    England avoid the follow-on. Hope the weather holds, should be a great days test cricket.

    Aye - I'm a little torn. While I'd love a good days play I do find myself doing my 'rain dance' as well. That is a bit tight on the Aussies I suppose. They have played well and if rain does come it will spoil it a little.

    Also I have £10 on it being a draw :)

    Fuck off Britain.

    Watching you knobheads swan about in 18 degree "scorchers" all summer long, then the second Australia look like winning a fucking Test for the first time in 400 years the bollocking rain comes out.

    It has been high 20s and early 30s in Kent for the past month. It was 26 degrees at night one night!


    Oz shouldn't have had to come off last night though. What's the fucking point of floodlights to then take players off for bad light? Test match cricket suffers from too much nonsense like this.

    They should have declared and then threw the spinners on at Cook & Root.

    Haha. In fairness, Lyons was getting some awkward bounce and turn at times. England wouldn't have enjoyed it, spinners or not.

    The Australians have declared, and play is scheduled to start at 11.30!

    I am glad about this because I think England are in with a chance of a win. Root and Cook need to start in a positive frame of mind. If we lose two or three wickets playing shots, then it will be time to start blocking! :)

    I was quite annoyed yesterday that Cook was so negative in slow over rates, defensive field settings etc. I think if we'd have gotten through the overs quicker we'd either be chasing the same target with more time left (this is if you forget that it rained) or a lesser target if we'd have taken more wickets. Anyway - I hope we jiggle the order a bit and get the blockers like Trott further down and bring Bell and KP higher up. Once we are 3 or 4 down, like Portly says, then it might be time to get back to our 2 runs per over game but i'd like to see us make a play for winning!

    Don't get too excited mate ... they're going to let you down, so best to lower your expectations ...

    I know I know.

    I was more excited that Cook decided to review that to be honest. Straight out of the Shane Watson school of reviews that decision.

    I'll only allow myself to get excited if they get Bell out.

    It will be a shame if the rain comes out to have a say in this today - this looks to be set up for a great day of Test cricket. All results possible! Come on England!

    There should be a dressing room fine for incorrect use of the review system. Dinner on Chefy!

    There are only two results possible: Aus win or a draw. Quite clearly England have no intention of tying to win, and I don't blame them either.

    Seriously what's the point in these cunts if they can't see balls that are careering into the middle of leg fucking stump?
