Maybe being greedy but I think our batsmen were still a bit too cavalier in the last couple of hours. A lead of 400 should be enough though, shouldn't it?

Well Alec Stewart, who knows a fair bit about the Oval, rates the Aussies chance of winning at 1%, hope that lets you rest easier Indo ?

It's just that England in all sports (like City) tend to be gallant losers. Something tends to go wrong.
But if the Aussies can score 400 then they'll deserve it. Leach should pick up some wickets, Archer hopefully will dominate them and Broad usually starts well. Curran is useful, too.
Yes, it must be an England win

What about the draw though? With the form that Labworst unt Schmitt are in I wouldn't put it past them to bat all day.
*that should put a hex on them*

All over today.
Smith's average for series is 110. Gotta hand it to the bloke. Made out life a misery.
Good on Broad : 3 more wickets so far. Excellent series for him.
