How long will it last ... the series that is?

What can I add to the Cricinfo summary scorecard?
Australia 602/9d
England 53/3 (17.0 ov)
England trail by 549 runs with 7 wickets remaining in the 1st innings

Stumps - Day 2


England RR 3.11
Last 10 ovs 25/1 RR 2.50

The full scorecard is here.

I hadn't gone on record with a prediction, though if I had I'd have put the series result much closer than now seems likely.
The England bowling is being carried by Andrew Flintoff, with intermittent support from Matthew Hoggard and Ashley Giles, and an occasional good ball from the others. Today most of the team played like New Zealanders.
