Shane Warne, celebrating his 700th wicket
Whilst the present Ashes series has been pretty painful to follow as an England supporter, I was very pleased to see Shane Warne gain his 700th scalp in Test cricket. It is a rare privilege to watch a player of his calibre, even when his heroics are achieved at our expense. It will be a shame to see Warne (and McGrath) leave. Nevertheless, despite my great admiration, I will still begrudge them having an Ashes whitewash of England as their sending off.
