    Aussies win the toss and decide to bat.

    Who ever the English Captain is said he would have batted first also.

    Comments are that the Pitch looks dry.

    People are talking up Smith.

    If he gets 20-30+ in each innings and sees and frustrates Archer ... Mission accomplished

    Time for a Warner 1st innings ton

    Yes, agreed ... but neither Harris nor Labuschange was/is wearing it.

    Smith, at bat now is wearing one.

    KW ... are you watching the game?

    Gotchya.

    Currently optional under the rules.

    MCC or ICC thinking about making them mandatory after Smith's hit during the 2nd test.

    That review smacked of desperation to get Smith out.

    Wasted in my view, it was always going to be Umpire's Call at best.

    PLAY ABANDONED




    That day feels a bit like a tease - it was fascinating while it lasted but there wasn't enough play to really see who came out on top.

    The exciting news for the Aussies is Steve Smith is still at the crease, on 60 not out, and he'll be joined by Travis Head (18 not out) tomorrow.


    At 3-170 on balance it's fair to say it's Australia's day, but certainly no decisive advantage.

    As with so much of this series, everything seems to depend on Steve Smith's fortunes again.

    Umpires call means you don't lose a review. A bit unlucky to be given out. You only lose reviews when it's clear cut.

    200 from modern day Bradman would be good. Even pain in the butt can't lose it from there.

    The sun is out ...

    Rare thing for the Poms to witness and got a bit carried away ...





    There has been some experimenting with the helmets ...



    12 degrees and sunny.

    Light to moderate winds so hopefully the bails stay on and we get a full days play in.
