when do you thing in test cricket has austrlai most looked like lossing a test match, we have hade on draw against South Africa but the most worried I have been is the first test against Bangladesh espeicllay after the first innings each. only Banladesh fauilure in there second innings and Pontings batting saved Australia and a droped catch
what do other people thing is the closed Australia has come to losing a match since the 2005 Ashes series
the World XI was no contest, neither were the West Indies
South Africa drew the first match but needed to make something like 500 in the 4th inns nether looked like it, in the Second test i went to 2 days and they nver looked like winning, McGrath had an one hundred last wiket partnership with M.Hussey
the 3rd test Australia one it when it should have been a draw but for Smith declaring
I just looked up hour test matchs and I now recall the 3rd test agoianst South Africa with langer getting hit in the head but i still fell the 1st test agianst Bangladesh was more worrying for me and in the media as a loss especially whe i looked like we could have to follow on.
which test since the ashes 2005 do poeple feel Australia came closed to Lossing
I would say it is between 3rd test South Africa at Johannesburg or Ist test at Fatullah
