    I imagine the crowd are wishing Warner well out there on the boundary!

    Why are England favourites to win this test match?

    We need as many runs as possible because this pitch for the next 2 days will be so good to bat on. Money on Smith getting a double ton.

    Well the draw is not happening due to the weather allowing a full dive days, if required, and when you say favourites, there's not much between them in the betting currently. Aussies were favs 40 mins ago.

    I get your drift about the Aussie accent, generally. It's not particularly easy on the ear. Some of those old interviews with Bradman are real "nails down the blackboard" stuff. But Ponting isn't the worst I've heard.

    Jack Leach looks like the only player with a test match batting technique.

    Anybody else think Mark Wood is the spit of Banardo?

    His defensive technique is top class compared to the rest of them.

    Glenn McGrath was saying he's the only batsman we have who seems to put a high value on his wicket, and you're gonna have to work if you want to get him out. Hard to argue with that, and also pretty shocking given he's a tailender.

    I'd get to 400-450 and then declare, if I was Root. Sorry, "Rooooooooot".
