Tom Curran has ended up with the best batting average (63) and 2nd best bowling average (13 wkts at 24.53) of the entire England team across all FC, LA and T20 matches of the tour so far :D

"This new Perth Stadium is..in one word..classy."

Yes it probably is, but is it Brisbane, Melbourne, or Perth..?? They all look almost the same!

Good one day series win there. Many sides would have rolled over after the Ashes thrashing. But as Michael Vaughan said in the Telegragh, it shows where England's focus is at, & that isnt Test Cricket. There will be some serious faces if we dont win the 2019 one day World Cup.

We've seen one massive Ashes selection clanger confirmed now, Rashid is the only bowler to have troubled Smith, so why on earth did we select Crane..???

Tom Curran certainly deserves credits, played well & positively in the Tests & one day. Think we have to give these guys a chance now. He could be the first of many & that would be delightful to see.

Looking forward to the NZ section now.

God this down under cricket makes our dismal winter much more bearable. Really love it whatever the score!!

Brisbane is the one which looks someone threw up on all the seats.

Well everybody knew even before the series started that Ali would struggle. And yes Crane was a joke selection. I’m assuming one of the selectors ran over his cat and owed him a favour or something
