I'm with you on this one you little happy Hammer you

England are batting first, we'll see how McGrath and Lee hold up.

I'm sure Australia would have liked to bat first to give them both some extra recovery time.

didn't take Lee long to get his first wicket of the day

Strauss for 6, have we any replacements for him?

could move the top order around and bring Thorpe in for the next test......

well, let's just hope we can get a score in the 400's but to do that we'll have to avoid a mid order collapse.

I stayed up as late as I could last night watching the game, finally hit the pit at 11.30. I was very happy with the scoreboard this morning, I think 400 is a minimum now. Maybe looking for mid to high 400's

I think 450 would be a minimum not to lose the game 550+ to win - only because both teams score so quickly - also the pitch will only get worse so a big 1st innings lead is needed against warne in the 2nd - but we will soon see

550 would be asking a bit much I think, I would be happy if they got 450.

Come on the lads!!!

I'd be more than happy with 450 especially after losing Bell so quickly.
