Terrible bowling with the new ball. England on top now.

Credit to Bairstow. He's never done anything of note against Australia, and to be blunt his Test career is pretty **** except for a one/one and a half year period a few years ago, but he has shifted momentum here. 

The Aussie quicks went away from line and length and it cost them. Pattinson was way too pumped up, he was bolwing 4-5 mph quicker and loses his accuracy. They need to turn it around and soon.

It will come, plenty of runs in the bank still and one of these falls massive pressure on England. Would still rather be in the Australian shed at this stage.

I always find it odd how the lunch break often decides how the day's innings goes or shortly thereafter, before lunch Bairstow & Stokes looked they are going to knock it over in two hours on their own.

Sarnie and a cup of tea waddle on out thinking we've got this and a good 'un takes one of them out and then it's twitchy sphincter time for all concerned, to be honest if England do it then fair play they would have earned it, and it sets up the last two tests for a real proper series with meaning.

I am going for England to get within around 60 - 70, 359 is just too much to chase.

Next 2 hrs is massive in the context of this series...

as long as B & S stay in there for another half hour , get to the 259 mark , then the 300 mark that crowd will bring them home, it's a bugger i have to go to bed to get up early for work but can't leave this.. plus the Swans are going top tonight.

All this short ball crap to a tail ender. Just stick it on a good line & length and make him play. :xmad:

That should have been the end. Who throws to the bowler from behind square on the boundary? Not to mention that 6 earlier that would have been absolutely swallowed by the fielder if they didn't have the ropes in 10 meters.
