Australia closed in on victory - and moved ever closer to a 2-0 series lead - on day four as England improved on their dire first innings display without escaping from a perilous position. At stumps they still required an unlikely 284 runs to win, having reached 247-6.
As ever, our pundits are on hand to share their views and reflections on all the action and discuss the biggest talking points - on and off the field!
With five former England captains in the commentary box - Nasser Hussain, Andrew Strauss, Mike Atherton, Sir Ian Botham and David Gower - not to mention the enigma that is Bumble, there'll be plenty of chat to catch up on and no doubt one or two spicy moments!
On today's podcast...
Mike Atherton and David 'Bumble' Lloyd team up to discuss England's plight and assess the form of some of the tourists' senior batsmen.
Former England skipper Atherton remains 'worried' about Alastair Cook's form and those concerns weren't eased about the captain's shot selection today.
Meanwhile Bumble has been keeping a close eye on Kevin Pietersen's battle with Peter Siddle and reckons he knows why the Australian has got KP's number.
