Pretty sure that ump is a Pom. Looked a very biased decision to me, and the commentators have been fairly biased as well. I suppose they have to talk their team up because they are being totally outplayed by a superior team.
I’d love to see the Aussies win the series 16-0.
Forecast looks ok for the next couple days so those two abandoned sessions probably only stamped out a loss for Australia if anything (if it wasn't already stamped out). Certainly still a decent chance to win, especially if England's batting isn't heaps better than what they dished up in the one-dayers. Think I'd let the first hour pass until declaring, get some quick runs and a feel for how the pitch is holding up.
