Sydney Day Four - Prediction end of series 2.18

Day 2 England didn’t bat at all badly today, and at 4-234 have already made their second highest first innings score of the series. Wicket pretty good, should be aiming for 400 plus, especially with no Hoggard. Less than 350 and the 5-0 starts to ominise itself, weather pending.

Much will depend on how Collingwood and Flintoff fare against the new bunger, and whether Chris Read shows the same resilience with the bat as in the second dig at Melbourne.

Day 3 Not yet seen Tuffers starting to roll up the post-coital gasper.... bit of rsp, Australia 184 for 4.

Sticking with the same prediction tomorrow but the blue baggies this time.

Day 4 Unless the extraordinary occurs, the end is inevitable, just the timing seems in question 2.18 in the afternoon.
