Hayden, Katich and Ponting gorne
Southee is going to be a top bowler but certainly didn't expect him to take the top of the Oz order, didn't even think he would play tbh
Martin just removed Hussey, 4/96
Clarke still there on 53*, Haddin just joined him
O'Brien has removed Symonds and Watson in quick succession
Southee just back on and Clarkes arsey innings continues as he tries to leave a ball and get 4 over the slips for it
We will still fall apart at some point probably, but enjoying the fight
good first day by the sheep shaggers
will be interesting tomorrow to see if they can bat well and take a lead
After ANOTHER storm last night it's a fine sunny day, so I am taking the day off and heading to the Gabba...come on Aussies, bowl them out for under 214 and make a game of it!!!
Will be very similar conditions to yesterday, rain the night before, hot, humid and a green top.
Let's see how the sheep shaggers handle that!!!!
If NZ go on to make 300+ runs then it will prove that the Aussies are shot ducks.
NZ have a couple of good seam bowlers which suits that Gabba pitch......but their batting is questionable at best. Aussies when in form should clean NZ for 150-180....but they aren't in form sadly
they may well be in form, 4 for so far and its not even lunch, 1 a piece to each of the pacemen.
Reasonable effort so far from what i have heard on the radio, home to watch it now
Ryder sounded entertaining. Taylor will obviously be the key. I have a lot of time for Flynn, is a gutsy bugger so if he can stick around and Taylor gets going, we could have a decent test match on. I don't see Redmond making more than 40-50 runs in the series, the quality is above his limits.
NZ lead of 100, although unlikely, would be great for the contest, because i can see Australia making 350+ in the next dig and we don't chase very well
And right on cue Taylor departs, kept a little bit low, gone LBW to Lee
Don't see a lot of runs left in our lineup. Elliott is reasonable but not test standard, Vettori will be dangerous, and although Southee smashed 70 odd on debut it was a lot of slogging
Bang on - although we got them out cheaply and we aren't in form :-O
I wonder if Doug is sticking to his story that Katich is a waste of space and wouldn't last long?
bang on whilst contradicting yourself mata, ooops i mean matt?
meh - just wish i could punt as good as i pick cricket scores.Â Looking at it now really the only bowler out of form is Binga.....
This track should really flatten out over the next day or 2 (if it gets there).....Aussies will need minimum 100 more runs. Our tail hasn't wagged like it used to recently....hopefully one of them is in for a decent score.
