Survived the session. Our best period down under so far. Bedtime for me and I look forward to waking up and finding out we have survived the day :D

Root and Malan going ok. 51/46

We're not going to win or even get a draw out of this, but it is worth remembering that crazy first test about 10 years or so years ago now.

Stranger things have happened.

Joe Root is my old sports teachers son in law. He’s cricket mad and his daughter brings home the future England captain as a boyfriend.

Good to wake up and see some fight

El Aguila 10-12-2021 06:25 AM

Yes, a dash of spunk.

KYLIE MINEAGLE 10-12-2021 06:42 AM

Wondering if some thing is wrong with Hazelwood. Only bowled 8 all day and everyone else seems to be getting a trundle except him. Still on the field though.

Hope so

These Aussie tv commentators are absolutely dreadful, they have nothing of interest to say and just talk nonsense amongst themselves. There were some truely great Aussie commentators in years gone by, the current crop should hang their heads in shame :D

What was the question?

cpfc4evandeva 10-12-2021 07:36 AM

Fantastic reply. Well done England :lux:

Supersonic 10-12-2021 07:39 AM

Great partnership from Malan/Root so far, need to keep it up tomorrow, knowing England we could still easily collapse to 300 all out lol. But a great effort after a dismal first couple of days.

Eagle's Nest 10-12-2021 07:39 AM

I still think the game is lost, but wouldn't it be nice if we got a 150-200 run lead and then made them bat on the final day?

RazorsEdge 10-12-2021 07:50 AM

I do agree, game is kinda lost but put up 250 to chase (no laughter please) and bowl in the right areas we may give a fight back.

Ok I will stop smoking that wacky backy

But in all honesty that is some good batting today by Root and Malan

Tomo 10-12-2021 07:51 AM

Decided to get an early night. That did mean I naturally woke at 4:30 and had a decent nights kip and saw 2 hours of good cricket!

The new ball tomorrow is going to be so important. These 2 need to get through to the new ball first. That’ll tell us a lot about how far we can take this game. Ideally you want these 2 to bat the first hour and a half tomorrow and it might just give us a fighters chance of at least making it difficult for Australia.

stinky 10-12-2021 07:52 AM

We need to score 450-500 to make it slightly interesting. 500 would leave them 222 behind.

art malice 10-12-2021 07:57 AM

Well i was not expecting to wake up to that score. Played Root and Malan

art malice 10-12-2021 08:07 AM

Bruised ribs for Warner? Nasty
