We shift to cricket now, and the third test in the Ashes is set for Thursday at Old Trafford in Manchester. England captured the first two contests, and did so in differing styles --a nailbiting opener, and then an absolute slaughter in the second test. As a result, the host are a win away from downing Australia and capturing the Ashes for the third straight time. Despite the mammoth task ahead of them.Aussie opener Chris Rogers says the mood within the squad remains positive as they prepare to fight for their Ashes life.
"Yeah, look it is pretty good. Ideally you like to win matches but we know this is a big challenge and it is a bit of a journey as well so...a lot of guys who are still kind of developing I guess and there is a long way to go. I think with Darren (Lehman) at the helm and Michael Clarke, who has been excellent as well - the mood is still good and positive and we win this game and things change quickly." said Australia Opener Chris Rogers.
"Yes it has gone well for us so far. We are very conscious of not getting too ahead of ourselves and we have played well over the last two games but now we have to concentrate on winning this game and not looking too far ahead."said England Fast Bowler Jimmy Anderson.
