Just allow 4 beamers per over, give them a sporting chance

Wade showing England how to field there.

He had a bit of luck too though.

Every team has bad spells with fielding, ask David Warner earlier in the series 😛

dont know why Warner looks so smug,he's done fook-all this Series.
23:22, Thu 5 Sep
He might only average 120 then instead of 147 😂

Root has to emulate smith tomorrow, it’s as simple as that!
If we aren’t still batting in first innings by close of play tomorrow, then Ben stokes heroics will have been in vain!

Bye, Ashes.

We have never even been close this series to having a finger on the urn.

Rubbish. If not for rain in the second test we’d be 2-1 up.
Sorry, you are quite right, I got carried away in the crapness of yesterday.
As you say if not for the rain at Lords we would be sitting a little prettier, but it does seem that the Aussies/Steve Smith have retained the Ashes, at least.
It's easier to beg for forgiveness, than ask for permission.

Smith is the difference between the teams. He's covered most, if not all, of the cracks in their batting.

Think the most we can hope for is a draw tbh. Hopefully the heavens open.

Yes Muser, a draw at this stage would seem like a victory!
Nothing more annoying than your opponents declare so that you don’t even have the satisfaction of bowling them out!
Cricket is a massive psychological test and the scoreboard pressure on England today will be gigantic😫

Rain today

Looks like it, which will be good for us, if we can somehow muster a draw it'll give us the chance of stealing it at the Oval, would be an undeserved Ashes win in reality but I'll tek it!

👍👍👍

With 2 days already gone and some rain expected today, personally think it will be a draw. As long as we avoid the follow on, we will be fine.

Wouldn’t trust our batting to bat for 2 days tbh.
