Straussed--The violin(bat)stroked the ball to the outfield--The Cook meanwhile made a meal of our bowlers


Within half an hour of the second session of the first teethe pair had reached 150, which made it the best opening partnership in Australia by a visiting team for 20 years.
Australia's worst fears and England's highest hopes have been confirmed. On the evidence presented yesterday, Ricky Ponting's team is not going to reclaim the Ashes.
It's not the captain's fault. He juggled his resources and placed his fieldsmen to the best of his ability. It's just that the bowling lacks penetration, and the fielding is just serviceable.
England's rally at the Gabba was as telling as Australia's inability to press home their advantage. Over the years, this ground has taken no prisoners.
All we can do now is avoid baring our bums and pray we don't collapse. We have to last it out for a draw.
HAS THE HORSE BOLTED FOR THE FIRST TEST IN AUSTRALIA
CAN WE SAVE IT?
 WITH A DETERMINED EFFORT, YES!
