Hey, there's a Killarney near Brisbane.

Doesn't look a bit like the real thing, I'll wager.

Lunch on day 3. We lost 2 wickets, but the lead has edged over 300.

Declaration when the lead reaches 450?

4 down now. Warner made his century, but Smith out for a duck. Lead over 400...

5 down at tea, Clarke out for 113, lead of 454. I suspect that there will be a declaration half way through the next session, to allow Johnson to unleash a barrage at the English openers before stumps...
