Decent contribution from Malan but, much like Vince, he has given his wicket away when he should have been looking to play a match defining innings.

Jesus. Bairstow hoicks one up in the air and is caught. Out for 9. Another wicket for Cummins. Eng 8 down and still 30 runs short of 300.

9 Down. Ball gone for 14. Aus claim extra half hour so lunch delayed.

They won’t need half an hour unless Anderson unveils the Burnley Lara. Or rather they’ll need even less time if he does...

300 up, helped by Broad still being there courtesy of Marsh dropping a catch.

Shame for England not to have got another 50+ runs and 20+ overs into the Aussie bowlers. Makes for an interesting match state unless the Aussies just flog our bowlers on a track that won't offer much for medium fast.

Smith could still be batting on Monday against this attack.

What England would give for a Steve Harmison right now to shake up the Aussie batsmen with some wayward extreme pace.

Broad and Anderson are bowling the right areas but they aren't scary at all like Harmy.

Dunno - Ozzies bat much deeper - 125+ lead easily achievable from here.

Loved the way Vince stuck it up that w*anker Hayden.

Do you know who we are now?

Quite possible but conjecture right now. England have the better late batting order.

Lots of chat on TMS about WJB being forced into daft shots as batting with the tail.

He's wasted down the order.

He doesn't have many "average" days - either brilliant or awful.

Lyon the only bowler that has looked a threat mind you - most of the batsmen sold their wickets.

Didn't show it today, though, the last 6 wickets falling for 56.

Conversely, the three chaps believed to be the weak links in the batting contributed over 63% of the total score.

I thought this forum had died?

Anyhoo. Anyone who thought Aus would win this series comfortably probably needs to reassess (I had England favourites after the recall of Paine & Smarsh.) More match-winners, more bowling options, more batting depth. Australias only real advantage is that it's at home & Nathan Lyon. Maybe pace will become more of a deciding factor on quicker surfaces, though I have England winning Adelaide so by then it might be done and dusted. Hopefully it's a real close scrap. I'm still utterly baffled by Australias reasoning behind their selections, and what exactly Maxwell did to warrant being dropped (he's currently on 213* for Victoria.) I'm really struggling to get enthusiastic for this side, though i'm happy for Cummins & Lyon.
