Rain is forecast all day. If the weather holds true, England retain the Ashes.
 
Nothing official. But surely they have declared.

England will not try and chase 330 down on the last day. We are a defensive team (hell we are a defensive country). We would not even try and chase 300 down.

Just dig in and grind it out.
 
hope aussies win for the sake of keeping the series alive..
 
Poms still have the edge , they bat really deep.

Aussies need a dream spell from some one her.
 
"I have to say after watching Cook over the last few months I think his use of the review system, when batting, shows as much selfishness and poor judgement as Watson. He is clearly another who simply does not believe he can be out LBW." He's got one or two wrong, Dan, that much is true

England are the most boring team in the world..

Hmm, so are you some sort of hobbit-troll hybrid?

If you stay up until the sunrise, do you turn to stone?

Satellite pix suggest that the rainheads have swung a point of two north of easterly and are missing Manchester.

Name one team that's worse? If it weren't for KP no one would watch the 'English' bat and I'm using the word 'English' loosely here.
 
I just feel its going to be Australia's day and will win.

The planets in the universe are all in alignment. Even the weather forecasts were wrong.
 
Bloody leg side strangles. Send Cook and Trott back to grade cricket. :dopey:
 
Chasing leg side deliveries when you are playing for a draw :D
 
First time I've heard an english commie call something awesome about England's batting, it's a dead give away that the saffa is batting :yk
 
Can't remember the last time I saw Clarke drop a catch :O
 
I have a feeling if we could have 50 more overs of play from here , Aus will win .
 
Was out imo pretty close to bat and there was a noise - fair enough
 
Ooooooooooh! Pietersen gets a Khawaja, and Australia get a huge huge wicket!
 
However, Siddle looking like a demon, he's created an opportunity already
 
Great decision by the worlds best umpire last year
