Despite the holder of the Ashes already being settled for six more months after a washed out draw at Old Trafford kept the urn with England, Australia still have much to prove.
Following a close opening Test at Trent Bridge and then a mauling by the Three Lions at Lord’s, the tourists had the better of the third encounter and had it not been for heavy rain on day five would have probably won the match.
At least the Aussies have avoided the 5-0 whitewash many confident English fans were banding about and if the away side can perform as they did in Manchester, Michael Clarke’s team could feasibly win the remaining two ties.
Aside from the rain the controversial DRS system stole the headlines from the Old Trafford game, with poor decisions and seemingly failed technology completely undermining the match.
Since the Test finished there have been rumblings of cheating going on in the England camp and fingers have been pointed at batsman Kevin Pietersen – claims that the 32-year-old has angrily denied.
The whole shambles is likely to add a little more bite to what is already a fierce rivalry between these two nations and any supporters who may have worried the two teams were getting too chummy, can allay those fears now as captains Clarke and Alastair Cook will be going all out for a win.
