Why is that, mate ?

There are more results in Tests, over recent years, than ever before.

For now, though, let me say that draws are not a problem: they are a natural (and important) part of the game. It's the contents of the game, not the end result, that are the problem.

Another day's bating just like that and Australia will have that 300 run lead and can push for victory.
