    It was 0-4 in India and 4-0 the year before in Australia.. That's pretty equal in my view.

    Just let India and Pakistan tour and we'll see Austraila thrashing these teams again.

    More words from Spikey:

    Here's Tahir Shah: "England need not be complacent with their current position. These lower order partnerships are always a characteristic of the Ozs for the last few seasons. They can easily get 300, if anyone of these two lasts till end."

Scraping the barrel here with Johnson but it's a rare event; Australia are likely to have at least two of Harris, Pattinson, Bird, Starc and Cummins fit at any one time, plus Siddle and Lyon.

    And smalishah's avatar is the most classy one by far Jan certainly echoes the sentiments of CW

    Yeah we don't crap in the first world; most of us would actually have no idea what that was emanating from Ajmal's backside. Why isn't it roses and rainbows like what happens here? PEWS's retort to Ganeshran on Daemon's picture depicting Ajmal's excreta

    That's true, but bowling is not Australia's problem right now. We have certainly got a world class attack and barring the WIndies in the 80s we probably have more depth to our attack than any other side in history. It's just unfortunate that we got two generations of batsmen who all happened to be around the same age and all retired 6 years ago. This current crop of batsmen are nowhere near the quality of the second stringers of the last generation.

    With the English bid I said: Let us be brief. If you give back the Falkland Islands, which belong to us, you will get my vote. They then became sad and left

    NAh, I support him, he just needs to use his force. I am his father

    Spikey says: I hesitate to comment, but usually when Mitch does well with the bat, he does well with the ball.

    Does the tea need to be warm? When you go for a run do you come home and put the kettle on?

    Or are you allowed to drink water also?

    Sanga isn't the best off spinner in the history of cricket? News to me.
