Good decision IMO for England to bat, if they can get 400+ run lead by tomorrow morning then they could have at least 4 sessions to bowl out the aussies

Good decision to bat again, worries about the weather though

should declare around 280 and make em bat needing 500

A declaration of 280 would give Australia 2 whole days to chase down a large total but given the likelihood of rain in forthcoming days this does seem like a judicious option as rainy conditions will be more conducive to swing. Strauss quite rightly, did not enforce the follow on as his bowlers were unable to extract too much movement during this morning's play due to current conditions favouring the batsmen, as was evident from the Australian tail. Also England's attack appears to be slightly weakened with Flintoff not bowling.

As I speak, Cook has just played across the line and paid with his wicket.

So boring - the only reason they play cricket in the summer is because all the decent sports are on their off-season.

That's why the Ashes can't coincide with the Olympics or the world cup - no-one would be bothered.

Easy to say with hindsight but with current condition favouring the batsmen, would it be wise to have put the Australians in again with the likelihood of them taking a challenging lead before the start of England's 2nd innings on a wicket which may offer swing? Also the wicket tends to deterioriate with age that benefits spinners and sometimes seam movement.

The decision not to enforce the follow on was very judicious in my opinion based on the circumstances surrounding the current state of the wicket, weather predictions and the difficulty of chasing totals on the final innings. Historically, teams batting last do not chase 300+ totals very well. My only concern is that England may choose to bat on for longer than necessary in order to ensure that a winnable total is out of the reach of Australia - this backfired over in the recent series in the Caribbean where there was not enough time to bowl out the opposition. Those are the decisions the captain must make.

As I wrote this, the ball now appears to be swinging so maybe Strauss's decision may not have been so straightforward!

Ravi Bopara worries me a bit as he plays too many shots away from his body. Mind you Pietersen is obviously very unconventional in his batting but is capable of plundering runs, but he has much better hand-eye coordination than most.

maybe..but considering that strauss is on his home turf he should know whats what! he needs to get the aussies into bat again this evening for 10 overs otherwise it will be a dull draw

Quite.
If you have no interest then why bother posting apart from to attempt to ruin the thread. I've deleted all off topic/thraed spoiling posts so please do not post any more. Thanks

The drawn 1st Test was certainly not dull - well I enjoyed it anyway but there's not much of my finger nails left! Putting Australia in before close of play this evening may be a little premature. The commentary also discussed the situation whereby had Australia been forced to follow on they would have believed in a sniff of victory if England had to bat last on bowler friendly conditions.

Strauss certainly knows the Lord's wicket but I would be amazed if he declared adn put Australia in with 10 overs in the day left. Given that typically a team can score 300-350 runs per day and with 2 full days remaining (after this one) it would be totally outlandish to make such a decision, even if time may be lost to rain in the next couple of days. At the very least, is to offer Australia a run chase versus time limit challenge and test whether Australia would be brave enough to take such a challenge on. I don't think Strauss will even offer such a challenge as he is defensive (like his predecessors) and would opt to make a safe declaration instead.

Well, well, well. Who would have thought that Australia are in with a sniff of creating history with not only the highest ever 2nd innings batting last at Lords but also tearing asunder the World record run chase? England really have no excuse if Australia pull this one off as they have had the better of the conditions - i.e. bat when the Sun is out whereas Australia have batted in overcast conditions and on a pitch that inevitably wear with age (although these days, pitches do not deteriorate as much as they used to).

Did Strauss declare too early or should England have pushed the run chase further towards 600 to make the 2nd Test out of the reach of the Australians? Would pushing for a 600 lead have led to criticism of a defensive declaration (as was the case in the Caribbean)?

The weather report appears to be pretty good for tomorrow which is a worry for the one-dimensional England attack who require help from the conditions to take wickets. Today was the golden opportunity for the England bowlers to put their team in the driving seat but the attack proved to be toothless and relied on some debatable umpiring for at least a couple of the wickets. England are still favourites since history is very much against Australia but compliments to the Australians for actually believing they can win (following on or not). I personally believe (and also hope) that Australia will fall short by a fair margin but I certainly wouldn't put money on it.
#23
ElliottC - you have a way with words.
I can almost believe that the Aussies will not extricate themselves from the situation and pull off a win, so that England will have to wait just a little bit longer for that Lords victory.

Thanks, Chesso. It's always good to hear your opinion too. I remember recently our involvement in another thread (I think it was politics) and it was a pleasure to read such stimulating and thought-provoking comments.

Anyway, I do believe England will have to be patient but not too patient since they must take advantage of the new ball they have. Conditions will not be conducive to a swinging ball and England's attack is too one-dimensional and predictable if the ball isn't swinging. This is a worry for me but I hope James Anderson can prove me wrong and have the mental fortitude to maybe try other options such as different line and lengths. As I said, chasing down 500+ requires a monumental effort and historically, chasing down 300 has proven to be difficult so I believe the 2nd Test should result in an England win.

There was some worry about a possible Australia win. I don't know what the fuss was all about - England had matters under control all along. Of course, I am saying this with a deep sigh of relief!

I didn't expect Australia to win but at the close of play last night there was some concern in my mind due to their superb attitude in actually going for the run chase, let alone even thinking about it. I am sure that had the roles been reversed, the English would have attempted to hang in for the 6 sessions (as has been the case in previous matches) but hats off to Australia for not only putting up a fight but to attempt to belittle the England attack with an agressive attitude.

I havn't seen Flintoff's and Swann's excellent bowling displays yet but I await in eager anticipation for the highlights. I would say that England did have the better of the conditions which makes Australia's never-say-die attitude even more remarkable. Question marks will inevitably be raised on Mitchell Johnson's bowling which must have gifted England plenty of runs so he may well be the one to make way for Brett Lee's return.

Superb all round performance, cant fault the team at all.
