All set for Gabba finale
Most of Brisbane is back at work on Monday, and England’s fans are not yet Adelaide-bound.
The ground will be far from full, but with tickets just $20 each (£8) and $6 for children, ground organisers are expecting a strong presence from the away supporters.
In fact I spoke to Stephen Gray, who as media manager at the Gabba has done a terrific job dealing with us all, and asked whether England fans would be in the majority.
He suggested it was, indeed, highly possible.
As for the weather, I heard a whisper that there had been a shower overnight south of the Brisbane River (where the ground is).
But it must have been brief and localised, because the city’s green spaces still look bone dry.
There are some clouds around, but not rain-bearing ones.
Going back to the Gabba for the seventh day on the trot feels a bit like taking a trip to the office.
But it’s certainly a more pleasant commute than the usual one!
Will England get as far as lunch? Perhaps, but we must be braced for the inevitable now, I’m afraid.
