And neither does England, but they will probably still get one.
And as the dust settles over Chittagong and the orange sun slides gently beneath the horizon, the half-arsed England fans say brusquely "I don't care about one day cricket anyway" while the true fans pat each other on the back and say "well, at least we have the Ashes", which is true to be fair (so I hear, anyway. I've blocked everything test cricket dating from November to January, so I'll need convincing).
The Aussies, however, are amused and somewhat relieved. Not because we were worried about meeting England again but because after the Ponting incident, the Indian newspaper allegations and the Warney's own very special Twitter-gate - it is nice to have someone focus on England instead. On the matter, I spoke with Andrew Strauss after today's match:
SID: What do you think about the match fixing allegations against England that have been reported by one newspaper?
AS: There haven't been any reports of match fixing or spot fixing.
SID: Really? I just assumed ...
AS: Well, if it were any other side, you would. But when it's England, the world just accepts that we're rubbish. There's no need for any such reports.
SID: Well, that sounds about right. Thanks, Andrew. Try not to steal any little urns on your way to the shower.
AS: I'll do my best, Sid.
And there you have it - right from the captain himself.
P.S. Apologies for the quietness. My laptop is being a bastard. And why are there such big gaps between our matches?
