    Getting Root and Bairstow late has swung the game in Australia's favour I reckon

    Into the lower order tomorrow morning, Hopefully we can clean them up quickly

    How unlucky was Garry not to pick up a couple of wickets? He had batsment all at sea when the ball started to turn, but could not buy an edge.

    100 runs from Curran, Broad and Ali really helped England avoid embarrassment

    Australia were sloppy in the field and missed a few chances

    Overall I think England will be happy considering where they were but my gut feeling is 400+ batting first and they are well below that

    Particularly after getting Bancroft for a duck. We gotta get 350 roughie and Khwaja also looks a bit out of form.

    I reckon we need 400+ because we will be batting last

    Steve Smith has just bought up 6,000 test runs

    He is the equal 2nd fastest to reach that Milestone

    Don Bradman did it in 68 innings, Both Sir Garfield Sobers and Steve Smith did it in 111 innings

    Khawaja and Smith have put on a 107 run partnership

    Khawaja needed a good score and he has produced

    Australia on top after day 2

    Smith is far in excess of 'quality'. World's current top batsman and just look at the list of those ranked beneath his second fastest 6,000 runs.

    Hearing the crowd get stuck into Ali when he went down to the fence makes me think we are going to hear about it later on.
    He is clearly hating every minute of this tour and just going through the motions.
    He made one remark about a racist slur in Adelaide, and has looked less and less interested in playing cricket ever since.

    A 188 run partnership from Smith and Khawaja has put us in a good position but losing Smith just before lunch hurt us

    They should have had Khawaja not long after but a no-ball from crane cost them

    Khawaja offered no shot and it was smashing into the stumps

    England whinged about it but it was pretty clear that no part of his foot was behind the line
