Regardless of the calls for Warnie to come out of retirement have fallen on deaf ears, the Australian team look like suffering the worst defeat in our proud history.
Watching the team bundled out for 98 and the war cry's from the Balmy Army was all too much as up to 30,000 people left at tea time Day 1.
Why do they leave the Cricket early, but never leave their AFL team ? Why the difference ?
You have to feel for Ponting, he is unlikely to have a S. Waugh type of send off, which is a tragedy.
It seems that Dean Jones may be right, have we bred a new breed of Australian cricketer that is soft ? Where is the aggro and mental toughness ?
Bring back Boonie and Merv !
