Ashes – Finale

Final day of the final test of this year’s Ashes series. As Cricinfo’s homepage reads it is “Advantage Australia” at the moment.

Australia with the help of some wonderful bowling through Shane Warne and McGrath is now in a comfortable seat. The pressure is on England. Can they hold themselves together for another two sessions? I am not a great fan nor a follower of the England and Australian cricket teams. But the current series clearly has got me hooked into it.

After a successful day yesterday with the ball, Flintoff failed today with the bat. It is now left to Pieterson, Collingwood and the tail-enders to hold their nerves to ensure a draw. Is it going to be a comfortable draw and a series win for England? Or is it going to be a nail biting finish like the second test?
