3 wickets now, 3 poor uses of review.  First was reviewed when it shouldn't have been, second was not reviewed when it should have, third was reviewed but not allowed despite the batsman thinking he didn't hit the thing.

 

Ah well, the umpires can have a shocker for the rest of the innings and nowt the Aussies can do about it.

Oh well, never mind, what a pity ...

Australia have Braddin in now and Agar. Jelly like batting has led them to be 91-6.

Unbelievable scenes, sensational.

I can confirm 30+ less sales for Scotland vs Italy at Workington, after this afternoons test purchase for the Tonga match, £7.50 is extremely reasonable, however a £2.50 'delivery' fee for a walk in purchase is beyond taking the mickey, good luck with that, it's cheaper on the telly.

England are dragging this out for the benefit of the broadcasters and the Lords ticket office.

This is how England nearly always do it.  They may even come out for half an hour in the morning.  Winds the opposition up something chronic.

I do hope so. There's 2 days left. Even if they bat til lunch tomorrow, there's more than enough time. They'll go with 600 needed.

Think they'll let the lad go for his 200 and then declare

Aye. The important thing is for England to twist the knife. Then beat the almost lifeless aussie body with a sledgehammer. Then set it on fire.

The cricket 3rd umpires make you realise how good the ones in Super League really are...  A bit of a shocker for the Agar wicket.


Arguing with the forum trolls is like playing chess with a pigeon.  No matter how good you are, the bird will **** on the board and strut around like it won anyway

Second biggest win by runs for England over Australia.

 

England win the first two of a series for the first time since the 70s, go 2-0 up for the first time since the 80s, win four on the trot (over 2 series) for the first time since the ... I think they said 30s.

 

And yet were 30-3 twice.

 

Odd series but Australia need to develop a backbone earlier in their innings to make it a close one from this point.

I fear for this series now. We have weaknesses that the aussies are just too poor to exploit. Could be very one-sided.

Australia's top wickets can't keep falling so cheaply.

You'd hope not. The thought did occur to me that only Clarke out of their top 7 is genuine quality. Remarkable fall from grace for a country that was producing an embarrassment of riches a short while ago.

Do you remember how much the Aussies enjoyed beating us 5-0 in 2006(?) and how much their media lapped it all up? England should go for the throat and absolutely demoralise the Australians in this test series, both the players and media alike.

I have no problem with England handing out a jolly good thrashing to the Aussies.

 

Just doesn't make for great cricket watching, that's all.

After the 16 years of Aussie gloating, its nice to be in this position of 3 Yorkshire lads and 8 others handing out the beatings

The first test was close.

 

In the second, we had a few good players and they had none.

 

Things can still turn around.
