The weather forecast is good mostly sunny with no rain forecast and a top of 17 degrees.
Four down, still a bit to be done, another 2-3 next session and should be game over. Cummins bowling very good, deserves his four wickets.
The urn returns! Victory is ours!
Good team effort by Australia.
You beauty! Would happily turn for Smith or Cummins right now.
Now for 2 and half hours of sleep. Totally worth it though.
Cricket (Ashes) is better than League, we win.
We are lucky at our cricket team are winners.
We have no idea when the Knights will win their next premiership or at least go deep into the playoffs.
won the toss and going to bowl - seems brave, but what the hell, get stuck up them now we have the ashes won, poms have looked pretty brittle.
I would have batted and played Starc. At least without Head, there is one less lefty for Broad to terrorise.
Siddle is bowling poorly, it is very unlike him. Cummins is bowling like the best bowler in the world, which he is.
Siddle is having a shocker!
Nice sunny English day, win the toss and bowl?
What the heck Tim were you thinking. Not good batting last.
Bizarre decision from Paine to bowl first I thought, Hopefully we can get these last 2 wickets quickly and bowl them out for less than 300
England all out for 294. Mitchell Marsh was the best of the bowlers with 5/46, his best bowling figures.
Apart froim Smith, of course, and Marnius, a very dismal batting performance. Warner and Harris put so much pressure on players down the line. England first innings lead of 68, and 0-9 at stumps.
Note to Mr. Hohns. Warner, Harris, Wade, Head are not Test class batsmen. Great decision drop Starc for Siddle. Time to move out the under performers, selectors included.
Only 2 batsman, that is Smith and Labuschagne, deserve their places in the team. The rest just seem to be a bunch of speed humps at present, they are all cheap wickets. The selectors should be on the lookout for 4 new batsman for our next test.
I wish Smith could be given the captaincy for the next test because Paine’s batting has been very disappointing.
Cummins batting has also been disappointing, he has a lot of potential with the bat.
Siddle took zero wickets in England’s first innings, Starc is more likely to take wickets.
It feels like we can win this match if Warner finally has a good innings.
400 with 2 days to bat - not that hard.
It’s possible, batsman like Warner would need to make runs along with Smith and his understudy, Labuschagne.
We desperately need a captain who knows when to use the DRS. The series would be 3-0 if we had one who did.
Too hard for our batting muppets, apart from Smith and Marnius.
