    My thoughts too, always great to win but winning tough is even sweeter.

    The tour of South Africa should be a belter, just as it was last time.

    Remember, pre-series Rob 'pie eater' Key described Josh Hazlewood as 'a poor mans Jimmy Anderson'.

    Ha.

    JOE ROOT — 2

    20 and 14

    When luck’s not going your way, you find ways of getting out. Well, Root did just that in the first-innings after being caught down the leg side for 20. His dismissal left England in danger of being bowled out for 200. In the field, the England captain appeared distracted as he was nearly struck by a Usman Khawaja edge, which flew past Root before he had time to react. His Test then went from bad to worse in the second-innings, as he carelessly attempted a drive off Nathan Lyon’s first ball and was caught at first slip by Steve Smith.

    STUART BROAD — 2

    0-142

    12 and 0

    He and new-ball partner James Anderson entered the history books as the most successful fast-bowling partnership in Test cricket overtaking Courtney Walsh and Curtley Ambrose, as the former took two quick wickets early on day four. Anderson finished with 4-116 — all four poles on day four. Broad on the other hand, finished with the 12th worst bowling figures in the history of Test cricket as he went for 0-142 from 35 overs. England needed Broad to fire and extract some bounce from the WACA wicket. He didn’t and England suffered as a result, as the tall right-arm quick dished up pie after pie.

    Root is just another Pommy captain who'll step down and play on.

    He looks broken, and Broad looks like he couldn’t give a f**k.

    Root will be fine, too soon to be captain and with Cook offering little and no Stokes he's feeling it. And remember Australia is the hardest place to tour, without any doubt

    A pity that Broad and Anderson have taken that mantle from Ambrose and Walsh.... when you look at the former pair based on a lot of what they have done on these shores, it seems incongruous that they would be above Ambrose and Walsh in any records or conversations.... I guess longevity is a kind of record on its own, but at least Ambrose and Walsh ALWAYS made you work... ALWAYS.....

    Broad looks to be going the way of Gillespie in 05.

    They aren’t fit to do up Ambrose and Walsh’s bootlaces.

    Australia a hard place to tour?
    Imagine India
    Stinking hot
    Big chance of getting crook

    Australia should be a paradise in comparison.

    Having a dump in Australia:
    Sitting on a porcelian toilet in privacy with Kleenex Cottonelle dunny paper.

    Having a dump in India:
    Squatting over a hole while you hold a bucket for your spew.
    Use hand to wipe.
