What's your point?
'Cutting it fine' sounded like you're suggesting we should declare? That's all.

Indeed.
2 non reviews.
Balls bouncing over the stumps.
Balls not finding fielders.

Had to run out.

3-1 given how dominant we have been in this series would be a disappointing result

You'd hardly guess Joseph root is one of the best batters in the world the way he's gone this series so far.

Doug Walters never had a hundred in England either. Still a bloody good bat though.

Wow that was an embarrassing last hour or so from England.

Some of those shots were disrespectful to the people who’ve played the game before them.

Alan Border would mark the card of some players if they’d done that in his team.

The less experienced Green and Boland first dry up the England runs then take 3 wickets each. GOAT does not bowl an over and still England beaten in 3 days. Very good win and congratulations to the Australian side and Captain Cummins. Player of the series Travis Head.

Australia will need to develop some openers for the coming years. Pucovski in the box seat if he can find some form and evade the short ball. Hopefully there are others coming through with a sound red ball technique.
