What an absolutely infuriating team we are. Where was this in the first innings?

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

There's a glimmer of hope, but I fully expect to wake up tomorrow to Australia being 190-4.

Just checked the BBC text feed after finishing classes.

Urgh, it's the hope that kills you. 354 is just on the edge of purely speculative territory.

EDIT - It would be the 10th highest successful run chase in test history and England's highest, so possibly debatable as to how speculative it is.

I'd be amazed if we can bat all day, let alone chase that down.

I'm wondering if I was a little optimistic.

I really, really want them to win this. Definitely still advantage Aus but a helluva comeback so far.
