    Yeah they climbed out of a hole there.  Pity Day 3 was rained out.

    Ashes 21/22

    Seems the English Women are following the lead of their male counterparts. Aust declared at 9/337 and England battling to avoid follow on at 8/173. I'm guessing the follow on figure for Women is 150 not 200.

    Ashes 21/22

    Well this is calamitous...from 0/68 to 8/115.  Woeful Edit: Make that all out for 124. Pitiful performance by England in the end. Just put up the white flag and surrendered.

    Ashes 21/22

    And now the 6th wicket has gone...and then I saw this and had to post it Edit: 7 down

    Ashes 21/22

    With the English openers making their 1st 50+ run partnership in the series the chances of this game getting into the 4th day have increased significantly. However since Burns got out they've now lost 4/22 of last 69 deliveries and 90 minutes to play tonight it might not. Only Root left of the...

    Ashes 21/22

    Probably true...but getting to 141 for whatever, which means a 256 run lead would certainly have been in the plan.  Aussie bowlers get almost 2 full sessions today to knock the Poms over. That'd be the plan from here on in  :)

    Ashes 21/22

    Yeah but the ball is moving around quite a bit so I'd be surprised that Aust get to 200. Plus I think they'd prefer to bowl to the English top order under lights rather than the first session tomorrow.

    Ashes 21/22

    I do not see this match going to a 4th day. I'd argue Australia only need another 100 runs to give a lead of 250+ and then bowl England out under lights.

    Ashes 21/22

    And they don't.  All out for 188. Australia has a lead of 115 with a good 25 overs of play remaining for the day.

    Ashes 21/22

    And now Stokes as well. 85/5. I can't see them batting out the day.

    Ashes 21/22

    And England 1 wicket down already...to a runout...direct hit by Labuschagne, short by about 5cm.

    Ashes 21/22

    So...after an excellent start by England, by having Australia at 3/12 at one stage, and then tempting the Aussie tail with some high leg side bowling to get 2 cheap wickets early the last two wickets have put on 50, including 3 sixes from Lyon, to propel to Australia to a few over 300.  So...

    Ashes 21/22

    Don't worry it doesn't look like that is going to happen tonight coz Labuschagne, Head & Green have counterpunched to some woeful English bowling in the last 90 minutes of play...152 on the board from 38 overs with 4 down.

    Ashes 21/22

    Wake up England coz you might not see 10 Aussie wickets down before you wake up!!! You would not want to be batting on that pitch. Good toss win by Root and even better decision to say "We'll bowl"

    Ashes 21/22

    So the 5th and final Ashes Test was due to start in Hobart in 12 minutes...but it's been raining and there is more on the way however they should get some play in today.  Doesn't look like the final XI's have been named yet but it looks like England will be blooding a new cap or two...

    Ashes 21/22

    Wow that was tight. Who says Test Cricket is boring? Well done England for surviving. Aussies batted for 20 minutes too long yesterday.

    Ashes 21/22

    2 overs to survive,  1 wicket to win.

    Ashes 21/22

    Mmm...just got a bit interesting with 2 wickets to Cummins in 3 balls. 16 overs to survive for England or 3 wickets to win for Australia.

    Ashes 21/22

    So...England have got past tea with 6 wickets in hand. Aussies now only got 29 overs to get the remaining 6 wickets. Odds swinging to a draw although the new ball is only 7 overs away. We'll see if that brings any joy to Aussies. Edit: We didn't need to wait until the new ball as Lyon gets...

    Ashes 21/22

    No probs. England may get lucky this evening coz there's a BIG thunderstorm out near Parramatta that might dump a bucketload of rain on the SCG before 6pm. Oh and just announced that almost $5m raised for McGrath Foundation
