The Ashes: 3rd Test Day 5 … Rain, Ryno and the Urn

Well the inevitable happened over night: it rained all but for 90 minutes of play on Day 5 of the 3rd test and a draw ended up being the result of a match that Australia, by any measure, dominated.

The 90 minute burst from Australia that saw 3 wickets fall and a dropped catch from the captain, served a significant purpose in the sense that Ryan Harris, if he needed to, solidified his standing as Australia’s premier bowler. His spell was 7 overs of pure joy for members of the fast bowlers cartel and fans alike and all eyes will now be on how his knee pulls up given that the 4th test commences in 3 days time.

So, that is that, the English retain the Urn as the best available result for Australia is that the series is drawn. Attention now turns to the Chester-le-Street ground in Durham for the 4th test starting on Friday.
