    Don't see what you're all complaining about. We won, didn't we? ()

    You've contradicted yourself in terms there!

    Adelaide was a fine test match, definitely the highlight. Will also hold fond memories of Ponting's first day century, and Warne's 700th in Melbourne.

    Ditto, with the exception of the last day at Adelaide.

    Will also hold fond memories of Pontings 1st century, it was quite simply amazing. Same goes for the final day at Adelaide, Warnes 700th, and the final day at Sydney, but being a Ponting fan all my life, his century stands out the most

    Flintoff was so pumped when he got Matthew Hayden out, it all went downhill from there basically.

    It had been going downhill since the moment Hoggard failed to dismiss Hayden with the 1st ball he bowled at him IMO...

    Has there ever been a more symbolic moment/omen for a series than Harmison's first ball?

    Especially when you compare it to the series before.

    If you fast-forward to the 2nd innings and the 2nd over you could argue that there was one in 2001.

    (The dropped catch which Ward dropped off Hayden summed-up England in that series)
