    I'm just glad the aussies did not make it at the end of the day england has been the best odi side this season so they deserve it, and the Australian need to look at developing new players, coz in the rugby and the cricket their old guys can't do it anymore... By the way WE won the Tri-nations... just reminding you..

    Nope, sorry - we have been one of the worst ODI sides this season, incapable of reaching the final of a triangular tournament in our own country.

    I guess Saturday means we don't get to see Oztamer again.

    It certainly didn't make England's job any harder.

    I've never denied that that did make a large impact on the series, to be fair.

    It's a different thing getting used to injuries and coping with them.

    This is one of the more off-topic threads in Cricket Chat and specialists, yes.

    Thing is, FRAZ, it can't be racist if it's England-Australia.
    It can be xenophobic, and there are flame-wars (fortunately few here) that originate from xenophobia on the part of both Englishmen and Australians.
    However, too much IMO is dismissed as "Anglo-Aussie rivalry", and when you get Indo-Pak or subcontinent-Australia stuff along the same lines it's far more quickly branded as xenophobia\racism.

    No worries, of course, in us losing at Rules Football, because we don't go in for that sort of rubbish.

    Union is not a "big sport" in Australia. it's a very distant last of 4 codes played here. Most people have never even heard of it. It's basically confined to public schools in QLD and NSW with a sprinkling in other states. All the more remarkable the Wallabies can compete at the highest level. Oh and for the uneducated like Richard Australian rules came into being four years before the FA layed down the rules of Soccer and is played in 60+ countries. And yes I'm English!
