I think they might give the total a shake


No chance for a win. Decent chance to draw if we bat well, pitch has bugger all in it for the seamers so Lyon will be the key.

Pretty depressing performance after the strong position we have been in firstly at having you 8-122 and then us being 4-280. Missed Jimmy hugely last night and his omission going forward will be tough for us to overcome.
You are an Englishman can you please explain why the Duke ball is now not swinging?
Seriously that is going on?

I’m not a huge Wade fan and wouldn’t have picked him for the first test but he did a great job last night when needed.
Attacked from the first ball to his last.
There are no stupid questions, just stupid people.

Just read an interview with Ricky Ponting who reckons some in the australian team think Wade is currently the best batsman in the world, think thats taking it just a tad far :D

I'm certainly a fan of picking guys who score runs in the Shield (and tour matches) and Wade had been knocking the door down.

England have been set 398 off 98 overs (run rate of 4.1).

This pitch is flat, and if you get through the new ball, then its easy batting. Don't get me wrong, the new ball lasts longer in England than it does in Australia, but the point still remains. Slow English decks are easy to bat on once the ball stops swinging. Look at the runs we scored with Siddle and Lyon against the old ball in the first innings, or even the second innings, where we lost 1/250 between overs 21 and 84, before they finally took the new ball.

For mine, our declaration has been generous enough.
We've given ourselves enough overs to have the first ball, then another 17 overs with the new ball to have a second crack at them. If we haven't bowled them out in 97 overs, then there is every chance England would have the total somewhere in the vicinity of 300 (if not more) and we'd be looking down the barrel of a loss had we given England 115 overs to chase 330.

I get you need to be brave and entice the opposition to chase, but there is a difference between brave and reckless.


They put up a stat last night that was something like this for average per wicket at Edgebaston on each day
Day 1- 29
Day 2- 34
Day 3- 32
Day 4- 41
Day 5- 21
I think w3e run through them, our quicks will attack the stumps much more. Smith has them so shot they don't even bowl at the stumps anymore meaning they can only get him out caught

Yeah that too, but I think it just got big on him. He really didn't know what to do with that.

Stevie Wonder would've seen that one was missing by a mile. What an absolute Barry Crocker this one has been for the umpires.

God knows, surely he could clearly see off stump like the rest of us giving the indication that's missing leg?!
