If you happen to’ve been listening to the Remaining Phrase every day podcast by the boys’s collection, we’re doing it for this Test match too with me and Isabelle Westbury, who was good enjoyable yesterday.
I discussed how a lot motion we had yesterday. Additionally notable for England’s missed probabilities. Right here’s the report.
What’s the climate doing? There’s a full layer of cloud over Canberra right this moment however up to now it’s not the kind that is stuffed with rain. The sunshine is sort of shiny. Rain may come later, with doable thunderstorms projected in the direction of the tip of the afternoon. It’s not too scorching proper now however it’s speculated to get hotter and extra sweltering, more and more humid, and which will imply it builds in the direction of some kind of cathartic precipitatory launch.
Good day from Canberra. Day two awaits, after a extremely entertaining day one: 327 runs, seven wickets, and 98 overs bowled. Catches dropped, screamers held, swing and seam, centuries denied, counterattacks launched.
The upshot is that Australia have a really robust place, with rating racked up already. Annabel Sutherland and Jess Jonassen will resume with the bat, each of whom are able to making loads themselves. They’re solely down the order due to the group’s batting depth, however Sutherland has batted at No3 for Australia earlier than and Jonassen practically made a Test hundred on debut in 2015.
So England’s first order of enterprise have to be to get their heads again within the recreation and have the endurance to dismiss some good gamers, as an alternative of pondering that the job is sort of completed by advantage of the wickets column.
