    Just an expression, Roseboy - sorry if I offended your core floral values.

    In retrospect, it was a scintillating series. It would certainly be No. 6 in my top ten.

    Sorry about my reply. It's a known fact that loathing of Ian Botham is burnt into the heart of every cricket-loving Australian.

    If you lived here you'd understand.

    I disagree - all those series were won by decisive margins (especially AUS vs SA) and had an anticlimax.

    Australia in West Indies 97/98 is the one I have enjoyed the most particularly because of Lara's batting and the bowling attack of both teams being of very good quality. Australians had all the batters as usual and it was one man Lara vs them literally. Wonderful.
