England's future stands up

Yesterday Broad cut the heart out of Australia, today Trott banged a big nail in the coffin. Despite a show of guts from Watson and Katich at the start of Australia's second innings, surely the tourists are done. So barring a miracle, Strauss should be lifting the urn sometime late tomorrow or early Monday morning. Fred went out in typical big-hitting fashion, but he's been pretty anonymous in his final test. Interesting that it's been England's new generation making all the headlines - Trott, Broad and Swann. Long may it continue.


  1. It might not be more significant, but is this a better triumph than in 05? Or were England just lucky at the right times?

  2. '05 was unique! It was the long waited victory after years and years of loss from English side. You could call them lucky this time round but only for winning the toss.
    PS. I am no cricketer so my opinion worth somewhere close to nothing anyway, but that's how I feel. I didn't get so excited this time round, still loved the fact that England won.
