Open Ashes Post

Australia 263 all out.  England 116-2, bad light stops play.

Day 2 of the third test sees England with a slight advantage, which could have been a strong advantage following the Australia collapse had they themselves not lost two quick wickets.  

The Bell standing in for Pieterson project begins here, and over at the Ashes Blog they compare the two, not favorably for Bell.  Strauss is looking good on 64, and England enjoyed some fine bowling from Anderson (5-80) and Onions (4-58).
This one could very well end in a draw, with weather being an issue.
UPDATE: At the end of day 3, weather is indeed an issue, with the entire day a washout.  The scoreline above remains, with two days remaining.  I suspect a draw at the end of this one.
