Headingley Test critical for both teams

After the third Ashes Test was drawn at Edgbaston, the fourth Test at Headingly has now become very critical with Australia needing to avoid a loss to stay in the hunt.

An England win would hand over the Ashes to the home team because that will mean a 2-nil lead at that stage but a draw wouldn't be that bad either for England.

For Australia I think this is a must win Test even though a draw could be good enough but that would require winning the last Test.

I think the rain helped make sure that the third Test was a draw with really noone having an upper hand.

While the tourists had a poor first innings, I think Michael Clarke helped Australia to a commendable second innings with his century and that should help going into the fourth Test.

Whilst England talked about victory the moment they bowled Australia out for 263, I think they didn't manage to get a good enough lead in their own innings.

I wonder what would have happened had one day not been lost to rain altogether.

Lets hope we see most of the action in the fourth Test and less of the covers.
