On the first day england won the toss and elected to bat (probably a good decision as the pitch is very dry) but then promptly indulged in a good old English Batting Collapse, making only 215. Cue the aussies getting off to an even worse start, losing 4 wickets before the close of play.
On day two it looks like we've got the aussies beat, with 5 wickets falling for only 9 runs. They're on 117 for 9. I'm laughing. They're dead and buried. Then comes in their number 11, 19-year-old debutante Ashton Agar (above) who pummels us, scores 98 and breaks every record imaginable (highest-scoring number 11 ever, highest 10th wicket stand ever etc). When we finally get him out they have 280. That's 163 put on for the last wicket.
Then we lost 2 wickets early on.. but Cook and Pietersen seemed to be playing well. Until this morning when they get out and now we're 160-odd for 4, and ideally want to be batting all day and score 300+ to have any chance of winning...
