    So....what happens next?

    With the way the series has gone so far, is anyone brave enough to make a prediction?

    Haha somehow I had missed this similarity from 05, in light of this, voting in favour of an England win.

    If it's a draw (unless it rains, in which case it's obviously out of anyone's control) I'll be spitting in fury. England's only chance is to win - an Australian win is neither here nor there, it's a question of England win or England don't win.

    Either way I've expected Australia to win this series all along, it's surprised me (pleasantly so) how competetive England have been until Headingley, but I still think Australia hold most of the aces going into The Oval.

    Say it again though - as long as it's a deck that enables a result, I'll be happier with that than with a draw.

    We're ****ed, frankly. Ding Dong at #3? FFS, he averages practically a negative score there.

    Stars are aligning in our favour tbh. Let's see what Somerset can do in their second innings. Anyone remember when they last won the Twenty20 Cup?

    From what I hear in the room next door they're about to be beaten by Sussex? Not sure if that happened in 2005?

    I'm honestly not sure - don't have a clue what happened in the Twenty20 finals any time from 2005 onwards. And never have had a clue what happened in any preliminaries, ever.

    They need to. If it came down to talent we'd win squat.
