He looks like he's lacking in confidence.

I hope Mitchell's okay.

Where is the menace who swung the ball back into right handers and tore up South Africa?

Oh, that's right. Ricky Ponting is the captain

Maybe Ricky Ponting can take the match into his own hands and produce some overs of AWESOME MEDIUM-PACERS!

Two questions:

1. Are England the most inconsistant batting team in the world?

2. Is Peter Siddle the ugliest man to have ever played cricket?

1. ATM yes

2. Umar Gul looks like his face was constructed using rendered concrete...

Also there were some gimpy looking dudes that played in the 1800's... but he is pretty close

Siddle looks like he should have his ankle tagged by Victoria Probation Services

Onions will secretly put onions on both the batting creases and cover them with sand so it forces the batsman to cry ... but wait, it could do the same for a bowler. You're doomed, Onions is doomed and England is doomed.

1. You could mount a good case for that.

2. Nah, I don't think big and menacing equates to ugly.

I remember looking at the England team after the first session on TV and seeing Onions in there, I had a laughing fit for two minutes straight, and you know what?

I eat onions for breakfast.

haha ^ everyone loves a good happy gilmore reference!

So anyway, the fact that England dominated our bowlers is no suprise: Johnson is the most inconsistent bowler there is, Siddle is a toiler, but the pitch was dead, and hilfy struggled with the slope. Hauritz is cooked for the test, and north was benign.

The pitch is dead. This is a farce. England are planning on getting out of the series 1-0. Hope for 4 draws by employing rubbish time-wasting when they can't win, and going all out to turn the screws if they have a mild shot.

Not in the spirit of the game

When will they ever learn? In '05 IIRC it was the mint that caused that epic reverse swing and now it's just simple, old time wasting tactics. I would love to bowl them out for -400. The story could well be different if we batted first methinks.

3 wickets in the session so far, an impressive one. Now everyone's favourite guy Onions is batting!
