Sydney: While Australians rejoice at their cricket team`s rise like a phoenix from the Ashes with a second Test win in Adelaide, the English are burying themselves in gloom as evidenced by reports in the British media.
According to the Sydney Morning Herald, only a few months ago, the British media were offering mild condolences to Australia following England`s victory in the first Test.
Now, the teams` fortunes have done a U-turn, reflected in headlines such as mangled, shambles and bloodletting, the report said.
The Telegraph cried that England`s glory days were over while The Sun lamented that they have just been appalling in Australia.
The reports echo those in Australian newspapers only a few months ago, when the Australians were defeated for the seventh Test in a row, the report added.
