    If it was a 3 match series, then given that Australia has been a graveyard for opposition spinners and those figures include one match winning spell, I'd say it was a pretty successful tour.

    Hmmm, not so sure about that. Would say he's done about as well as anyone could've expected him to; he's bowled well on a second innings pitch to take a bagful, but other than that has struggled somewhat. Would say he's been average so far; not good, not bad.

England will win in Australia again this winter as they are a better side which they have shown this summer. 3-0 doesn't lie girls.

    And already 15th in a home series for an Aussie.
    Not only that but Hussey has now broken his own record for the number of consecutive Ashes half centuries or better.

    So basically if Australia win the Ashes back they can thank Marcus North.
    marc71178 - President and founding member of AAAS - we don't only appreciate when he does well, but also when he's not quite so good!

    Beware the evils of Kit-Kats - they're immoral apparently.

    I was looking up some series stats last night. Unfortunately I can't remember much of last night due to a strange dehydration-related illness I am suffering from today, but I think Cook might be close to surpassing Vaughan's 02-03 tally.

    Vaughan made 633 and Cook is currently on 577 so he has a pretty good chance.

    I imagine he'll only get one more innings in the series though, bloody useless Aussies

    At least he's back ahead of Hussey. At this point if I had to give out MOTS it would probably be Cook.

    In 6 innings this series, Cook has got more runs than in the entire 2006/7 and 2009 series put together. (19 innings)

    MOTS? Flower.

    As of this post, three England bowlers average under 20 for the series.

    Chris Tremlett has 12 @ 14.66
    Tim Bresnan has 2 @ 12.5
    Kevin Pietersen has 1 @ 16

    Not Ashes specific per se, but I heard on SSN before that Trott now has the second highest batting average of all-time after Bradman, did I hear correctly?

    Obviously it's early days etc and Hussey once had this but it's still impressive. What an asset he is to us.

    Yeah if he gets out without scoring he'll slip to I think 5th or 6th.

    He needs 47 more, if he gets out, to stay in 2nd.

    Nope, only needs 13 more. He's on 1573 from 25 dismissals, so to stay ahead of Pollock he needs 26 X 61 = 1586.

    Still, can't argue with a 60+ average.

    In other Trottstats, at the start of this year's summer - 10 tests ago - his average was 37.38. He'd need to get 17 ducks in a row to get it back there.

    Think I stupidly calculated what he'd need to maintain his current average
