At 12.18 pm today, Australia continued their dominance of world cricket by defeating England with ten wickets in hand to complete a 5 – 0 series “whitewash” in this year’s Ashes cricket series.
What can be said about a team that has won their last 12 (that’s TWELVE) Tests in a row? No doubt there will be cricket aficionados and commentators with far more knowledge about the game and its history than I possess that will be able to deliver fitting tributes to the Australian Test cricket team of 2006/2007. However, as a proud Australian I would like to congratulate the team on a brilliant series. They never let up, and even when they knew England were on the ropes, the Australians kept the pressure on. Their demolition of the English cricket team, and its attempt to defend and retain the Ashes trophy they so narrowly won in 2005, has been a marvel to watch and a demonstration of the awesome professionalism of the Australians.
Can I wrap it up with a piece of true Aussie vernacular? I hope so. To the Australian cricket team, their coaches and their management – “Strewth, you blokes are bewdies”
Bring on the One Day Internationals…
C’mon Aussie, c’mon, c’mon….
