4-0 :(

Australia win the Fourth Test inside 3 days allegedly by stealing our bowling plans. Not that it would have mattered, given the abject batting performance. Biggest Barmy Army cheers of the day were apparently for tailender Monty Panesar cracking both Lee and Warne through midwicket for four and also the announcement that he had won the 2006 Beard Of The Year award:

But another hugely disappointing England performance. Why not bring the team home early and save us the misery of a whitewash? Gah.

England, 1st innings: 159 all out (74.2 overs)
Australia, 1st innings: 419 all out (108.3 overs)
England, 2nd innings: 161 all out (65.5 overs)

Australia beat England by an innings and 99 runs


  1. If I can find an airtight box small enough, I shall send you a piece of christmas cake to make you feel better.

  2. Thank you. Although you should be aware that I shall be forced to treat the marzipan with the disdain the Australian batsmen showed our big gay pace attack ;)

  3. Well, what better way to celebrate the death of English cricket?

    Perhaps the English test side would like to play the Relishers this summer.

  4. I shall write to the ECB at once! We may have to put out a weakened side though...
