    I think he was talking in the context of breaking that partnership earlier which Archer should have, silly boy he was

    Archer is a limp dingdonghead at times.

    Fair point. But Hussein kept repeating "one of these two (Maxwell/Carey) HAS to be there at the end." He never once qualified it.

    Commentators are always doing that sort of thing and you just know the outcome is likely to be the opposite of what they're saying.

    I think Nasser Hussein is great to listen to, one of the best commentators. The others take the tinkle out of him for being anal, but he watches the game still with his captain head on. He's always so aware of over rates, bowler rotations, field placings, previous history between batsman and bowler and various nuances of the match and flags them to the viewers several overs before changes then get made. Really knowledgable guy.

    Two black marks though:
    1. He supported Leeds for years, but committed the unforgivable sin of changing teams.
    2. He changed to Woolwich.

    Agree overall about Nasser. Despite my niggle he's definitely one of the best.

    Yea definitely, 1 wicket and it was cat among the pigeons time, as it proved to be honest. It’s just the wicket(s) came too late with them only needing about 14 in 12 balls and the pressure wasn’t what it would have been had it come at 60 off 40 balls or something.

    In summary, the wicket just came too late!

    He was an absolute run machine. One of the few Australian cricketers I've ever liked or respected. Warne and Gilchrist being the other two.

    Slow going at Lords.

    I think Essex are trying to secure the first innings lead based on the draw going to first innings score to determine winner
