Thats what winning the toss does. But at the same time **** sakes top order been hopeless this game.
Ball is seaming everywhere on this pitch... and imagine having to face it under lights on top of that

We'll probably lose 5 or 6 tonight and then be out second session tomorrow giving the poms the best batting conditions.

It's probably one thing I hate the most about day night tests... how lopsided batting can be depending on which session you happen to be in.

Exactly they have opened both innings in overcast and under the lights whereas we started in pure sunlight and by the time the lights were on the ball was fairly old. Anyway England need some help and we still skittles them.

That ball is swinging (not seaming note) around corners at the moment.

We'll skittle them if we can somehow last 3 sessions... if we lose 5 tonight I don't know if we can last 2 sessions tomorrow.

Day night tests are as much about batting time as it is getting runs.

It’s all swings and off the pitch swing abouts anyway.

Not sure the challenges will matter anyway

Burns in my opinion is the glaring symbol of all that is wrong with this England side. He is a rubbish fielder, he's usually off with the fairies most of the time in the field, has a horrible hairstyle, obviously can't bowl and has one of the worst batting techniques you'll ever see and yet, he's comfortably their best opener, probably third best bat.
His haircut is an absolute shocker. To have that as a professional sportsman you'd want to be top shelf, and he isn't.

England have had the absolute best of it, won the toss and bowled in the best conditions, now get Aus into bat at an absolute perfect time, yet are still way behind in the game.
