There will be Americans who don't know what you're talking about. I think I'll be the first. I'd guess some sort of sport. Perhaps water polo. Maybe not though, since Shakey said 'the first hour' and I never would have believed horses could swim for that long.

What an incredible morning session. I left the room for a minute and missed the 5th wicket!! Gilchrist is going to take some shifting but at this rate we''ll skittle them all out by close of play today. Mind you, it's early days yet and we still have to bat on what appears to be a bowler-friendly pitch.....better get some lunch in before the afternoon session.

I had been mentally preparing a 'cricket's-the-winner' post, but it seems that may not be necessary.
While I think cricket does need England to be able to beat Australia, an Ashes test is hardly the time or place for that, is it.

Yes cricket is the winner. Great stuff!

I think that anyone who likes cricket - whatever their nationality - will accept the bowling from Glen MacGrath was the best spell of controlled pace that we are ever likely to see...........The figures would tend to support such a view. He just did not bowl anything loose.

The slope of the Lord's ground may well have played a big part and he tends to be successful on this pitch - but all credit to the man for this performance. A man who was subject to booing by some sections of the crowd when his name was announced. As a good sport and an England supporter - and watching his subsequent reaction - I do hope that we have heard the last of this booing. Otherwise - I fear it will be a very one-sided series.

The turning point may well turn out to be that fantastic catch on the boundary that cost Pieterson his wicket. And the one that he dropped (on top of the other two on the first day).

No way will England win and their only chance of a draw is rain. As it stands now they need 318 to win and Australia has 3 wickets left, not a hope in hell of England making anything near 300 against this bowling attack. What Glen McGrath leaves undone, Brett Lee will finish.

What a match. It's certainly not over yet. Not until Pieterson's back in the pavilion. What a find he is. Maybe not even then. There was no Oz batsman that I saw who wasn't intimidated by the bowling. (I didn't see Clark) Good match. Cricket is the winner whoever wins.

Remember that Miracles can happen - especially in Ashes matches....

It was a miracle when Jones finally held one of our many catches! Ironic - after his 3 dropped catches - that Pieterson was thought to be a stronger fieldsman than Grahame Thorpe.

For ball-by-ball commentary check this out. It refreshes every 65 seconds.
For the laptop-enabled this would be very handy in the bus, train, church, at work, etc...

In the top LH corner of that page click on 'Cricinfo home'.
On that page you will see a button for 'Live video'. I haven't tried it yet, I only just found it and play has ended for the day, but everything else at the Cricinfo site seems to work.

Apart from Pierterson, the England batsmen fail to move their feet to the pitch of the ball. The result is that the bat is far too far from the body when they play their shots. They should be watching film of Ken Barrington in my opinion to see how it is done . And I am an Aussie!
Still..it has been a good game
