Australia managed to get 15 overs in in 50 minutes with England timewasting. Makes a mockery of International sides not being able to bowl 15 overs an hour throughout a normal day.
Loving how a minority of Aussie fans here are working themselves up into a lather of righteous indignation.

RIP Craigos. A true CW legend. You will be missed.

****ed off that Australia were winning so often cricket writers went the next level and developed a method to neutralise their disappointment (and appeal to their readers) via an attack on the defining spirit in which the contests were won. Also to point out where the lines had been crossed. So suddenly if Australia attempt to take it seriously and come back to the pack you find "Nature abhors a vacuum" and other sides will also push the boundaries (because it appears to work and nobody usually cares what the losing team does). And now we see the classic case where 'ye olde' comparison trap is used to divert attention away from the actual situation and point the finger back at Ponting for pontification (similar behaviour to the original expressed through different means) . Talk about having your cake and eating it too:
I don't expect Aus to take this seriously for all that long, especially if other sides take the p*** out of us.
