No, I'm saying they were so crap at cricket for so long that most people lost interest in the sport.

England has never handed over the Ashes, you know that right? Lol

Only when the Poms are losing, I think there is some around about the Poms doctoring the pitches last series though ;-)

We even gave them a start and the Poms still embarrassed themselves.

If Australia had won the toss and bowled, we'd still be batting now anyway as the poms would be all out already.

Might have been a good toss to loose, looks like there is a bit in the wicket. Hopefully square turn in the 4th innings!

Warner got the ball of the day ! Ok he missed it ! Rodgers was unlucky! The ball could have gone any where ! BUT Watto !! Same old ! Ugly ! And Baily ! Well leave him in hit and giggle ,not cut out for test cricket !!!!   So we have the old man Haddin saving another first innings ! Ably assisted by the lad who everyone recently said " why is he in the team" well I ask the same about the top four !   This team is going to get a rude awakening in South Africa !!!

75 from Haddin... Another great innings, just when the Aussies needed it. If Mitch wasnt on fire, then you would think that Haddin would have to be player of the series.

The best player for England this series - a Kiwi. Breaks the tradition for their best player being South African!

Interesting quote

There is a great stat doing the rounds saying the first innings aggregate in this Commonwealth Bank Ashes series has Australia's bottom 5 wickets outscoring the top 5 wickets by 362 runs! Brad Haddin has a lot of credit for that.
