England's future stands up
Yesterday Broad cut the heart out of Australia, today Trott banged a big nail in the coffin. Despite a show of guts from Watson and Katich at the start of Australia's second innings, surely the tourists are done. So barring a miracle, Strauss should be lifting the urn sometime late tomorrow or early Monday morning. Fred went out in typical big-hitting fashion, but he's been pretty anonymous in his final test. Interesting that it's been England's new generation making all the headlines - Trott, Broad and Swann. Long may it continue.
