Third day at the Oval

I’m having a good weekend so far, hacking away at the overgrown bushes in the back garden while listening to TMS. England did, as I’d hoped, steady their play under Strauss and Trott, with a further 99 runs on the board before the captain succumbed. Trott ended up with a century, and stayed out until the end. Flintoff’s last test innings at the crease was short but exciting, as he got 22 from 18 balls.

Australia are now in and have just over two days to get 546 to win (or somehow stay in that long over a dry period to drag out a draw). Either way, it’s a massive task. However, England do need to take the full ten wickets.

And Stuart Broad has just taken the ball.
