True, but I don't think Harmison bowled that badly.

To be fair I think it's more a measure of how good Australia were batting than poor England fielding.

Comparably the England batting has been woeful. Crap decision for Strauss yes but he should never have been in that position in the first place.

Tea.

Atherton-esque effort by Cook here, I'm very very impressed (if not utterly bored out of my skull, block block block).

Dare I believe they'll bat this out...

That was, without a doubt, the best over in Test cricket that I have watched in awhile. I was at the SCG the day Steve Waugh scored his 100 off the last ball of the day, and I could sense it was the same atmosphere at the WACA yesterday.

Watching the Poms today, they do have the goods to hold Australia to a draw - or, if they steadied themselves, a win, but the real question is do they have the "ticker"??? (a good Aussie expression)

Colly gone.

So KP will bash it about for about 10 overs before attempting to slog sweep and get caught. Flintoff will come in, show no footwork and depart not long after. Jones will then make a single-figure score.

Somewhere in between Cook is going to boil over as well (haha, pun).

Ali Cook - Well played, sir.

Don't think it's enough though.

Hopefully Pieterson and Flinoff can bat out a whole day to keep the series alive....or even win it for England? Would rank up there with Edgbaston 2005 as one of the great test matches...

And I'll continue supporting the poms until Hodge gets a recall...

England has a day to score 292 while protecting 5 wickets.

If they really are worth their salt, they should be able to do this. Come on, it's a whole bloody day!

Sending out the nightwatchman was a strange and rather wasteful decision.
I suspect this is McGrath's last season. He's much more into last - hoorah bravado.

since Stuart Clarke still has his usual couple of wickets due it does seem like england won't make it

And it's over.

England, you fail. Go home. Come back when you learn how to actually hold onto wickets.

Flintoff was playing some awesome shots that first hour, although he probably shouldn't have been.

Ruthless performance by Australia though, especially on the back of their second innings. Probably still are the best team in the world.

You do wish that England didn't capitulate that easily though. Strauss didn't turn up, I've been one of the few supporters of Jones but his batting (which he's ostensibly been chosen over Read for) has let him down tremendously, Giles and Anderson (who've hardly played Test cricket over the past year) hardly justified their selection, Harmison until this Test showed little control, Flintoff's footwork more or less deserted him until today, and he's made some bizarre captaincy decisions. Bit of a case of too little, too late.

Still, well played Australia.

Disappointing as the outcome is, there's no shame in losing to the best team in the world, I've said it before, & no doubt I'll say it again, but the Aussie cricket team must surely rank as the greatest SPORTS team ever, they've totally dominated the sport for as long as I can remember, & they don't seem to be showing any sign of faltering.

Hopefully this doesn't make for boring Test in Melbourne

They've got to somehow move Boxing Day so its the second or Third Test next time
