Not terrifically optimistic but ever hopeful.

I think it might be a close run thing and I'm sure we can beat them, but, everything needs to go right and we need a bit of luck.

Worry that playing with a spinner who seems to have zero confidence in his own ability and a No3 who seems to have a fatal flaw in his batting will tip the balance their way.

A good first day, whether we bat or bowl will hopefully set up an exciting contest.

Well earned century from Malan.

One step forward two steps back though as finding a good one we might have lost one of the greats as Cook fails again.

I'll Not mention the chap at the other end yet.

That's brilliant. Much better than I expected when I tuned in in the early hours to hear Joe strangled down the leg side (not literally). And JB has used his head in a far more constructive way. Pity it took us two tests to start playing.

And very well played Malan. I'm not so annoyed now that his parents were unable to spell 'David'.

Really pleased we have had a good day at last after last 2 tests and the soap opera the off field the tour was becoming.
Need 400+ to really put the Aussies under pressure.

Funny what happens when Johnny is allowed out to play and bat with the batsmen rather than the tail

Lovely hundred for Jonny. He had to work hard for it. A pleasure to watch.

Congratulations to YJB, it's a flat pitch but the Aussie quick bowlers have made it a challenge for anybody.

England bowlers proved they can't bat against pace, let's hope their bowling is better.
