Why are you all so obssed with this silly game called cricket.

Where supposed men dress in white and rub their balls so hard you think they would do some harm.
They stand around in the field all day doing nothing, unless you are the bowler.
They sit in the pavilion all day if they are not batting.

Having said all that - come on ENGLAND
Stuff it up them big headed Aussies.
Get it over quickly so I can take my family out and save a great big scene.
Freedie is world class and I bet the Aussies hate that.

10 minutes to go. Can't wait. LOL

You may have a point there John, I would agree that he is the most suspect. Now I know a keeper I really would like but I don't think you would part with him...

Lose Flintoff - you have (and are) to be joking. Funny thing with him though is when I first saw him, I think I would have lost him... I thought he was just going to be what you sometimes see over here branded as the next Botham but wasn't going to come to much.

I don't think Oz can win this match now, but I didn't think the Springboks could beat the All Blacks either.

Whatever happens, the series is alive. Jon, if you're picking a team for next test I'd lose G. Jones if I were you.
Oh yeah, and Flintoff too. Lose Flintoff eh?

Looks like it did miss when MC went down...

--------

I think I'd leave the team as it is. The minimum they will have achieved is to give the aussies a big scare and as you note they all seem to be pulling together as a team in the field. Perhaps with a bit more confidence the bating will improve.

I think this one has offered us the best chance with McGrath out of action and possibly Ponting's strange (to me) decision on winning the toss but I do think we should be able to make a game of all these tests.

What a great, well balanced test this has been and it could still go either way. Just shows what a difference having McGrath in the team makes.

Perhaps in order to keep the series interesting England should be allowed at the start of each match to pick a member of the Australian squad who would be ineligible to play.

That brave prediction has been noted.

Whatever the outcome tomorrow - it is clear that the rest of the series will be tightly contested. And if only England can get someone other than Flintoff, Pietersen and to a lesser extent Trescothick and Strauss - to stay at the crease and get some runs - England should even win.

Simon Jones at least stayed around long enough with Flintoff and it was only this parnership that gave Australia any sort of target to chase. It would only be honest to say that the rest have not really justified their selection as batsmen. With just a few more second innings runs - this game would have been over.

Despite this - there does seem to be a fighting team spirit and everyone seems to know what to do in the field - so perhaps the team should be left as it is? Not that there appears to be too many altenatives....

There will be some Sunday play after all.....

It looks as if tomorrow Warne is going to have to win the game with his batting.

Any predictions for the outcome? I think my money must now be on a tie. I suspect the bookies would now be making England favourites.

It is probably more likely that they will get two wickets than Australia get their hundred or so runs - but who can tell with this contest?

Bring it on........

No test side has scored more than 280 to win on this ground. It is interesting that the bookies currently have Autralia as favourites to win.

They are not often wrong. We will see if they are this time.

Well 181 and they didn't make the tea interval.

It is just possible for England to still win - but with a batting performance like that one (a few notable exceptions)- would they deserve it?

Warne's final tally was 7 - I think. A bowler that is definitly over-the-hill......

At least someone brave enough to make a prediction.

England will struggle to make about 150 and fail to bowl Australia out.

It looks as if Flintoff (the best England bowler) will not be able to bowl and as there will be no time pressure - the Australians will be able to make the required runs very easily.

But I hope that I am proved completely wrong........

Gentlemen

You are watching history with Warne. I have been watching Tests since the early 1950s and have never seen a bowler as good. I have seen Tyson, Statham, Roberts , Lillee, Thomson, Griffith, Garner, Snow, Lock, Benaud, Lindwall, Miller, Hall and countless others who were superb but this bloke is amazing. A good test this one

Enjoy

Agreed Alan, Warne is an outstanding bowler. I remember seeing him when he first played a test over here and was amazed and I was still amazed watching Strauss fall today. Mind you, having seen him spin the ball so often, I was probably even more amazed at his bouncer at Pieterson in the first test.

Although I am hoping England win this one and two more,I cannot but marvel at Shane Warne`s bowling.His two dismisals of Strauss were breath taking,but overall his bowling is a pleasure to watch.He will be sadly missed when he quits test cricket and it is rumoured that this is his last tour,but what a craftsman.
This Ashes clash is so far living up to and surpassing all expectations.Out lads will fight to the finish win or lose.
What a combination of Peterson and Flintoff, at last they both clicked together and with a bit of experience they will be feared by teams Worldwide.I must applaud the selectors for taking a chance on Peterson they would have come in for a lot of stick if he had let them down.
Can we get another 250?
We shall know tommorow.

Warne's batting was 'iffy' but he is after-all - in the team for his bowling. Which on the evidence of the delivery that got Strauss's wicket - is worrying as the pitch is only going to favour him more.

The only hope is if the match position does not allow Ponting to set the sort of close attacking fields that helped make Warne's bowling so effective at Lords.

What do the aussie's think of Warne's batting today? I'd thought he might at least have tried to stick around a while and I know he can bat well but he seemed to me to be almost intent on commiting suicide.

I will certainly make the advanced buying of tickets for test matches on Sunday - a bit unadvisable........

I looked first thing if the wickets would be falling quickly - but only three have fallen by lunch. The cricket has not been quite as exciting or the scoring not so fast as yesterday but it has been just as interesting.

The England captain has had a good day as a fielder - including a fine direct-hit and run-out.
