SO, quite a day really, in terms of batting this shows the differance between the two sides, Australia have Lord Hussey as their rock, with Watson and Haddin supporting. Watson good but no game changer, Haddins fantastic but throws it away when he gets in, Hussey is Mr Cricket and has only failed once this series, but when he did, Aus whent all out for 98. Also the tail might wag
England on the other hand currently have 5 top batsmen in good nick, two out of touch but one of thems on 75, and he’s Matt Prior so clearly it’s his wicket keeping thats important. And Collingwood? Guy could just be too old, firefighter with no fires to fight, shouldn’t be batting above Bell, those catches are still absoulutley great but we have Eoin Morgan to start blooding in to tests, an if we want no.1. Another class batsmen is needed. Anyway, Englands top order contains seven centurions, so can take a number of cheap wickets, unlike Australia, who seem to have only three working batsmen.
Aberation of Perth aside when we had 7 wallys I’d say it’s the batting thats really made the differance this series. Two disciplined bowling attacks, except the conditions don’t suit England, an the Aussies are generally clearing up after the tripe their batsmens left them, apart from that, it’s simply been Englands batting, an the preassures of specific match situations that see the England attack taking the wickets when needed. Oh an England feild mutch better, that I think we can all agree on.
