England are 107-2. Will they hang on for a win? does anyone care?
And I don't think they will hang on. I hope they do though.
But we won't hang on. Pietersen can hardly walk, Collingwood's had his rib cage ripped open and Flintoff's ankle is made of sand and sponge. We'll finish in 257 all out. Close, but not close enough.
I think England CAN win, but probably won't. The 300+ that they need doesn't seem THAT high a score
The wicket is deteriorating and they are facing one of the greatest spinners of all time.
and maybe ben warn
I can't work out if it's the greatest thing ever or sickeningly middle class and irritating.
if YOU find it irritating
for me to get it...
Still think they'll do it, Traynor?
for the traditional middle order collapse...
is literally destroying us.
Muralitharan's got 6 now.
But if Warne wasn't around, he'd be the best there is.
when he waiting to face the next ball?
Did Monty Panesar really just hit a 4 then a 6 off Murali?!
The third highest scorer in England's second innings.
after drawing this series are we really still one of the best Test teams in the world?
Is our Ashes honeymoon truely over now?
I look forward to some swift backtracking by certain people in the media.
the media will proclaim a return to the dark days of English cricket. Then we'll pwn Pakistan and we'll be the best team in the world again.
Sri lanka have the genius Murali. Just give him credit where it's due. he's brill, and yes the pitch was the best for him, but i hate it wen people just don't acknowledge sheer bloody talent.
ur lucky you were there. i missed it on tv yesterday :(. i went to the 5th day at Lords which was great. best way to unwind :).
