Re: The Ashes 2013

Eng 3/114 (Root 63, Bresnan 32) lead Australia by 347 runs at Lunch on Day 3.

Absolutely nothing in that session for Australia. Our bowlers look very sore and sorry - no surprise when they get a three hour between innings! Cook will keep us out there till tea tomorrow if he can, and crush our bowlers into the dust. We are heading towards a heavy defeat now, paying the price for yesterday's profligate batting. Let's hope it stings, and this is hopefully some sort of line in the sand moment.

I agree with you OZ, cricket is small potatoes in the scheme of things, but this England team aren't invincible, and it's disappointing we are going to give up the series after 7 days of cricket, when Cook, Pietersen, Trott and Prior haven't even broken a sweat yet.
