Stokes is making very difficult not to admire him as a cricketer by walking. Even if he knew he'd be out if we reviewed, there was every chance we wouldn't.

Draw here would make a very one sided series amazingly still alive. Hard to believe.
Reminds me of our last tour in India. England will probably pull an amazing performance in the last test to win back the Ashes despite being outplayed almost all tour.

What a test match hey? Down to the last hour. England was brave, but it would have been criminal if they won a draw.

Australia's bowling attack is exceptional. Cummins may be the best fast bowler in the world for mine.

I'm very happy for Paine. Captained very well today. And really he has done exceptionally well since taking over.

JL and Paine have me properly enjoying the national side again for the first time in years. Very proud of this team.

CRICKET IS COMING HOME, BAYBAAAAYYYYYYYYYYYYYY!!!

That was incredible, and hopefully we can win/draw the final test to cement an away Ashes win.

Surely knighthoods are in line for Smith, Labowlingshane and Cummins. Weirdly enough losing Smith for the third test is the best thing that could have happened to us, because it gave Marnus the chance he needed to step up and now we’ve got the dream team.
