Nice work. Good to see us putting up a fight. Hopefully augurs well for the rest of the series. Just need our openers to post a score or two

crystaljim 10-12-2021 09:16 AM

Well done. Day 3 is always the best day to bat in a test match, but not everyone takes advantage of it.

If you get 500 plus and set us 250 to win, it might get interesting on the last day and Leech might be a lot harder to put away.

GB2506 10-12-2021 09:21 AM

A very pleasant surprise to wake up to! Fantastic to see us show some fight. Looking forward to staying up for a few hours tonight and watching the first session.

Worksop Palace 10-12-2021 09:34 AM

Ah, some fight from the batsman (except the openers obvs)

Good stuff. See the new ball off without too much damage tomorrow, Buttler and Stokes pummel a few and who knows, maybe a lead of 200?

Unlikely but you never know.

Who is it you are getting ?

Bastards have only gone and given us hope the bastards

Made me laugh listening to Warne and I think it was Hussey this morning sweating on England going well past their total. Have they not seen us this last couple of years and our fragility beyond one decent partnership in an innings, nearer a whole test if I was being honest. Either the Aussies aren't quite so confident in their side or they're just downplaying any lead up to a bit of top class early doors crowing. No chance will get anything more than lead of a 100 I'd imagine

GreatGonzo 10-12-2021 10:31 AM

Sunshine and a chance of showers in the early afternoon the current weather forecast for Brisbane on Sunday!

It would take some (typical England) collapse from here not to score another 150 runs on this wicket. If the Aussies bowl like demons with the new ball then fair play to them. If they donít, we should get another 200 at least. It very probably wonít be enough but we should be setting them 150 minimum from here.

Great fightback. Pity about the 278 first innings lead. It is a huge unknown how the Aussies would have fared with the Day 1 conditions, but we are where we are.

Shows we can bat with the right application, but the nagging fear is th next collapse is just around the corner. Bat out Day 4, set them 200+ and we have game on (of sorts). I can dream, but it is not out of the question. Good to see us making a bit of a game of it. Outplayed so far, but maybe with better tactical awareness (never really Joe's strong point) and team selection there is a ray of light.

But where are the terrestrial highlights??? Pathetic from the TV companies.

If we bat out day 4 we'd have a lead of about 270/280 at the very least!!

The important thing is to get through the first 90 minutes tomorrow. if we could get through that without losing a wicket, and even a small lead, we can then start putting them under some pressure.

We need 4 an over for that - a good rate for test cricket. Possible if Stokes and Buttler can up the ante. Day 4 could be interesting.

GB2506 10-12-2021 12:15 PM

Just making them bat again would be a bloody good effort! Even if we set them 100-150 to win and get them 4 or 5 down I would be happy. At least we will have shown some fight and can take confidence into the 2nd test.

I guess it's the Aus TV coverage. So I believe one guy is Gilly (great cricketer, but no voice for commentary :S: )

Agree Dave

To be honest, making them chase anything around 150 is a pretty good effort having been bowled out for 147 on day one. Will give them some belief if nothing else.

BBC iplayer have highlights

art malice 10-12-2021 12:23 PM

Agnew says the draw’s out of the equation but it’s not is it? Unlikely but possible.

Palace Kebab 10-12-2021 12:42 PM

With the next test back to back, their bowlers going into to the second test having actually used some energy to get us out, especially if Hazlewood is injured, is important. Our two best bowlers fresh as well.

Possible but will probably need weather to intervene which looking at the forecast, looks unlikely

East-End Eagle 10-12-2021 01:56 PM

Still think we will lose, but it’s nice to see a bit of fight and make the Aussies work a bit.

cpfc4evandeva 10-12-2021 02:33 PM

Iplayer have highlights but not until 17:00 each day :(
