    You think that AUSTRALIA can WIN? :? :? :? :?

    No side has scored over 700 and has lost...ever

    WHy dont you put your money where your mouth is - I think it is a draw, and if the test is a draw, I win and then you got to give me the same admin rights that Kevin has on this BB, so that I can kickout a particular poster that I detest and loathe

    you said money, not admin powers.

    well the way they are getting smashed yah, its possible. Im hearing fours every 3 balls bowled.

    Therre have been 1679 tests played in history, and here is the test history results as of today. They have been ordered by win/loss percentage, so that we can seew who the "winningest" cricket nation is

    Australia: 647 tests - 290 wins, 175 losses, 180 draws, 2 ties for 62% win
    WestIndies: 403 tests - 147 wins, 117 losses, 138 draws, 1 tie for 55% win
    Pakistan: 299 tests - 92 wins, 74 losses, 133 draws for 55% win
    England: 816 tests - 277 wins, 239 losses, 300 draws for 53% win
    South Africa: 283 tests - 92 wins, 101 losses, 90 draws for 47% win
    Sri Lanka: 136 tests - 33 wins, 52 losses, 51 draws for 38% win
    India: 370 tests - 75 wins, 123 losses, 171 draws, 1 tie for 37% win
    New Zealand: 307 tests - 53 wins, 120 losses, 134 draws for 30% win
    Zimbabwe: 71 tests - 7 wins, 40 losses, 24 draws for 14% win
    Bangladesh: 26 tests - 0 wins, 25 losses, 1 draw for 0% win

    Only 4 nations have a positive score. Am surprised at India's and Sri Lanka's poor record though, as I thought they may have been in the high 40%s. Bangaldesh is a disgrace, and should never have been admitted to test status until they were a little bit more competitive

    see, I told you we cannot win, and in fact the best we can hope for is a draw. Kumble will be even harder to face in the last day

    Actually there are still alot of batsmen to come, that are quite capable of doing the job.

    teh difference between a tie and a draw...hmmm

    A tie like a draw ends with both teams sharing the honours, with no losers and winners. However a tie is a result that is decided on the field, while a draw is inconclusive can can be caused by other outside factors such as rain

    hmmm..sounds confusing

    maybe someone can articulate it better

    So a draw occurs from natural forces such as rain etc?

    Draw is basically a no result. Neither side dismissed in 2 innings inside the time allowed for the game.

    A tie is a rare beast, both sides dismissed in both innings and scores level. (Theoretically it is also possible to draw if there are no more balls to bowl and scores are tied, but no ties have been recorded that way.)

    There has only been 2 ties.

    Australia v West Indies, Brisbane 1960. This match was described in good detail in the ABC documentary Carribean Summer.

    Australia v India, Chennai 1986. In that match Australia batted first and Boon and Border made centuries and Dean Jones made 210. The Aussies finished 574/7d. After his innings Dean Jones was treated in hospital for exhaustion. India came back with 397 all out. Australia went back in and made 170/5d (run rate of around 3.4 which wouldhave been considered "whirlwind" ni that era). That set India the total of 348 to win. India were all out 347. Gaviskar made 90 but the real hero was Ravi Shastri who finished 48 not out. That is what India would describe as a "moral victory".

    Rain often leads to a draw as it can reduce the playing time available for the game. However, rain in not necessary. Very good batting by both sides will also generally lead to a draw without rain.

    hopw waugh gets in today, as otherwise I will not see him as have to work tomorrow.

    Sun Hearald carried stories on how a lot of spectators were upsetthat they did not get to watch Steve, as they only bought tickets for 2 days. Some had even booked group tours and come from the country - but all they got to see was Steve looking frustrated as Sachin and Laxman hammered us
