Stop that pigeon!

Glenn "Pigeon" McGrath    Dick Dastardly & Muttley

Brisbane, First Test, Second Day: England 53/3 (McGrath 2-25) v Australia 602/9 dec. (Ponting 196, Hussey 86, Langer 82, Clarke 56; Flintoff 4-99)

549 runs adrift, a mere 350 runs shy of avoiding the follow-on, McGrath on fire and Warney waiting in the wings ...

On the plus side, Harmy finally got his radar working and managed to get a wicket - Geraint Jones holding on to Shane Warne's miscued pull, thus proving he's learnt how to catch! ;)

With Kevin Pietersen at the crease and Andrew Flintoff next man in there's still hope of avoiding an innings defeat, so long as KP and Flintoff can emulate the hunger and desire of Aussie skipper Ricky Ponting, finally out just four runs short of a double-century.

Failing that, it's time to put in a call to those Wacky Racers and get them to stop that pigeon now!!!

Catch the second day's highlights tonight on BBC Two at 11:00, and listen to live coverage of day three on Radio 4 198LW and the
BBC Sport website from midnight.
