    England bowled their way back into the match by getting Australia out for 155.

    Now Crawley and Burns are batting very well and England seem to be on track for victory

    England one out, all out today. I've seen that before a few times when a team is chasing a difficult target and gets off to a good start. Even at 0-68 their task was probably still objectively hard given what had been seen from the pitch.

    England has only had a worse batting average in a series of 3+ tests four times in the last 100 years, one of them being in India last year.

    10-58 is England's worst collapse in #Ashes cricket since 1948.

    Just about sums up the tour.

    (NB it was 10-56).

    Yes they certainly had a big task ahead of them, I thought, at 0/68 and at 1/80-odd, but it seemed not impossible. The wicket was playing flat and was only getting better. I wouldn't say I was getting nervous but it felt like I could start to get nervous in the next hour if it went their way. Green's 3 wickets in that spell were crucial.
    So what's your excuse? For running like the devil's chasing you?

    See you in another life, brotha.

    Australia are playing the first test against Pakistan but it is not going well
    Pakistan 1/200

    Lyon has the only wicket and we went with 3 pacemen which might be a mistake, perhaps Swepson should have played

    Must be a few records broken there. Did Rod Marsh's passing distract them?
    Zionism is racism as defined by the UN, Israel by every dirty means available steals land and water, kill Palestinian freedom fighters and civilians, and operates an apartheid system to drive more Palestinians off their land

    And we can't play all our games at home, unfortunately.

    How on earth is it unfortunate we cannot play all our games at home? It is brilliant we are able to play in Pakistan.

    Of such roads, the Romans would have been proud.

    Also, it would have been a lot worse if Pakistan had scored at any sort of pace.
