  1. all aussies like to watch aussies win so that is reflected in the ratings. It is a pity we have this half way review system when the truth is in the technology and mistakes can cost players millions. it is hard to find a current English player that would be anywhere in an aussie top eleven. — and stop the sledging, it is unnecessary when pure class speaks for itself.

    • “stop the sledging, it is unnecessary when pure class speaks for itself”. The Ashes has no “class” anymore. Just a bunch of yobbos now. Started watching it in 1958. Don’t watch a minute of it now.
