Thought I'd stay overnight for a few hours listening to our demise in the final day.

Oh well after 4 balls one wicket down -4 left.

Should be locking the office up within 30 minutes.

Come on the rain:)

The barmy army are in good voice however.

Good battling display from England...bowling really let us down in this test and Harmison needs to be replaced with either Mahmood or Panesar! Lost within the first two days!

Team for Friday:

Strauss
Cook
Bell
Collingwood
KP
Freddie
Jones
Giles
Hoggard
Anderson
Panesar or Mahmood


I believe in the next test the spinners will be required more as the track tends to turn more, therefore i'd play two spinners and leave Harmison out!

I'd put the Barmy Army in - well loud this morning.

" I can't make out what the Barmy Army are singing", the other commemtator replied, " You don't want to know".
I peed myself.

Hahaha! Brilliant! That is one thing I want to do next time England are out in Aus, spend a couple of weeks out there watching the cricket! At least i won't have to watch Warne, McGrath, Ponting, Gilchrist, Hayden and Langer destroy us because they'll all have retired by then...

If they drop Harmy and play two spinners will that further damage his confidence?

I reckon wrongly they may drop Anderson.

Harmy desperatley needs a net to correct his technique and rhythm! Got no doubt he's fit but he's not mentally right! Shine was a joke appointment by the ECB in replacement for Troy Cooley! Cheap option when he should have gone for Allan Donald or Courtney Walsh! I think that's the biggest problem with Harmy, Cooley was his mentor and now ironically he's working for the Aussies!

I think there will be a bit of swing with the new ball first up so i'd definatley open with Hoggy and Anderson, Flintoff first change with Pansear and Giles tying down two ends!

Don't disagree mate, but I doubt Fletcher will drop Harmy, but I hope to be proven wrong.
