    Australia vs England has always been the biggest Test series in world cricket, and Australia have the Ashes.

    I think you'll find Lord's have the Ashes.

    I don't see how this is relevant to the discussion at all. Stop the nationalistic flagwaving, or we'll be infracting you for it yet again.

    The fact Michael Clarke shoulder was broken by Morkel during his 3rd Test ton just adds another layer to the courage he displayed during that innings.

    You could rub some clover into it for him.

    I was at the 4th day - the Saturday - of the Centurion Test and it was sold out. I tried to get tickets but couldn't but then my friend luckily managed to organise for us in a corporate box. The atmosphere was also great, a real festival or carnival atmosphere.

    The first two days of the Newlands Test were also sold out which were over a weekend.

    South Africans have to work, so it is not surprising that the weekdays of the Test series were relatively poorly attended. Test crowds in SA are not great, but they are certainly not as bad as people here seem to think.
