    176/4 just after lunch, Strauss playing well.

    England had the start, Australia struck back, Flintoff at the crease on 16...

    Bell failed again. :rolleyes:

    Treskothic played well for his 46.

    This is going to be a very tense weekend. :eek:

    Listening the BBC Radio 4 Longwave via RealPlayer on my PowerBook.

    A great recovery by Straus and Flintoff. Made it to tea with only 4 down. Now they need to be carefull not to loose any quick wickets right after the break...

    Yep, hopefully these two can build a good session. Till the end of today would be perfect. Think we may be looking at a mid-high 300s innings?

    The Aussies don't have an answer at the moment. Strauss hit McGrath's efforts for fun!

    274/4 at 60 OVS

    Edit: Had to happen.... Freddie goes from Warne for 72....274/5

    Flintoff's gone.... 278/5

    Warnes got 4, Strauss still working hard.

    Collingwood at the crease.

    Collingwood over Anderson - A good choice guys? I think so. Anderson was has too little to offer the attack if his bowling doesn't go well. An all rounder was a good choice and Collingwood has already beaten the Aussies before, this summer.

    Edit: LOL, Collingwood out for 7. I think I may stop saying things like this ^^^^^^.....

    Or not! It's all falling apart again. England will be luck to get to 350 from here!

    Not a bad thing, we might see a 5-day Test... :eek:

    I thought Collingwood was very poorly used there, the ball was about three inches outside the line.

    Bugger, there goes Struass, 350 might be a tall ask now....

    297/7, Strauss out for 129.

    Probably best to keep quiet, especially with Jones missing from the attack, I reckon 350 is about right, Aussies reply for around 420, England struggle for a while but Bell comes good and scores 150, England set a chase of about 300, Aussies all out for 185...

    England win the Ashes.

    Simple really.

    No point in watching any more of it... :eek:

    Well, we made it to close without losing the whole lot. Tomorrow should be interesting and now the stumps have come up I can finally go home!

    Glad Strauss made a good century today, it's the first time he's actually played well in these tests. Anyway, no college tomorrow, so I've got my whole day sussed.

    So many words that strung together make no sense to an American. :)

    Today was a bit like the whole bloody series, first England strike out the Australia come back and so it goes.

    My concern is that, up to now, the Australian bowling has been suspect, their batting so-so, but there are signs of a batting resurgence and England have one strike bowler missing with no benefit from the extra batsman....

    This could go right down to the wire.

    Again. :eek:
