Sydney Day Four: Goodbye, farewell, amen, and John did you drop something?

Not since the Harlem Globetrotters last beat the Washington Generals has a foregone sporting conclusion been so rapturously and emotionally received by a sell-out crowd.

All over by lunchtime. Australia 5, England 0. Warne 708, McGrath 563, Langer 7698, Buchanan 68-11-10. Lots to reflect upon and digest, but that will have to wait for this evening.

My final daily votes for the Midwinter-Midwinter, a short day so less votes than normal: Glenn McGrath 2 pts, Brett Lee 1 pt. Shane Warne has won the title for the second and last time with 16 points, six clear of equal runners-up Ricky Ponting, Stuart Clark and Glenn McGrath.
