1 question: How the F**K can you lose a game from where the poms did? It was a gutsy move to declare with only 550 on the board. I wouldn't have done it, but it seemed like it paid off when JL was out cheaply that arvo. However the only way England were going to win is if they only had to bat once (or maybe for a bit on the last afternoon). After we avoided the follow on, we were never really going to lose. But that's no excuse for capitulating. All the poms are willing to talk up how much mentally tougher their team is these days ...... can't see it myself.
Let's face it, Australia still has a better team, both mentally and physically.... but especially mentally.
sorry to gloat, but that's how i see it
