    Liked what Tony Greig said about our response to this being a challenge for Australia.
    I think it's just deep down we all knew our team was playing poor cricket and never really deserved to win. England were simply far better, and the end result is completely justified.

    Add to the congratulations here, England far too good over the duration of the series. Deserved to win, and deserve to win (or at least draw) in Sydney. 2-2 would greatly flatter Australia. The fact they can call guys up from their reserves bench and they perform as well, if not better, than the guys who were originally in the team is impressive.

    well done engerlund
    I got great enjoyment shouting "WHY THE **** ISN'T THIS GAME BEING PLAYED AT THE BASIN?!>!?!?" to reasonably significant cheers from the sparse crowd

    Perhaps because it's because you can see that his time is quickly drawing to an end? As a cricket fan that is a definite cause for sadness and IMO that's much sadder for me than losing this test/series.

    Yeah, have to agree, looked a bit of a broken man. Banter aside, it was a bit uncomfortable thinking this might be the end of the road for one of the undoubted greats of the game. It's an uncomfortable contrast with how McGrath and Warne bowed out 4 years ago.
