In retrospect, England have a pretty weak bowling attack, so unless he averages under 30 then this series shouldn't affect his potential alltime status considering he destroyed a hostile South African pace attack in bowler-friendly conditions just a few months ago.
there were enough pies at the other end to keep the pressure off. Onions or Flintoff can bowl a negative line whilst they bounce him from the other end. He played ****house in the first innings not even looking like punishing a half-volley, whereas in SA anything on his leg side he was hitting for 4, England can just throw out a leg side sweeper if he has two main scoring areas, whereas SA didn't because they didn't have a decent plan against him.
