Into the bowlers now, we have a chance...slim though it may be...cricinfo said:
Lyon to Rudolph, OUT, lbw! Asad Rauf takes an age to raise his finger, but Rudolph has reviewed the decision. Lyon pitches outside off and angles the ball into the left-hander, Rudolph comes forward to defend but plays outside the line of the ball and is hit on the back pad. That hit the pad just in line and would have gone on to hit the sumps. That will stay out. Rudolph has to go
JA Rudolph lbw b Lyon 11 (36b 0x4 0x6) SR: 30.55

Hmmm, thought that wasn't how it was meant to finish (the number of overs to bowl to them). NM is correct, they have agreed that a result would not be possible in the next 30 mins and normal stumps have been drawn.4.55 pm The Test has come to an end. Clarke has agreed to call it off with 11 overs remaining. It's been drawn and you'd have to say Australia had the better of it ever since the second day was washed out completely.
Yep. Of course the big problem there was losing the second day, a Saturday, where the crowd probably would have normally been at its peak for the match ... and after that the draw was the most likely result.Pity the crowd was only 50k for the match, might have to pencil in next years dates to see if I can contribute to an improvement.
