Said it earlier mind, the big thing for us will be Swann, the quicks have almost done the job, say they get one more, well it's job done fr the new ball. Then if we see turn on day one ? Well we will be strong favs providing we don't bat horribly, at least Bresnan has added a bit more lower order runs too as a potential bonus...Keep on hoping..[smi]

We may lose about a session today in rain and similar tomorrow, but the weather is set better for the last 3 days, so hopefully they will make up most the lost time. And this pitch looks bowler friendly enough for a result anyway.

Well what a fantastic opportunity to win the ashes, all we really need to do is get shot of them for sub 120, post 300 and it's pretty much game over. Batting looks stronger with Bresnan in, we have to be uber confident here, no fear, just go on and win the game, massive head start here. [^]

bungydinsdale Posted on 26/12/2010 04:11

that's all 9 caught behind the wicket. great bowling and catching. I hope Anderson gets his 5for, he deserves it.
I hope we can get at least a half decent lead.

Great performance, still plenty to do though, we need a good partnership early on then we can really put them under the cosh.

bungydinsdale Posted on 26/12/2010 04:25
In the absence of Ray

the key is how juicy the pitch still is and how fired up the ozzie bowlers are...
I think getting hussey out cheaply meant the end cheaply was inevitable.
I agree, 300+ and it should be game over, ashes coming home and bye bye Wicky P...

7_The_Informer Posted on 26/12/2010 04:27
In the absence of Ray

So, do we come out and play for stumps or put them to the sword?

offside-again Posted on 26/12/2010 04:29
In the absence of Ray

Even 200 would have us in a healthy position and it's a lot easier when you know the opposition have only got 98. But yes we have to be careful here the ball s doing a lot if you bowl well. Plus side is they are quite english conditions really. Just leave the ball well and make the bowlers bowl straight and play a lot off your legs, be tricky but 250-300 is gettable no Q..

bungydinsdale Posted on 26/12/2010 04:30
In the absence of Ray

a few overs to get in, then slog em out of the game and the series...
They've just showed Shane Warne bowling in the nets behind the grandstand...to bloody Hugh Jackman of all people.

offside-again Posted on 26/12/2010 04:32
In the absence of Ray

Get to 50/0 or 50/1 see off the new ball and it should seem easier, we only need one big score from our top 6 really and a few contributions along the way. But we don't want to get 2 or 3 down for sod all abviously..

Either way no way should any Test side be a/o for 98 ffs. [smi] Ours to throw away really play anywhere near normal and there fuqed imo. [8D]

You can only follow on if you are 200 or more behind IIRC, so 201 opposition then 1 all out you can follow on. Less than 200 impossible to have to follow on.

Follow on only really occurs with scores of over 300 minimum really.

Keep an eye out for any spin that will decide how quick we can maybe win this. Ideally starts to turn, few cracks develop and the sun blasts down on the wickt. Swann will love that with a lead, fielders round the bat and the quicks steaming in from one end, with Swann twirling away at the other, could hammer them if we get a 300 run lead. [;)]

Just watching the highlights on SS2.

My thoughts were that the Aussies tried to engineer a pitch to replicate the WACA one, what they got was an underprepared green strip which combined with overcast skies made it behave more like Lords in May than Melbourne in December. They gambled and lost when they lost the toss. Stupid thing to do. Bless 'em.

PRIORYMAN Posted on 26/12/2010 12:01
In the absence of Ray

I was lucky enough to be at the game today. I won't bore you with the details of the match as you will doubtless have seen the game or the highlights already.

A few additinal comments maybe of interest though. 85,000+ crowd with I would estimate around 10,000 England supporters sp[read around the ground.

Spent some time with the Barmy Army (numbered around 300) who were having a field day and outsinging the Aussies from start to finish (though with more than a hint of Southern accents).

Most of the Aussies were stunned by the events (just as we were) but berated their own team rather than giving credit to England (no sursprises there then) !

There were a few Boro shirts in the crowd. We took two flags that were on show all match but due to restrictions on covering adverts I reckon only around 5% were out. There will be more in Sydney.

Amazing days cricket. Certainly one of the most remarkable days sport I have ever witnessed.

The Aussies are to cricket what Germany are to football ....... write them off at your peril. However this would be the greatest escape of them all should they avoid defeat here.

They're coming home, they're coming home, they're coming, Ashes are coming home !

Very soon to think about such a thing - but what figure would be when you would declare?

Do you look to hopefully (fingers crossed) put on a big score and bowl them out, or go reasonable, look to skittle them for something decent and bat to win...

Time is very much on our side, weather willing.

Now then, I'm good thanks. Looking forward to a long night in front of the tele....

We just have to bat session by session and see where we are at the close of play. Ideally we only want to bat once and score as many runs as possible to put them under pressure. Obviously, here is no time pressure at all in the game anymore so we don't have to worry about that....

