Dear Krystal I realise that many parts of Lancashire are insular and in bred but surely the delights of Hash Browns and fried onions with breakfast have filtered through the barricades?

Whats Warner smoking?

Against Australia IN Australia...

Sehwag 833 @ 59.50
Dravid 972 @ 48.60
Tendulkar 1522 @ 58.54
VVS Laxman 1081 @ 54.05

They are impressive numbers. Another brainless d!ckhead in Baggy Green, a lot in common with his captain.

It's not all bogan-speak.

Cricket in a nutshell. Again bleeding obvious.

No kidding.

Maybe he has political ambitions? Not very bright, stating the obvious whilst speaking without saying much.

Anyone watching?

Zaheer looks fit - by god he looks like he lost more weight than he gained between the world cup and the England tour! Hope that means his legs are capable of taking the weight too. Ishant looks all right too, his third over just finished and I wish he'd bowl a middle stump line to the lefties - the ball needs to angle away more. The speed gun from his end is not on. Still, early days.

Say, what's with Australia and left-handed opening batsmen? Apart from Watson who was shoehorned in, there have been.... Slater and Blewett since the days of Mark Taylor's captaincy! Langer, Hayden, Jacques, Hughes, Katich, Warner, even Chris Rogers and now Cowan... even amongst stopgap openers there have been Hussey and Gilly. You guys sure put the 'south' in the southpaw!

Warner will never be a Sehwag. You just don't see Sehwag attempt that kinda shot. And Shaun Marsh, in his first five balls, looks ordinary. Will Aus regret picking him over Khwaja? I hope so

G'day Bombay Duck

I am watching drom the couch, but less than impressed.

Warner - an excitment machine, but a test opener? Not until he understands Test Cricket and the role an opener should play. Silly shot.

Marsh- is better than that, but I don't know why they dropped Khwaja.

I am feeling a big ton from Ponting and Cowan is playing smart.

Sharma impressive as usual.

The pitch will end up being a belter so we need runs.

15 minutes more and I shall be reheating a plate of leftovers. Hope you enjoy the day (or night) mate.

As the Indians refuse to embrace technology and won't have anything to do with DRS will be interesting to see how much they whinge when a decision goes against them.......in light of the Cowan decision.

" but never hard of fired bread before "

Freudian slip here I assume at the potential delight of eating fried bread produced by bakers who have been made redundant as a result of Tory policies........

And now, back to the ongoing saga / debacle.... or crock of s$t...whichever term you prefer.... currenlty masquerading as cricket in a land far, far away.....

Fell asleep after the lunch break when play didn't resume. I'm not sure I missed much.

Love the way Cowan bats. I've always preferred patient batsmen over frenetic one, and he chose his shots well. Hope he sticks around longer.

Yadav bowled well in the little I saw, and from what I read Zak did too with the old ball. I think this was the first day in years when India used just four bowlers in a day's play. And by the looks of it did not have a poor over rate either. Interesting.

Can't guarantee I'll be up tonight though

and Hussey
Doesn't really count. He's so over the hill he's face down in moss in the valley floor 50ft below sea level.

Seriously though, the ICC must implement the DRS and take it out of Dhoni's and BCCI's hands.

After 5 sessions I think India bowled reasonably well at times with two lapses, firstly trying to bounce Ponting after lunch gave Australia a free 30 odd, and bowling short and wide crud to the tail giving Australia a bonus 60-80. FFS, bowl to hit the top of off stump bringing in caught, bowled and LBW, interspersed with the odd yorker and the odd bouncer to the throat. Short and wide outside off stump may get the odd caught in the cordon but it bleeds runs. Yadav looks great. The Indian attack isn't weak by any means, it just loses its "tightness"(discipline) at times.

Warner needs a reality check, England will eat him alive in England; Cowan looks good; Marsh will be found wanting in England, maybe No5 for him?; Ponting looked OK but he's no Dravid; Clarke, WTF? I think he plays the odd premeditated shot like the straight one that he left that took off stump against NZ, I mean who the hell cuts a chest high ball over off stump?; Hussey needs to get a time slot on the comedy channel, regardless if he didn't knick it, he wouldn't have made much anyway, made a Zaheer Khan half tracker medium pacer look like a Big Bird Garner effort ball on a green top; Haddin's a has-been-who-never-was; The Aussie tail is getting more and more impressive.

Clarke has to stop hiding at 5 and sacrificing young blokes at 3, he should go to 3 or f*ck off.

I thought Phil Hughes had a poor technique but Gautam Gambhir makes Hughes look like Arthur Morris. That was embarrassing, to have techniques like Dravid (I see why he's called "The Wall" ), Tendulkar and VVS in the same side makes Gambhir stand out like a dogs bollocks.

I've been waiting months to watch VVS, I hope he delivers AT LEAST a ton.

Any fellow Aussies care to comment on Haddin's keeping? Is he the worst post war gloveman in baggy green? Is he the worst gloveman currently playing first class cricket in Australia (I include BBL, Ryobi and Sheffield Shield)? That dropped catch off Sehwag was an abomination, and the w@nkers in the commentary box (9WWOS) gloss over it and make zero comment.

I'm always calling for over-the-hill old blokes to go and stop being greedy cnuts ala Hussey but Dravid and Tendulkar look sooo good.

C'mon India I'm looking for 3/240 at stumps Day2, 4/350 at lunch, 5/470 at tea, 7/600 at stumps Day3. Sorry ozmates I want the pr!ck Sutherland and CA to see once for all the Emperor (Australian cricket) hasn't got a stitch on (vis--vis selection, scheduling, match priorities and development) abd then just maybe we may have a glimmer of getting The Ashes back in 2013.

Not ONE Australian in the top 15 run scorers in 2011.

LOL very good post, although no matter how angry I get at Aussie selectors I could never wish for an Aussie loss. In saying that I love watching India they are truly a joy to watch.

Can someone explain why India don't want the DRS, are they just flexing their muscle cause they can or is it something else. Strange.

I think we are getting close to the right mix in the side. As much as I am a Ponting fan it would be better if he gave it away before England. I'm reasonably happy to let this current team play out the Indian series and give blokes like Marsh Cowan and Warner a decent go at cementing a spot in the side.

Haddin, an absolute howler today but what are our choices??

Hussey will get runs but like Ponting should give it away before England.

Watson will come back in and should bat at 6 Clarke at 3 Marsh at 4 Khwaja 5. Something like that. I do hope Warner can adjust his game to the proper form of cricket because his bashing with Cowan playing a more traditonal role and holding up his end could be lethal.

On another point Stuey Mcgill somebody tell him he is dreaming, talk about delusional.
