Neser I haven't seen : the two Richardsons and Stanlake have been lively enough in the limited over stuff in the southern summer. Not quite Starc and Cummins though...

Presume Pattinson is still out injured.

The Aussies get through so many pace bowlers. Players hardly get a chance, and they're gone.

Smart move from Morgan to get Moeen on so early ...with immediate results . Big wicket , Finch :clap

Yes, an over from the spinner in the first ten is a gamble that paid off. That's the key Aussie wicket. England just two scalps away from the chief, Tim Paine surprisingly up at six.

Maybe he's better than I thought, but Stoinis looks way too high in the batting.

One wicket away from Tim now.

Startling intervention from Mo.

Promising start for Moeen. Glad to have him in my fantasy team - need a better result than that last debacle :)

This Australian batting lineup looks a bit light on : Paine can bat ; but five ?

Paine getting too cute ...trying to reverse Moeen and just gifting the fourth wicket. Australia in a bit of trouble : need a Maxwell special if they're to offer any sort of competitive score on this good pitch...

I've got seven England players in my FL, but not Mo.

This Aussie team doesn't have the look of 350+ runs in it.

Doesn't mean England won't collapse in pursuit. The weather has been dry recently and the ball my turn and the pitch slow down. So I'm not writing the Aussies off. Batting first should be a big advantage.

Plunkett's a wicket taking machine in ODIs.

I don't think Roy and Hales will ever convince me at this level. Too many technical deficiencies and massively inconsistent.

Apart from obviously Mitch3 has a much better economy.

I wasn't writing off the Aussies earlier...

Poor batting by both teams. Bowlers units have done very well though.
