They couldn't could they?!
Score 546, more than any team in the history of first-class cricket?! 128 more than any team in the 132-year history of Test cricket?!
They looked pretty comfortable scoring 80 for no loss from the opening 20 overs though didn't they?
If one batsman were to score a double century and three others make significant scores...it is easy when you think of it in those terms! Time is certainly not an issue. How close do you think Australia can really get?
And what of the wicket? It doesn't seem to have deteriorated much and didn't directly lead to a batsman being dismissed on the third day.
Andrew Strauss often had only one slip in place in the closing stages of day three, preferring men in close in front of the wicket. What do you think the tactics should be against the various Australian batsmen on day four?
What bowling combinations should Strauss use? Is Graeme Swann the key factor and how do you think he will cope with the expectation? Surely the stage is set for Andrew Flintoff in his final Test? How will he fare? Can he be the hero again? Please send in all your Oval-based thoughts.
