I'm not sure it's that tough if you play decent cricket. WI were woeful and we played poorly. England were good in patches, but if we'd have had two bowlers bowling well consistently I think we would have won. Both teams were inconsistent though so you could say the same for either.Hmm, dunno. I think England's a pretty tough place to tour at the moment, especially for Australia because they put so much towards success in this particular series.
Fair point on Monty and Jimmy, but you could also say there's no need to get too hung up over a series you were one wicket away from taking.
I'm not too hung up on the series really I just don't think the result is any justification for saying England are tough at home or losing to SA at home should be more disappointing as we were really poor in England. Losing to SA was not entirely unexpected, losing to England in the manner we did was a terrible effort in comparison.
