England played one more match than Australia in the World Cup and had the same lead up and focus. Australia are dominating the Ashes because they’re a far superior team.

Was the English World Cup win the best thing for Australian cricket?

He’s had a Wilson.

Is this the most bizarre bunker overrule of the season?

Wilson’s performance in the First Test was so outrageously incompetent that he should not have been standing in this match. There was always a risk of this happening.
