What's with Edgbaston and last minute mishaps? Haddin's broken a finger *after* the toss - and thus Australia have lost not only their wicketkeeper, but also a batsman in excellent form.

And they refuse to pick Clark, in spite of Johnson and Siddle leaking runs like nobody's business. Can't they see that they missed an economical bowler in all the 3 tests they lost (2 in the Ashes in 2005, and 1 this time)?

And opening with watson, instead of moving Hussey or North up - all rather weird. Let's see how this test goes.

Watson 62* at the close. Seems to be working so far. Dammit.

Indeed - England's turn to be generous in the first session, I guess.

But with two sessions already lost, more rain predicted over the next few days, and a seemingly placid pitch, a draw would appear to be the likeliest outcome.

Bet you're smiling now :-)

77/7 in one session, and Freddie didn't even take any.

I'm pretty satisfied, yeah. Looking at the weather charts, though, we'll be very lucky to have any play at all before tea tomorrow. Unless something amazing happens this will be a draw, but hopefully for England, in club cricket parlance, a "winning draw".
