England Team At The Adelaide Oval

ME Trescothick

MP Vaughan


N Hussain (c)

MA Butcher

AJ Stewart (wk)

C White

RKJ Dawson

AR Caddick

MJ Hoggard

SJ Harmison

This was genuinely our team 11 years ago. It looks stronger than it was as Hoggard was yet to develop proper control and Harmison was nothing like established as an international bowler yet. Alec Stewart was past his peak and didn’t make many runs as a ‘keeper anyway. To make matters worse, Australia’s side included Langer, Hayden, SWaugh, Martyn, Gilchrist, Ponting, Lehmann, Warne, McGrath, Gillespie and Bichel.

England lost by an innings and 51 runs after their opening batsman made 177 in the first innings.

Life isn’t so bad…

About wrongunatlongon

I'll muse on various subjects, mainly involving willow, leather and grass. My natural instincts is to heap as many compound adjectives as I can to sporting natterings. If you like, then feel free to link :)
