I went today. England were poor with the bat, but Murtagh was very good and there was a sense that this could happen. Look at the Aussies yesterday - these guys canít - instinctively - play red ball cricket anymore. Their heads says go at the ball when it should be a case of shutting up shop. Iím still convinced weíll end the summer having won the World Cup and the Ashes, so letís hope the papers donít go for them.

Well, this is pleasant.

Not that there's any score where I'd be absolutely confident in our batting overhauling it. But better this than 400.

This is how it will be all summer I reckon. A battle to see whose top 6 is the worst.

Surely we can all just apply the Reg school of thought and reason that because the Aussies haven't won a series on English soil for 14 years that it is now impossible that they can ever do so again?

Conversely we could apply the school of thought he has that we're England and obviously will always lack the bottle to win anything.

Or you could just look at the fact our batting isn't very good, and so see it being a bit of a struggle.

Both sides have some decent but flawed players, but Smith is a class above and was the single handed difference in this test. Gotta hope he does a McGrath in 2005 really, or we discover some hitherto unknown major weakness in the next week.
