Well really, Hauritz is a joke of a cricketer, and in all fairness, ahead of Siddle and Hilfy, on merit, Bracken should be there.

Prior not a bad keeper-batsman.

Hussey's catch was a blinder, Pieterson's shot was attorcious (made Haurtiz look much better than he is).

If Panesar makes a 50 tomorrow I will photograph myself doing inappropriate things to inanimate objects

Ritzy is no good, but neither are any of the options. Jon Holland was probably worth trying (they try everyone else!)

I will remind everyone that Casson had the most solid performance of anyone filling this spinners role.

Bracken should be there ahead of hilfy if they are looking for a wswing bowler, but not siddle. The guy thoroughly deserves his spot, and it is good to see an aussie bowler offer some real fire and 'mongrel'.

Johnson looks ineffectiual in England, as I think most of us expected. The way he bowled with the new ball was inexcusable, and he should never get the new pill again. Siddle hitting Bopara's throat was lovely to watch.

I am dumbfounded that Haurtiz and hilfenhaus played over Stuart Clark. Can someone explain how a guy with nearly 100 test wickets and an average of 22 is left out for a guy with an average of 52???

A few things.

Pietersen should be sacked for playing that shot. Atrocious.
Ravi Bopara is not a #3, nor it appears is he any good. Scratchiest 30 I've ever seen.
Johnson should be a change bowler.
Siddle is a gun and bowled the best.
Hilfy's not up to it, imo.
Leaving Clark out is a horrible decision.
Hauritz should just retire.
I hope an Ashes test is never ever played in Cardiff again. I had the volume cranked right up and I still couldn't hear a thing.

Man Hughes may look unorthodox, but what an eye! He is so good to watch

No way this will be a draw. Aus either declare at the end of tomorrow or are all out. If they declare they will have scored 600, and have 2 days to roll england and knock off a few rune. If they are all out there is 2 and a bit days left on a deteriorating wicket

Freddie aside, Eng Bowlers looked very average
Either a Draw or Aussie win from here
Unless Monty can take 7/97 tomorrow

KP is getting battered in the UK press, especially by G. Boycott who says he is a daft so and so for not coming out and admitting he played a stupid shot.
Not for the first time as well. If KP carried on he would have got 150 and England would be ok now.

Broad, Swann, Panesar, Anderson - what an intimidating attack!

and if Hughes had caried on, he would have scored 4 billion, but he also played a loose shot. Happens, no ifs or buts, cricket is cricket. England in the hole. KP is a 'tard. EOS

Pietersen joins my 'test players who can fuck off' group, #2 member behind Chris Gayle.

Just to make a comment, I am disheartened by two things: games where the bowlers dominate are becoming rarer and rarer. A good example was the South African series, there were plenty of solid scores there. I'm talking about test matches where bowlers extract the most out of lively, bouncing or turning pitches and get sides out cheaply, and then the match becomes real exciting, as opposed to the 1/250 we are chasing 430 odd. The other thing is the gradual decline of pitch characteristics. MCG became a drop in. Perth had less bounce and was slower. And I'm convinced the pitch at Cardiff must just about be made of bitumen,.

Great to see Punter get a ton, but I'm already bored with this series. Australia will smash England, England have nothing going for them in their bowling attack. Though maybe I'm just bitter i can't watch Le Tour for some reason.
