Nathan Lyon must be fuming, seeing Wade **** up and win us a game as opposed to all the changes he blew when he was test keeper.
Why did the swear filter hide the word f.u.n.k.y???

So I'm in a positive mood this morning and am just gonna put this out there......
Anyone that watched the Ashes in England generally accepts that the 3-0 scoreline was flattering to England and the test series was more competitive than that score suggests. I think the same is true of 4-1 in this ODI series and England can take some heart out of the cricket they have played in this format and approach next years World Cup back here with some confidence. As Australia showed in the back to back test series, they went from a team that had forgotten how to win key moments to a team that now doesn't seem to know how to lose them..........If England had of performed a little better in a couple of key passages in this series they would have won it 3-2.
This is just a mental and confidence thing, it has nothing to do with ability and can change very quickly with a change of environment and a couple of wins under the belt.
There is definitely some basis to that. I guess if we win in Brisbane though, Australia play a stronger team in Perth, and this one, so conceivably could still be 4-1.
I do think there are a lot more positives to take from this, though. The big worry mind you is our performance in close games. Cost us the CT and cost us here.
Definitely think Eng can be happy about their WC prospects based on this series. Filling out a team around Morgan, Buttler, Stokes is achievable and the way they came back from the Faulkner heroics earlier in this series shows they have a bit of resilience.

There are definite benefits to the ramp shot in general, but you don't see McCullum pulling it out till the last few overs and he's the best practitioner.
