DREAM OF WINNING ASHES COMES TRUE FOR ENGLAND THIS TIME?

I wonder what are the thoughts going on in the mind of Ricky Ponting. He issued statement before the second test match that Australia will be stronger in this test  and he was right till the time of toss. He won the toss elected to bat but after that nightmare continues for Australia as they were 156 for 5 at tea. Hussey again trying to save the face for Australia and I feel kind of form he is in he will certainly save the face for Kangaroos but he need support from other end and if he gets that from Brad Haddin and tail then certainly Australia can make a come-back but at the moment England is on top and enjoying the success.
This time Englishmen arrived in Australia with purpose and dream of winning Ashes down-under and they proved it at GABBA and now confirming it in Adelaide with their brilliant performance in the field. England is having a team at the moment which can beat any side in the world but they are also in benefit because of the weakened Australian side. On the other hand England is also having problems with the form of star batsman Kevin Pietersen  who is going through rough patch. If England have to win Ashes this time then they need big runs from Pietersen because Pietersen holds the key in middle-order for them and if Pietersen performs well, then I feel England have outright chance to win Ashes.
We all saw in Brisbane that both teams fought hard and result was draw on final day. So I hope this test also go till 5th day and become close contest.
