I don't think so!!! It's great to hear the Brits gloating, but it's even better to see them having to eat humble pie. Maybe they'll reach 50!

Parting Post: Think on this…

I think Australia would have been bowled out in 40 odd overs whatever happened. And the fact that they scored 190 is a credit to the way they play cricket… not the boring old slow stuff some of you oldies like.

The reason Australia get out of so many dodgy positions is that they play positive cricket and get quick runs on every type of pitch. This defensive S$@T of yesterday England batters play is boring and fails 9 times out of 10 when playing against them.

The cricket Australia play is not the cricket of the 70s and 80s

.
What do we have to do to counter McGrath?

The guy is blowing us away single handedly

We'll be lucky to get to 100 here the way McGrath is bowling

Quoted from this message




Richard Hadlee had it over Dean Jones in a similar manner. Hadlee bowled a mesmerising good length and caught many of our batsmen on the crease as McGrath is doing. So Deano decide to start coming down the wicket and attacking him. All of a sudden the good length wasn't so good and Deano smashed him. It's about the only strategy left to try against McGrath isn't it? KP is the dude to try it too, as it is expected he will not die wondering. Will it work? Who knows but this isn't and it will be facinating for us all to watch

is there anythingw wrong with the pitch? keep reading about the ball keeping low. great bowling and/or inept batting is what i'd guess.

I'm thinking more about claiming not to like cricket, I'm too grown up for all that bat and ball stuff...

In fact she's probably on this forum as we speak, preparing to give me grief! Hi baby! Yes, we're getting a pounding!

Some people have been saying it about Mcgrath that the only way to play him is to attack. Its very difficult to do that on a pitch which has variable bounce like this one.

Credit to mcg , hes found an area where it keeps a litle lower and he's seamed it a bit.

Terrible batting. Decent bowling.

Quoted from this message




As RedAussie said, our batsmen have allowed McGrath to catch them on the crease, he seems to mesmerise them.

More than decent bowling, excellent stuff from the Aussie openers.

It's still not game over, England fans should not panic - it's a Test match.
