2-1 …… early breakthrough after an earlier nick down leg side to Bairstow not given.

Byebye to Warner as the crowd wave sandpaper as he departs! Great start for England.

Poor review for a delivery going clearly over the stumps.

Good to see Warner go early.

If I hadn't seen such riches, I could live with being poor

Sandpaper out again as Bancroft’s dismissal heralds the appearance of Smith.

Smith walks out to bat to a chorus of "Cry in a minute, you're gonna cry in a minute"

Aussies 112-7 now but Smith still there. Hopefully will run out of partners. Let's hope Jimmey's injury not too bad

Umpires have been poor so far today, not that I'm complaining!

Wish I'd chosen a different username...

It certainly is, although the typical English pessimism in me fears the fact we still have to face an Australian attack on this wicket.

What a great innings by Smith. I felt England went too defensive to him too early. The loss of Anderson was really telling. It's much more difficult bowling third and fourth spells with an old ball.

There should be questions asked as to what sort of rigorous fitness test Anderson was put through.

Like the Buckets, was so promising but will prevail in the end

Incredible innings even though Anderson was injured for most of the day. Fair play to the Aussie tail too. Over to us with the Bat tomorrow and let’s hope for a sunny day otherwise not sure we will chase that total down

Decent start for England. Proper test match cricket, see off the new ball, then cash in when the ball gets softer and the seamers are in their third and fourth spells.

Nice of the umpires to give Aus a new cherry after 60 overs.

Poll: DF in or out

Game changer

The old ball England had yesterday did nothing from 50 overs, Aussies whinge about theirs and get a replacement that's hooping around

So much for dead older ball! The Aussies get the ball changed and for all our complaining yesterday we didn't.

Cheating cons got a couple of wickets out of it, getting a swinging ball issued. Has to be said how poor the umpiring has been so far, which is very unusual at this level. But, England, Rory Burns in particular, played some great test cricket today in spite of these shenanigans . Play through tomorrow in the same way, build a substantial lead, and maybe...

Happy with that performance today with the way most of the top 4 have batted recently. Pity Buttler had a low score and I was a bit surprised he went in before Stokes. We need to make the most of this and have a lead of at least 100 as Lyon will be dangerous in the 4th innings

Good win for Lancs too

Unfortunately England have 5 umpires on the elite panel and the Aussies two so we are left with the rest so it will be Dar, Darmasena, Wilson, Gaffney and Erasmus to umpire the series. Not really an inspired list!

I thought Buttler got a good one, so was a bit unfortunate. Really need to get a decent lead. Anderson was supposedly seen doing some jogging/running. If we could bat all day tomorrow even 10 overs from him could be vital. Cummins and Patterson were knackered when they took the new ball. Having only 4 bowlers really takes it toll.
