I think we will need a 350 lead to be comfortable. 270 may well be enough but you would want a cushion.
Such a good batting wicket this, and although it will turn, I've yet to see Leach win us a match with his bowling.
Englands job here is to be no more than 2 down at lunch. Need to see off this new ball for Root who is our best chance of 100.
Big fan of Burns, hes not without his faults but against easier attacks I think he can score 100s for us. Hes shaped up well against the Aussie quicks this series.
