They had a computer graphic that showed where the ball was heading, and quite a few of them (according to the computer) would have rattled the stumps.
Willis and co immediately jumped all over the computer graphics. LOL
I think they are getting away with a lot of padding-up and offering no shot.

I thought that an earlier declaration
would've been far better for England.
They didn't need that score!
Had they put OZ onto the firing squad 45 mns earlier
with a sniff of a win... the equation's totally different.
One must take risks TO WIN the big ones.
In the end, it is poetic justice...
England was within a boundary of losing the 2nd test,
this would've been THE ASHES to OZ...
as they couldn't have won three in a row.
Now everything's back to square one
althought OZ only need to win one out of the two...
A big ask for England.

Only convicts have the killer instinct or the willingness to die saving OZ from defeat.
Morally, the convicts won.
Whoever wins or loses, the game wins and so do heroes like Flintoff, Pietersen, Warne, and Gilly.
The cricketing world worships them for their exploits; as to their foibles, who amongst us is perfect enough to cast the first stone?

Nothing sends a quarter of the human population into a frenzy more than an England vs Australia match or a Pakistan vs India match.
The subcontinent is divided into two.
Half feel sorry for Freddie Flintoff and England.
Half aspire to be Brett Lee and Glenn McGrath holding out against the wallopers.
I want England to win because an Oz win has become so routine.
