    Pat Cummins has some sort of bug and is struggling big time

    Ohh Smithy that dropped catch, whilst difficult for most but not you, could bite our bums big time!

    We are on the back foot now, We are being punished for collapsing in pretty good conditions

    I know the bounce was inconsistent at times and there was a hint of reverse on occasion but 7/83 isn't good enough

    Well done to the poms and in particular Alastair Cook who has bounced back from his poor form

    Now that there's no pressure of winning the series, they are performing okay. Where was all these when the series was alive?

    Starc is out injured and Cummins battled illness all day. Marsh and Bird are well behind Starc, Hazelwood and Cummins IMHO.

    Team is severely weakened with Starc out for Bird in, he is ok but not the danger Starc is, much better bowler and a fairly good bat, tail looks long without him especially with Cummings problems, will be long day today, expect England to bat all day and have good lead.

    If we can get one of these 2 out before England hit the lead then it could spell trouble for England

    Their lower order has not performed this tour

    1st Test

    1st Innings - Lost their last 5 wickets for 53
    2nd Innings - Lost their last 5 wickets for 126

    2nd Test

    1st Innings - Lost their last 5 wickets for 95
    2nd Innings - Lost their last 5 wickets for 56

    3rd Test

    1st Innings - Lost their last 5 wickets for 31
    2nd Innings - Lost their last 5 wickets for 46

    Batting last will be very difficult, Looking at the highest successful run chases anything between 200-250 will be very hard for England to get

    Pay particular attention to the dates below, Alot of the top run chases haven't been in the last 50 years

    Alas Marsh and Bird are not in the same class as Starc and Cummins still looks a little tender backed up by number of overs bowled. Smithy's dropped catch is haunting us (and him no doubt).

    get them out soon and it's a very close test match.
    They probably need 100 first innings lead to make up for having to bat last.

    I reckon the game is gone, We would have score 400+ and I just don't see it happening

    Well done to Cook, He has been superb

    Only England can win, Aust has to take a wicket immediately, score 300-400 to have a chance and then bowl England out for 200 or less, more likely 150. Can happen but unlikely. England win or draw no other likely result.

    Australia should forget it's a test match and go for a win. They have already won the series and it's an opportunity to try and win an unwinnable match. Make quick runs and make them chase 270 in 75 overs.

    Bancroft's wicket in this innings was the 4th time an Aussie batsman has dragged it on to their own stumps :brickwall:

    Key partnership here, If Warner and Smith fall in the next session it could become an avalanche of wickets especially if it's reversing

    Tends to show they are playing early and the wicket is not as fast as usual.

    Wonder if Hohns will replace Bancroft and Khawaja? For mine Matt Renshaw and Peter Handscomb both got the rough end of the pineapple.
