    Surely Marsh has had his last chance, and I'm surprised Haddin made the team as well. Would have been an ideal opportunity to blood a new keeper.

    Ponting is still the prize wicket to get.

    Do the England team do any catching practice? It's unbelievable how poor we have become in the last year

    Not going to get too upbeat with how today went until a) we get misbah out cheaply and b) we bat properly

    Looks to have been a decent enough day, shame Trott and Cook couldn't press on and get into triple figures..

    That said, it's definitely end to end stuff.

    If we can skittle you lot out with no or a minimal lead then I reckon we will be favourites. Game on!

    No offence but it fudges me off when English born and bred people of Pakistani or Indian heritage support the country of their parents birth.

    So much for British multi-culturalism and integration of minorities.

    Not at all.

    I'm just disappointed that living and being raised in a country your whole life means less to you that a country you might have only visited a handful of times, not that Luton might not have been to Pakistan many times!

    It's his prerogative......just disappointing for me.

    I understand what you mean but i generally think it only happens in cricket.... my guess that it is an institutional/cultural thing.

    Broad and Bell take England into a lead, some good hitting from Broad could put us into a fairly decent position really

    Yes I was.

    Supporting a team is not as easy as that.

    I support England in the football and the rugby and generally in cricket as well but I have been bought up by my father as a Pakistan fan, I have been to watch Pakistan with my dad many times as a child and have continued to do so all my life. It may make sense for me to support England but what has sense got to do with it? My love for Pakistan is just like my love for Spurs, I could not change it regardless of what makes sense. When I watch Pakistan i get nervous when it's clsoe and I get upset when they lose and joyous when they win. It's a feeling, can't change it and Leed Spur - you are defintely intelligent enough to understand my point?

    Does that make sense?

    I can understand you having a place for Pakistan in your heart but for me this country has provided you with so much, and you are English if you are born and bred here, so should show support for England first Pakistan second. But that is just my opinion. For me you have no choice when supporting a nation in sport, it's the nation you are born into and live in.
