ASHES: The Mancunian mystery tour

An enthralling third day leaves England still 34 runs short of avoiding a follow-on with 3 wickets in hand.

Old Trafford, Manchester, England — Australia’s fate this summer is to be decided in Manchester where the third Ashes Test is unfolding like a mystery story. There is no shortage of clues, but still not enough to indicate how it will end. Australia are favourites; England look beaten but refuse to submit. But this is Manchester. It has not rained so far, but is forecast to tomorrow and Monday.  If it does, a draw might provide the story with an anti-climax.
