Indeed then we let them off the hook a bit.

The change of ball has done us some good though. Keep going lads let’s turn the screw now.

A great session this morning, Aus were very lucky with a couple of decisions. It’s good to see we’re still up for this and fighting.

We’re still in with a chance, just about, if we can get these last two wickets just after lunch.

We’ll probably lose by 100 runs or so but it’s sport and you just never know.

Its the hope that kills
I was just going to say the same thing, still even a competitive game will be an improvement on what has gone before.

Mind you, with the series already won, the Aussies do not seem to have their usual 'edge'. Be nice to actually win a game...;)

It wouldn’t be the first time we’ve won a dead rubber but it would give us a bit of positivity to gain the victory. The Aussies love a good whitewash so maybe the draw we got in Sydney has helped us in this test match. It’ll certainly give us confidence we can get the now 199 runs we need.

I like that we’re attacking and playing with intent to score runs. Just be selective with the shots to play and the shots to leave.

After Sydney I did say I thought we had a chance to win this game but changed my mind when we let them off the hook in their first innings. Now I think we’ll go on and claim the victory.

3 down now. Root and Stokes both on 0.
Last hope for England. The rest won't have the stomach for the fight, they can't handle pressure.

The slowdown as started. The loss of wickets and trying to rebuild as seen the run rate drop from over 4 to less than 3.5. That will bring the new ball into play, and probably be the final nail.

Brain dead stupidity by Stokes. It's a fucking test match not a bloody white ball game.
Hopeless, they have chucked it away in the space of 30 minutes.
BOTTLERS.

The first time they have actually been given a reasonable start, and what do they do....
The only thing I have got wrong was I was adamant it would be 5-0.
The only thing that saved them was some weather that took a bit of time out of the 'drawn' game.
The records will say 4-0, but they were comfortably getting beat in the 'drawn' game.
Time to end a few test match careers.
