    As long as he doesn't start appearing next to McGrath in press conferences or around his home wearing make-up and/or wearing drag and doing what he tells him to do

    Sweet four for Harmison.

    I love listening to Brian Lara, has some great things to say, unlike Chappelli telling us every minute that KP shouldn't be at five.

    McGrath > Flintoff
    Clark = Hoggard
    Lee = Harmison
    Warne > Panesar
    Symonds = Mahmood

    Not a huge difference tbh.

    I remember him saying every minute that Atapattu should be at 3 and not Sangakkara.

    Almost as bad as Lawry saying England should declare at 9/146.

    Lawry is now saying England should declare.

    Mind you KP is now gone, so either Monty and Hoggard will go the tonk or get out., May as well go the tonk.

    Hoggard pulls McGrath for four. Fine shot sir.

    Well bowled sir. Won't look fair when you see his wickets on the highlights package. Most of them were just thrown away, however he deserved to have Pietersen stumped and Panesar was plumb LBW.

    As is often the case, McGrath and Warne is the difference - but it is a big one.

    Plus, I think the batting holds significant differences as well. More than just the bowlers have a baring on if the batsmen struggle - the batsmen themselves play a large role.

    Hayden = Strauss
    Langer = Cook
    Ponting > Bell
    Hussey > Collingwood
    Clarke < Pietersen
    Symonds = Flintoff (both completely useless at the moment)
    Gilchrist > Jones
    Warne > Mahmood
    Lee > Harmison
    Clark > Panesar
    McGrath < Hoggard

    Bascially, what it boils down to, is that I don't think the Australian batsmen would have struggled nearly as much as the English.

    Man for man Australia are undoubtedly better but an even bigger difference is the way that they work as a team and in partnerships and the fact that's they're better in the important positions (# 3, wicketkeeper, spinner).

    You had Langer and Hayden equal with their corresponding counterparts. I'd have Langer better than Cook at least. Even if they are equal you'd expect Hayden/Langer to put a higher score on the board than Strauss/Cook.
