England vs Australia 4th Test, Trent Bridge

Post by VTR on Thu 06 Aug 2015, 9:00 am

First topic message reminder :

As The Ashes thread has gone on a tangent arguing over who is SA's best fast bowler, let's get back on topic with a match thread.

Conditions for the 5 days look generally dry so there will be an almost certain result for either team. Also looking cloudy for large periods, so the loss of Anderson might be huge for England

England: Cook, Lyth, Bell, Root, Bairstow, Stokes, Buttler, Ali, Broad, Wood, Finn

Australia: Rogers, Warner, Smith, S Marsh, Clarke, Voges, Nevill, Johnson, Starc, Hazlewood, Lyon

Love what I just read on BBC Sport.

Mitchell Johnson is the new man... He's batting earlier than he would have bowled first change.

Get to your nearest bookies, put some 10p bets on dogs and horses while watching the cricket.

Just looking at the scorecard. That Extras lad is pretty tasty; the Aussies should have him higher in the order.

Steven Finn didn't take a wicket in his first over. Needs to be replaced.

why even try...to prove ( or disprove ) their dependence on Anderson.

they are  very highly dependent on Anderson...who is their all time great bowler....his numbers also speak the same language.

English positions should be ...we are considerably weakened in bowling without Anderson in seaming / swinging conditions....and that would be an honest statement

Biggest partnership so far is that of the sixth wicket which put on all of 8 runs.

We need to close this out now. Make sure even if we only make 200 its a decisive lead. I don't think we will find it easy batting but surely won't make such a mess of it

Need to remember, in a recent match Northant went three down to a hattrick off the first three balls of the match, but still went on to beat Worcs. Whistle

aussie on the radio "Mitch to the rescue". he sounds like he's confident they're winning with the mitch dominating the eng bowlers.

This stand of 15 is now Australia's biggest partnership of the innings. Australia on damage limitation mode - a tad too late for that though surely? They will do very well to post a score in excess of 100 at the moment.

Broad snares his sixth wicket with Starc caught in the slips. Australia 46 for 8.

Johnson's valiant opener-like batting completely undermined by Starc.

Six for Broad. Closing in on Harmison's 7/12 which happened a lifetime ago.
