Still, time to pray to the Rain Gods for the next 10 days.

Glenn McGrath faces a fitness battle to be ready for Australia's must-win fifth Ashes Test at The Oval next month. Ricky Ponting said there was doubt over McGrath's fitness after he missed the Trent Bridge loss with an elbow injury.
One spunky Aussie batsman less to get out...
Think you have your hands around that URN?
If OZ draws at the Oval they still return the Ashes.
If they lose I am sure they will go down guns blazing.
Time OZ made Gilly captain. Ricky Ponting is not actually the best motivation for Australia.

I think Ponting is taking all this stress. The way Warne carries on on the field, I wonder what he is like in the dressing rooms. Marriage breakups make men go cuckoo.
How many times have you seem Warne blathering away on the field in Ponting's ear and Ponting just silently taking it?
Maybe Ponting's spray at Fletcher was just what the doctor ordered!
Gilchrist would not make a good captain. Warne is by far the best. By a mile. But his personal life is in tatters.

You won the last toss. And that basically decided the game. I have never seen a more docile first day pitch. And even then England won in a nail biter!
Same again for the previous test! And all you got was a draw.
The previous test before that McGrath was out injured that morning. Ponting amazingly put England in. And still! you only won by two runs!
A little luck our way, and we might still take the ashes back home. Tait wasn't too bad a find. And Lee is in amazing form. And its not like our top end batsmen aren't due. LOL
Ponting, Clarke, Katich, Langer, Lee, Warne, are all starting to get runs.
Australia have been world beaters for 12 years. They know how to win. And their form isn't hopeless by a long way.
Lee could totally decimate a team the way he is flying at the moment. If he got 7/35 I wouldn't be surprised. Did you see the look on Flintoff when Lee got him second innings? That said a lot.
