Re: England vs Australia 5th test

Current odds at Bet365 are: England win 1/3, Oz win 11/4, draw 25/1.

Obviously this may change if we perform the almost standard collapse tomorrow but England are clearly current favourites - despite Smith's obdurance/excellence.

Re: England vs Australia 5th test

Some truth in what you say Foulthrow but, thankfully, an innings closes when 10 men are dismissed even if Mr Smith is still batting away in excellence at his end. If we can get a bit over 230 this 2nd inning (big IF maybe), I'd fancy our chances- even if SPD Smith gets 100+ again.

Amazing progression- just looking at the stats.
When Lamb (who got 49) was out, Lancs were 455-7. Now 538-8 so 83 scored.
