Ashes 2009- England tottering – Australia assured

The 4th fourth Ashes Test at Headingly appears heading for a 3rd day finish.
Attempting to overhaul a 343 runs lead, England lost their way yet again and is tottering at 82/5. This effectively means that England has surrendered the advantage of the win at Lord’s.

Mitchell Johnson was instrumental in the dramatic reversal of England’s fortunes. The 3 wickets he took in a remarkable 8 over spell he shared with Ben Hilfenhaus (who took 2 wickets), knocked the stuffing out of the English batting line up. 
England has to score another 261 runs merely to make Australia bat again. With another 3 days in the Test left, an Australian win appears a mere formality.

THE MATCH WILL BE OVER BY LUNCH.
CURIOUSLY THIS TEST MATCH IS WITNESSED BY A NEAR FULL STADIUM WHEREAS THE ODIS BET PAKISTAN AND SRILANKA HAS A SPARSE CROWD.

Lviss,

It may be due to Pakistan's lackluster performance.
