    Anderson deserves a 5-fer for the way he has bowled in this series. One more Jimmeh!

    Australia's lowest total at the MCG is 83.

    It's got to be said the Oz bowlers will fancy bowling on this.
    Jimmy's bowling that little bit quicker at 87-88mph.

    Yeah, it's ****ing piss poor to be honest. The bowling has been good, with Hughes probably the only one to throw his wicket away. There's also been a complete lack of application from most batsmen though in every innings since the second in Brisbane (apart from Hussey really).

    On recent form, this effort was much more likely than them scoring 400 or 500 I guess. Can't really be surprised that Hussey goes early and we score **** all afterward.

    Mitch's duck means he'll get 0 for 300 as his confidence is shot, so it's game over

    Hmm, some people here being a bit harsh one feels. Can't bowlers just get wickets any more through their own good bowling?

    I'd rather us declare for 78 than give him a 5 fer on Australian soil. Not worthy.

    Lol, a bit harsh surely, Burge?

    Anyway, it's time Bresnan was replaced with Tremlett.

    Sky showing the wickets again now - only the ball to get Hughes would you say was an average ball and all 4 of Anderson's wickets were excellent deliveries.

    Well, if this bounced we can't expect Strauss to admit it.

    I think Hussey, Johnson & Rhino on their own pretty much managed to hide the fact that the Oz XI was a wee bit unbalanced at Perth. I think those chickens are coming home to roost a bit here.

    5 seamers at the MCG is a bit of a nonsense, surely? Especially when it means playing a leg spinner at six who's clearly a place or two too high at this stage of his development.

    Precedent in the series would suggest not out. 50-50 though.
