That means Michael Clarke plays. Not sure when it's announced Bev, perhaps not even until right before the match starts. I think you can still make changes tomorrow.

Will have to keep an eye on that then!  Don't want to lose points coz I ain't picked the 'right' player!

Will get to see most of 1st day as it should be about lunch time there when I get home from work!  yay  Last year's series was great!  With the added bonus of England winning. Very Happy

Twas great. And also tiring with all the late nights Whistle
When we won the 2nd test and it took forever to get those last 2 wickets on the last morning, I was just praying we'd get them quick. It wa so annoying. Had to be up for a 6.30am bus the next day haha.

If at first you don't succeed, you fail.

lol
You predicted 300 runs for the whole series? That was the question I think.
lol No not much good, there will probably be 300 runs on the first day of the first match. More like 6000 over the whole series, think I went for 6500 (on the basis of 1300 a match, with 800 in the first innings and 500 in the 2nd or thereabouts).
And theres a possible 200 wickets and I think I guessed 180 or so over the series.

217-3 At tea. Had the live score on at work all day, managed to avoid anyone seeing me with it open lol
Home to watch the last session now.
Really suprised Giles is playing. Panesar played all the warm up games and Giles didn't play at all, so it's a strange decision. But the commentators say it's because Jones can't keep to Panesar apparently. Have to wonder if it's really worth playing a keeper who's a marginally better batsman if it means we have an inferior keeper and bowler. Still, Giles has looked much better than usual so far and took a big wicket.
Really need a couple of wickets in the last session now to end the day honours even. In a lot of trouble if we don't get Ponting out soon.

This match is all but gone in terms of winning. It's all about batting well and saving it now tbh. Even after Ponting and Hussey are out, if at all, there's still Gilchrist and Clarke to come. Then Lee and Warne who are not usually easy to get out.
From this postion Australia should manage 550 by the 3rd session tomorrow, and probably declare somewhere between 550 and 600 and put us in for the last 40 minutes or so. Be very tough after 2 whole days out in the heat, I can see us easily being something like 30-3 at the close of play tomorrow.
My Dad got today pretty much spot on. Told me at work that Autralia had won the toss and were 37-0 after 5 overs, and he said "they will finish the day about 350-4."
