Default Ashes coming home?

Well what a series, barely been a close match so far. Scrapped a draw in the first, won the second, had much the better of 3rd and would have won but for much rain, then were absolutely thrashed in the 4th and now well we're excellently placed to win the 5th take the series 2-1.

A result must be cert now, unless there's weather interuptions, it's not impossible for the Aussies to get 580, especially as they were 80 for 0 overnight. An excellent start to 4th day grabbing two early wickets (90-2), so hoping I'm going to awake to the news that the Ashes are back home

Your wish has come true - the Ozzies must be waking up from a nightmare sporting weekend, first the ABs then the Pomms. What a great reason to have a beer or two
