How Steve Smith even manages to get bat on ball amazes me. Every shot he makes in not one in the cricketing handbook.

Big deal its one Test match. Always judge an athlete/team over the long haul/their career. Nothing more nothing less.

Ace, what would happen to you, if on one day

- Steve Smith and Phil Hughes score a double tonne in the same same day

- The tigers win the NRL

- Clayton Richard throws a no hitter

Australia's weakness against a swinging / seaming ball is now well and truly beyond a joke. Always going hard at the ball, rather than playing late and straight.

Time to sack Justin Langer

England figured us out in 2005.

6 years later we're just as hopeless.

This Australian side has been pathetic for 2 years now.

Actually, I'll narrow it down to the top 6. They have bowled quite well for the most part, given the cattle.

I was talking about this with someone today. It's interesting that the development of Australian batsman have changed dramatically in the past 20 years. Before Aussie batsmen spent time playing county cricket. Guys like Hayden, Langer, the Waugh's, Lehman, Martyn etc surely must have benefited from their time there in those conditions

Doesn't happen anymore

There is alot more cricket played these days, players and teams getting more and more used to Australian conditions and become more comfrotable with them...Furthermore, overseas players playing in our domestic tournament, getting further used to our conditions....But more importantly, T20 comps mean that international players are practicing each other in the nets during camp and becoming more familiar with each other, that is why the gaps between international cricket are closing at a quick rate...

I disagree. In those 15 years when we dominated, most of the Australian test pitches were roads. Perth, Adelaide and Melbourne were all highways. Sydney had some life.

They pull out a green top in Hobart, and Brisbane too had some juice in it, and we fall in a heap. It has nothing to do with overseas players playing in our domestic comp.

This was Australia's 16th Test defeat since the beginning of 2008. Only West Indies and Bangladesh have lost more Tests during this period, though Australia's win-loss ratio is fourth during this period. These 16 losses have spanned 47 Tests, with Australia winning 21 of those. Australia's previous 16 defeats had spanned 118 matches, and they'd won 83 of those.

IT WAS THE BEST DAY OF THE YEAR FOR NZ SPORT. MUCH BETTER THAN WINNING THE RWC.
