    excluding Warne and Flintoff, who were Australia and Englands players of the series ?

    its a tough dilemma if you ask me....for england i would say that it woudl have to be trescothick, but for australia i couldnt really say, although i was impressed with brett lee he did bowl a lot of rubbish....

    anyone else have any ideas ?

    Brett Lee coz he played his heart out every test and was so unlucky... he should have had more wickets than he did and should have had his fifty twice... and he was a great sportsman thru it all too... exept for his last spell which i think he was gonna kill someone i wonder what made him so angry?

    Langer for Aus. Agree about Tres though, he gave us some good starts. Jonah with his Irish balls...

    Simon Jones. The world be warned, once this man gets going, only injury can stop him.....which i hope isn't the case.

    Has anyone done any digging about that? I really wanted Vaughan to declare during that spell (having formerly obviously been of the opinion would simply be embarrassing for the Aussies and bad sportsmanship) not least to protect Hoggard.

    I'd say Langer for Australia, the only batsman who England's bowlers struggled to get out.

    For England, it's a three-way fight between Tresco, KP and the Dragon. I think Dragon shades it, if only because he was the one out of the seamers who many thought could struggle - he was even dropped in SA, seems unthinkable now. Tresco had a fantastic series though, he really imposed himself and was a very safe pair of hands apart from one difficult chance (shame he didn't get to do any bowling ). I don't really think any more needs to be said about KP to be honest.

    Hoggy always laughs when he batting. Especially when he's being sledged.

    What was Hoggy laughing at, then? He has to have been laughing at something Brett did or said....

    That's true - he laughs when 96mph bouncers whistle past his ears, which isn't conducive to not getting any more of them!
