Bam, just like that, innings over. And he'll be on a hat-trick next innings!

One man should not have this much power in this game. Luckily I'm not an ordinary man.

Lovely. Jimmy stranded on 499!

Assuming England bat competently... Westley has one innings to get himself on a Qantas flight.

So with no further test matches before the Ashes, England won't play an inexperienced batsman at 3. It's going to be Gary Ballance isn't it. :fp:

I know it's kind of common sense but is that an assumption or something that they have actually said?

Just my assumption, surely throwing someone green into an ashes series is a recipe for disaster.

Could it be any worse than what we have endured for the past few years though?

Despite the rain, we are going to be bowled out today.

Decent work by Stokes.

Somebody is going to get a session where the cloud goes, the sun shines and the pitch plays completely differently. Unfortunately I don't think it'll be England.

500 for Jimmy - middle stump out of the ground. Perfect!

Stuart Broad has now had seven catches dropped off his bowling in this series :fp:

I'm watching him and Swanny do an evening in Portsmouth at the end of this month. Thoroughly looking forward to it :wub:
