    Did you plead guilty?

    1st time Stralia had conceded over 400 on the 1st day of a Test since 1938

    I would have thought so.

    My only concern is that Brett Lee may have worked out in the interim that bowling an endless stream of wide half-volleys is a bad idea at Test level.

    I think the wounds have healed enough now for me to watch this too.

    Always wished the coin had come down the other way - would be seen as yet another act of glorious heroism by Vaughan rather than the ridiculously overstated mistake by Ponting that it was.

    Which means, regardless of what happened afterwards, Harmy took the key wicket. He was the one who took the wicket that meant the match was won, IMO. It was Harmison who got Clarke out and that was the key wicket, but yes, what happened afterwards made it even more vital.

    I was awarded 75 once, and I was made up. But just a couple of weeks later I was fined 80, and thought to myself, jeez, but for that 75 I'd have really been in the **** this month. Getting fined that 80 made the 75 I had been awarded more important. Things often become more important than they seemed at the time, and Harmison's wicket of Clarke is one of them.
    I have no doubt I could come-up with a similar metaphor illustrating the reverse. I'll tell you what I thought when Clarke's wicket fell - I thought "well that's another one on the way". The game was in the bag barring a miracle before and after Clarke's wicket.

    There is no way that wicket will ever be a key one AFAIC. And no, that has nothing to do with the fact that Harmison took it - although if, say, Hoggard had got it it's unlikely I'd ever even have posted about it once, because no-one would ever talk much about it.

    Series Result: Aus 2-1
    Top Eng Runscorer: Bopara
    Top Aus Runscorer: Clarke
    Top Eng Wicket-taker: Anderson
    Top Aus Wicket-taker: Johnson
    Player of the Series: Clarke
    Surprise Packet: Anderson (for general Australians who haven't seen him since 06/07)
    Dropped Player(s): Hauritz
    Miscellaneous Event: England will pass 500 twice.

    Changing this to Clarke, looks far and away the best player on tour so far.
    Rest In Peace Craigos

    England will dominate the 1st Test and it'll look like the only result possible is England winning, but somehow they'll find a way of drawing it. Australia will then dominate the rest of the series, apart from the last Test, which will be a deadrubber that England win and that victory will make the poms think that they'll win the next Ashes series, despite the fact that they'll only win because of several dubious umpiring decisions and Australia's lack of desire because of the match being a deadrubber.

    Result: Australia wins, England loses...

    That makes sense, but I think it will be Australia all the way to match the previous 5-0 drubbing they handed out in the last series in Australia.
