I reckon who ever bats first will win, Edgbaston has a reputation of high scoring test matches, so lets hope England get in First. Watched Michael Vaghan on Sunday seemed to be back to form, but will he be fit for the game, anyone the latest about him.

I reckon that whoever gets their game together at the lineout will get more penalty corners, but will only convert them to handovers if they are on pole position in the peloton.

Watch out for the bunker behind the 17th.

Well a good start by England,over 400 and hit with aggresion.
Australia were saved by the rain but we will know in the morning.
I feel that the first test result was a relief to the Australians,I think they know they are against a better side than they have played against in years.I think the selectors have shown faith in a young team who would have learnt a lot from the first test.If England do win the next test then what an exciting series this will be.
Great stuff.

Perhaps this will be seen as wasted opportunity to pile on a really big score? Mind you to do it at over 5 runs per over was good but i suspect the Australians will be able to match this....

I didn't see much of it, but it seems like it was a good first day's play. At the moment it seems that we have a match on our hands.

Vaughn & Bell could have done a bit more, and I can't believe Jones is still in the team, but still, a score to defend.

I had thought we may have been in for a bigger total but 407 isn't bad. Tommorrow morning should be interesting. If we do get a couple of early breakthroughs, I might even start getting optimistic.

Trouble wth the aussies though is that if one department falls short, a couple from the other often seem to make up for it...

I will certainly make the advanced buying of tickets for test matches on Sunday - a bit unadvisable........

I looked first thing if the wickets would be falling quickly - but only three have fallen by lunch. The cricket has not been quite as exciting or the scoring not so fast as yesterday but it has been just as interesting.

The England captain has had a good day as a fielder - including a fine direct-hit and run-out.

-------
What do the aussie's think of Warne's batting today? I'd thought he might at least have tried to stick around a while and I know he can bat well but he seemed to me to be almost intent on commiting suicide.

Warne's batting was 'iffy' but he is after-all - in the team for his bowling. Which on the evidence of the delivery that got Strauss's wicket - is worrying as the pitch is only going to favour him more.

The only hope is if the match position does not allow Ponting to set the sort of close attacking fields that helped make Warne's bowling so effective at Lords.

Although I am hoping England win this one and two more,I cannot but marvel at Shane Warne`s bowling.His two dismisals of Strauss were breath taking,but overall his bowling is a pleasure to watch.He will be sadly missed when he quits test cricket and it is rumoured that this is his last tour,but what a craftsman.
This Ashes clash is so far living up to and surpassing all expectations.Out lads will fight to the finish win or lose.
What a combination of Peterson and Flintoff, at last they both clicked together and with a bit of experience they will be feared by teams Worldwide.I must applaud the selectors for taking a chance on Peterson they would have come in for a lot of stick if he had let them down.
Can we get another 250?
We shall know tommorow.

Agreed Alan, Warne is an outstanding bowler. I remember seeing him when he first played a test over here and was amazed and I was still amazed watching Strauss fall today. Mind you, having seen him spin the ball so often, I was probably even more amazed at his bouncer at Pieterson in the first test.

Gentlemen

You are watching history with Warne. I have been watching Tests since the early 1950s and have never seen a bowler as good. I have seen Tyson, Statham, Roberts , Lillee, Thomson, Griffith, Garner, Snow, Lock, Benaud, Lindwall, Miller, Hall and countless others who were superb but this bloke is amazing. A good test this one

Enjoy

At least someone brave enough to make a prediction.

England will struggle to make about 150 and fail to bowl Australia out.

It looks as if Flintoff (the best England bowler) will not be able to bowl and as there will be no time pressure - the Australians will be able to make the required runs very easily.

But I hope that I am proved completely wrong........

Well 181 and they didn't make the tea interval.

It is just possible for England to still win - but with a batting performance like that one (a few notable exceptions)- would they deserve it?

Warne's final tally was 7 - I think. A bowler that is definitly over-the-hill......

No test side has scored more than 280 to win on this ground. It is interesting that the bookies currently have Autralia as favourites to win.
