Great start to the day, however, being English, we are now supposed to be terrified that Australia will chase down the biggest fourth innings total in history to win the test match. Let’s be realistic, if that is going to happen, Clarke will need to make 200 and Hadden 150. If they do, fair play. England bowled well today, and the 180 run unbroken partnership was quality batting. I’m still confident that – unless the weather spoils what should be a terrific last day – England will win this game. If the Aussies get close, it’ll be a phenomenal contest.
