Not much of an issue to be honest, if everyone in the team makes 80 it's a decent total imo

It is a relevant subject for discussion in the context of post-Ashes Antipodean head scratching...

"Awww Jeez mate, look, yeah, no - we scored more hundreds...."

Now that you can't seem to convert, suddenly it's "no problem", and "No I in team". There are also no Ashes in Australia (not that there ever is) :p

Have you got any actual quotes?

Lots of press coverage that I could dig out to demonstrate Antipodean navel-gazing, but I'm too busy laughing at the "the current series is all Australians care about". That's just priceless :^0 :^0 :^0

I remember punter making a very minor comment in the post match interview, but generally he just said fair play to us for winning. And tbf the result did flatter us just like when we lost in windies the result flattered the windies.

Most aussies took it on the chin or turned on their own players, particularly punter, from my recollection.

Same as what?

Same as Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide etc...playing under lights for a start. Still, looks like Strauss might land one here (cue dismissal ;) )

You might want to look what happened when the Aussies played here earlier this year then if we are looking at comparing apples with apples and individual centuries are some sort of yardstick.

For that to be relevant, I think i'd want to know the prevailing weather conditions.

Very similar from memory, except Australia didn't get the advantage of a wet ball.

The SA first innings might give you a clue as well. ;)

Just a little preturbed that you are suddenly comparing yourselves against the English. Aussies are the self-proclaimed "Alpha Males", with huge mental strengh; in all respects, they are so much better than us.

That's true, nice of you to say.

Hello Watson, this is interesting.......it seems we last saw the anomoly of an English born player making a test hundred for England a little while back now. Seven matches in fact. Whilst Australian rookie reserve Phil Hughes alone has made two centuries in his last four tests.

Does this mean an overlooked Australian has more mental strength than the whole English born cricketing population combined?

Those evil Australians seem to have set out deliberately to prove the irrelevance of indivdual batsmen making centuries by losing the Ashes series whilst compiling many individual centuries, then winning subsequent series whilst ensuring no individual batsman makes over 100 runs in an innings.

Are England now sufficiently laughable that the Ashes now means so little to our Antipodeon friends? Are they now completely indifferent towards the very thing we have long coveted?

This plan appears evil yet brilliant Watson, genius in its simplicity, and brutal in its execution. If this is allowed to continue it will render pointless at once years of English obsession with individual milestones.

I do not exaggerate when I tell you the very notion of the pretence of English adequacy is under threat here. We must get to the bottom of this sinister business Watson. If somebody has deleted the albeit limited mental strength of every English born cricketer, as of 7 test matches ago, this could have diabolical consequences. Why, for a start, it could lead to the humiliation of having our enemies realise Messers Bell, Collingwood and Cook, are the best English born players available to us. Yes Watson, it is that serious.

Not even Moriarty could have devised a more hideous plan. The game is afoot Watson!
