the comments about eng being the only tired team out there is complete BOGUS.... i agree eng do play quite a lot, but so do most other big teams.... they are professional cricketers, its not like this is their side job!!! i would just admit that some ppl have lost form, and this team was never good enough to for a long enough period to form an invincible unit for a significant amount of time.... having said that, this eng team played extremely well for a couple of years and were a very good side during that time....

It also seems like a return to my youth - and I've been waiting for years for the Aussies to play like this again.
