It'll be great to see the Aussies totally humiliated on a ground where they've not lost for 40 or so years if I recall - and Glenn McGrath saying just after the first test. Just watch us bounce back, we love Lords.

Brilliant, let's totally and utterly humiliate them.

I think we should bat until tea, let's get the pitch really broken up, have a lead of over 700 and wipe the floor with them and very possibly their biggest test defeat ever.

Mmmmm
I would have put them in last night for 45 mins , they look like a lost team at the moment . They've defiantly got some major personal problems in their dressing room as they look lost .

I'd also put them to the sword and humiliate them . They're not taking it too well down under.

The comments are a tad bitter !!!

Could be a great Sunday for us Brits.

A Joe Root double and England win, Chris Froome TDF winner and then a Lee Westwood Open title.

bet the odds aren't great on that triple.

So, England declare when Root was out for 180 and now Australia have a run chase of 583 to win, best part of two days to play.

My money's on the Aussies....

3.3 / over is the run rate required.

I don't think they'll get close.

3.3/over - they can do that....




How many players do they have?

And as my betting predictions are always wrong, I'm still backing the baggy greens!

it's 173 overs they need to survive.

Surely even we can't **** this up?

You'd hope not wouldn't you

However this is England we're talking about...


Having said that, I am getting worried, Aussies are ahead of the run rate and haven't lost a wicket.

WICKET - Watson lbw Anderson 20 (Aus 24-1)
It just had to be. Shane Watson, the man whose pads are permanently in front of the stumps, is trapped by that lbw hunter James Anderson. Nipping back in, Watson's defensive shot is defeated. It looks plumb and, after an eternity, Marais Erasmus raises the finger. The biggest surprise? Watson doesn't review.

Fall of wicket: 24-1 (Watson 20)

How many times has that wanker been caught out lbw . Are his feet made of concrete , he's got the mobility of a phone box .

From the BBC Sport website:

31.16% of Shane Watson's Test dismissals have been lbw - more than any other batsman in Test history (minimum 70 dismissals). Ten out of his 18 Ashes dismissals have been lbw (55.55%).
