1st test,Australia Vs England,Brisbane,Day4
The England’s answer to Aussie domination on day3 was very well given by the openers of England.The Gabba pitch seems very good for batting and Strauss & Cook are making merry in the middle . Cook, the less dominant of the two partners scoring his 2nd fifty of the match with a score of 51 @ Lunch and strauss powering himself with a 71 @ lunch .England went for Lunch with the score @ 131/0 reducing the lead to 91.The Aussie bowlers could not find length or rhythm today . Hilfenhaus and siddle who were good yesterday in the brief last session of play did very less today to trouble the England batsmen.The only chance of the day was given by strauss which was miserably dropped by Johnson.Further,Johnson considered the spearhead of the Ausies has nothing in the wickets column yet,part timer north is used more.seems like, Ponting wants to use the rough outside the off stump for the left handers.At this juncture, match seems to taking it’s way towards a Draw.
Let’s hope”Strauss scores his century and make the match interesting”
Aussies look down on the field
