Ashes in the Balance

Tim Blair:

Excuse me while I undergo cardiac arrest. (Thumps chest.)

England need 10 runs, with 3 wickets in hand, to win the Test.

Cricinfo commentator:

Every game in this Ashes series has been better than the previous one. What an unbelievable series it has been so far.


England need 8 runs to win. Their score 121/7.

Update II
Lee is sending down thunderbolts. Hoggard is being sensibly cautious. The 4th ball is hit for a 4. Whoa! 2 off the last ball. 2 more runs needed. It's all over. Unless Warne produces the greatest over of his life.

Update III
The Great Blondie is bowling his heart out. He has sent down 4 dot balls. Oooh, the fifth ball is hit for the win! England leads 2-1 in the Ashes series.

Everything will be on the line for Australia in the final Test match.
