Close of play on day two.
Australia lead by 314 runs.
England have a mountain to climb (although it's not impossible).
A week from now the wife and I will be flying into Blighty for our summer hols.
Last year Ms Random Doubt got into the cricket on the TV, she was quietly fascinated.
This year she may well learn more as we are doing a countryside retreat/house swop and have already planned our days of doing nothing but watching the tests and eating proper bacon and drinking too much (yeah!)
I have told her that it takes a lifetime to understand it and there is no hurry.
I have also promised her that we will ride our bikes into nearby villages and watch village games from pub benches before wobbling home.
We will also see friends and family and abandon our normally semi healthy lifestyle.
I cannot wait.
