First Aussie 5-0 whitewash overseas in 11 years. Well done lads. A fantastic series and awesome for their confidence for the WC. Maxi, Finch and Khawaja impressive with the bat. Zampa impressed with the ball.
In other news Warner smashed 100no in the IPL, are the selectors going to find a spot for him and Smith?

Excellent article. A lot of truths about Aussie masculinity and ideology. As a junior coach I'm bucking the sledging trend. I don't allow it. It's funny how some parents are aghast...it's banter, it's psychological, it's keeping everyone up. Sorry we don't do it other than a well bowled, good fielding. Funny how a lot of other parents quietly tell you they like what I do with the kids...they respect them more not being mouthy. We played a game where some things were said and a week later the team thought they'd mimic it. Ha! Lasted one ball and they got told no. Firmly. Not another peep.

Agree with Warner. Away from field he's lovely, friendly and a good conversationalist. On field. ..well...the behaviours just aren't needed.

Australia needs to take a good look at itself tbh. Stop the hypocrisy and blatant poor sportsmanship.

Had to wryly chuckle about Trott though. He was a gobby fella who got a dose of his own medicine.

Who hit the most boundaries? Seriously? What a disgraceful way to win/end a world cup. If they want to use a count back system then use wickets lost which i think is more important than boundaries hit. England had no wickets left at the end of their innings, NZ were only 8 down. NZ have every right to be pi55ed off at that result.

It was just gutting. England did nothing wrong, we had some bad luck, we did the wrong things at the wrong times, some umpire decisions that didn’t go our way and some rules would best described as relatable to back yard cricket......but those are the breaks and it’s back to the drawing board.

I'm hoping they revisit the rules around this.... Bit of a sh*t for it to be decided the way it was.. On the plus side, the gals are serving it up to the Poms and have the ashes tucked under the belt!! Now for a series whitewash!!!

One of the great clashes between old dog Smith and newbie Joffra, but shocking display of contempt and unsportsmanlike behaviour to walk away after knocking the crappers out of Smith in the head/neck... At least decency shown by other pommy players to get in around smith in the deck....
