Really enjoying Williamson just grinding them into the dirt. Almost as much as the archival footage of Ian Healy being hit in the box by the Windies :)

Interesting thing is how the channel nine commentators have gone from saying that Aus will win it by the morning on Day 4 yesterday to how flat the pitches are and something needs to change today. Typical channel nine commentators.

Yep. It's hilarious, especially when Taylor hit a "thick edge". That screamed off just like a late cut. For his century.

i think they eating there words now. i think another 100 the test should be saved at least.

if we survive this new ball we might get a lead and put aus under pressure as it will start to break up day 4.

Enjoying seeing Williams and Taylor and bat, and now the contest with the new ball.
Bit optimistic talking about a lead at this stage in my view, we've only just avoided the follow on.

Taylor 150, after williamsons big score.

Great to see Taylor with the head switched on.

And the sting is out of the new ball now. They have survived a few testing overs so hopefully scoring should be easy now.

That was a great session. The stats really don't do it justice. There were heaps of runs and some incredibly quick bowling from Starc. Great cricket.

yep about 4 and a bit runs per over.

then they got the new ball and 160kph, couldnt get mcc or taylor.

now in a GREAYT position.

still got Watling to support one, craig, henry. could be a 650 score if they keep it going.

We got the Kangaroo rooters on the ropes. Few more wickets and we should win this one, or they might declare at lunch with only 300 to chase, being a semi easy one day score to get.

Aussie commentating is terrible they are so arrogant and that nasel accent makes for terrible commentary. Cant wait for them to tour NZ.

Going to see fire works if the wannabes can reach 300 (but doubt it), although we might bowl them out by mid second session for less than that and have a really easy chase on.
