Do they still have the best bowling attack in the world? 

(I know it wasn't Clarke made that claim)

Quite. As he says it was an absolute disgrace.

Was just reading Jim Maxwell's individual ratings of the Convicts, and the last sentence of this made me laugh:


 


Shane Watson - 6/10


Matches: 5; Runs: 418; Average: 41.80; Highest score: 176; Fifties: 1; Centuries: 1


Mercurial and influential, but was his 176 at The Oval an aberration or a positive sign? No future as an umpire.

Yes, a good piece. But the key point is that the situation had precious little to do with the umpires and an awful lot to do with a poorly drafted law & match regs (ground, weather & light).

Criticism for Cook's captaincy and praise for Clarke's captaincy.

I think I rather be in Cook's position than Clarke's who has not won a single Test out of last 9 and lost 7 of them.

It shows that no matter how tactically you are good as captain, it ain't any use if you don't have batsmen than can bat and bowlers who can take 20 wickets.

Will lock this and consign it to the classics forum in a while.

It classic it hasn't been though. Comfortable for England against a rubbish Aussie side. A series ruined by poor umpiring and technology disputes.


Roll on winter.
