England very likely winners of this test unless Mitch Johnson rediscovers his best form with the ball
Ah yes, unless...........

Johnson hit some form again didn't he, seemed to be the only one to get the ball to swing (well, I saw the odd England delivery swing away down leg side, only to be swiftly clipped away for four ). Nice to see Australia recovering a bit.
Stumps day 2
What a transformation
Australia were 5/69 on day 1, and from that point have almost dominated this Test match
Most of my investments on England are down the gurgler,
One player, Mitch Johnson has reserected this Test match for the Aussies
A blazing 62 followed up by 6/38 in one of the alltime greatest one man demolition efforts seen in Test Cricket
I had always thought this deck would suit the Aussies, but still had my hard earnt on England
Australia lead by 200 runs, and heavily favoured to win this Test
Odds compliments of Paddy Power
I think about a par lead would be about 325 , anymore makes it in Australias favour
With 3 days to go a result is very likley
If the pitch continues to assist the bowlers, it could be a 4 day Test match
It's bonkers isn't it how the selectors nearly dropped Hussey and actually did drop Johnson?! Not sure what happened in his downtime (he got rid of the 'tache!) but Johnson seemed to be much improved after the rest. Hussey has just looked impressive all the way through so far.
