It's official. What a team Australia are.
thanks to retirements, they're officially less good as of NOW.
All we need is old smugface Ponting himself to fuck off, and Australia are beatable again; just not by us...
our WICKETKEEPERS HAD MANAGED MORE THAN 2 RUNS BETWEEN THEM
Sometimes I felt that the tail started with Jones/Read during this series. The number of embarrassing collapses and below-par scores has been god-awful.
However, I think Stuart Clark's damn good, and deserves to be in the Aussie team until he retires.
He only made one 50 in the whole series, am I right? And that was in the final test....
As for Read and Jones, well they both failed in terms of runs, and they can't have kept their wicket very well....
it was only a fair result. they deserved their 5-0 as much as we deserved out 2-1.
it was quite emotional watching the final aussie bowling overs. warne and mcgrath being stuck in, presumably until one of them got the final wicket.
then hayden coming out was emotional too.
it's just a shame that england weren't able to compete on any level for more than a day.
I had my suspicions
that's why it was a sticky wicket.
...in the hope we all miss the one day series. Otherwise I might take up self harm or something. I watched Girl, Interupted last night, why did I think Natalie Portman was in it? Jolie or Ryder? Hmmm....
