We already have Lillee teaching our kids how to bowl fast--witness Sreesanth.

Now all we need is Warney to teach our kids how to bowl leg spin. God (if she/he/it exists) bless Australia.

Saludos to the god of leg spin.:kowt:

If Flintoff's ankle is still giving him trouble then surely he shouldn't be playing, it's stupid to if the series is already lost. Strauss could captain and Ed Joyce strengthen the batting, then get Collingwood and Pietersen to bowl. Yes Flintoff got the two wickets but so what, he should be thinking of his future and not risking things on a couple of dead rubbers.

I actually hope that Warne reverses his decision to retire - world batsmen will have it too easy with him gone, he could carry on and get 800 or more.

I second that, mate.

Flintoff would be a good captain with a good coach and a good "brain's trust" wicket keeper. He is the only player in the English team WHO NEVER GIVES UP. Maybe he shouldn't play injured. Probably he was trying to make a statement.

It was pointed out that the first time this series any English player has ever actually gone up to Flintoff and offered him advice on the field was yesterday. And that was Read. Warne and Gilchrist are always jawing with Ponting. I used to love it when some of my trusted players had a word in my ear during the game. Sometimes I was already thijknking it, and sometimes it was something I hadn't thought about.

Another test over in 3 days:( I think the England and Wales Cricket Board should refund the money to the people who payed for the 4th and 5th days. Not to mention us poor buggers who have nothing to watch while enjoying a beer Fri/Sat.:sigh: Only thing on is soccer. Pommie Bastards:confused:

A big statement.

Australia couldn't beat England at the previous series with Warne playing the best series of his career. He bagged 41 wickets that series.

Cricket is a team game. The unlikely Mr Symonds won us the last test. Who will do it next time? The Aussie cricket team is not a one or two man show. Neither were the great West Indies teams.

As a die-hard optimist I am betting on England winning the final test.

Odds are 100 to 1.

:cheers:

Maybe Warney and Pigeon will sprain their ankles. Maybe Ponting, Hayden, and Symonds will be too drunk to bat and maybe Monty will start taking wickets again.

And maybe 2007 will be a better year for the rest of the world at stopping the Aussie juggernaut.:wonder:

Rudi seemed to lose all confidence in himself. He wouldn't give an lbw to save his life. Then he gave Warney one that was pretty suss.

When you are losing the bad decisiions hurt all the more.

Rudi is unimpeachable, imo. But I think he lost the plot toward the end of day 2 and all of day 3.

I went on day 3. Melbourne is my city. The English side was pitiful. The Barmy Army was good entertainment, though...LOL

Sorry. I'm almost feeling sorry for the English side. 5-0 is cruel.

At the start when Flintoff won the toss and decided to bat first, I thought with Monty on the last day on a turning pitch you may have had a chance.

The Aussie juggernaut rolls on.

Clean sweep after 86 years.

All one can say is "Well played Aussie.":cheers:

Meanwhile it is raining on South Africa's parade after Tendulkar's worst performance till date. :(

Never mind. You tour England in 7/8 months. He'll find his old form quick enough then. ;)

The unthinkable is happening in India right now.

People are asking whether he is Tendulkar or Endulkar? Not a single century in 2006, mate.

Pretty bad form, wouldn't you say?:(

The theory in Australia is Tendulkar started early, and he is burnt out. Give him 12 months off to recharge.
