Match Notes

  • 'We have deserved the criticism'

    Stephen Fleming says his team must learn from this 'hiding' and called it a performance that would send 'tremors around the world'

  • A no-contest

    A wrestle marked down for 13 days dragged out November as New Zealand were squeezed and crushed by an outfit focussed on precision

  • A window to Adelaide's rich past

    At a ground steeped in tradition and in a city universally recognised for its intelligent planning, the Adelaide Oval's museum feels oddly out of place

  • 'We achieved what we wanted to achieve'

    Ricky Ponting was particularly happy with his bowlers during the two-Test series but was disappointed with the analysis of his declaration in the second innings at Adelaide
