    Hypothetical odds of 10-1 that Australia will win the toss.

    They're due a good call.

    Hypothetical odds of 10,000,000 to 1 ON that they'll elect to bowl if they do...

    Australia lost the toss again - 3/3.

    England elect to bat. To no one's surprise.

    Cook, looking at you, now.

    Five days, five days...

    And so we have to add -
    • 7
    • 14
    - for a grand total of 83 runs

    From SIX inningses.

    His Tour average is now a touch over 13.

    This is England's opening batsman.

    This is not going well.

    Like, at all.

    Actually, there is, somewhere, a rather amusing video of Piers Moron facing an over from Brett Lee.

    It serves as a warning to us all.

    Best player, from an English perspective so far is most definitely T.Rain.

    In Perth.

    At the WACA.

    A draw is a win for 'us', let's not forget.

    Two won, one drawn, two to go...

    Let the rain fall and fall and fall.

    Well the convicts could certainly bat for that length of time if they wished.

    There comes a time, and i think realistically that it is a time we have reached now, when you just have to make what you can of the situation.

    It's bad for you to talk to yourself so much.
