    Also factor in that it's a 5th day pitch.

    This decleration was a total smokescreen. Five plus per over with no field restrictions and the actual overs remaining was not aggressive. A target of 200 may have been.

    They can play until 7.30, and have two spinners bowling

    Is there not scope to go beyond 19.00 due to the minimum overs in the last hour and/or the fact that we're making up overs from earlier days' play?

    I'm not watching this, has the light deteriorated or is Clarke trying to troll England into a mistake?

    7pm is scheduled close which means 7.30 is the latest they can go as per standard rules, plus I think day five has some extra stipulations doesn't it?

    Spin looks more dangerous and difficult to score off.

    Light's fine; pitch is turning and bouncing.

    Think Warner might be better on this pitch than Clarke, gets a bit of bounce doesn't he?

    There you go, we'll get 29 or more if they bowl them before the allotted time (which would be a little silly unless we are down to the tail)

    If Warne was England captain he'd declare now; gotta be prepared to lose to win.
