5 talking points from the 3rd Ashes Test

This Ashes series has been swinging from one end to the other like a pendulum. England won one, when no one gave them a chance and won it well. Australia then pulled one back and thumped England when the momentum was going the other way. England then came back from looking down and out and losing by more than 400 runs to beat Australia again. Such have been the times that if you are an English fan, you will dread the fourth Test, because th
