Australian cricketers finally got one over England this summer, only it was on the track rather than at the crease.
Shaun Tait, Dirk Nannes and Damien Martyn emerged triumphant over England's trio of James Anderson, Ian Bell and Jonathan Trott at Jaguar Proving Ground in Warwickshire.
After England went 2-0 up with their 347-run trouncing of Australia at Lord's, and as he anticipates the prospect of completing a third successive Ashes series win on his home ground at Old Trafford next week, fast bowler Anderson has broken ranks.
Australia finally got one over England
The tourists pushed England hard in the first Test at Trent Bridge, where a tireless Anderson had to bowl 13 consecutive overs on the final morning and ended up taking Australia's last four wickets to hold on by 14 runs to take a 1-0 lead.
It was a very different story at Lord's, though, where England wrapped up victory on the fourth day. And though Anderson still expects Australia to show plenty more fight, he has no time for those who have begun to feel sorry for Michael Clarke's team.
"I don't really feel any sympathy," Anderson said.
"We want to win the series 5-0, so we will be doing everything we can in each game to win."
