This ashes series defeat was our worst since the 88/89 series against the windies in oz, when they beat us 3-1 but no innings defeats. This time we were basically destroyed, 3 innings defeats is the kind of stuff we used to do the the crap teams in our prime.
Our alleged best bowler johnson fires about once a series when the ball decides to swing but usually hes hopeless. The rest are hacks. Clark was a genuine top quality bowler who was somehow shafted for no apparent reason. Our selectors are good at that.
Our batsmen play like its a 20/20 and cant last more than 100 balls. Our best batsman is only a few years from retirement and out of form.
Im wondering if the current state of aussie cricket is as bad as it was in the mid 80s when AB took over and slowly led us out of the darkness.
Who will lead us now? Clark? AB was made of stone and a great player, Clark is too worried about his hair style and his gf. What a joke. We are in big trouble imo.
I think what always seperated us from the rest was our bowlers. It didnt matter if we got out for 200 because we could bowl them out for 150.
