Australia declared on 416 for 8. That is a big total from the overnight 126-3

It ain't going to be easy.

Could do with some more rain!

How sad that we are hoping to rely on some rain to prevent us losing a Test Match. That would hardly be a way of regaining some pride!

Actually I am just fooling around

Obviously I would much rather we won or batted a draw

Perhaps you have to hold your hand up to show you are joking?

Australia are better than us - that is sport.

Day 3 should be about to start, but yet another rain delay. Let's hope England don't make stupid mistakes early once they get going

England 388 to win, 30-0 at close of play. More chance of seeing an Aurora at Boscombe Down than winning this :ninja:

Notwithstanding miracles a win is off the cards but can we force a draw? What's the weather forecast?!

Three overs to go with Broad and Leach at the wicket in fading light.

Oops 9 down. Jimmy walking out to the crease with 12 balls left

Too dark for Australia to be able to bowl the quicks

Broad and Anderson at the wicket

C'mon Jimmy!

One over left with Anderson facing Steve Smith

( In the last hour - Australia could have bowled more overs )
