    good middle and lower order fight to get 268 after being 5/69.

    Johnson looks twice the player with the bat and his 2 overs at the end were a lot better.

    Hopefully there is still a little bit in it this morning as once it dries out it plays good.

    and wtf were ponting and clarke thinking. Looked like they were hanging out their clothes to dry.

    We have had a run of captains that have been hard to like. Now in the interview post play last night Ponting said he wants to be liked by everyone. He came across well but this series has had some of the worst performances that I can ever remember.

    Test is australia's to lose,i must admit i have faith in Watson,Hussey and even Haddin to score a few,with the time left i wouldnt declare until about 500lead atleast if we get that far,still 3 days of play left,should have 2 wickets for 30something runs by the end of play tomorrow,in a perfect world

    Why do you still state your opinion on cricket? Your comments on Haddin prove you've got nfi.

    Why dont you just click the ignore button instead of being a lifeless troll? I seen a greedy batsman and i said my thing,he proved me wrong and i admitted it,your just a lonely kid

    I won't be entirely comfortable until we have a 350+ lead. There is no guarantee that Johnson will fire again in the second dig, given his inconsistency of late. Let's hope that Watson, Huss and Haddin can grind out another 150 for us. 1-1 with two tests to go will be interesting.

    no point in declaring really, if the pitch is good enough for us to bat through today then we will have 500 lead but the poms will have 6 sessions to get it on a pitch that must have become benign and we ahve no specialist spinner.

    Give them 600 to chase in 5 session  but cant see that happening.
