    I feel our batsmen phoned it in. Expected the Poms to wilt and credit to them they’ve gotten back into it. Pending a collapse of course

    To be fair, the batsmen (aside from Smith + 1 (who depends on the day) and Cummins lower down the order) have been phoning it in since the golden generation retired. Warner is good on roads but outside of that, there isn't a whole lot that is great about the batting. The amazingness of Smith tends to cover over a lot of this big problem.

    I think Australia need to look to be batting by the end of the day, can't let England make a monster total here.

    Most Test wickets.

    Anderson now moving ahead.

    Murali 800
    Warne 708
    Kumble 619
    McGrath 563
    Walsh 519
    Anderson 519

    McGrath and Walsh should be behind him if he plays another 12 months.

    And yet I just heard Warne say Cook has never got a ton at home, how strange.

    Goodness me, Ali. That was woeful, has a less talented player ever over-achieved more than Ali in test cricket?

    Smith's got a sore hand apparently, but jeez he's been ordinary in the field the last few games.

    Gastro has got him. He’s been off the field today and Handscomb on.

    Geez Bird has been underwhelming, I know there hasn't been much in the pitch but the good bowler's like hazlewood and Starc can always find something. He can't seriously be next in line

    Had it last week, it's fucked. I can't see how it would be physically possible to be out playing cricket, I was curled in a ball wishing I was dead for two days. Tough bugger but if he's going to be dropping catches and what not perhaps he should sit it out.

    Need to get these last wickets quickly and get batting.
