I wasn’t going to post anything on our historic Ashes victory. However, I had to chuckle at this article in the Telegraph about some predictions by an Australian journalist before the series.
Anyway, well done to England for a superb performance. I also want to give a bit of credit to Shane Watson who has given a lot of the end of the day interviews on the TMS podcasts for Australia. I think he has acquitted himself well and has been commendably honest in difficult circumstances. He’s one of the few Aussies along with Hussey and Siddle who have put their hands up to be counted. He’s also someone who has had a lot of bad luck with injuries, yet has persevered. Good on you Shane!
Meanwhile India have retained their top spot in the Test rankings, so the summer series in England should be extra special. Sri Lanka is also a tasty hors d’œuvre.
