    41 more runs before the clock starts ticking for Root.

    With the rate England are scoring, that would be Day 3, session 2.

    England bat deep, still Bairstow, Moeen and Woakes to come.

    And when Aus bat I doubt they would last long, rely too much om two players.

    Australia are nearly invincible on this ground. I don’t know who will get the wickets for England.

    Doing all sorts for Lyon already. Moeen could have some joy on this track. How many left-handers in the Aussie lineup apart from Warner?

    Khawaja century in my opinion. Massive home track bully and its his home ground.

    Grossly overrated.

    He can prove me wrong this series and score big runs for his country, but I doubt it. He struggles to convert and has struggled in Aus.

    15 off 50 in AUSTRALIA is pitiful.

    I would be surprised if England don't lose atleast 6 by the end of the day. And with the pace at which England is making runs, expecting a 210/6 or 210/7

    Doesn’t look a great pitch for batting to me. Slow, low and taking turn. England’s score may not be quite as mediocre as it looks.

    It is good though. If India were batting, I would expect nothing less than a 450. The wickets off fast bowlers have had a lot to do with pace. Unless Moeen has a good day, England can really struggle to pick wickets here.

    Not making any conclusion here but just an assumption.

    I am not saying that he won't do well in this series but dominating a series the way those two did might be tough. Obviously too early to make any conclusion but that was just an assumption.

    Firing people is different thing. Root isn't coming from stupendous amount of failures that we are questioning his position in the team but an assumption can be made that with this start he may not be able to match his rival mates performance in the previous tours.

    His position isn't hurting but rather the claim to become the best test bat might weaken although he will still remain one of the best test bats in the world.

    They are on track for 400+....and I wouldn't expect so much from Aussies. Mooen can also use a sharp spinning track. Outside of Smith I wouldn't be very confident abt anyone given Warner is injured, Marsh is injured and bad, and the rest are quite inexperienced.

    James Vince managed to surprise a lot of people including myself with that knock. Given his mediocre county form and poor start to his England career, his recall raised eyebrows.

    However he benefited from Australian seamers bowling a bit too full early on, allowing James Vince to bust out his cover drives.

    For all the talk of England's reliance on Cook and Root, it were the newbies Stoneman and Vince who took charge. Stoneman was rather too cautious and England haven't pulled too far away from Australia, but the pitch was slower than expected.

    England need a big knock from at least one of Malan, Ali and Bairstow.

    It is a bad selection by any metric.

    Everyone playing at this level as a batsman is capable of scoring a 50 on a good day.

    Wait till the series is over till you defend a selection that makes no sense based on the data.

    I predict England to be bowled out for under 350, Australia to make 400 at a strike rate of over 3.5 with Khawaja scoring a century.

    100 run win upcoming for Australia.

    I think the same. He'll be the prize wicket, even more so than Smith. Not so much if the ball turns for Moeen the way it is turning for Lyon.

    Jimmy will be ineffective on this pitch.

    Woakes is a trundler. He was bowling in low 120’s when he toured India. I expect the same from him.

    Broad is the only one who can threaten the batsman.

    Moen Ali can have a good time with the ball.

    Overall, Aus will whip this English attack.

    I expect Anderson to get injured by the end of this first test.

    Woakes' average pace is 140,he got injured a couple of months ago and was bowling around 135 when he came back but it's been 3 months so I'm sure he's up to full pace.

    England will be in the game if they reach 330. Meanwhile anything over 400 would put them in a good position in the match.

    Given that our lower order usually contributes more than our top order, I would honestly put us in an ok position at the moment.

    Hopefully no brainfarts in the morning though or could be 250 all out.

    In Australia the amount of runs matter but what also matters is how quick you get them. What we found out when Pak toured there was that we were regularly posting good-ish totals but we were taking too long to get anywhere and Aussie batsmen would just blast away our score in no time.

    The English are playing too slow... 190 odd in 80 overs is just inviting trouble.

    Don't you feel everyone was grossly overrating the Oz attack? I mean the hype suggested a score of 200/7 odd by England. No one particularly threatening apart from Lyon. Starc's been wayward, Hazlewood is doing the best imitation of himself and Cummins is still not showing us that pace and fire he's renowned for.

    I've always maintained that the Aussie attack is highly overrated.

    The English are playing too slow... 190 odd in 80 overs is just inviting trouble.
    This pitch is different. Looks like it will deteriorate over time, so a good toss for England to win without a doubt.

    ENG can get to 350 which will be very competitive if they get Warner cheaply.

    There's some turn but as we've seen historically overseas spinners find it tough to get there lengths right, he will need to bowl extremely well to exploit the conditions

    This BT Sport commentary is so bad. Why can't the Sky crew be commentating...


    Does cricket survive off of it's money or does it survive for it's money?

    He has done well for himself, also considering that he has not had much time to spend in the middle due to the injury and when he played in the final warm up game his time spent at the crease was short so he has done well given his rust as well, surprised that many of these fellas have stood up in their debut tour down under. The seniors have been feeling the pressure. Need a big partnership between Bairstow and Ali, these two tend to fancy batting together on and off the field just as I type this Gareh dismisses Mo

    Pitch continuing to look quite subcontinental and turgid, need to get to 320 ideally or at least 300 and then it depends how the Aussies bat.
