England won. It still stands as the record test innings score. This all occurred at The Oval in London.

Scoring 700 will be more than enough for England in this innings! They're currently 3 for 59 (or 59 for 3) needing another 389 runs. Hopefully they can hang on long enough for a couple more commentary stints from 'Skull'.

I'm so happy for Boof Lehmann smile He's just what they needed. A bit of agro, fun and teamwork rather than science and homework wink

Apologies to England if we're gloating a little.. it's been a while! All in good fun, truly. Nothing better than an Ashes series! Cya next time smile

Go ahead and gloat. That must rank as the most pathetic effort from an England team that I've ever (not) seen. I've even avoided the highlights programmes on the basis that there aren't any. Well done Australia.

Everyone is suddenly down on Cook as captain, but they've only lost one series. If he has a weakness, it's that he's too nice, and not ruthless like captains of yore. The thing is, as well, that there is no-one around as an obvious successor. The Australian thinking has generally been that you pick the best 11 and then choose the captain from that, and England started to adhere to that theory for the past 20 years or so (Gooch, Atherton, Stewart, Hussain, Vaughan etc).
Now, the best players in the team are Cook, Bell, Pietersen, Anderson and Broad. Bell is so NOT a captain, Pietersen was tried and flicked, and still might announce his retirement soon, and Anderson has enough on his plate leading the attack. Which leads us to the current T20 captain, Broad.
He's a world-class player, he can inspire, and he's hated in Australia. On second thought, he's a perfect fit!

Broad is the name I've heard floated. Unless the players make some effort, though, I'm not sure the captain can make much difference.

Thanks for the drink, Tiz. Sorrows are being duly drowned.

Well, that was pants. Congratulations, Australia - I'm sure you deserved it only like Rossian I couldn't bear to watch so I'll take it on trust.

I am sort of a bit cheesed that England capitulated so quickly. I had such high hopes for a close and exciting series.

And I wish I could see what the rest of the country sees in Mitchell Johnson - perhaps if he took the mo off I could take him a bit more seriously! crazy

And guess what movie Leau and I watched on NYE...."You can't stop the wickets. Nobody can stop the wickets!"
