    Nathan Lyon joins Warne, McGrath and Lillee as Australians with 350 Test wickets, and no-one has taken more wickets than him in Tests since his debut.

    Invr3d8ble come back by Australia after appearing in trouble at 8 for 120 odd in the first innings. Smith was incredibly good and England lost by over 250. Amazing!

    Silly game, anyway.
    There is no cure for leftism. Its infestation of the host mostly diminishes with age except in the most rabid of specimens.

    It's in the book, but should have won by 1 run:

    Lyon to Stokes, no run, goes for the slog-sweep, hit on the pads, Wilson shakes his head! Lyon can't believe it, Australia have no reviews! That looked a pretty good shout, pitching on middle and leg. Did it straighten enough?

    Would have been overturned on DRS! Hitting middle and leg stump according to Hawk-Eye. Poor decision, you have to say, but Australia had wasted their last review in the previous over

    Also in this one it's unclear if the final wicket was actually correctly given out:

    1 run v WI, Ade, 1993

    NZ beat Sri Lanka by an innings plus to share the test series 1-1.
