Cook, root(wrong decision, inside edge on an lbw appeal) and pietersen gone.

Root was the right decision for me, its hit the pad before the edge. Absolutely pathetic performance from those three on what looks like a perfect batting pitch.

I actually thought at worst they hit the same time. Wedged the ball between bat and pad. Can't see a clear decision on what hit first.

The side view was the one that convinced me, there was a small mark appear on the pad before it hits the inside edge and leaves the big mark on the pad. I genuinely think it was the right decision.

We are in a poor position now needing Trott and Bell to hang around for a very long time.

Not a great start, the two openers haven't made the best of starts in this series, Trott and Bell looking good though and have put us in a better position. Credit to Clarke put Harris into the team today and he picks up two wickets. Also putting Shane Watson on after four overs and getting the wicket of Cook was a masterstroke.

Bairstow bowled off Siddle, but called back after it was found that Siddle's front foot was over the the crease, and thus a no-ball.

Johnny Bairstow has a habit of getting out to the straight ball thankfully this time it was a no ball this will be something that Gooch and Flower will work on more. I really hope he can get a fifty plus score and get some form and confidence going in his game. Bell looks very good at the crease too. This game is very much in the balance so far, really hope Bell can add another century. Pattison has looked a little out of sorts so far today.

Bairstow has his 50. Here's hoping Bell can make his 100 by the end of the session

Bell out for 109. Caught behind of smith. Excellent knock. Looking in a strong position now after a poor start. Currently 274-5 after being 28-3.

283-7 Smith has come on and has changed the outlook of the game, I feel though that England will have one more partnership in them, should have enough to get past 300 which on any wicket with our bowlers will give them a chance to get out to a similar score to ours. Ian Bell batted extremely well a player who is now really finding form. Johnny Bairstow will be really angry with the shot he played to get out as it was a full toss and should have been put away.

Not a bad score at all considering the morning of the first day.

Good to get a competitive score down because it didn't look likely at all yesterday when three of the top four failed to make a contribution.

This is a good deck for batting so we'll need Anderson and Broad to make some early break through with the new ball.

It's a crying shame for Australia that Ryan Harris is rather injury prone.

Very pleased to see that Broad is finding some form with the bat, Swann played well too. Still would have wanted us to get at least 400 though.  Ryan Harris has been excellent he was there best seamer by a country mile. I fancy to have a bit of a lead hear. Those runs will give us momentum interesting to see how the Aussies will bat Watson will want to score quickly

I always enjoy Watson bat especially those drives that he plays but far too often he gets to thirty and then gets out. He has 21 scores of fifty plus only 2 of those are hundreds. Big wicket for England just before lunch and even better that they wasted one of there reviews. I was pleased it was Tim Bresnan that go the wicket.

Shane Watson is great to watch but I don't think he's quite test standard. That's not because he lacks the ability, far from it. He just lacks the concentration. He'll play beautifully till he gets to about 30 or 40 then he gets himself out. Oh well, it's alright against England. I think Clarke might score a few on this wicket though, but it seems Jimmy has his number. We'll see.

93-6 now.

They're in disarray. I thought we managed to get out to some silly shots but Australia are giving us a master class in getting out.  :D

they are not playing well at the moment! i was suprised that many people said about the 1st test that they showed a lot of heart. personally i think the 1st test was theirs for the taking and they bottled it.

Agreed. Lord's is quite a strong hold as well for Australian cricket. It's nothing like that at the moment. They are well and truly falling apart - Michael Clarke might have to force himself up the order at this rate in future innings. England shall bat again later tonight and really pile the runs on leaving Australia with around two days or more to save the test match.

As I type, England have taken another wicket. A run out. Hilarious.

if a follow on is possible, I wouldn't take bat them out of the game. If England have a good start the bowlers will lose, the lead will increase and the pressure on that very unstable batting line up will increase even further.

Whats also been good today now wicket for jimmy Anderson shows how good of a bowling attack we have, Swann, Bresnan and Broad have all bowled well. Why didn't Rogers review that, Watson and Hughes reviewed were both wasted. Kawaja plays a shocking shot to get out. Haddin just 2 from 34.
