Hmmmm, Flower wasn't denying that this would be his last test
Time-wasting isn't 'negative tactics', it's cheating. Everyone does it though, England as much as anyone. But it's clearly worse than scoring your runs slowly.Congratulations England for winning the series. It was clear they were better (at least) at the big points, and deserved their win. One thing I have to say though, lol @ England fans for whinging about negative tactics. Hypocrites.
Clarke said as much at the preso.Time-wasting isn't 'negative tactics', it's cheating. Everyone does it though, England as much as anyone. But it's clearly worse than scoring your runs slowly.
Cook would undoubtedly do the same in Australia, and he'd get an absolutely brutal reception afterwards.
Can you lot not see we were all taking the piss out of you Aussies moaning that Cook did it and then your own captain resorted to the same tactics in the same match. Anyone who can't see we were just joking is a very sad ****.Nothing more satisfying than hearing England fans whinge about being 'robbed' of victory despite their attempts on both day 2 and 3 to ensure a result was impossible and having Clarke hand them the chance of a result. I'm only talking about fans who were on the radio leaving the ground though, I haven't read back what English posters thought of all this on the forum.
