3/42 so far, and 138 overs to deal with the remaining seven.
0/99 and 0/38 - the Aussie batsmen have completely neutered James 'Punchy' Anderson this time. This is big, Anderson carries the attack so if he's firing blanks England will struggle to take 20 wickets, let alone do so while also preventing Australia from batting them out of contention for a win.
It's been a great Test debut for Peter Nevill so far. 45 runs with the bat in his only innings, 5 catches so far and just 12 byes conceded on a ground that's infamously hard for wicketkeepers (Jos Buttler conceded 26 byes in one Test innings at Lord's against the sheep shaggers a couple of months ago). I hate to say this when Haddin is out for family reasons rather than due to selection, but he should probably be given just one more farewell match before handing over the reigns to Nevill for Tests and Ludeman for ODI/T20 matches.
It's been a huge weekend for Australian sport with Hewitt anchoring the Davis Cup team, Mick Fanning punching a shark, Adelaide and Port honouring Phil Walsh. A Test win inside four days would be a great way to finish it off!
There will be something radically wrong if Australia lose this test! A draw would only seem possible if rain intervenes...
Australia has set 500+ targets 27 times before in Tests, for 26 wins and just one draw.
