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

cpfc4evandeva 10-12-2021 06:53 AM

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.

Golf Boy 10-12-2021 07:02 AM

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.

Aki Aki Aki 10-12-2021 07:22 AM

Good to wake up and see some fight

El Aguila 10-12-2021 07:25 AM

Yes, a dash of spunk.

KYLIE MINEAGLE 10-12-2021 07:42 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.

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

Fantastic reply. Well done England :lux:

Supersonic 10-12-2021 08:39 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 08:39 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 08:50 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 08:51 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 08:52 AM

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

art malice 10-12-2021 08:57 AM

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

Jordan's Jacket 10-12-2021 09:11 AM

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.

glenn.f 10-12-2021 10:28 AM

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.

davech 10-12-2021 11:18 AM

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.

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.

11:30 start again.

Maiden Eagle 10-12-2021 03:46 PM

Really good effort from Malan and Root, but I think they'll have to do a lot more
batting tomorrow, because I just don't trust the rest of the batting to not collapse in a heap.

But in saying that, I fully expected the game to be over by now, so fair play.

art malice 10-12-2021 03:53 PM

Malan spoke really well after. Love him to kick on big.

Supersonic 10-12-2021 10:18 PM

Think the big selection issue we have is that we have no number 8 apart from Woakes, who is a great bowler at home, but not so great away. But we're forced to select him, as otherwise our tail is incredibly long. It's why I think Bess has to come into the equation, lets be honest we don't have a test quality spinner at the moment, Bess, Leach, Rashid, they are all pretty average county championship bowlers, but at least Bess could bat 8 and we could select our best three seamers.

Appreciate the point but Iím not convinced that not having a decent #8 was the reason we only scored 147Ö

Don’t think we actually need to select a spinner in Australia. Root can bowl 10-15 overs of spin and he’s really not far off Leach/Bess standard. They’re both bang average international spinners and offer nothing. Keep Woakes at 8 and go for 5 seamers (especially if Stokes is only going to give you 10-12 overs).

I do wonder, if he does nothing in this Test, whether they'll be brave enough to drop Stokes. Shift everyone below him up one so Woakes becomes more of an all rounder, drop Leach, and get Broad and Anderson in.

Broad, Anderson, Wood, Robinson and Woakes, with Root to twirl a few. Heavy on bowlers but Woakes can bat and Robinson can hold his own.
