Long way to go yet. We have to make sure we avoid the follow-on.
Cmon have faith....
Today got off to a real bad start. Woke up to find Eng 53-3 then to make it
worse I've just put me car in for its MOT + service. Hope my phone doesnt ring.
We have no chance now in this match and I am talking about saving it. Once Bell and Pietersen have been dismissed I can't see our tail hanging around to long.
Fast forward to 2009, and England beat Australia at Lords. First time since 1934! 5 wickets for Sir Freddie Flintoff and 1-0 up.
That will do nicely!
It was great stuff wasn't it. When that early wicket went down I think we could rest easy as I was as nervous as hell before play started today.
Swann has bowled really well since he finally made his test debut. He is or was the leading wicket taker this year and always impresses when he is in action. Monty is going to struggle to get his place back and rightly so as he wasn't improving and was making the same mistakes over and over. He isn't a bad bowler but someone really needs to keep on at him to help him improve.
