Was right about the line up, but I did believe Cook would bowl first given the choice and he didn't.

Brave or daft remains to be seen, not looking good so far if he's going to get out to Lyon early and now Bell's gone they are looking shaky to bat the day.


So glad I didn't post what I was considering posting earlier, that I thought ding dong would make a mark - he's made 1 ! That's FIVE scores of 0 or 1 in his last 7 innings, hasn't even made 50 net runs

That's a bloody good catch from Haddin. A huge deflection from Cook. Pure reflex. Then drops a sitter off Root on 0. Make them pay, Joe!

To be fair Cook is in decent form himself so which of the two dropped and which might have made them pay/may make them pay, isn't as clear cut as it had been

Agreed. I actually think they've bowled quite poorly (with the exception of Starc's previous over) and yet England are in deep trouble.

Hazelwood tends to rely on bounce... and this pitch has none.

Johnson has gone from a low 150k bowler to a low-mid 140k bowler. And he relies on steepling bounce as well... and this pitch has none.

Apart from Cook never ever using a spinner before 25 overs are up and Ali not being a specialist spinner that is a great shout.

Gosh Haddit's miss could really come back to haunt him.

Stuart Broad's gonna be pretty damn ineffective on this pitch. Anderson and the spinner might have to shoulder most of the load.

That remains to be seen. It was a very bad drop - he could easily have got two hands to it.

This may be one of those fairly regular occasions where we keep hearing from the experts how good a batting wicket this is yet it becomes a lowish scoring affair..with one good innings winning it..varied bounce combined with erratic bowling and nervous batting makes this occur..but it may not be that great a flat track as we are told.

Surely a typo for "Test". He was poor 10 years ago. He's been poor for a while now. Had a few good years in between.

Pitch is getting a little bit of a sprinkle. Would it even do anything to a pitch as dead as this one?

Not as many sheep in Manchester.

The farmers have to find other ways to entertain themselves in the evenings.

I don't think it was an Aussie ploy to drop JR on 0.

The 'Hawkeye' footage/evidence that would have sealed Bell's fate had the decision been reviewed was just wrong, plain and simple. The path of a booming in swinger does not change when the ball hits the pad. I reckon the BCCI could be on to something.

I wasn't suggesting it was a ploy, just not catching Cook could have been as costly as not catching Root could be.

Bit of a recovery, don't know why we don't just send Root and A.N.Other in to open since they're there before the ball is many overs old anyway!



I was considering looking at England bad vs good starts and to whether we recover often enough, analyse whether we need good starts to win a high percentage of matches etc - certainly in recent times.

Would certainly be interesting, I'd have to think what kind of limits to put on good/bad starts, might have to do say wickets down by 100 runs on the board for and against.

I think Root is our best batsman - thats about it.
