)

      Not a bad start for England so far,  although thought Cook went too easily. Stoneman & Vince have done well getting through the morning session without losing another wicket.

      Pitch looks a bit slow, not a bad thing for England

      Not sure about this BT stuff just yet. Find Swann a bit annoying to be fair.

      Might grow on me in time.

      Decent start by England but any batting collapse could be fatal here.

      Australia have produced a wicket where 500 looks parr.

      Agree on swann, after a while he really begins to grate, finds himself hilarious.  Need someone to get a big 100

      I was considering getting BT sport for this but glad I settled for an acestream instead.  Swann, Vaughan and Boycott are so f**king hard to listen to, whilst Ponting and Gilchrist are spot in.  Definitely miss the Sky coverage - say what you want about Sky but their cricket team are fantastic.

      Big first session tonight.

      Interesting first day, slow going, roots wicket was a big blow, new ball first thing is vital, cummins was looking stiff so important that mo, malan etc get their heads down

      Watched a bit of it this morning. BT nowhere near Sky in terms of coverage that's for sure.

      Decent day for England I thought. Shame Cook and Root missed out but good to see some others stepping up to get us into a respectable position. Need one of Moeen/Malan/Bairstow to go big tomorrow.

      Watched up until 6am, so missed last session, unlucky Vince couldn't get his century but a good knock from him, do need to put a few more runs on the board when the match restarts.

      Watched a bit of it this morning. BT nowhere near Sky in terms of coverage that's for sure.

      In terms of commentary, agreed, don't mind Vaughan but agree with Fields of Anny Road, Swann starts to grate after a while. Gilchrist and Ponting, know their stuff and comes through in the way the describe the game.

      Ffs, too many poor shots, going to be a minimum of 100 under par, perhaps crane instead of ball would have been good in hindsight  :mad:

      Thoroughly enjoyed that morning session. Might just nab a few overs before sleep to see if England can bag a wicket or two.

      England need some quick wickets tomorrow and I think they'll get them, its shaping up to be an interesting test and close series.
