Well that took 4 deliveries.

AUS wins, leads series 1-0

What happens to that ball that was thrown 4 times ?

Pretty impressive fourth innings chase from England coming back from the dead against India

What an unbelievable performance from England. That’s one of the great 4th innings chases against a quality opposition.

They do seem to have found some good form with the bat. Shame for them they were rubbish out here.

Root is in fine touch.

The captaincy lifted off his shoulders.

Let's hope Smith gets a 100 this match, he's looking crankier by the day.

Warner gone cheap again to continue the pattern.

Test Average 46.6
Home Test Average 60.3
Away Test Average 34.1

A lot of that Away record is propped up with early career form. Hasn't scored a hundred overseas since playing the Bangers in 2017. Since then his away average is 22.6.

I bet his record in Asia is even worse. Guess we don't really have a better option but not good enough

Pretty simple.
Pitch looks like a road. We left a good 100 runs plus out there.
Swepson is doing exactly what I expected, aka nothing.
SL just waiting for the bad ball.

That collapse on day 2 probably didn't help us. Also Warner is useless at contributing runs in Asia. Useless. Pretty useless in England too.

A 200 run lead... we are in a bit of trouble here if time doesn't run out for the Lankans. Let's hope Warner does something for once. Has burst our subcontinent bubble a bit.

**** . Classic Aussie batting in the subcontinent. Fold like Superman on laundry day when there's pressure in a second innings chase
