The 5th highest total an England team has to chase, I'll have you know!
And Monty had figures of 6-37 off 17, beating his previous best by a country mile. (they were 6-126 or something I think)

But I would think people would see him as a bit of a nerd if you get what I mean!

He bowled really well on a turning pitch. I hope england can do it but i think Vettori will be to much of a handful.

Yeah, there isn't any need for us to rush we've got 2 and a bit days to get the runs, however rain is forecast for Tuesday!

Going well at the moment Vaughn and strauss going well. 30's in a row now for strauss silencing his crictics for a while i think. Could do with turning this 1 to a 100 though. Vaughn looks well set and he's played Vettori really well.

England have been much more positive with the bat this morning which is good to see. Vaughan just recently got out for 48 and Strauss is looking solid at the crease. Pietersen should also be looking for runs.

should win this today if we carry on the way we are going. Strauss needs to carry on what he's doing and kp needs to forget about technique and play naturally, don't think about it too much should be his attitude.

273-4 England looking good for the win however some low points particularly the running out of KP, he looked in very good touch. Strauss was very impressive and deserved his ton. 24 to win!
