You can score at a reasonable pace in the context of the bowling standard and the conditions without collapsing horribly.
This test didn't show the attitude taken to the extreme end of the scale no, and I never said it did. I was replying to someone who said "oh well, 4-0 isn't any different to 3-0" o something along the lines.
I'm gonna agree with Border, Clark and Julian on this one and respectfully disagree with you.

Let's face it, we've always struggled in India so playing 4 tests there against India, and then having to back up and play The Ashes there against England was always going to be a struggle.
And I like our odds better. Can't believe people suggest we don't play for the draw enough, 2 out of 9 is probably more than S.Waugh achieved in his whole captaincy career.

For all the talk of our weak batting we got 6 scores over 300 in the series and weren't out for under 200 at any time. Not a bad effort but obviously not great.
Only reason they urinated on the pitch is because they were too far from the garden at 10 Downing Street to do it there.
