    The Sydney weather may bring the streak to an end next week.

    These days it really takes a fair amount of rain or a really flat pitch (or both) to force a draw in Australia. We have good light here until late in the day and batsmen score so fast in the modern era that I don't think scattered showers for 3 or 4 days will force a draw. Overcast conditions and a bit of rain make things tougher for batting anyway, so with early starts you'd imagine 4 days or so should be enough.

    Of course, if there's extended rain periods it might kill things off. It'd be a shame if weather broke the streak. Test starts on Tuesday, so it looks like things should clear up from day 3 on.
    It's cold on the outside they say
    But the cold leaves you clear while the heat leaves a haze

    Yeah - good point.

    Anyway, I'd be more gutted about Warney's farewell getting washed away than the streak ending, tbh.

    Yeah of course. Not to mention the chance for a whitewash or for England to steal a test. Not a test I'd like to see washed out.

    marc71178 - President and founding member of AAAS - we don't only appreciate when he does well, but also when he's not quite so good!

    But they did lose a match, and might have lost another on the 5th day had the weather intervened. Either way, it wasn't a whitewash, which would be all thats required to stop the streak.

    Not saying we could beat the Aussies in India (though we might be able to), but I'd put money down on at least one draw to spoil the streak...as thats whats required.

    But the discussion is moot since the matches vs India are in Australia.
