    66 for 4 is a pretty good start.

    But lets not get our hopes up too much yet... ;)

    Let's hope we can keep the pressure on them now and maybe get another wicket before lunch :)

    97 - 5 at lunch. Fantastic start. :thumbsup:

    However I remember a few years ago we won the first test but still lost the series 3-1 or something like that. So while pleased I'm not getting too excited.

    just winning the first one will shut the cocky antipodeans up from going on about about a 5-0 whitewash...

    I think this is all just a sophisticated Aussie plot to throw us off our guard. They'll let us win the first and then hammer us in the next 4, after we've been too cocky about the first game.

    :D

    have you seen the colour of the Pitch?

    Australia probably put up a decent score for such an overdone strip...

    If only we could put up a half-decent reply...... :mad:


    They're bowling really well unfortunately.

    it may as well be an Aussie pitch...

    I was *hoping* we'd just bowled really well, but they're getting even more from it than we did... :(
