Updates for the 1st Day, 2nd Test

Hi guys,

Here is my run down on what is happening for the First day of the 2nd test:


 England has named an unchanged side:

1 Andrew Strauss, 2 Alastair Cook, 3 Ian Bell, 4 Paul Collingwood, 5 Kevin Pietersen, 6 Andrew Flintoff (capt), 7 Geraint Jones (wk), 8 Ashley Giles, 9 Matthew Hoggard, 10 Steve Harmison, 11 James Anderson

Australia also has named an unchanged side:

1 Justin Langer, 2 Matthew Hayden, 3 Ricky Ponting (capt), 4 Damien Martyn, 5 Michael Hussey, 6 Michael Clarke, 7 Adam Gilchrist (wk), 8 Shane Warne, 9 Brett Lee, 10 Stuart Clark, 11 Glenn McGrath.

Toss will be soon and all important (although both sides have only one specialist spinner).

Flintoff has won the toss and will bat. Apparently he didn’t even give a Toss interview. THIS IS DEFINITELY ON!


Lunch score: 2/58. Both openers gone. Clark 2 wickets. All bowlers doing a good job. 58 runs in a session? Come on!

England have pushed on to 2/100 – Collingwood 33, Bell 23. Bowlers have been a bit looser.


3/177 Bell (60) out, Pietersen (10) in. Collingwood 63. Lee the wicket taker caught and Bowled.


3/192  Pietersen hits Warne for six. Lets see if the greatest wicket taker of all time gets the last laugh.
