Anyone else have the feeling that if they can get Warner now , this ends tonight ?

David Warner taking the, "Though a thousand may fall at my right side, and ten thousand may fall at left, but it will not come near me" approach to batting.

Remarkable scorecard. One man on 64 ...and four out for single figures.

Warner now with the top score in the match. Keeping the Australian flag flying almost singlehandedly.

Review for lbw against Marsh ...too high I think ...

impossible to get him out to be honest. a beacon of quality flying above all human possibility.

Yes . He survives by a whisker on height. Can count himself a little fortunate - it looked a very good shout and I thought he was considering giving it out on field.
But fair enough . Swings and roundabouts.

Who needs lbw reviews ? Finn straight through Marsh and it's 92/5 !

Great comeback Finn is making here.

Still need to find a way to get Warner...

Finn strikes again and Australia are 92 for 5. Australia on the ropes - no two ways about it.

This has been an odd series. First Test only one team showed up (England), Second Test only one team showed up (Australia) and here in the Third Test (England) have been much the better side so far.

On the form shown here by Finn it looks like Wood will miss out in the Fourth Test if fit.

Stokes on for the first time in the match. Interesting. Saving Jimmy for just one more spell tonight ?
Think it is a fair move - you don't want to exhaust all your main bowlers at once , just in case of tail end resistance. Though you feel two more wickets just about settles it...especially if one is Warner.

Stokes needs to be on target - don't want free runs offered.

How the hell did Finn go from conceding 14 in his first over, to this? Insane.

Looks like England are simply trying to collapse the Aussies around Warner, and then denying him boundaries when he's on strike. Good plan.

Finn really bowling beautifully . Beats Nevill twice ...nearly had an edge. Thrice now...
Where has this man been ? Perhaps some credit to Otis Gibson ...

Issue for Cook now is that Finn will have to rest ; need to keep the pressure on .
Presumably Jimmy back after drinks.

This is the partnership : Nevill can certainly bat , though he's new to Tests.

Resistance by Warner, much like Rogers in the first lick, finally ended.

What a strange test match this is. Probably won't make lunch on the third day! I have a vague recollection of England defeating Bangladesh in 2005 in such a way; seems strange to do it to Australia!

Being serious it's not over as the bbc reports seem to think. They only need to get 100 ahead to put massive pressure on a weak eng line-up.

seems both team have some batting wibbles at times.

I imagine Johnson will play his shots. He has the capacity - as does Starc : but can they do so in this situation ? Still trailing by 34 .

A real chance of a two day Test here.

they could add a ton. Mitch is quite capable. If they had Ashton Agar they'd be on for a 300 lead right now.

As you say later , not over yet. Nevill is a good bat , and the bowlers can all strike the ball well. England certainly can't relax until they finish this innings.

That said , having the top six out still trailing is a fairly good position !

definitely. I'd say the game is in the balance unless they are all out and only 50 ahead.

Very Happy

Yeah we all heard you , msp. And as they say , class is permanent. But even you would have to admit he he was struggling there for a while. In fact it may have been good for him to have been out of the Test side for a while : he seems to have recovered his pace as well as his form.

But a big game changer now as Jimmy has to go off with a side problem ...I do hope that isn't serious !

Had one myself when I was young(ish) and still fast and it was murder recovering. Going to hurt England going forward : and indeed this evening - he was looking very dangerous.

Someone else needs to step up now : Moeen ?

In fact with Anderson off - and Finn has had a good spell - I'm not sure this is going to finish tonight now.
Unless the spinner can chime in with a couple I can see these fellows taking this at least into tomorrow.

Think it will be Stokes and Moeen for a bit now. Just have to keep it tight and prey on a mistake by the batsmen.

Bad luck for England as they were looking very threatening five minutes ago.

Only 18 behind now so I think we can safely say this will continue tomorrow.

Won't get all the overs in either. Just a question of what it will be at the close .

Which I don't think I will stay around for . A man has to get some sleep.

Broad who has been England's best bowler of the series so far, now will have to cover for his senior partner as well.

I knew the bbc prats were jinxing them. Any "oo we're winning" when the match is the balance and your team can barely bat needs to be shot right down.

Eng sometimes look toothless, and because of that, Aus hustling to a defendable total is not completely impossible. But losing... or even drawing from here? Id hazard that is very unlikely.

Anyway, nice to see the symmetry of Steyn and Johnson getting to respective landmarks on the same day. Easily my two favourite cricketers (who have not been banned for spot fixing) in the world.

So Australia end the day effectively at 23-7. England should close it out tomorrow morning even though they are missing the leader of their attack.

Anderson looks to be in some trouble for Trent Bridge, so cleaning up the win tomorrow is all the more crucial.

As for his replacements, how close is Woakes to full fitness Hoggy?

Woakes has been playing for the last couple of weeks. Taken a few wickets as well, although his batting hasn't been very good.

If the plan is to play the final two games on wickets with some seam movement then noone on the county circuit is better than Chris Rushworth when the ball is moving laterally.
