The last day will suit Warne.

If Australia gets a semi decent lead by batting most of tomorrow, I can't see England holding out Warne on the last day. He is in unbelievable form, even for him.

The weather is definitely a big factor...

so is TIME, and the two are somehow linked

that's why I would give England the sniff of victory

against the prospect of tamed draw.

Warne is the right man for big accasions

and Ponting should listen to him... full-stop.

Providing the Australian side can stay there long enough, they should be level by lunch. A hundred ahead by tea. Two hundred by stumps.

Then England have to make 200 on the last day.

That is a best case scenario for Australia. If it rains, it will be really hard. But what can you do? Go for the slog and make a quick fire 150..... and give the Poms 50 runs to win?!

GOOD.

It doesn't matter how many Australia finish up in front.

50,100 or 150?

In the end Australia MUST bowl England out

and if needed bat to win the series.

The good thing about batting last is....

they don't have to appeal against the light.

Sexy. Why not on the infinately superior and magnificent Cricket World Cup Thread? ;)

Hey, can you access the 2 seemingly fairly new smilies? Or is this 'showing 28 of 31' just bollocks? :(

McGrath was out, just 100 short of his 100.

Warne gets a wicket in his first over. The English batsmen will be shitting themselves facing him.

Bugger! They have taken the light! :(

Oh well, tomorrow is another day. :)

Just you wait Henry Higgins, just you wait.:devil:

How wonderful it would be if we could change captains midway through a match, make Warne captain of the cons, and ask Ponting to field at deep fine leg?:wonder:

Back to Freddie Flintoff:

"Both aspects of England's game are personified in Andrew Flintoff, for whom no superlative is any longer sufficient. He has been truly immense all summer. It is hard to believe how truly immense immense can truly be."

Freddie's Ashes?

good, honest, salt-of-the-earth Freddie :kowt: :kowt: :kowt: :kowt: :kowt:

Warne C and B Flintoff!

Lee is checking out Pieterson's ribs. Collingwood is clueless.

I cannot believe Lee is wicketless.

What a match!

If we lose it,at least we go down all guns blazing. :P

Piehunt,

in that case you can thank a wanker for getting England cricket where it is today: Rod Marsh overhauled your cricket training methods with the academy. ;)

You guys were rolling along the bottom of the ladder for years until he turned up.

So thank us "wankers". :P

P.S. Piehunt, are you from the north? ;)

My inlaws are northerners. Oldham.

My father in law came over here in '67. He has not lost his accent one little bit. In fact Iam sure he puts it on a bit! Some relations came down to visit last year and I am sure they did not have as broad an accent as Ted. LOL

Ted is straight out of the Monty Python's "Four Yorkshire Men" :P

I played it for him. He loved it.
