@yujilop: 5 test matches, 5 grounds, 25 days of sold out matches - you write Test crickets obituary.

I used to admire England but I think they never changed since bodyline series. Expressions are good but I like that Broad hat is awesome.

While I have nothing against Broad (batsmen are well within their rights to not walk; bowlers follow their captain's orders and the captain is the one at the risk of penalties for over-rates), the ultra-defensive way England has played, despite being on top in the series by a good margin suggests that Test cricket might go the way of the dodo. It's not that they've done anything wrong; just that very few fans have the time and patience for it in this day and age.

Broad is getting all the attention this Ashes, 1st for his sportsmanship and now for his tactics. Guess he will be having a hard time when England travel to Australia for Down Under.
