2005 was last when Ashes was worth watching in last 20 years. They all have been so lopsided.It is not even worth watching, Australia India series have been far more compelling than this junk.

Sorry white people are not interested in India series as much as a fellow white teams..we need to make our own legacy with srilanka..

Yes sa is a good size country strong economy multi cultural leads Africa. Perfect for tv time perfect for rivalry outside of a back in mainstream mature progressive friendly pakistan( which is a pipe dream at this point).

Pick some more trundlers to play in Australia. :phehe: 

 

Assistant coach Paul Farbrace admitted that England were paying price for the lack of pace in their bowling attack after a chastening experience at the WACA on Saturday (December 16). England took just one wicket for 346 runs as Australia dominated day three of the third Test.

 

 

"We don't have that extra pace and we haven't got the highest quality of magical spin," Farbrace told reporters after the day's play. "We've got what we've got and we've had to work exceptionally hard. It's been a very, very tough day."

Have to say though..Anderson still looks their best bowler :hatsoff: 

 

Anderson might get criticized as clouderson or GTB but Any bowler who takes 500+ wickets has to be given respect...he is good

give him a break he is bowling with bruised ribs,he has been their best bowler this game

Bruised ribs or not the much maligned Ishant And Yadav even at their spray gun and no rhythm worst hit atleast 135+ .

 

You either have pace or not....in rhythm even Anderson and Bhuvi hit 140+

 

Bruised ribs or not  if it is too painful he shouldn’t play but 120ks is embarrassing.

You guys are being too harsh on him. He is playing this test with a cracked rib, imagine how painful it will be to bowl in such a situation. I admire his guts here, bowling with painklillers and all that stuff.

I have nothing against him,didn't even know that he was bowling with broken rib,  its no rocket science you need bowlers like shoaib, styen and rabada  to win in Australia, but this English are obsessed with tall guys, just look at that ball guy neither accurate nor quick
