    Raining heavy and very gloomy in N Manchester, showers seem to be avoiding the real OT.

    I’m sorry mate but that’s bollocks. You’re talking nearly 80 overs there.

    So what you’re saying is that if we’re 375-5 (3 wickets down rather than 2 and using the current run rate) that we’re in trouble!?!

    If we get to 375-5 I’ll have my cock in hand at how well we’re doing.

    If we bat out today and tomorrow we will have scored more runs than the Aussies and they’ll need to bat for longer than 1 session to put the game out of reach. They’d have to bat until nearly tea time on Monday.

    Quite enjoying this. Quick question look in at the fact we are on day 3 - what chance do we have of winning for are we just trying to get a draw?

    Game finished on Sunday I think swp?
    But other than that I think you make a good point if there's no further weather interruption

    Very very slim. If we bat through all day tomorrow we may just nudge ahead.

    Both sides always have a collapse in them though so everything could change either way between now and Sunday night.

    Only chance we win is we get a lead of 100 and the Aussies collapse in their second innings leaving us a gettable total.
    Put it this way I'd snap your hand off for a draw now

    Ha. Sunday. (Which is my Monday as it’s the first day of the working week. Been here seven years and still get the day’s wrong)
