FrancoFile: I'm happy Root got a half-century. He and Bresnan are both solidly in. Just grind em out, 2-3 runs an over, let the bowlers have a full day off.
macadamnut: I thought that Windies tie yesterday wiped me out, and here I am sitting in a warm room trying to watch two matches at once.
WhyteRaven74: so if Root gets the century, will England just declare at that point?
phalamir: Make the Aussies stand around in the heat all day
WhyteRaven74: phalamir: Make the Aussies stand around in the heat all dayIt's only 71 degrees in London today.
phalamir: Damn. I hate Celsius.
macadamnut: WhyteRaven74: so if Root gets the century, will England just declare at that point?I think they'll want 450 after that New Zealand experience.
macadamnut: I say declare about six overs before close; new ball and fading light.
syrynxx: How do you dig someone out of a hole? Isn't digging what makes a hole in the first place?
midpoint: I have a ticket for the first day of the Durham test. Glad it is the first day!
steerforth: The highest fourth innings run chase for a draw is 654.
WhyteRaven74: steerforth: The highest fourth innings run chase for a draw is 654.Well the record at Lord's is 318-1. I'm not sure Australia has 318, let alone 400 plus in them
steerforth: Cripes, forgot it was only day three
steerforth: I'm not sure they have $1.50 for bus fare home.
WhyteRaven74: steerforth: I'm not sure they have $1.50 for bus fare home.bwahahahaa
steerforth: especially now that some bloke called Root has scored a ton against us.
Anderson's Pooper: 2 innings and 2 centuries for England!
steerforth: An Australian bowler could still rack up a century. Of runs against his bowling.
WhyteRaven74: steerforth: An Australian bowler could still rack up a century. Of runs against his bowling.Now now, it's no time to be negative, it's not like Root is going to end up with a double century....today.
steerforth: True. He has a whole, glorious, heatwave (snort) filled day tomorrow.
WhyteRaven74: steerforth: True. He has a whole, glorious, heatwave (snort) filled day tomorrow.What gets me about them talking about playing in the heat, it's like they've never watched India play in Bangladesh, or vice versa, or Sri Lanka against India or vice versa? Last time I watched Sri Lanka playing India the temperature was somewhere near "Are you out of your mind?".
steerforth: /First slip is wearing a farking sweater.
macadamnut: steerforth: Cripes, forgot it was only day threeOh wow, so did I.
FrancoFile: Let's have Root carry his bat all the way and get 200 before they declare.
WhyteRaven74: FrancoFile: Let's have Root carry his bat all the way and get 200 before they declare.I'm wondering why Australia hasn't asked for the new ball.
FrancoFile: Root and Bell are utterly fearless now - their RR is over 7 for the last 10 overs. At this rate they'll have a lead of 600 by stumps tonight!
