Only 418 runs to get and we know how good the Aussie tail is.

 Yeah, perhaps not.

I just hope they can wrap it up so I don't miss it tomorrow at work.

How high would you rate Clarke as a Batsman then? Currently I think he is top ten all time for Aussies.. probably 4-8

Definitely one of the best I've seen since I started watching cricket in the early 90s. I think he at least makes the top 10 of the last 20 years.

Hoggy - statistically you will be hard pressed to find 18 or so better batsmen than Clarke in Aus history... in fact you wont find ten.

True, but even his match play and BMT are hard to find... none of his double centuries came with the team any higher than 55/3.

Statistics aren't everything. Clarke has had a wonderful couple of years , but thre are a lot of great players who have worn the Baggy Green over the last 136 years.

The guys scored a ton in every series he has been captain with the exception of the WI tour. Thats impressive. Add to that his All time great 2012, maybe the greatest batting year ever, definitely close. and I dont think a top ten rating is unjustified. I dont think he scored one century coming in a 200/3, or even 130/3... Last 25 tests its been Clarke or bust.

Super player , true.

In fact I think it is bedtime for me...clean up these last two for me , eh , chaps ?

Jimmy strikes to remove Siddle for a gritty 18. Australia 192-9.

England's lead now under 400. Cook will be getting as tad anxious! Wink

Assuming you meant pay.

If theres less than 5 or 10 overs played you get a full refund, 20 or less half refund iirc.

I'm guessing if no more wickets fall today, Cook and Clarke would shake hands at stumps and agree on the win for England.

Would be crazy to come back tomorrow.

200 up for Australia, with Pattinson making a very gutsy 21 - 3rd highest score of the innings so far.

CJ - Maybe... By all accounts he is a far better batsman than KP was at 19. He needs to bat up higher in Shield, maybe come down to South Africa, moan, go to Hampshire... And come back in five years as a supernova talent

Just a word of caution. Last time a British player won Wimbledon, in the Ashes that followed Australia came back from two down to win 3-2.
Of course, that Aussie team included the likes of Bradman, McCabe and O'Reilly, but still.

Holding is a brilliant commentator. I was listening to him today talk about this being the best English side he has seen since 1971 so he is hardly biased against them.
