Fair play, England were too good

England celebrate the wicket of Michael Beer, and the commencement of the longest night of their lives..

It may pain some to read this, but the reality is that a very good, extremely well-drilled England side have cleaned up Australia by an innings and plenty in the last Ashes Test in Sydney.

The English fans flooded the SCG as the gates opened, and some may even still be partying as you read this (maybe even weeks later, for those reviewing my tour).  It’s fair to say they’re all pretty happy with what they’ve achieved.

My wrap-up of England’s 5th Test, and Ashes Series win, is over at The Roar: http://www.theroar.com.au/2011/01/08/fair-play-to-you-england-you-were-far-too-good/
