Please - Germany just go 1-0 up and defend. Learn your national generalisations.

A third umpire call for a run out or stumping is a referral, not a review.

we got cucked by a decade of far left wing propaganda

our greatest ever tennis player was ostracised from public life and bullied by the media because she voted 'no' for homosexual marriage legislation

I think Australian cricket's "never say die" spirit is a myth.
Built up over decades.'
Yes, maybe Aussies are (or used to be) ingrained more with a spirit of not giving up than other folk, but I think it's been romanticised way beyond reality.
What happened to that spirit in Manchester 1956?
Or in the West Indies in 1983-84?
Or in more recent series in England, where they've performed poorly?
And in the sub-continent where they got drubbed?

Finally it's about how good a team you are anyway.
For example, look at India in this context.
Indian teams pre-1980s were weak anyway, so kept losing.
And against England, they had a colonial hangover to fight too - Gavaskar himself admitted that.
Australia had no such hangover - their history with England is very different from India's.
Most Aussies (not the indigenous population) anyway came over from Britain and settled in Australia.
So, in many ways, they were just relocated English folk.
And the competitive spirit, to beat those Poms who they had left behind in Britain, naturally came to the fore.

Australia and England got an early start in the game, had great cricket facilities.

West Indies, India and Pakistan started later - and had to get over the colonial hangover, apart from some catching up to do.
Each took its own time to do so.

what a deluded moron

"There's light at the end of the tunnel, there's no doubt about that," Langer said.

"There's been some great learning and some real positives that have come from this trip.

"On the surface it looks like a complete disaster but but we have talked about a team for the World Cup and the Ashes and I think we have unlocked a few answers.

Aussie sporting boards are like dictatorships in reality. Everybody looks after the dear leader and covers their own butts.
