Right then. England need to get busy to hit my 50 all out prediction.

It is coming , I can feel it. Ok maybe a tad more than 50.

Well, they're going along at 4 an over...not exactly slow.

Reckon Clarke will declare when the lead is 300-350.

Australia now lead by 223.

Suppose rain arrives soon and the day is washed out completely...if it then appears there might be say four hours play tomorrow , might not Clarke just declare immediately and have a go ? Wouldn't have too much to lose at 2 down...

Zero hours tomorrow.

If Clarke wants the win he must declare now.

If we lose part of today, that would be the logical thing to do IMO.

6 an over there. Clarke has the playing for a quick declaration.

I wish England's batsmen could play this sort of attacking innings. That was what saw them race to over 500.

You have a lot of faith in that rain forecast trebs Smile 

I am generally more optimistic than you , I think we would agree ? But I never believe in weather saving England ...in my experience it hardly ever does. English weather tends to arrive when the opposition need it...

Well if we're honest about the weather forecast then it was meant to rain all day today, but it didn't. Then it was supposed to rain before lunch, but it didn't. And it's still not raining now.

And Root's just caught Warner!

Warner actually did a decent job there for Australia. But I think Root will take a little extra satisfaction from that...

Missed stumping and bit of a hammering in the over. If Aussie keep going like this the can force us to even bat before it rains the match off.

I don't see them declaring just yet awhile. Is tricky when you don't really know how many hours you have left...Clarke wants to win , but he doesn't want to set England 280 odd in expectation of shortened days , only to see the rain slip by and England win by three wickets with a couple of hours to spare...
If no rain today I reckon they will bat an hour after tea at least.

I see your point, but in the context of this series, a draw is probably just as a bad as a loss for Australia.

Swann bowls Khawaja for just 22 and Aus are 97-3.

Skipper next up. Should still be able to guide Australia to a commanding lead...but will they have enough time to bowl England out?

Or will the rain that's looming on the radar intervene?

Clarke will be on us way soon and have to work out whether he has the nerve to declare now or give it up for the rain.

They would be 90-10 favs to win this otherwise I suspect.

Swann bowls Khawaja round his legs...

Yeah , Duty , he will be ready to take a risk I'm sure : but it is not an easy decision to make. If Lyon could bowl as well as Swann , he might have enough runs already ! But I suspect he doesn't want to rely on his spinner too much...and setting England a target of only three per over might give him less chance of winning than batting them out of it and just praying he gets enough overs to bowl them out.
Think England bat better when they have a run target than when they are just trying to stay in.

Watson gone now ! Might get bowled out...

I would've thought so too earlier, but they're not scoring as quickly as I thought they would (still around 4 an over).

I would think Clarke will want his bowlers to have at least a couple of hours at England's batting today.

For the next test I think bairstow has to go.

He's done nothing to earn his place and looked poor and and a bit easy to get.

Taylor for him.

Oh dear. Bresnan getting tanked in that over.

All a bit easy for Aussie under no pressure and needing to get quick runs and doing so with ease.

A 6 against him as poor bowling there and a good shot.

Not sure I would want to see England "steal" a win due to two Australian declarations . Would seem a little hollow.
Don't want to lose either of course !

I think Clarke would want at least 320 , and probably a few more.  But I really have no more idea what he is going to do than I have where your blasted rain has got to Smile

I had been counting on a relaxed early night !

Tomorrow Alfie. As doody says today looks clear.

As I said it is Wee weeing down down here and they say it is heading that way and will set in tomorrow.

So they have to get England out today or can just give up.

Australia 118-4. Going at a fair clip, nothing extravagant in terms of the run rate, nevertheless a very healthy going. And the lead is 277.
