England avoid series whitewash

At last England won a match and avoided a series whitewash after beating Australia by four wickets in the last match of the series.

I could see that England were so determined to avoid a series whitewash and when they won the toss it was not surprising to see them decide to field so that they could chase whatever total the tourists got.

For Australia only captain Ricky Ponting and Mike Hussey gave some resistance when the captain scored 53 runs and Hussey just missed half a century by one run.

I hope that next time there will be a triangular series instead of an unending seven match series. If there is no available third team then a five match series is good enough.

The next stop for both teams will be the ICC Champions Trophy being hosted by South Africa. I t think it is here where Australia's strength will be tested while England players have a chance to quickly redeem themselves after the 6-1 loss.
