Results of Ashes series down under from 1990 onwards. Aus 3-0 Eng Aus 3 - 1 Eng Aus 3 - 1 Eng Aus 4 - 1 Eng Aus 5 - 0 Eng Aus 1 - 3 Eng Aus 5- 0 Eng The one series England won in this time was the best England side of its generation playing at its' peak against the worst Australian side of its generation and even then England had to wait until the final test to seal the series. I suppose if mugs keep buying tickets then the decision to increase the frequency of these series will be justified but it is all hype - the actual real competition is limited. Yesterday evening's session was rare in its intensity and evenness. Laughable to hear Root saying England will take positives from this test and go in good heart for the next test. I know it is compulsory for sports people to look on the bright side but I am wondering what he's on if he genuinely think that England have somehow turned a corner. It would have been refreshingly honest for him to say that England are shit and a series victory in Australia is merely a once in a generation event and we ain't due the next one until 2030.
