Preamble

Morning, afternoon, evening all. Well, we were treated to a whirlwind yesterday, weren’t we? From 12-3 and calls for Bellerive to be stripped of Test position, to a run-a-ball hundred from Head, to further delivery of The Cam Green potential, and that ceaseless surprise about what James Anderson could and would have done with it all.

All in all, Australia finished with 241-6 – a scoreline most would be satisfied with after a complete day’s play, only that this was achieved in 59.3 overs. Perhaps this isn’t quite the Chief Executive’s Wicket expected ahead of the game.

Nevertheless, both teams will be hoping to push things on today. For Australia, quick runs and a shot at England under lights, and for England, crossed fingers that the Bellerive wicket does flatten out, as is the local potential.
