Dead Cat, I think I agree with Cumbrian rather than your take. Australia has been the better team for 75% of the time (not saying they are a good team by any means). Your post is littered with "ifs" rather slanted one way. If England has more time they could have won, if England had batted the time they deserved a draw, if (Australia) is dependent on one player you don't deserve to win.

Anyway, wouldn't be much of a series if we all agreed.

See Root has come out and said his team can be proud of the determination etc they showed. It may just be a "Rally round the flag" speech (although not exactly Henry V stuff) but his team has been bowled out for under 200, losing 8 wickets for 170.