Need more than 300 if we only want to bat once. Pitch is gonna be very flat from days 3 onwards they reckon...

I think this pitch will be flat but there is so much time left, and they will have socreboard pressure on them 300 lead would win it for me anyway, they will probably bat longer though, and get 350 in front.

I think we can win comfortably with a 300 run lead, but t looks like we'll end up with about a 400 run lead and win by an innings, our bowlers are a lot better, there poor bowling has made this pitch look flatter than what it is, a good bowling unit will take wickets on this pitch. [^]

We won't drop Colly, he's too much of a "team player" and a good fielder. I think he's too well liked AND, if we do win this game, they won't be wanting to change the batting order I would have thought.

Aye Ray - I'll send you an e-mail when I know I'm definitely going (all depends on weather)....

Think we'll struggle to get 350+ lead unless Trott gets a big hundred of course then we'll be fine for that kind of lead, I honestly think we have a big enough lead now, for me our bowling attack is just so much better, with so much variation, we got the height of Tremlett getting extra bounce, Anderson is the best swing bowler in the world, Swann the best spinner in the world, and Bresnan is just a solid reliable performer..

Ray - just sent you an e-mail. I'm off to the sack for a bit. Will have TMS on I reckon unless it gets interesting and get up and watch SKY again.

BTW, I think I owe Prior an apology for my WTF comment. In the end, it was undeserved [:D]

If we get a 300 lead I can see us winning this by an innings...

SA is more or less English anyway. [ref]

To be fair with Prior I think he moved here when he was just a young lad, like 13 or 14 I think, and he has no trace of a SA accent when you hear him on interview.

Besides that's the benEfit of having HAD an empire, it's only fair you get to take your pick from the R.O.T.W. [;)]

Prior has an English father and moved to England when he was 11.

Strauss has an English mother and moved to England when he was six.

Pietersen also has an English mother and Trott has an English father.


Sea_Harrier Posted on 27/12/2010 07:39
In the absence of Ray

It looks like the end of the road for Ponting now after his latest prolonged outburst regarding the Pietersen appeal not being upheld.

I predicted that he wouldn't captain this test, through illness or injury, but proved wrong.

Ponting has courted controversy too many times now, and this latest petulant event will not please the ICC.

If Ponting captains the last Test I'll be surprised, but it would definitely be his last.

7_The_Informer Posted on 27/12/2010 15:30
In the absence of Ray

When I was at Uni, I walways used to get stick about Craig White from my non-Yorkie friends, saying he was a convict. I used to defend him to the hilt saying he was ENglish and it wasn't his fault his parents moved there when he was 13 but they wouldn't have it. However, Wisden had some story on him and showed a photo of him in the Melbourne test in 2002 (pre Barmy Army) wearing an England shirt and with a Union Flag. That shut them up.

I wonder where the allegiances of our African-born players is? Prior and Straussy are definitely 3-lions, but what about Trott and Pieterson? Whose result do they look for first?

Holgatewall Posted on 27/12/2010 18:10

Are we ready for tonight lads?

This sitting up all night listening to the radio is knocking hell out of me but who cares as long as we win.

Test match special have done a great job.

We should bat on until Lunch and then put misery guts and his clowns in to bat.

offside-again Posted on 27/12/2010 18:22
In the absence of Ray

yeah looking forwards to the resumption of play, I agree bat till lunch, play positively & push the lead on to 420-450. Then our new ball attack should get them one or two down, then over to Swann to twirl away from one end with men round the bat, and rotate the quicks in 4 or 5 over spells from the other end.

The scoreboard pressure and our very good bowling attack will surely prove too much for the Australians.

Good morning everybody from Melbourne. It's 7am and the sun is coming up. we

We had a great day at the MCG yesterday and looking forward to more of the same today. Everybody well chuffed with what's happening. The press are gunning for Punter. DISGRACE was the headline in yesterday's Herald the local paper.

Barmy Army strangely not in as a big a voice as the 2005/6 tour and I put that down to the fact that the England supporters seem to be more spread out around the ground 67000 there yesterday although at the end I'd say the 20000 left in the ground were mainly England. Batting conditions will be tricky for first hour this mng but will ease. Then uneven bounce will start! That will be Swann time.

Beefy, Gower and Hussain all reckon Punter was let off ligtly and that he should have been charged with a level 2 offence.

FFS I wish they would stop harping on about Ponting, we've always known he was a kn0b anyway, and it is taking away from what has been a superb England performance thus far.

Anyway guess they'll stfu about it soon enough, but yeah starting to annoy me now in case you hadn't noticed. [:D]

But yeh any sign of turn early on when they bat again and we'll have an early finish, if not it will just take a bit longer.[ref]

Ray if we can't win with a 368 run lead what difference would a 450 run lead make ?

