I went to bed last night with Australia struggling on 88-5.
The first thing I heard this morning was the Boycott and Aggers end-of-day conversation.
It took some time for them to reveal the score to me, but when I heard Boycs talking about Symonds and a century, I knew things weren't going to be great.
I tried to be optimistic - maybe the lead is only 100-150 if we've managed to keep taking wickets at the other end, I thought, then the duo discussed Hayden's 150+ knock.
And then that the score was 372-7 - a lead of 213.
I can't repeat here the words that sprang forth from my mouth - how the devil had England managed to let this one slip away?
The ball was seaming and swinging all over the place before lunch, and with Symonds not averaging many and Hayden playing slower than Chris Tavare in his prime there was no way Australia should have been allowed to build up such a score.
Okay there were a few decisions that went against England, but even so...
...so what next for England? Matthew Hoggard summed it up nicely on Five Live this morning: "We need to take a couple of wickets early on and then bat all day," was his deadpan response to Mark Pougatch's query.
Hoggy's right, but I can't see the second part of that happening, can you?
