Bark: 158

Splendid ball from McGrath to finally get rid of Pieterson. At 308-8, the game's beyond Australia now, and there are bound to be a few fireworks now as we get into the England tail, as England are making Australia get them out the hard way - they're not going to declare and stick Australia in. Giles is playing beautifully too, and deserves to hang in there for a 50, assuming Hoggy and Harmison don't get bounced off the wicket.

Well done, England. Bringing the Ashes home for the first time in 18 years. The front pages of the papers tomorrow should be interesting. It's just a shame that now cricket's got such a head of steam behind it with the public that it's going to disappear off terrestrial television onto Sky for the next few years... It could be a long time until we see cricket as good as this on TV again.
