Still, to sustain it for a six-Test series must be some effort.

Loved the Tub. Need more players batting in floppies.

Warne's 2005 series means I can appreciate how awesome an effort 40 wickets is. Cook's done the equivelant for batting. Ridiculous that Hussey is about 200 shy of his series total.

So awesome from Cook. He certainly looks like he'll break all sorts of England batting records.
The frightening thing is that in 89 Taylor went virtually unnoticed till very late in the series as all the focus in the media early on was on Waugh who was averaging about 350 once we finally got him out for the first time in the series in the 3rd test at Headingley. Our media with their love affair of slating Gower at the time basically ignored Tubbs until they finally woke up and realised he was having one of the greatest series of all time.
The fact Hussey has basically done what Vaughan did 8 years ago and been a one man band needs bigging up though. He has been superb as well.

Interesting that Taylor, in his series of greatness only passed 100 twice.
7 innings, 1 not out, 766 runs, average 127.66, 3 hundreds
Katich, Hughes, Ponting, Khawaja, Clarke, North, Johnson and Smith put together:
40 innings, 1 not out, 759 runs, average 19.46, 0 hundreds
That's an incredible stat.
