Re: England v Australia 3rd Ashes Test

Hard to see that session as anything other than the one that handed the Ashes to Australia.
Fine bowling indeed but you have to find a way to dig in.
Will be a huge shame if the series is decided after 3 tests.

Haven’t watched the game but a good one for Norwich to get out of the road first up. It will get easier for them from here, of course. Congrats to the OP who I think suggested a 4-1 win. It’s never easy to accurately predict matches such as these. I imagine Grant Hanley can only succeed as a gimmick.
