Hopefully try and kick on get a lead around 300. Give Australia say 40 or so overs to bat and who knows!

Nice 50 for Stokes. I'm sure he is the past participle of himself with that!

Excellent morning for us, we can think about our chances of winning this test match now.

there is no chance England will declare with enough time to win. Its not how we play our cricket. if there is a chance of Australia scoring the runs. then a early declaration is out of the window.

Bat till tea and try to bowl them out in a session, without smith their shiete

Love that this Ashes in the 80s they're showing have been playing a few Simple Minds songs

Buttler gone. Crap shot

Dammm Butler gone.

Butler needs a rest next test

posted on 18/8/19

Mindless. Remember his Mankand by the Pakistani bowler, he is dozey.

This batting order needs a rethink too, Roy down to 4, Bairstow up a bit totally out of sync

Dont know were we find a opener

posted on 18/8/19

Don’t really blame Buttler. If it’s day four he doesn’t take that shot on. Clearly trying to speed things up

How many do we need?

Hopefully these two can get us up to a lead of 250-260
with 45 overs left.

250 odd

Put them in 20 mins before tea.

I’d love Root to go all out attack with everyone round the bat and close in but he’s way too defensive for that.

posted on 18/8/19

Looks like we batting for 3 more overs

Getting ready for declaration it seems

posted on 18/8/19

If England win this fair play to them. Australia will be irritated by their poor fielding and use of drs in this match. Feeling a bit like 2013.

End of this over should see declaration now Stokes has his ton

posted on 18/8/19

This is so negative.
Should have declared half an hour ago.

We've played ourselves out of winning.
Poor captaincy from Root

Stokes boosted his SR these last few overs

Should have gone for it earlier.

Great knock from Ben Stokes there is the declaration
