    Just looked at the leading wicket takers, Finn the only one with respectable figures, crazy he's looked the least threatening of the English quicks, admittedly I didn't watch him today I think he was suppose to have bowled well.

    Your reverse psychology doesn't fool me.

If North tons up and saves the match he deserves his spot, he's heads on the copping block, and so's a test, to ton up under that pressure earns him a couple more shots. Unlikely with Swan there though.
    Wont back him to survive against KP, let alone Swann tbh.

    I just can't see us winning, anything will get in the way. It just will, it'll rain or Hussey will get a ton supported by Siddle or something stupid.

    Then we'll lose the Ashes 2-1.

    Sanga isn't the best off spinner in the history of cricket? News to me.

    Hey, that's the old English mentality? You're not like that anymore remember? Australia is the new England.

    I think we'll win by an innings and 40 runs.

    From my moles at the bureau:

    Forecast for Tuesday
    Cloudy with a shower or two during the morning increasing to showers and the
    chance of a thunderstorm during the afternoon. Warm with light to moderate
    northeast to northerly winds and a light to moderate southwest afternoon sea
    breeze.

    Precis Showers. Afternoon thunderstorm.
    City: Min 20 Max 32

    _______

    Sounds like a four-hour window to press for victory.

    really thought the first two tests would be where Ponting would have the best chance to show his class. His conversion rate is terrible these days, Watson-esk. Thought Perth would be the worse place where he'd get bounced in a spell like Sharma did, and Roach did, and what not.

    The hourly forecast suggests it will be sunny in the morning session between 10:30 and 12. And from 12 to 4 there are 'widely scattered storms' with only a 35-40% chance of rain (we are screwed)! Then from 4 to 6 there is a very high chance of significant rain, all the way into the night. So sounds as though for the majority of the day, barring maybe the session after tea we will have to bat...
