    Well done poms, won the key moments when it mattered the most.

    Still shocked that Australia dominated all the KPI's (most runs & wickets) and still find themselves losing

    well done you poms.

    It was a fascinating if frustrating series.

    Congratulations.

    Well done to England on a deserved victory. It does feel strange this time around as opposed to 2005 when I genuinely believed that we had a side that was capable of being the best team in the world, which was ruined by injuries, poor attitude, lack of focus and many many poor selections. I'd like to think that England can kick on from this victory this time having learned from their mistakes 4 years ago. There are players in this side like Broad, Onions and Trott (and perhaps Swann) who I hold out hope for as they could have a bright future and lead England to being better than a mid-card side at least.
    Tendulkar = the most overated player EVER!!
    Beckham = the most overated footballer EVER!!
    Vassell = the biggest disgrace since rikki clarke!!

    Sounds about right. As does this piece, which is one of the writer's better efforts imo.

    It was the allrounders wot won it | Opinion | Cricinfo Magazine | Cricinfo.com

    Despite the joy, it's quite a strange victory. Whereas four years ago I thought 9 of the side would feature for years to come (the exceptions being Giles & Jones the Drop), this time only half the side are certainties four our next test, never mind the next Ashes. Interesting times, but huge plaudits to coach & captain. Glad to see there's no open-top parade this year. And probably no gongs, as the captain already has one. Let's hope Santa brings us a couple of batsmen for the SA series, as I don't know where else they're going to come from.

    Well done England. Haven't been able to watch as much as I did in 05 and then in 06, but sounds like it was a great series.

    Now England need to go to Pakistan and lose 2-0 to complete the cycl--oh.
    RIP Craigos

    Think a whitewash in South Africa will get their heads right back on this planet tbh.

    Just go over with a few spaces left in the squad and find them while there IMO. Should save money on flights etc.
