Ye Gods. What does it take to make the Aussies lie down and admit defeat?
A whole generation of cricketers came and went without tasting real success against the Aussies. In no particulary order, try this lot: Fraser, Smith, Russell, Atherton, Smith, Hussein, Lewis, Ramprakash, Such, Bicknel, De Freitas, Stewart, Malcolm, Foster, Thorpe, the Worcestershire batsman who has scored over 100 centuries and whose name now escapes me, to name but those I can remember.
I never thought I would say this but; I wish this series would end. I do not think my blood pressure will stand another close finish like those of the last 3 tests.
Against any normal side, I could look forward to the final match, knowing that the opposition would crumble against the kind of pressure England have exerted against Aussie. Trouble is, Aussie doesn't know the meaning of the term, "Lie down and die". Anybody with a potion to nobble Warne?
