Not much chance of us winning but we could definitely get a draw. Smith and Wade need to bat well!

A scan has cleared Steve Smith of a fracture to his arm at the end of a chaotic day that has set up a mouth-watering finale to the second Ashes Test at Lord’s.
While five sessions of the match have been lost to rain, it is still on a knife edge, with England having been reduced to 4-96 in their second innings late on Saturday, a lead of 104.

While Smith was sent to hospital for a scan, Cummins was on a hat-trick after removing Jason Roy and Joe Root in consecutive balls as England slumped to 2-9 and while an excellent Siddle then took care of Rory Burns caught behind for 29 and Joe Denly, caught and bowled, for 26, there were glaring missed opportunities for Australia.

Smith got the wrong end of the stick in his scoring 92.
Surely the Poms aren't resort to bodyline on him?.
Good to see our bowlers working on that draw

We'll be right.
Smith has woken up grubby and not well at all after yesterday’ bad hit to his neck, they’re watching him very closely.

Geez I hope he’s gonna be ok!

The next test is on Thursday, I have a feeling he may not play @RADICAL RABBIT, Labuschagne would come in.

This is what the Poms did against Sir Donald Bradman.

Anyway, it looks like this second test is going to be a draw.
Not yet, England lead by 165 with 67 overs left.

They could bat another 20 overs and get the lead up to 230-240 and then have 45 overs at us.

Even if England don’t win if they get us 5 or 6 down they could mentally scar heading into the third test later this week.
