    Bit behind but Johnson's spell was pretty damn good. England looked genuinely troubled against the pace and movement. It is a shame we haven't got to see Cummins in the series. I'd have been interested to see how well England would have handled him.
    The speed at which a fielding team gets through the innings is overrated.

    Fair play to Johnson and all, looking like a proper bowler, but it all feels a bit "meh", doesn't it? Obviously can't legislate for the weather, but there's a real "after the Lord Mayor's show" atmos, IMHO. This is the trouble with putting the limited overs stuff after the tests.

    Not ideal we're looking so ropey, but Australia beating us in this series would be a bit like us getting revenge on Germany knocking us out of the world cup by beating them in Shove Ha'penny in the bar afterwards.

    - As featured in The Independent.

    "The committee discussed the issue of illegal bowling actions, and believed that there are a number of bowlers currently employing suspect actions in international cricket, and that the ICC's reporting and testing procedures are not adequately scrutinising these bowlers."
    - Even the ICC's own official press release thinks things must change

    Which is why 5 match ODI series suck.

    It was better back when the ODIs were first, though Tests in September was a brave concept

    Five match series damaged badly by rain, and people are still saying it's too much.

    Maybe ODI cricket just isn't your thing?

    It's hard to give a **** about the result when players are being rested.

    And when players are being rested, maybe it's a sign that you play too much cricket and can maybe do without unneccessary series?
