I hope not LOL. I dont care how uncompetitive it makes it. I just want us to bury these blokes.
I would have liked a more competitive series tbh, it's been a bit disappointing as a spectacle.

In saying that, I hope we bury them now the series is decided.

Despite our dominance I still can’t see a result in this Test especially with the weather forecast.

Bairstow playing the best innings from an Englishman so far this series. He tore into Lyon especially.

Rain for the next two days, this is starting to have draw written all over it.

For the first few hours the forecast is ok, might get through to lunch without any stoppages. So far the forecasted rain has mainly been out west and in sweeping patterns that for the majority of the time have missed the SCG.

Despite what is forecasted today we may still get plenty of cricket in.

Aussies have to get these last three wickets pretty quickly and then build a lead. Still some twists and turns to come.

And someone else has said he’s now past Steve Smith for the series.

To be fair, it has been a lean series for Smith.

How accurate is the weather app on your phone? Despite the sunshine and blue skies and hardly any rain on the radar, it still insists we’re going to have thunderstorms every hour from now into the evening.

The forecast was one of the reasons I chose not to go to the Test. I didn’t fancy sitting there for 8 hours and just watch it rain all day.

So happy for Uzi. Good on him.

Also very valuable runs for Cam Green, he’s had a few recent failures so its good he got himself back on track. Alex Carey needs to be careful though, his batting has been horribly inconsistent and he’s got Inglis breathing down his neck.

Smith and Warner have both had a lean couple of at bats, not at the point where I’m worried but they haven’t been good. Also Mark Wood has found a hole in Marnus’s game that he needs to address ASAP.
