Keep up with us, while we predict all the matches of Ashes series. One can't help thinking he's still itching to get the ball through midwicket, but if he can resist, he'll be a real asset to this still fragile batting order. I think the earliest play can finish is 1800, although I'm not certain so let's change the subj- I just love what you've done with those curtains. 1000 Good morning. The chaps on Sky have just informed us that only three sides in Test history have won chasing over 200 at more than five an over - and only one of those three was against the clock, when the fielding side could bowl wide and put as many men as they liked on the boundary. Preferred starting line-up at Brisbane (assuming Bres doesn't make it): Cook, Root, Trott, KP, Bell, Ballance, Prior, D.Willey, Stubro, Swann, Jimmy. "If England go for the win here it will make for a magnificent spectacle. It was a bit like, that famous Alec Stewart catch to dismiss Brian Lara in 1995. : Haddin didn't have to dive quite as far, but then unlike Stewart he was going the wrong way. I'm not sure England would try to chase even that, never mind, say, 190, from 45. "Matt Prior: "I'm gonna have a beer mate.". We are now at the stage where England should win this match, a quite absurd scenario given the state of play this morning. A few of the England players are chatting to Sky's Ian Ward. Maybe you just have a pre-series shootout between Bairstow and Taylor, or whoever they pick. "I can’t agree that the risk of losing is greater than the chance of winning. It was a simple enough dismissal: he tried to drive a fullish outswinger and edged it straight to second slip. Rating: 5. Quite why it has taken five Tests to address so obvious a flaw is unclear, but at least he has done so, and the long, long apprenticeship may, at last, be over. Aleem Dar tells him to do one. (It's almost impossible, as we said earlier, to function as a collective in one match.). That’s the beauty of Ashes. <noframe>Twitter: James Taylor - You've just got to love swannys batting!! OVER 21: AUS 91-6 (lead by 206; Clarke 18* Starc 3*) Starc misses a couple of haymakers at short deliveries from Broad and then survives a big run-out chance. Not that this invalidates the bitching and moaning; quite the contrary. It's been a well judged innings: breezy at first and then a supporting role once Pietersen arrived. That speaks of flawed technique, not just a run of bad luck and he might be spending a lot of time on the bowling machine before Brisbane. There may be much to be said for taking a more aggressive approach, but playing against type isn't easy – especially with plenty else to think about – and the strain may have shown in his missing a good one to be bowled (again) in the first dig. "Can you or one of the armchair experts PLEASE explain to me why we shouldn't have a go at this? Root surivves a biggish shout for LBW from Harris; again it looked too high. Apparently the law has changed since the flippin' murder of 1996. Chris Woakes – A pleasing action with good rhythm got the ball to the other end more quickly than many had thought possible. Simon Kerrigan – Maybe he was as surprised as everyone else by his shock inclusion, but he should not have been surprised to see Shane Watson looking to hit him off a length. Photograph: Stefan Wermuth/Reuters. England need 111 from 108 balls. Cook whipped around a straight one and was plumb LBW. He lured Alastair Cook into another prod outside off-stump first time round and stopped KP from winning the match second time round. <a href="http://search.twitter.com/search?q=ashes" target="_blank">#ashes</a><a href="http://search.twitter.com/search?q=rise" target="_blank">#rise</a></noframe> 1005 What would be your composite XI from this series?

OVER 19: ENG 86/1 (Cook 34* Trott 40*) A quiet over from Lyon, just one from it. Just three singles from the over, including a slice from Pietersen that feel not far short of Siddle at deep cover. OVER 142: ENG 376/9 (Swann 34* Kerrigan 0*) Swann inside-edges an increasingly exasperated Siddle for four and pulls the next ball witheringly to the fence. You can ignore the entry for Over 10. Could they be suckered into an unrealistic chase? He's got that brusque strut on, Prior, which is usually a sign he's in the mood for runs. Glad I've not paid - urn aloft or no.". Mind you, I will sleep soundly knowing England have had an excellent 3-0 win! Mitchell Starc is the new batsman. He ends the series with 277 runs at 27.70. Maybe England are going for these runs.

He will relish the ball coming on to the bat – as it surely will in Brisbane in just three months' time (where he will bring up a century of Tests). OVER 7: AUS 31/0 (Warner 11* Watson 19*) Think of a number. He will go back to Sussex now and prepare for Brisbane in November. He might be the last of dying breed; he even looks like that. Actually he didn't even throw at the wicket; he instinctively lobbed it over the stumps, which would have been fine if Matt Prior was there. Tea: Australia 111-6 (lead by 226) See you in a few minutes for the final session of the 2013 Ashes. Nothing personal; just business. OVER 1: AUS 4/0 (Warner 4* Watson 0*) David Warner pushes James Anderson's first ball breezily through extra cover for four, a let's-get-down-to-business stroke if ever there was one. Michael Clarke has a word with the umpire, and now the fourth umpire is ready at the boundary edge with the light meter. Peter Siddle – He demanded respect with a lovely line and length that pulled batsmen forward but was never quite there to drive. Life, as John Lennon didn't quite say, is what happens while you're busy collecting regrets. That's fair enough; the phony war for the next Ashes has already started. That top six doesn't look too hot. See you next week for the return series in Australia. I suppose it's all down to personal preference.

The substitute Jason Roy's throw missed the stumps. Kevin Pietersen – The reticence of his celebration of his first innings 50 (and the contrast with the skunk-haired jubilation of his 150 eight years ago) said much about his opinion of the pitch and his inability to get going. In the long run, those 32 missing runs may help him, as he still has some technical issues to work out and can expect another forensic examination in the winter from the magnificent Ryan Harris. Home » The Ashes 2013 5th Test. That's an interesting move. Is it enough to retain his place for the return series when, back home, his steadying hand on the tiller may not be so necessary?
