I've never been one to look too far ahead since I came back into the England side and I'm not going to change that view.

What is unusual is them talking about making changes - which I think shows which side is dominant.

I think England have matched them on a competitive level. I think Australia know that now, and the closer it gets that Australia can lose the Ashes, the more it will play on their minds.

I think England can go into the fourth Test buoyed by their performances already and are in a situation now where they have Australia on the rack, ... England can go on and win both matches.

This side has probably got a good four or five years, but Australia don't have that. This Australia side is the best they can put on the park, and they are at their peak.

The way to do it is enjoy our cricket and relax, to accept that occasionally you'll have a bad day and try to get out of bed with a smile on your face.

I view every game I play for England as it could be my last, so I go out there and enjoy it. It's the only way I can approach it.

Last chance. Basically, last chance.

I think we have to try to be as annoying as we can, and take points off Australia to give ourselves an opportunity of the big prize at the end of it.
