England beat Australia at cricket – no perfect summer for the Cricketroos

wow 89 days in 5 tests and a bucketful of ODIs and England finally beat the aussies, lets get the bus out !! :)  – I can’t help thinking it’s a trap so they can get England in the final and properly humiliate us :(

the truth is we’ve been absolutely outclassed the aussies are far and away the best team in the world, we’ve  got no bite, an attack that’s probably good for 15 wickets a game and batsmen that can’t learn from their mistakes.

Joyce got a century though hurrah

a shame I’d have loved to have rubbed McGit’s nose in it

here’s the scorecard for those of you that can’t get to the BBC

 

England beat Australia by 92 runs

England won the toss and decided to bat
