Related - I wonder when was the last time a match in England had no play lost and was still a draw. Feeling it might be the sort of thing to throw at the get-on-with-it brigade that crops up whenever we're winning.
"Your averages, captain, coaches and players can probably survive incompetence over a relatively short series, so if you’re going to be rubbish, make sure it’s against Pakistan, Sri Lanka, New Zealand or someone."
Did we lose play in the Lord's Test v South Africa in 2008?
Fair enough, my only memory of that Test is South Africa batting for what felt like 6 months.
Certainly didn't expect this Australian line up to be the first side in the series to pass 400, let alone 500.
When was the last time we retained/won the Ashes in three tests? Must be Donkey's years.

There also can't be that many Australians who have worse records than Clarke? (5 series, won 1, lost 4).
