London: Jul 20, 2013

Despite losing three wickets early in their innings, England will begin day three with a comfortable lead of 264 runs in the second Ashes Test at lord’s on Saturday.

The only hope for Australia lies in the fact that they still have the resources to bowl England out on a low score and chase a target which is reasonably in their reach. On second day, nothing seems to fall in place for the visitors as they were bowled out for a paltry 128 handing a lead of 233 runs. England though chose to continue piling on a lead and put pressure on Australia.

According the present situation it’s highly unlikely that Australia can script a sensational comeback but cricket has its own share of uncertainties every now and then.
