Default Match Thread: 3rd Ashes Test Match

Averages & Other Stats

Previews
Lets hope this test was as good as the other where England snatched vitcory from the jaws of what would of been a shocking defeat that would of affectively killed this Ashes series.

The Australia side is likely to be unchanged from Edgbaston. Brett Lee has been cleared fit and although Glenn McGrath has trained, it will be a surprise if he is risked. England's only conundrum is choosing between an out of form Hoggard and uncapped Tremlett, the former a swing bowler the latter a taller quicker bowler.

The Old Trafford pitch is hard and dry but is likely to take turn later in the match, the way this series has gone so far though it may not get into day 4.

People call Antigua Lara's den and Many others call Old Trafford Warne's place. All this talk on how Warne won't be effective until day 3 or 4 because of the pitch in my mind is Rubbish.

Shane warne is a special player and he'll find a way to make the ball Turn.

Hey guys since the Ashes have been so exciting do you think the ICC may bring back 4 day Tests.

Great Post! Rob

Warne coudl turn it on glass, so you are right it is rubbish.

My only hope is that England don't get carried away with how quickly they scored at Edgbaston and start collapsing playing over exubrant strokes.

While batting England have shown a distinct lack of common sense. Bad shot selection, impatience and over exhuberance have been their downfall. Vaughan is clearly out of form and needs to bat lower down. Pieterson needs to come in at three.

I didn't see a problem with Englands approach at Edgbaston. In the 1st innings the Australian bowlers sprayed it and England capitalised as they should do, exactly the way Australia look to bat (4 an over+).

It is important they don't get carried away though. I wasn't that impressed with Flintoff's 1st innings at Edgbaston. Yes, he made 62, yes he hit 5 sixes but didn't bat with much brains, just slogged and it came off, in a way he hit himself back into form. His 2nd innings was a much better effort I thought, if you take out the onslaught at the end it was actually a brilliantly crafted half century.

I would pick Tremlett for this match. Can he bat?

He is no mug in domestic cricket and can hit a long ball, but looked all at sea when he batted against Australia in an ODI so I wouldn't expect wonders from him. He would bat at number 9 probably.

Default The Ashes: 3rd Test

time for payback.....

macgrath has to go through the fitness test this morning and lee can play...

hope the aussies with mcgrath and lee can get back on the english for that unjustified loss at edgebaston.....

maybe it was the best test of all time, but the wicket of kaspro was a mistake as show in slow motion camera....he pulled his thumb (where it was supposed to have nicked) just miliseconds before the ball went past it....

Go Aussie.......:j oy:

Unjustified victory? What a complete load of rubbish.

England dominated Australia for 85% of that game. Australia only won 3 sessions in that test match. Did you even watch the match? England were much and away the better side, the small margin in which they won is false in terms of how the match went in the long run.

As for Kasprowicz wasn't out - you make your own luck and England certainly made their own luck in that match. I doubt you would be going on if it was Simon Jones caught down the leg side like thatand Australia won.

So, Vaughan dropped and then bowled off a no ball.

He must go on and punish Australia now for those errors.

64.3 Gillespie to Vaughan, FOUR, fullish and outside the off, steered
past the keeper to the third-man fence
64.2 Gillespie to Vaughan, SIX, short ball outside the off, no real pace
or bounce, Vaughan picks it early and pulls with authority for six
over midwicket!

69.1 Warne to Vaughan, no run, Dropped! Vaughan goes after another one
and the edge flies to Hayden at slip and he floors it! What is
happening with Australia today?

Why don't Australia drop Gillespie? Who cares if he has 250 test wickets, he is bowling like an onion bhaji and looks past it.
