And the collapse is on, 16/2! Strauss and Bopara gone.

Harmisson in for flintoff.

Been a messy morning in general, apartently england have been runnning around like headless chickens beacuse of injuries. Aussies going for a pace attack, no hauritz

Absolute shambles.

The toss was delayed due to Prior possibly being injured, although luckily he isn't.

Our batting looks fragile when Strauss doesn't score and no Pietersen to step in and tidy up.

Bet the management are glad they didn't drop Broad now.

Oh deary deary me. We need some wickets after tea to have any hope of winning or even drawing this one.

Looking like a decider at the Oval methinks.

I'd have batted.

The ball swung all day, we just didn't apply ourselves either batting or bowling.

Very poor from England.

Would you make many changes for the next test?

England middle ordered added 16 runs in two innings - (Bopara/Collingwood/Bell)

I for one would change one of them, either Bopara or bell. In an ideal world Ramps would be called up but i highly doubt he will. I would play Key.

Bowling wise I would keep the same attack, Harmison was unlucky, headingly really doesnt suit his bowling but a quick bouncy oval pitch will suit it.

I would drop bopara, not really good in the field and hasnt batted very well either, Ramps would be amazing to see but not likely(hes hit 134 not out today), Trott might be a good choice or Key, someone on form would be good/who plays well on the oval pitch!

I would select Key over Bopara and get Bell out for Trott.

Key must play at 3 in the next test, we need some experience in there.

Ramps is a no go, he will not play.

I read a peice in the newspaper earlier with Tres saying he would Definatley listen to england selectors if they approached him. He is the leading english run scorer this season, and still is one of the best players around.

In other news im going to lords tomorrow to watch day 2 of essex v middlesex. Bopara and cook are both playing for essex. If ravi gets a big score he will cement his place imo.

It's a worry that I'm happy we've only lost 1 wicket so far this morning. :|
