    But we always had Jason Gillespie to soak up a few hundred deliveries when needed.

Given how we've dominated Australia, Sri Lanka, India, New Zealand, Pakistan etc...last time they came, one game isn't going to get me worried. Especially considering the 3 players who did best for us all had question marks surrounding them before the series started.
    Australia - it wasn't exactly domination
    Sri Lanka - subcontinent team; they're bound to struggle in swinging conditions
    India - subcontinent team; they're bound to struggle in swinging conditions
    New Zealand - who doesn't dominate them
    Pakistan - they did beat you in 1 test and probably would've had you if half their team wasn't match fixing

    South Africa will be a tough test - they're used to swinging/bouncy tracks; they have a great pace attack; their batsmen won't flop like India's in swinging conditions.

    You talk about the lack of strength in the opposition. But West Indies are hardly the strongest team in the world. CSB's point was that we didn't dominant them (a weak team). So my response was that I wasn't worried as we've dominated the majority of the teams that have come over recently including weak teams.

    CSB why can't you learn to be more like young Pie. Less disliking of teams and more happiness at their success.

    I do... with every team EXCEPT England. I don't like England. Never will. Every other team I'm happy when they succeed...









    Except for India maybe.

    It's probably easier for you to do because you hold the Ashes. When we win the Ashes back I might start liking England. Maybe.

    I admit I didn't like you as much when you won all the time. Guess there is a hint of jealousy.

    I liked England when they didn't win the Ashes for 18 years. I even felt sorry for them.

    India got owned in 08. India has never won a series in Aus, it's pretty funny.

    I was actually referring to your tour of India in late 2008. After that and the home series against SA I started feeling sorry for you and have liked you ever since.

    Not this again... Indians forget they got plenty of decisions in their favour in that test (and in Perth).

    -Ricky Ponting (55) given out by Mark Benson Ponting inside edged bowler Harbhajan Singh back onto his back pad. He was adjudged LBW after an Indian appeal to the umpire.
    -VVS Laxman (16) given not out by Mark Benson Laxman shaped to flick a full ball from Brett Lee down the leg side, further replays indicate the ball would probably have struck middle and leg or leg stump. Laxman went on to score 109.
    -Sachin Tendulkar (36) given not out by Steve Bucknor Tendulkar was struck low on the pad in front of the stumps by the second ball of the 79th over of the Indian innings bowled by Michael Clarke. Bucknor adjudged it not out. Tendulkar went on to score 154 not out.
    We won Sydney fair and square. If our boy Pup hadn't taken 3 wickets in 5 balls nobody would've complained.

    He let you off easily FTR.

    When I bait him he uses it as an opportunity to ridicule England and make me look like an idiot etc...

    You probably played and missed 9,000 times so it doesn't really count. Hurp derp.

    I did let him off easily... but only because he's admin and would probably ban me if I said the stuff I would say on Youtube for instance.

    A lot of those are blown out of proportion. (Lee no-ball is debatable, as was the Symonds 3rd-ump stumping). And the video conveniently leaves out the decisions I quoted just earlier.

    Yeah but if you do that I can just annoy you on Youtube anyway.

    Exactly. You better hope you guys beat SA, because if you don't you know I won't let you live it down.

    You're so lucky Ashes videos get blocked.


    Damn you ECB, I'm trying to take the piss out of Aussies and your stopping me? Do you want us to be the joke of the cricketing world?

    Well I'm already planning to do more fail videos with the source vids from the Pak-Eng series. Bell-end is in for a rough time I fear.

    Interestingly I uploaded some super spells by England against Clarke at Brisbane, and CA gave me a copyright strike.

    I uploaded Johnson and Harris ripping through us at Perth and they've been untouched with thousands of views.
