    Two points.
    Sachin Tendulkar's front foot/bat swing timing for balls out off stump was superb to watch. A good example of their findings. What I found interesting is the point about the size reduction in bat width. Bradman famously used a stump to practice against a water tank. Did this not help him and he was just a super human batting freak, or is he an exception?
    Never mind Bill, not over.......yet.

    Agreed. At risk of stating the obvious, surely more control is achieved by hitting with the centre of the bat. Again, it seems obvious that practicing with a narrower bat (or stump per the Don) will teach 'centering'. Presumably a follow-up study might look at this in greater detail.

    Cheers

    Hi Deka, and all other readers in Aussieland. Well, it is over now - you swines! Congratulations (spit). Congratulations to Mitchell Johnson in particular, he didn't look too destructive in England but with the harder pitches downunder he really came to the fore.

    We'll get you next time.

    Ashes to Ashes, dust to dust........ I'm going away to cry into my ale (that's real beer to you).

    Cheers

    Pommie Bastard Bill.

    God dang, I forgot how bloody good it feels. So many emotions. I do believe I walked a little taller on the way home this afternoon. I would love to rub it in Bill, but you are just too damned amiable. I need to find an a-hole pom to sink it into.
    Bahhh, I'll just content myself to bask in our glory that has been so lacking (across a lot of sports) over the last few years.
    Cheers Bill

    Feel free Dek - my shoulders are Broad (ouch).

    Anyway, I hate all you colonials and you never truly understood the game. I recall when Lilee and Thompson were making splinters out of English wickets and the Aussie crowd held up banners saying charming things things such as 'kill 'em', and 'smash their heads in Den', a couple of English supporters held up a large banner simply stating 'Australians can't play cricket'. This is because we are prone to understatement as educated gentlemen, which qualifications Australians cannot lay claim to.

    There, that should raise your ire and persuade you that I'm not amiable. I look forward to your doubtless triumphalist reply!

    Cheers

    Bill

    Sarcasm is the lowest form of wit, and you are not even an Aussie anyway!

    I'm off to drown my sorrows.

    Cheers

    Well, there you have it.

    If you play a team which bats better than you, bowls better than you, fields better than you, plans better than you and works harder than you, there is a strong likelihood that you'll lose!

    Anyway, reluctant respect for the Aussies who simply played out of their skins, and back to the drawing board.
