    Play will start early today to make up for lost time yesterday

    The game is in the balance with England at 4/196 so today's first session is hugely important for both teams

    If England can get through to lunch relatively unscathed they could end up with something around that 400 mark

    That being said if Australia pick up 2 or 3 before lunch and England don't improve their run rate then they will struggle to get 300 I reckon

    It will be a fascinating battle, Just the way the Ashes should be !!

    Excellent performance by the Aussie team to take 6 for 39 in the session before lunch.

    We were in all sorts at 4/76 but these 2 have now put on 89 runs and are looking good

    Still England's day and they are in front at this stage I reckon

    Tomorrow morning could decide the test

    If these 2 stay there for another 20 or 30 overs then we should build a good lead but if England strike early then we may skittled for less than 250 and hand England a good lead

    It's been a great contest so far, Both teams fighting hard and it's been great to watch

    Well done to Shaun Marsh as well who has done a magnificent job today

    Plenty of criticism thrown is way (Me included) but he is doing the job atm

    Long series but a good start from him

    Steve Smith is a freak, He is climbing the ladder for most centuries, Highest average and most runs by Aussie batsmen

    Special mention to Pat Cummins whose innings helped save Australia

    Lyon is getting better with age.
    The tour to the sub continent has helped his form.
    If he can stay fit he has another 10 years in him.

    Great start to a tricky chase. Bancroft looks very good technically and Warner might finally have eliminated the stupidity from his game.
