Why didn't he start?

Monty Panesar became the first English spinner to take a five-wicket haul in Perth as England grabbed the initiative in the third Ashes Test.

Enough said. Should have played from the start. Lets hope tomorrow morning I can follow up this entry with a big fat smiley face.

EDIT(friday morning):

THIRD TEST, PERTH, DAY TWO: Australia v England

Australia were turning the screw as they attempted to regain the Ashes after racing to a 100-run lead on day two of the Perth Test.

England were dismissed for 215, a deficit of 29 on Australia's first innings, and the hosts reached 71-1 with an hour's play left.

Matthew Hoggard made an immediate impact bowling Justin Langer for a first-ball duck.

But Matthew Hayden and Ricky Ponting were taking the fight to England.

Oh bollocks.
