    Ashes 2015

    In my view the changing nature of Australian pitches is attributable to all of our test playing cricket grounds being completely overhauled - fresh soil, turf and watering systems being laid. More money spent on the technology to improve consistency. This coincided with the Warne era. It also coincided with the McGrath era, the Waugh era, the Hayden era, the big four of Indian batting, Brian Lara, the South Africans (who seam to beat us at home just as much as we beat them in SA). If there was a strategy to doctor the wickets to suit Australia, it seems to be a very piss poor effort. Don't get me wrong, I think Australian groundskeepers during the Warne era were empathic to the Australian teams - producing all round quality grounds that allowed the all round capabilities of the Australian team to flourish ... Most if not all Australian cricket pitches (pitch square) are now drop in. Little known fact during the Kerry Packer WSC was that Les Burdett pioneerd drop in pitches for Football Park, VFL Park and I think Royal Showgrounds in Sydney

    Ashes 2015

    Adelaide Oval has seen only 3 draws in the last 17 years, certainly Les Burdett has provided pitches good for the game as opposed to doctoring a wicket to suit the home team (or to limit the oppositions strengths) All great bowlers have prevailed in Adelaide, Garner, Holding, Marshall, Ambrose and Walsh from the West Indies, Lillee, Warne, McGrath and Gillespie from Australia, Allan Donald SAF, Sir Richard Hadlee NZ, Murali and other first rate bowlers who were prepared to do the hard work got/get results in Adelaide.
