This is only slightly worse than I thought we'd start to be honest.

I said to friends that we'd be around 75/6 at lunch. We are going to have to bat out of our skins now to get 75 in total this innings.

Had to chuckle at the commentators debating where the 5th test should be played as it could be a decider….the only way the 5th is a decider is if the first four get washed out.

Questionable decision to bat first and then the worst start possible with Burns getting bowled first ball of the series by a leg stump half volley.  Hate to be pessimistic, but think the tone for the series is already set.

The series will be 5-0 unless weather intervenes. That's been blatantly obvious for ages.

Burns in particular is a dreadfully poor batsman at this level to play the number of Test's that he has.

Poor technique and absolutely no idea where his stumps are.

The position of his front foot was bizarre.

Stokes gone now.  29-4.

He got a free pass in the summer when the media focus was on getting Sibley out of the team…..

The cupboard is pretty bare but maybe Bairstow opens with Hameed next game.

Pretty short odds that Woakes will be top scorer in this innings now

147 all out  Comes to something when your relieved that you've posted over 1 hundred.  I live an hour north of Brisbane, it's overcast and v muggy all day today, the pitch is juiced and green. 

If you're still not choosing to bowl in those circumstance's then you'll never bowl 1st in your life. Utterly mental decision that never looked like working. Like Nasser Hussain on 02 but in reverse.

Listened to it on the radio, i kept falling asleep and waking up to different batsmen at the crease. I was thinking I would be waking up to a disastrous first inning ls score, but 147 is a pretty good score for this England team isn't it? It's more than they usually get.

I have no idea what Burns was thinking walking across his stumps, laughable.

Australia have to bat on this deck too, a green top. The more that ball ends up over the rope though, the ball will carve up pretty quickly and that attack will get no benefit.

Oh well through that all out of the window. Absolutely appalling.
