All match shiz in here bois, as it stands we've both made one change. Birdo in for Starc on our side and Overton replaced with the South African born Tom Curran. Some speculation around that Ali won't be playing either with pleb leggie Mason Crane on standby.

Feel for Overton, he’s been their best bowler this series.

England have at least done a good job of tightening up and stopping the scoring. If they can turn that pressure into wickets in the last session, then we might have a game.

Lack of pace going to be the excuse for every dismissal? 0 footwork from both Smith & Marsh was probably a bigger factor than the deck.

Triptanes

Very povo today. 7 for 60 something pretty much a poms batting performance

Seems like it's holding up in the wicket. Starc missing here might actually be a good thing if that makes sense.

Regardless of the current series situation Cook is arguably under the most pressure this test than any other.

Ridiculous obviously but there's a germ of a point there. He needs a good series there, rather than the odd innings, to put the last doubts to bed. And because Australia does, sick of our fannying about on England tours.
