Ashes update

Two of the Ashes Test Series are complete with Australia up 2-0. Australia won the first test by 277 runs in a blowout. They struggled the first four days of the second test as a draw appeared imminent but had an historic fifth day to win by six wickets. You can read about the exciting fifth day in this Sydney Morning Herald article.
The third test began today, but Perth is proving to be a bowler's pitch. Australia batted first and is already all out for 244 runs. England was 2/51 at the close of play today. Test two looked like it wouldn't be completed on time until the stunning ending, but the third test is looking like it might wrap up early. But who will finish on top?
