I'll write more about the Melbourne Test on what should have been either Day Four or Day Five, but for now here are my votes for Day Three of the Melbourne Test, ie, the day that Australia thwacked England by an innings.

Three points: Brett Lee; two points: Shane Warne; one point: Stuart Clark.

With one Test remaining, we have a clear leader. No prizes for guessing who...

13: Shane Warne;
10: Ricky Ponting;
9: Paul Collingwood;
8: Stuart Clark;
7: Michael Hussey, Glenn McGrath, Kevin Pietersen;
6: Ian Bell, Matthew Hoggard;
5: Matthew Hayden;
4: Michael Clarke, Adam Gilchrist, Brett Lee;
3: Alastair Cook, Monty Panesar;
2: Andrew Flintoff, Justin Langer, Andrew Strauss, Andrew Symonds;
1: Steve Harmison.

On zero after four Tests:
Australia - Damien Martyn;
England - James Anderson, Ashley Giles, Geraint Jones, Sajid Mahmood, Chris Read.

Theoretically, anyone could come from the bottom to win, if they picked up three points on all five days at Sydney, if indeed there are five...
