Simply unbelievable. No words to describe with. Hats off to both teams. Tremendous fight. Man of the match should be Warne.

Bugger.

I did think we would draw this match, but I am still very gutted.

Why does the Aussie tail have to be so bloody good?

It was an awful last over from Harmison, deary me. Only two had to be played at. The silence of the crowd is quite something.

I want to blame Harmison for bowling negative in the last over. He bowled 3 that the batsmen didn't even had to play. He should have persisted with the line Freddie was bowling (on and around off - not sure which way it'll swing and the batsman must play with the bat).

Nonetheless, it's the best draw I have ever seen.

England's inability to polish off tails has come to haunt them again. I wonder if Australia leave this test with a new lease of life? They might just enjoy the psychological ascendancy now.

Should be Warne, rightly..4 wickets...90 off 122, when Aus needed it most...and later a good 34...

But of course, it could be Vaughan with that 166, or Strauss 106, or Ponting 156....But Warne deserves it most...

England are by no means the best at getting rid of the tail, but you musn't forget that the Aussie tailenders are no mugs There are 5 fifties in the bottom 3, the days of '9, 10 and jack' are over.

What a test! what an Ashes ! This is a battle of epic proportions, one that would go down in history, and would be re-lived forever in memory.

Harmison had a bad last over but Lee played every ball on its merit. He is a spirited cricketer, this Brett Lee. I think Andrew Flintoff is the best fast bowler in the world at this moment and easily the best genuine all-rounder since the famous quartrets of the 80's. Ricky Ponting, quite possibly played one of the greatest match saving knock in test histroy. You won't find too many 150+ in fourth innings. Saying that, I think, Australia is in trouble because of their top order. None of them looked purposeful in this series so far, save the knock by Ponting today. And England have taken Gilchrist out of the equation with Flintoff. That is the most crucial pondering point. At the same time, all non-performing English middle order batsmen have come out of their patch in this test match. Strauss, Vaughn, Bell all found scoring in this match. Aussies must do away with Gillespie if they want to win this series. Any other team but Australia would have lost today. But, they barely got by and Mark Nicholas is correct saying, "they got a free jail out of card today". England must reposition Pietersen in the outfield when they are bowling. He continues to drop everything within the inner circle.

The best match saving innings I ever saw was Athertons 180*, but Pontings innings probably tops it even though Atherton batted over 10 hours. Atherton had a few let offs, but Punters innings was faultless.



This test series just emphasis' yet again what a joke the current Zimbabwe test series is.

Hey! Rob,,i would still rank Atherton's innings higher than Ponting's simply because he had to bat longer against a quality bowling attack where odds were against England, it is one of the best match saving innings i have ever seen. In this case we all knew Autralia had a chance of drawing the game. Infact if they could have some more wickets in hand, i m sure they would go for a win. Still its one of the best drawn test i have ever seen.

Yea, while this test series is turnig out to be pretty exciting, reading BBC one would feel England & Austrralia are the only 2 teams out there, the rest being amateurs.

They conveniently forget other teams giving Australia tough times and want us to believe Pieterson and Flintoff are the best players in the world right now.

Part of the same old school mentality that cant accept players like Muralitharan
