I think Hawkesy will remember it for years to come, and remind you of it periodically.

Its history now, much like our 5-0 white washes. Still ranked higher and you're only as good as your last test. 8)

Not history - who are the current holders of the Ashes?

Not sure when the next home series is, but an Aussie could watch it in England having a beer knowing he wasn't born the last time Australia won in England.

Q1. Lords
Q2. Possibly, but consider also how many of the Barmy Army will be having a beer in Oz knowing they were lucky enough to have been around to see a 5-0 belting, and most even luckier to have seen two 5-0's!

Without a doubt a bowlers series as only four batsman scored over 400 runs and five centuries ( from three players) scored.

Indeed, well done Andrew Strauss, Paul Farbrace and all the back room staff who assisted this hugely talented young England squad, Also a big up to Rod Marsh and fatty Lehmann who it must be said played their part too. Roll on the ODIs

"Unapologetic paceman Jimmy Anderson has admitted England doctored pitches during their Ashes upset - and called for more of it in the future."

http://www.abc.net.au/news/2015-09-11/w ... it/6766900


Good to hear them admit it.

I note Bacon didn't quote the part where he says that every nation does it.

Call me what you want....but can you accept that you were wrong to dispute that an Englishman admitted to preparing doctored pitches?

Then he'd be wrong (that every nation does it). Refer several other of my posts that illustrate this.

I'm sure one did but you couldn't name him. Feel free to attempt to vindicate yourself now. You've had long enough to think about it.

You're a classic....

The relevant question isn't who it was said by....it whether or not the English doctored the pitches. What is important is the truth...not how it revealed itself.

Did the English doctor the pitches?

Why are you avoiding the question? Shall I take you out of my pocket before I wash my jeans?

Here's what he actually said so everyone can now make up there own minds. Pretty much what we have all been saying all along.

Quote:
Anderson denied that England captain Alastair Cook exerted undue influence on ground staff but said: “We should prepare pitches that suit us. We should have done it more in the past and we should do it more in the future.

When we go to Australia they prepare the pitches to suit their team and when we go to India the same thing happens. A big deal was made that we were telling the groundsmen to do this and that.

I’m sure an opinion was offered but we weren’t saying: ‘You have to prepare this or that’. But even if we did, everyone around the world prepares pitches to give them home advantage and I don’t see why it should be any different here."
