Ok, so it sounds corny. But full credit to Ian Bell. He had a wonderful series and was probably the difference between the two teams.
yeah I'm just jiving, he largely was the difference

Worse Aussies to have as your avatar though Aders tbf. least they didn't saddle you with Hayden.
ha so they sat in their own piss apparently
I think there is far to much criticism of how England played at times and far too little criticism of those awful pitches they deliberately prepared.. .
The oval test was ittle more than a joke. A contrived final day doesnt change the fact that this was an impossible surface made for mindnumbingly dull cricket which will no doubt lead to the death of test cricket if continued. The truly sad thing was, that England did this on purpose..
Of course they should play to their advantages but its not ok to set up conditions that ruin the game. If England are playing football against brazil they dont run a plow through the Wembley pitch to negate their opponents skills.