And it does show that really this is not a dead wicket there is still something there, I have no problem with us declaring now.

Yeah can see what your saying, but you have to admit that the pitch still looks ok(ish) to bowl on, my main worry was if it looked really flat today, we dragged our innings on a bit, then they got to the close only 1 down say. then a bit of weather and who knows, it's one of thos egames where it's best it moves along, to me anyway...[;)]

The more runs you score, the more psychological pressure on the batters there is....

Well over 350 and the psychological pressure is at 99% full anyway, the england bowlers will be happy to see it looking not too dead as a pitch, anyway that's all I'm saying on it. [ref] [:P]

ProudToComeFromTeesside Posted on 28/12/2010 00:38

OA, if it was the 4th day and not the 3rd day, maybe declare, but otherwise, we might as well bat on. In an ideal world, I'd love to see us bat most of the day and then declare, leaving the convicts to bat after spending two whole days in the field. Unfortunately, with 7 wickets down, that's unlikely. We'll still leave them needing 400+ to save the match, with the best part of two and a half days to bowl them out.

I'd have liked to have given them 15-20 mins to bat before lunch, openers hate those little sessions, you just tell your quick bowlers to run in give it everything then they get another go right away after lunch. So in effect one 10 over spell for each opening bowler, and the batters have to get in twice, each time with a new ball to face.

Now another wicket just falls so it will be more than likely lunch just as we are all out, anyway reverse swing there, so signs of an abrasive surface, meaning it should turn also.

These wickets prove my point it's good for us really, more so than if we had lost none.

Australia are finished, I'm sticking by my point, we'd have less chance of winning if we had lost no wickets and it had looked flat, it hasn't and we now have more chance of winning than we did before play started.

Yeah the 40 min break, as oppose to a 10 min break helps them a tiny bit, but Hughes has looked a walking wicket all series, Watson never scores hundreds, Ponting out of form, massive scoreboard pressure, no chance of winning the game, and hardly any chance of a draw at all.

We only don't win if our bowlers for some unknown reason perform well below even badly, never mind normal.

Julios_Hairband Posted on 28/12/2010 01:45

I think we'd basically taken the attitude of "let's just get bowled out". I was expecting us to declare a bit earlier to be honest, but I would guess that we were never going to come back out to bat after lunch. Perhaps going like this will just give them a little bit of a false confidence to come back out on rather than coming straight out with their backs against the wall.

Tarmo every innings starts with a new ball if you're saying what i think you're suggesting there ? [?]

New ball every 80 overs from the start of each innings, if Aus are still in after 80 overs they will have about 240 runs, so they will still be about 150 behind, that's why a 400+ run lead is like a 'double' lead, and that once you're 350 infront, you nearly always win unless the pitch looks very flat, which this one doesn't, it just looks good to bat on.

I don't understand how the conditions were good for England to bowl them all out for 98.

If Aus get to say 240-3 we will be in trouble, 240/4 we would probably still win, 240/5 almost certainly, 240/6 we defo win.

In my view anyway, after watching cricket pretty avidly for a good 20 years.

Spin bowler taking wickets basically making it turn off the wicket,so you dont take a new ball [^]

offside-again Posted on 28/12/2010 02:14
In the absence of Ray

You may have spinners bowling well with the old ball, you may have your quick bowlers enjoying bowling with the old ball, as that is when they get reverse swing. It may be the type of pitch which suits all of the above.

But most the time you take the new ball as soon as it's available, or not too long after it's available. Cricket is just one of those games I'm afraid tarmo, where if you don't undertand the finer points, you will sometimes think WTF ! But in a way that's what's so good about it, and no other game is about the pitch so much. Well horse racing is I guess, if you can call it a pitch.

We wouldn't have got nowt there..Not conclusive enough really.

Big clue is always the bowler anyway, if they don't appeal you should not refer really.

No need to refer those ones, loads of time and loads of runs. There allowed to bat well and get off to a good start too, so lets not panic at any stage, well not yet anyway. [;)]

Those 'plane' messages in Oz are a load of tosh. I was there last winter and every day there is a plane up there writing a non-descript message.

I have got photos of 'sorry' and 'call mum' over Sydney. I was amazed at first - turns out they are just generic messages they pipe out for some reason.

Think Love Hearts in the sky.

Big wicket, well done Bresnan.

With two new batsman I think Strauss is missing a trick by not putting more close in fielders.

What was Ali like Ray?

I thought we were decent today but still need a lot of work. Lita and Tavares were immense. Don't like our fullbacks, neither can defend (but I would like Bennett on the left wing).

DId he say anything about Lita, Wheater and McMahon throwing their shirts to the fans afterwards?

Ali was buzzing again lol 7TI [:D].

Yeah he said Lita looked upto it togay from the start [^] Wheater was solid as was bates and very good bullied Parkin [^].

And he did mention the players going to the supporters [^]
