    He scored 1 ****ing run. That's pretty bad in my books. Yes his captaincy was good but that doesn't cover for his batting.

    Ponting was pretty ****ty tbh.

    EDIT: Think it's the "once again" thing he's worried about.

    And I recognised that.

    Regarding Strauss, it was his failure in the 1st innings again against a bowler who did Sweet FA otherwise.

    Hussey 1 Not his fault was run out then injured
    Watson 4 Gave his wicket away twice when his team needed him to get big runs,never gets them though.
    Ponting 1 only thing he did right was win the toss
    Clarke 6 Gutsy 2nd innings knock under pressure
    Hussey 7 Looks in prime form though threw it away on last day.
    North 2 Surely his last match?
    Haddin 5 batting very well but dropped a dolly
    Harris 5 Pick of bowlers, not saying much though. King pair
    Doherty 1 Not good enough
    Siddle 2 Bowled utter garbage
    Bollinger 1 So much hype so little delivery

    Strauss 3 All for the captaincy though
    Cook 9 Looks in form of his life and is cashing in on it
    Trott 7 Scored well again and important run out on day 1
    Pietersen 10 Brilliant double ton and massive wicket
    Collingwood 4 Gave it away when set
    Bell 7 Looks most in form England player, shame he hasn't been needed yet.
    Prior 4 Decent cameo but dropped Hussey, luckily it didn't matter.
    Broad 5 bowled better than figures suggest before injury
    Swann 9 Who says finger spinners can't perform in Australia?
    Anderson 8 Brilliant opening burst set up win
    Finn 7 Keeps on picking up wickets despite all the criticism,i guess the convicts aren't watching their own bowlers bowl ****e.

    Neutral perspective:

    Australia:

    Katich - 4: Freak dismissal in the first innings, failed to convert a start in the second.
    Watson - 6: Solid performance. Not really match-turning though.
    Ponting - 2: Horrible performance with the bat, uninspiring as a captain, though not much he could've done.
    Clarke - 5: Fought hard in the second innings in a difficult situation. Ultimately failed again.
    Hussey - 7: Australia's best batsman. Loses points for his atrocious shot in the second dig.
    North - 2: Not much more can be said. Expected performance from North.
    Haddin - 4: Scored a 50 on a flat deck, then failed with the gloves and failed in the second innings, though he got a genuine good ball.
    Harris - 4: Probably the most encouraging Australian bowler, though that really doesn't say much. Kingpair coming in at no 8 is pretty awful.
    Doherty - 1: Tempted to say zero. Felt sorry for him, clearly not a test bowler.
    Siddle - 2: Toothless performance.
    Bollinger - 2: Same as Siddle.


    England:
    Strauss - 5: failed with the bat, but led England to their first live win on Australian soil in years.
    Cook - 9: Chanceless hundred basically, thought he actually batted better than in the last game.
    Trott - 7.5: Edgy innings, displayed a clear weakness to the short ball but still made runs. Got a vital runout.
    Pieterson - 10: Peerless performance in every capacity.
    Collingwood - 5: Average performance really, though didn't really do anything wrong.
    Bell - 7: To me still looks arguably the best England batsman. Didn't get a chance to show much.
    Prior - 6: Solid stuff
    Broad - 4: Not great. Took one wicket and got injured.
    Swann - 8: Bowled well in the first and beautifully in the second.
    Anderson - 8: Brilliant performance in the first innings on a flat pitch.
    Finn - 5: Showed some promise, also some vulnerability.

    "Your averages, captain, coaches and players can probably survive incompetence over a relatively short series, so if youíre going to be rubbish, make sure itís against Pakistan, Sri Lanka, New Zealand or someone."

    Sorry, but a 4 for Broad? I thought he bowled really well in this test, figures don't reflect it. I would of given him a 6 at least.

    Nope, not true. Wasn't terrible really, but not worthy of anything above four. Was unlucky in as much as he hurt himself and could only bowl eleven overs in the second innings, but that's the nature of the ratings.

    Not listening to, or responding to your partner's call then getting run out isn't unlucky. FFS, Watson completed the run easily and didn't break into anything more than a very light jog, it was about as easy a single as you'll see.

    To be fair, Watson's taken full responsibility for making a "soft call" that couldn't be heard properly.

    Although there was undoubtedly a single there, Watson has admitted his call was nowhere near loud enough.
