Undercooked yet again. The sad thing is, none of us are in the least bit surprised.

The worrying thing for me is that my main thought, like OzVilla and Prop Joe, was relief that we made 147. I was fearing worse.

I think the one thing they canít really be criticised for is being undercooked. Thatís not their fault, but it does make it strange that we chose to bat first given how undercooked we were and the conditions we were presented with.

My dad always says - never judge until both sides have batted, might look quite different this time tomorrow

As you say - undercooked is a given. 

I would have liked to have seen Broad in the line up

Broad should have played. We need to bowl and field out of our skins on day 2. Conditions will probably be challenging for batting and we need to absolutely nail our lines and lengths, not give anything away, and catch perfectly.

It's your fault for jinxing us! We were on for 600 until you got involved 😉

As others have said, you can't judge a pitch until both sides have batted on it. I don't think we have the firepower to stop the Aussies getting a solid lead, but you never know.

This is where Archer is such a huge miss. The Aussies didn't like facing him in 2019, and with the extra bounce, you think he'd have the pace to at least unsettle them and give us a chance.

Wood is fast and a very good bowler, but does he have that same fear factor?

Yeah, getting painful. It's got that 1990s feel about it.
