Fourth Test at Trent Bridge

Post Fourth Test at Trent Bridge
About to start tomorrow...rain foreacast, but the pitch sounding good if the reports are true.

Looks like Australia will go in with their young bowler Tait, with McGrath a late doubt.
England are on a high, so its going to be great to watch it tomorrow!

Can the aussies FINALLY show how good they are supposed to be?
Will Englands bubble burst?

Lets go!

Watched most of the last two tests on the tv, great entertainment, nail biteing stuff. Have a feeling the weather may be the deciding factor, how much time is lost due to rain, therefore will go with another draw.

It's about time somebody gave the Aussies a run for their money-it's also good for the game!

I've really enjoyed watching it this season. I still think the Aussies will retain the trophey, but would like to see it go down to the wire.

FWIW I don't like this talk of "outplayed them in the last 2 tests". FFS don't get carried away, we won the 2nd test as they chose to bowl on a batters field, and we couldn't put 'em to bed in the 2nd test (beaten by the weather, but that's not unexpected in England is it?). We have to toughen up and beat 'em.

Well put Jason, agree entirely. To be fair to the England players, I don't thing they're falling for this kind of bullsh!t, they know they have to go out there and play really well again, if they're to have a chance of winning this one.

Bizarrly this bullshit came from Ricky Ronting - either to hide his mistake in letting us bat first, or to play mind games.

I'm a bit concerned the next 2 pitches might not favour our bowling attack.
