    Isn't this super series idea looking a bit pointless now?

    Surely it only made sense when Australia were the best by far and were completely dominating everybody.

    Wasn't that why the whole idea was even thought up? In order to give Australia a challenge?

    When they lose this series, which I now fully expect I think they should ditch the whole thing.

    Why would they ditch it? It's planned as a long-term thing, once every 4 years.

    I just think that now it's come, it's about three years too late & so lacks the appeal.

    England it is then for the series?

    Even if Australia somehow lose the Ashes (which I still don't think will happen), they're the dominant side and at home won't be easy to beat. Anyway, I always thought it was a bit pointless - OK as a one-off, but it shouldn't have official Test status.

    Bit early to write the Aussie side off SW, with a bit of luck they could be sitting pretty in this Test and if you add two they're right back in it.

    England are giving you a fight, but are still underdogs in the series.

    the super series would lose its apeal if Aus lose the Ashes. But a voice in my head says they'll win it.

    good god, the ashes isnt even over yet. i find it extremely annoying how certain people come up with such absurd conclusions after less than 2 test matches. after the 1st test, it was about flintoff being useless, after 2.5 tests we now already believe that england are the best test team in the world. get over it.
    Tendulkar = the most overated player EVER!!
    Beckham = the most overated footballer EVER!!
    Vassell = the biggest disgrace since rikki clarke!!

    Well yeah.

    To be honest. this game was won by the toss of a coin.

    On day one it was a concrete road, today it turned in the rough.

    Not as if Warne didn't turn it now is it??? I think it was poor batting and some good bowling that has got us our noses in front, losing the toss, although obviously a factor, sounds like a pretty feeble excuse if u ask me.
