    It amuses me that this is the first time we've managed to take all 20 wickets in a match this series.

    I'd start to worry if no wicket is down by lunch and less than three down by tea.

    There should be a line of bain maries from the top of the bowler's run up to just behind the umpire. Could run in with the ball in one hand and a plate full of food in the other.

    Just run of play on the flatest of wickets should still see Australia lose. Weirder things have happened though.

    When Ponting gets his triple tomorrow, do you feel the selectors would be able to convince him to play on?

    Need to break the WR by 200 runs in a line-up with a left-handed Ponting*, a Clarke who has developed a recent vulnerability to unplayable deliveries and Watto. Not optimistic.

    *may as well bat cack, tbh.

    Well actually, nothing that weird has happened in 135 years of test cricket.

    very rare for anything like this kind of target, with the available time remaining being set though

    even though the loss is likely, if it occurs I just hope we at least stand up and fight

    That's only because of the position they are in, within a fourth innings. It's pretty unique. Many of the flattest of flat pitches that only got through two innings would have made a target like this chaseable if there was no time limit. Just look at the timeless test of RSA vs ENG.

    Not saying it will happen, just that the situation is so unique that from this situation a victory might not actually be all that earth-shattering (if the situation was played out over 20 times or so).
