Ashes to ashes (slight return)

Australia have annihilated England in their second innings with three players getting a hundred as they turned on the accelerators and declared on 527-5, a lead of 556. Adam Gilchrist hit the second-fastest ton of all time, in just 57 balls (just behind Viv Richards record set in 1986, also against England). So England were sent in to bat in the fading light and immediately lost Strauss, out to yet another dodgey Koertzen call (that's three now, somebody check his passport). So 19-1 at the close and still two days left to bat out for the draw (or if like me you are the eternal optimist, England require just 538 more runs to win off a minimum of 180 overs, at a shade under 3 an over :)

And while all this was happening, I went for a fantastic Indian buffet at the Dubai Marina *burp*. Sorry.
