    Ex-England captain on Test Match Special

    Root is itching for the boundary to get himself going. It’s not easy. This is very similar to when I batted in one-day cricket…

  2. Eng 44-2

    Just a single and a wide from Pat Cummins third ball. The Aussie tried a couple of shorter balls at Eoin Morgan in that over but the England captain just ducked under both with relative ease.

    Joe Root is on 14 off 46 balls while Morgan is on two off 14.

    I said earlier that today was the sort of day where it’s a shame that spectators aren’t at the ground. But, if you’re an England fan you’re probably grateful you’re not there right now. This is tough going.

    With the summer that Michael Gough is having, I wouldn’t be reviewing it. He’s been that good.

  5. Eng 42-2

    Another maiden but it’s an interesting first over from Mitchell Marsh.

    Eoin Morgan absolutely crunches a drive off the first ball – so much so that sub fielder Daniel Sams has to go off and be replaced by Sean Abbott.

    There’s then an appeal for lbw as Eoin Morgan attempts to pull a ball that doesn’t really get up off the pitch. Morgan was almost flamingo-like there, but Aaron Finch wisely decides against the review as the ball pitched outside leg stump.

    Mitchell Marsh is coming on to replace Josh Hazlewood.

    England need to make sure they get 80-100 off the 10 overs from Marsh/Glenn Maxwell/Marcus Stoinis that Aaron Finch uses as the fifth bowler.

    On this wicket, England just need Root to bat for 30 or 40 overs.

  8. Eng 42-2

    That’s a much better second over from Pat Cummins and it’s the fourth maiden of the innings already.

    Cummins beats the outside edge of Joe Root’s bat as the England Test captains has an airy drive at a ball that was probably only on sixth or seventh-stump line at best.

    If you think back to Friday, 294 was enough for Australia to win. Anything around 250-260 would be very good.

  10. Eng 42-2

    Superb again from Josh Hazlewood with just a single off the last ball of the over.

    His figures are 0-19 off six overs so far.

    England are going to have to make sure they go big off the 10 overs from Glenn Maxwell/Marcus Stoinis/Mitchell Marsh today.

    We were treated to an impromptu band session from a few of the TMS team on our day off. Let me tell you, producer Henry Moeran performs the most sensational version of I Want To Break Free by Queen.

  12. Eng 41-2

    Root 12, Morgan 2

    Pat Cummins has come on to replace Mitchell Starc. This Aussie bowling line-up is relentless.

    Hello! Joe Root decides to change his bat and hits two consecutive boundaries.

    The first one is a pull that loops over square leg and away for four before a glorious drive.

    He keeps the strike with a single into square. Good batting.

    Here’s how Jason Roy was run out.

    It’s good fielding from Marcus Stoinis but it’s not a great call from Joe Root.

    I don’t think I’ve seen an England side play and and miss so much. They are getting done two or three times an over.

  16. Eng 32-2

    Another terrific over from Josh Hazlewood to end the powerplay.

    Eoin Morgan has a little flirt at one outside his off stump to end the over, but thankfully from England’s perspective, he can’t lay bat on it.

    To say that has been Australia’s powerplay would be an understatement.

    There’s been no lack of intent from England, but it’s been a little wild.

  18. Eng 30-2

    England are going nowhere here. It’s not down to a lack of intent – trust me, they’re throwing their hands at anything with a hint of width but they just don’t have the required timing at the moment.

    Mitchell Starc has ridiculous figures of 1-10 off five overs so far.

    Here’s how Jonny Bairstow fell for a seven-ball duck.

    A poor shot from a man horribly out of form.

    This Australian team have only won two of their last series away from home. This is a big moment for them. They see this an important cog as their build towards the next World Cup.
