That ball that Swann bowled to get out Clarke was awesome. He completely missed it.

Fantastic bowling this morning though. Freddie was brilliant as ever. Great stuff. Edgbaston awaits. I might go to Headingly though for the 4/5 day.

If you don't have tickets you wont be able to get them

Went on the net last night and every day for every test is sold out. Day 5 tickets can't be brought on the door

Was so chuffed, flintoff looked awesome, as did swann

Had an interesting little exchange with one of the guys at work over Skype yesterday:

[11:10:16] Pete: looks like an england win in the test now
[11:11:14] Daren: I was pretty sure of that early yesterday, but their record 6th (?) wicket stand has cast a little doubt on it. Haven't heard any of the play so far this morning, but if they manage to bat out most of the day they'll probably win
[11:11:24] Pete: haddin has just gone
[11:11:32] Daren: \o/
[11:11:39] Daren: Ah, well that's looking more likely then

[12:01:40] Daren: Great wicket. Might actually win now :D \o/
[12:01:53] Pete: boooo
[12:03:24] Daren: Sorry, did I spoil it? Or are you supporting Australia? :confused:
[12:03:51] Pete: i am australian
[12:04:50] Daren: OH! :D
[12:04:57] Pete: shhhhh

Good job I didn't say anything too derogatory about the Aussies. ;) He doesn't sound Australian - I think he moved here when he was 4 or something.

Now you know he is Australian you can say 'G'Day' and 'Put another shrimp on the barbie' to him. All the time. :D

And also ask him if he surfs cos all Australians do according to my sources on Channel5.

Im pleased

I get the feeling that england batsmen get the impression if they fail peiterson will make up for it and now he is out that wont be the case.

I would like to see Key but i'm sure it will be Bell.

bell is confirmed. englands middle order suddenly looks very shaky. i'd be tempted to put collingwood up to 4 to add some solidity.

bell isn't a bad player, he just appears to pee himself if the bowler looks at him in the wrong way (i did actually meet him once, he seemed pretty timid).

There is nothing woring with Bell, a great choice in my opinion! everyone is hard on him because of the ashes in 2005, BUT LOOK WHO WAS BOWLING AT HIM! Bell at number 4 would be good, and hes not with petierson which i think helps him, as ive seen them play together and wehn they bat together bell cos in a shell and gets into trouble! so this might be good for him!

England now need to drop Bopara and bring in Key.

Looking a bit wet in Birmingham, could be a delayed start.

Important toss to win I think.
