Day 2 of the 3rd test at the WACA in Perth, Western Australia.... They are 3 hours behind us here in Victoria... We get to sit down with a couple of beers in the evening and watch a good game til 9pm .... love it !

2 tons for your boys and a bloody good score 403... Could have been a lot better had they not had massive collapse at the end... We are a couple hundred behind for 3 wickets at the end of the days play....
Make or break tomorrow... for either side...

Day 4 ... And you must've sent some your weather down to Perth... Days play finished early.... And they are expecting more tomorrow...
We batted well and declared 250 ahead...
England is 4 wickets down and still nowhere near our score to make us bat again.
Possible draw looms...

Pitch copped a bit of moisture from storms overnight .. Ground staff were out on it with blowers to help dry it... Umpires then deemed it ok to play... The rest as they say.... is history. The Ashes are ours !

On to the next... Melbourne on Boxing Day.... which is already sold out !

When he is going, he is great to watch Dave. He batted the way the Aussie batsmen should've... and to bat through the innings and not out !
It's 2pm and they have gone off for a sprinkle of rain. Warner and Smith aren't batting aggressively at present. Still 70-odd shy of Englands total

A draw avoided the white wash. I was not happy with the ball tampering accusations?

Agree Dave... ridiculous !
But I reckon the rain saved us...
The pitch was 'dead' ... Gave nothing to bowlers and wasn't super good for batting... that shows how good your quickies were.
On to Thursday for the Sydney Test. This is normally a 'turner' ... We have brought in Agar to bolster the spinning ranks.. hope he gets a game.

Nice and hot up in Sydney today Dave... and expecting even hotter tomorrow.... might be when the Aussies are bowling....
Scorcher down in Geelong today 42deg C .. So glad I don't play cricket anymore !! Although In the lower grades if it gets over a certain temp they call the game off... thank goodness.

It will be hard going for your boys Dave. 4 wickets down for 90-odd chasing the Aussies 300-odd lead (and that's just to make us bat again). Get one of these two out and it's curtains...... Joe Root is batting with a possible broken finger... If it's where I broke mine.. ouch !!!

Looks like he is back at the SCG today and no doubt will bat if required. And his finger is "only sore"
