Starts in just over an hour. Getting dull now this one-sided contest.....
They're already demoralized. See no purpose. No point risking a draw more for no real reason.They should play out one session atleast, demoralize the English further and then declare.

If England do well against Australia and get some wickets in the first session, England will win back a little momentum. If Australia bat well, it'll show England that the pitch is good for batting.
Much better to put them in first, start of the day. They won't know what the pitch will be like at the start of the day. Thus more uncertainty.
