- Australia bowling England out for 102 on the first day at Headingly, that was a clinical and dominating period of bowling if there was one. They made the English line-up look like they had never picked up a bat in their life.
- Ricky Ponting becoming Australia's leading run scorer.
- Jimmeh and monty holding on at Cardiff and somehow Australia couldn't get that last wicket. Pretty gutsy IMO.
I'll post some more when I think of them.
Yeah, and to add to that
- Johnson and Hilfy' spell in the last 30 minutes of day 2 of the Headingley test.
- Clarke and Haddin partnership in the Aussie 2nd innings at Lord's, we didn't the game, but that was a pretty special counter-attacking partnership.
- Collingwood' gritty knock at Cardiff, everyone talks about MSP and Jimmy' heroics, but if it hadn't been for him, England won't have had a chance.
- Siddle' spell to Swann at Cardiff in the 2nd innings was also a pretty intriguing contest.
