It does look an excellent batting track to be fair. Probably showed how well Archer and Woakes went first up.

Unfortunately the wickets have generally been shit in this tournament and die later on. Need that not to be the case today

The 2nd short ball from Archer to Maxwell is the right length, the first one was too short and he had time to react. The really nasty ones from Archer are when they come through the crease at shoulder/chin height because they're the ones that are deceptively quick. The one he nailed Carey with was spot on (although obviously I'd prefer him not to have taken it to the face).

Morning all.  I was just up in time to see the two quick fire wickets, now a bit concerned that Maxwell is going to bludgeon us a bit.

Awful shot, Maxwell is dangerous but he's easily drawn in to playing shit shots.

It was an excellent display of the mockers.

Bowlers have been excellent the last few games.  Whatever score we restrict them to, need the batsmen to turn up today.

Rashid did for Cummins with a beauty and then scared the shit out of starc with his first delivery. Things drifted for a while but we never really let them get ahead of the rate so we were always going to get chances later in the innings. This is the last real partnership they'll have though I think, Behrendorff and Lyon aren't going to offer much, if we can see off one of these 2 soon we could be chasing a t20 score.

Great day for England so far, three early wickets, Rashid taking three middle order wickets and great captaincy to bring Archer back on to get the vital wicket of Maxwell.

Aussies haven't had any period in the game yet where they look to be getting on top.
