    Could be a triple and double ton in a test match innings. A record? A declaration tomorrow at / by lunch.

    A long way to go yet, CP. Malan and Bairstow batted magnificently, the highest ever fifth wicket partnership against Australia. 6 for 35 was disappointing for England. Losing one of your strike bowlers hasn't helped the cause. Has Cook played his last test? Perhaps. Hopefully Smith will get another ton.

    In just over 24 hours the Perth test begins. Should be a fast pitch and good weather too.

    Old Don is in a bit of trouble, think Harvey Weinstein. As for Les, I think he ate a dodgy witchety grub and hasn't been heard of since!?

    Is it for the whole test? You'll have a good time Jules. I went a couple of years ago and watched the game from a corporate box. Happy Days!

    At the moment they are better than England and that's all that matters. If you don't mind me saying.....

    The Ashes Are On Again

    Day / night tests are unpredictable because there haven't been many played so there is not much data available to make an educated analysis. Over the last four days the match changed many times with similarities to both teams, and is on track to change yet again. Unusual toss win to bowl first. Rain delays. Australia scores 400+ runs. England dismissed for less than the follow on requirement. Australia dismissed cheaply. England finds form with the bat. DRS calls for and against both teams. The trend for not forcing the follow on as in recent times may be reassessed from here on. Should be an interesting days play. History and statistics say England can't win but a result is possible and the pressure is squarely on them. Whether they can handle it remains to be seen. England are in a position to win but Root needs to score a century and to not lose any batting partners, however, if he gets dismissed early it may well end as an Australian win or end up being a draw. The latter options won't help England's Ashes campaign. All in all a good contest and great test cricket.

    Funny game, Cricket. I'll admit I was a little off with my assessment of the English bowlers. They should open the batting!? This will be lucky to last four full days. Stokes is on fire in NZ.....

    Day 2, first session, England 2 wickets - Australia 97 runs. Australia 6/306. The pitch is starting to turn.

    Tomorrow the Day/Night Test in Adelaide starts. Whoever wins the toss and bats will definitely have an advantage, especially at twilight before the lights take full effect. Australia to win? We'll see.
