weather looks shit but we'll definitely get a result here.
day night test using the pink ball will favour the swing bowlers especially during the night session.
the pink ball will make it hard for the batsmen to sight the seam as it leaves the bowler's hand
strange decision by root electing to bowl.
smith said he'd have batted if he won the toss.
if the poms bowl the skips out for say 200 odd then have to bat for the last 10-15 overs we may see all the hard work in the field go to waste

Aussies declared 442/8
Poms will be shitting themselves in these conditions.
Unwashed need to make sure they don't lose the game this session

Poms can’t take 20 wickets.

18 wickets so far in how many overs?

Convicts are getting nervous but a quick wicket or two will kill that off

Our bowlers will be our strength & I expect to see our batsmen reasonably positioning themselves, with competitive innings.

Think I cocked up here. Probably won’t be any washouts & thought Poms might win at Adelaide :doh:

Poms are pouring drinks over each other now. Convicts must be loving this. More sledging material

Convicts 200 behind with 7 wickets left.

Poms ahead but not as far as I expect they thought after the close yesterday

How does Moen get a go - he is an average bat at best and a part time spinner that gets twatted all over the park....

If ball isn’t moving then Jimmy and broad aren’t much use. Poms have wrong attack

Poms need to do a rain dance. Could be another 400 in first innings and lose
