Well, written off a week ago, England have come up on the rails to take second place thanks to a super allround performance from Paul Collingwood. And so we all head to the MCG on Friday as this series nears a close. Bob Dylan has been on his Never-Ending Tour since 1994. It seems as if the CB Series kicked off around the same time.

Join us at 2.15pm (0315GMT) on Friday for more fun frolics and positively no Mexican waves.

Mahmood to Franklin, no run, beaten outside off stump, a loud appeal from Mahmood and Nixon but it's immaterial, the game is over and England will meet Australia in the best-of-three final

Mahmood to Bond, 1 run, full toss, swatted into space

Mahmood to Bond, no run, again Bond heads towards square leg and his attempted drive is missed and the ball passes between bat and leg stump

Mahmood to Bond, 2 runs, clubbed through the covers for another two

Vaughan flexing his left leg ... it's the thought of two more matches against Australia

Mahmood to Franklin, 1 run, straight ball, a big swing edged into his body and another one

Mahmood to Bond, 1 bye, Bond moves a yard to leg, Mahmood follows him ("No, it was just a rubbish ball," claims Miller) and they run a bye as Nixon makes a tumbling stop
