    I think in general England, SA and even India, SL and NZ are producing far better test match wickets at the moment. Only the WI and Pak producing anything near the same standard as Australia.

    Hey tooextracool, you should have your medication and eyesight checked, again. Any cricket lover with an IQ in double digits would prefer what you get here, then the slow, low and boring dust bowl stuff like you get there. Ahh well, at least you're good for a laugh

    Just because certain teams can't win there doesn't mean its not a good cricket pitch.

    As long as its not that infamous Mumbai pitch, or lifeless one where there are only draws, I have no problems it.

    Haha, I've never heard so much **** in my life. That just doesn't make sense at all. You could play all 5 matches on a front lawn and you'd get 5 results, but it wouldn't be a good test match pitch would it?

    I agree that a result doesn't necessarily mean a good wicket, but I think it's obvious that a wicket like (for instance) Brisbane was merely a good batting wicket, rather than an absolute road that was bad for cricket. If you bowled well and had a balanced attack, there was something there for the bowlers.

    The only wicket in the series that was really bad was Adelaide IMO. The rest of the series was okay. A little less assistance for the bowlers than what would be ideal, but there was at least some variation from one test to another. Sydney probably had the best pitch of the series.
