Couldn't resist a look and to my amazement Labuschagne has gone LBW.
For a tailender he has all the shots just not necessarily in the right order
Plumb lbw too! Was fully expecting him to get another half century minimum there
The ticket price is pretty outrageous now for The Ashes - there's only so many times watching England players fish outside the offstump or play down the wrong line anyone can take!
Australia in can't bat against a swinging ball shocker.
We'll see how the rest of the test pans out, but it may very much come down to the disastrous selection at OT that may well have cost a very very poor England side the Ashes, against a very very poor Australia side.
Was £150 for the better seats this year, most days sold out too so people will pay it
Well in Jofra lad, the game is well set up if we can make 250 in the second innings
Good end to the day for England. Dealt with those final 4 overs well (for the most part)
Shame we couldn't bowl their tail out a bit sooner but reckon most England fans would've taken this after day 2. Denly was lucky to be dropped too.
Lucky to be selected.
So far so good today. Was expecting an early collapse. What kind of lead do we need to be safe? 400?
It feels different, the ashes have gone, the intensity isn't there and therefore makes batting easier. They say it isnt a dead rubber ,but it is .
The pressure might be off a little but England will be determined not to lose the series and the Aussies will be wanting to win outright on UK soil.
Isn't a dead rubber for me. Pride is at stake.
Archer will be a fantastic bowler in a couple of years
We ve squared the series!
Well deserved. Their heads could've gone down after the last match and they haven't done that. Great win.
my summary of this ashes series
ended up a decent battle between 2 even teams, oz probably shaded it in sessions won, but the only draw result was a dead cert england win at lords but for the weather
but they still deserved to retain the urn over the series
climax was still great between archer & wade, just shows test match cricket isn't dead, far from it
i spoke to a guy who doesn't follow cricket yesterday and couldn't understand why winning today would be that important after the ashes are gone
1, we didn't lose the series
2, there's a test match league, which isn't that well published
3, it was all played in a great spirit with no real controversies (apart from the umpiring)
My summary, two dreadful teams, delighted I get a refund for tomorrow and don’t have to go.
Roll on gutless ecb selection that glorify inadequacy.
