How comes Swann has come it at #11?

Aussies 55-3

Looks like this pitch isn't as good a batting pitch as has been made out, or both teams are rubbish :D

I think it's a combination of good bowling and poor batting.

The pitches are dry and not particularly quick but the bowlers on both sides are getting the ball to swing and spinners are finding a bit of turn.

Just sounds like the batsmen on both sides have been guilty of playing some silly shots.

Get them out for 160 and they'll have to follow on

EDIT: That said the first 6 wickets haven't been a problem for England so far it's getting out the bowlers that is the big issue.

He did.

Excellent job by Broad and Swann this morning, good to watch too. :cool:

England 240-4

473 ahead with 2 and a bit days still to play.

Root notches his first test century and Bell is past 50 already.

Will be interesting to see if England bat out the day you would imagine they'll want to have a few hours this evening to try and pick up a few wickets from tired fielders

Let Root get his 200, then declare. Will rub the Aussies noses further into the dirt.

Barring some sort of miracle change of weather conditions looks like the 3rd test will be a draw and as a result England retain the Ashes.

The weather has saved us big time we were on the ropes for the neutrals its a shame for the series as an Australian win would have set it up nicely for the last 2 tests but having suffered for so long at the hands of the Australians you take whatever wins you can get.

We'd have been done and dusted by now with a convincing Aussie win without a bit of good old British summer time weather. :fonz:

Rather wrap up the retention of the Ashes with a win, but more important to hold onto it than how you do it.

Quote:
Michael Vaughan has repeated his call for Hot Spot technology to be withdrawn immediately from the decision review system (DRS), after its founder, Warren Brennan, admitted that its effectiveness has been undermined by the protective coating players use on their bats.

Brennan issued a statement from Melbourne late on Friday night, UK time, in which he responded for the first time to the row provoked by Channel 9's claims, since furiously denied, that players were successfully cheating his system – and urged "the removal of protective coating from bats' edges" to "achieve optimum Hot Spot results".

But those claims prompted derision from Vaughan and another former England captain Alec Stewart, when they were interviewed on the outfield before the start of play on the second day of the fourth Test.

"It's utter nonsense," Vaughan told BBC Test Match Special. "He's trying to protect his company. But it's not down to the game of cricket to help Hot Spot – it's down to Hot Spot to help cricket.

"I don't think Hot Spot can carry on. He's admitted his system doesn't work when bats have got covering on, and that's not going to stop. With that statement, it has to go, because he's openly admitted his technology will not work."

Stewart described Brennan's statement as "embarrassing … it's just ridiculous. Bat coverings have been used for at least 30 or 40 years, so for him to be saying that is laughable. I'd be embarrassed if I was associated with that company with that statement.

"Yesterday [Friday] it was very good," Stewart said of the technology, "but he has openly admitted there is a fault with his system. I'd suggest he takes his technology back to the nets and improve on it and come back and play with the big boys. It's just not good enough."

England and Australia joined the International Cricket Council in a qualified defence of Hot Spot before the fourth Test, with both Alastair Cook and Michael Clarke dismissing Vaughan's earlier suggestions that it should be scrapped immediately, Cook saying that would "set a very dangerous precedent".

It will therefore stay for the fifth Test, at the Kia Oval, but the ICC's chief executives committee will hold further discussions about the future of DRS at their next meeting in Dubai, in September. Brennan has previously expressed his hope that a new system involving the Snickometer will be in operation for the return series in Australia this winter, and England and Australia are to propose a small but significant change in the protocol, whereby teams will not lose a review if their challenges are defeated only by the awarding of the benefit of the doubt to the on-field umpires.

Day Two of the 4th test.

England 238 all out

Australia 140-4 as we approach tea

Broad ripped through Australia before lunch but Australia have had the best of the second session.

Australia 187-7 chasing 299.

Rain delays mean play has been extended to try and force a result today.

203-8

They've had a good old fashioned England style batting collapse.

To force the extra 1/2 hour we probably need another wicket in the next 6 overs can't see the umpires playing on with 2 wickets to go.

No reviews left on either side Broad has bowled brilliantly
