Whitewash Misery

It’s over. What started so promisingly on November 26th has finished in unparalleled humiliation in Sydney on January 5th. Outplayed in every department.

But it is a long way back from here. I listened until Tea, I really wanted Carberry to stick around, but once we’d lost 3 wickets in ten balls after the tea break, we were never going to take it beyond three days.

So, 5-0. Turn the page and enjoy your Sunday, 2015 will be round soon enough. Move on soldiers, forget what’s been, swagger on into horizons new.
