ARRR the radio coverage and the internet are both having 'technical difficulties' at the moment - the radio coverage cut out for five minutes and I lost a huge rant on this page. The conspiracy theorist within me is going nuts.

Just trying to make a post during the 'lunch break' England only managed 205 Lee and McGrath were very 'ordinary' but bichel who was only on because Gilespie was being rested returned figures of 7-20, so that creates a bit of a selection dilema.

Blowers isnt on the radio today which is a plus. Of the english commentators christopher(?) is my fave. He is the most cynical the only one picking up on the colour of Gilchrists gloves 'the same as the dutch t-shirts' when the icc is clamping down on advertising.

Re the indian celebrations i've heard someone was killed in india in 'religious' clashes overnight.

I now look forward to Hayden and Gilchrist letting lose. Hope they give anderson a kicking. (as i write this hes just thrown one into gilchrists nuts - hope hes weraing a box)

Damien Martyn was NEVER out. That is so unfair.

OK maybe bichel will actually try.

Still plenty of batting to come 4-52.

People get killed all the time fighting over cricket.
No big deal. If you support Pukestan and stay in India, you are asking for it. And is the law of averages catching up with the Ozzies? 72/4 with Bevan and Lehmann out there.
If England win, the Pukis are out of the tournament.
C'mon, England! Go for it.

If we remove Lehman and Bevan fairly quickly, I think we are in with a chance. Just maybe. With a lot of luck :confused:

Great bowling performance by Bichel.

Beat me to it Ag. :)

Bevan is the key and the moment for the ozzies. Their last hope. Perhaps we can get him. Perhaps we won't need to.

Bevan's gonna run out of partners. This is the time we need Warnie, always good for 30 or so.

Andy Bichel has scored 6 runs from 5 balls. Helps to have an opening batsman play at number 9.
