    And as they just took an early tea we could yet wind up with no actual lost overs

    Related - I wonder when was the last time a match in England had no play lost and was still a draw. Feeling it might be the sort of thing to throw at the get-on-with-it brigade that crops up whenever we're winning.

    Did we lose play in the Lord's Test v South Africa in 2008?

    Fair enough, my only memory of that Test is South Africa batting for what felt like 6 months.

    Couldn't have lost that much. Certainly didn't cost us the game as such.

    Certainly didn't expect this Australian line up to be the first side in the series to pass 400, let alone 500.

    When was the last time we retained/won the Ashes in three tests? Must be Donkey's years.

    England were 2-0 up after 3 of 5 in 1977, but then they were winning it back.

    1929 is my guess after scanning some scorelines.

    1928 is the answer. Though England's wins from 1977 to 87 were in 6-test series so retention after 3 wasn't really on the cards. We were last 2-0 up after the third (with two to play) in 1977 but were not holding the Ashes going in.

    KP and Bell have been part of 4 Ashes winning sides (2005, 2009, 2010/11, 2013). That surely has to be up there?

    There also can't be that many Australians who have worse records than Clarke? (5 series, won 1, lost 4).
