    What a shellacking.

    Kind of a disappointing series, but I enjoyed England's batting today.

    Butler finishes with a series economy rate of 7.50. Steady.
    Every 5 years we have an election and have to decide who are the least obnoxious out of all the men. Then one gets in and they age really quickly. Which is always fun to watch.

    Reckon Butler will have a good cry after the game.

    Never mind 140, could have chased down 240 with batting like that. Clearly they had a good talking to after Hamilton. But a bit of a pity to have three such one-sided games.

    Odd presentation style here isn't it, the captains don't get interviewed, they just give a little speech.

    And no man of the match/series?

    I think Munro should probably take up softball. He just swings from the hip without moving his feet. The Black Sox are missing a trick there.

    Not an international cricketer.

    Proudly against the bring back Bennett movement since he is injury prone and won't last 5 days.

    Well played England.

    Best bit on comms over here was when Nick Knight said to Ian Smith "Didn't I see you running up Mt Vic yesterday?" Smith replied, "That was probably a whale in the harbour you saw."

    *awkward silence*

    cdg looks a better bet to me on this evidence. I haven't seen a whole lot of either, mind. My sample size is relatively small!

    1) he really should be bowling as well. he is an average bowler (using average in a good way)
    2) CDG couldn't catch up to the ball. While Munro has a 50. Munro has poor technique but good self belief.

    Fair enough. I'll bow to your greater knowledge. If Munro's in Black, I'll back him to the hilt. He just didn't look up to it to me. But, then, neither did Andrew Jones.

    Indeed he was all psychology. He was an average FC player until he started dating a psychologist. The two of them sat down and talked about the mind set for success and somehow that set up his career and he never looked back.

    His first inning in a test in Aussie the channel 9 commentators wrote him off until he bounced back with a 150.

    Worst ODI player ever though.
