On the second day of Christmas ...

... my true love (?) sent to me ...

Two Brad Hogg wickets,

and a Matthew Hayden century!

Today was a very good day of test cricket. We completed our innings early, and then let loose a very disciplined and responsible Brett Lee, and an impressive and unlucky Mitchell Johnson.

As usual, Roogirl picked every bowling change, identified an injury to Matthew Hayden, said she'd allow a Tendulkar 50, but no more (he made 62) and declared to all who would listen that it would be Stuart Clark's impeccible line that would trouble the Indians (4/28 comprising 1 x bowled, 2 x lbw & 1 x caught behind).

At stumps we lead by 179 (ish), with Hayden & Jaques making the two-paced wicket look benign, and the Indian fielding making my speed in the field look respectable.
C'mon day 3 ...
