    Reality was despite the position England got in to 140 years if history suggests you ain't chasing down that type of score in the 4th innings

    Best part about it is the Poms got some good cricket out of them that at least won't punish us when the game is on the line

    1 more win in Perth to make it 3-0 and then just go through the motions for 5-0 as they capitulate some more

    It was back in the early 2000s when Tugger Waugh sent the Indians back in after we rolled them cheaply in India in the first dig and had a sizeable lead in the game and were 1-0 up in the series

    We had Binger Lee Dizzy Gillespie McGrath and Warnie plus our batting line up included Hayden Langer Ponting Gilchrist etc so we were well equipped in theory

    Indians had other ideas and VVS Laxman got 270 odd and Rahul Dravid got 180 odd and we went a full day without a wicket

    Indians got a lead and then bowled themselves to victory. The tide in the series turned and India got the series win and denied the Aussies a first win in India in 30+ years etc

    All blame goes on Tugger Waugh and his decision to not bat and grind them into the ground etc

    Following on gave them a chance and they took it
    Batting would have crippled them

    Never in doubt. Can't believe anyone doubting Steve Smith's decision to not enforce the follow on.

    Wrong. We would have not batted again if they follow on.

    England in 992 Tests have a highest 4th innings chase of 332 in 1928??

    Or that in the 108 times England have been asked to chase a score above 332 they have won 0 of these 108 games losing 80 of these games and drawing the rest??

    Which stat you referring to??

    Because there was very minimal chance we were losing that game

    Scoring runs when you don't win and scoring runs and you do are two different things

    They never got into that game. Sure whilst Root was there they had a chance

    But they still needed 170 odd runs to win.
    Every time a wicket fell it was going to ramp up the pressure on the batting side

    As it did so spectacularly today

    If they had of got to 100 with 5-6 wickets in hand then the pressure would have intensified on them as they would have really started to believe they could win not just hopeetc


    Test Cricket for all the changes with T20 and ODI still has statistics and nuances that stand the test of time .

    350+ run chases in the 4th innings just don't happen
    Be more likely to see Shaun Marsh 100s than this

    incorrect

    No, each run is worth 1 whether winning or losing. South Africa d Australia with 414/4 4th inns & South Africa won by 6 wickets. At 2/130 they could have done it

    We bowl to them when following-on at night and with no confidence theres a high chance we dont bat again making 4th inns debate moot. The decision not to follow-on was still incorrect but as i said before its difficult to make correct decisions all the time. hindsight etc

    Smith has no idea when it comes to appealing LBW decisions with the ball. If a pace bowler hits a batsmen on the front pad above the knee roll you don't waste an appeal on it. Unfortunately, he does it every time - then wonders why hawk-eye shows the ball going over the top of the stumps.

    I really don't give a **** what people think but your captain should be the best player at two up in the side

    Considering in cricket advantage goes to the side winning it then it imperative that you winning it more than not

    Smith seems to be shocking at it

    Get the tinniest **** in the team to go toss the ****er coin

    Every little advantage helps etc

    Gonna miss the WACA, no more Fremantle Doctor, no more bouncy pitch with balls going over the keeper and hitting the sightscreen on the full.

    Moving to yet another beige state of the art stadium...zzzzzz

    Still vividly remember sitting in a park at the Entrance and hearing Doug Walters' last ball six.

    england's problem to me seems to be that they can certainly win a session or a day, but they can never back it up. i fully expect that australia will bowl them out by lunch for about another 50 or so. 350 is probably a par score. the quality of their tail makes me think 1 more wicket and they're all out.

    also, what a suprise! they move bairstow up the order and they get a decent score!
