HAA..come on now. You & T_C cant be serious here.
That was well calculated sweep reverse -sweep. Just simply brillaint batting. KP was wayyyy past his hundred when he played that shot as well.
No comparison to his brain failure shots vs Hauritz @ Cardiff & Benn @ Kingston.

You forgetting the Adelaide test vs WI.
Plus in the NZ series. The Hamiltion 4th innings where Johnson took 6, the conditons wasn't really turning that much. AUS make 500 odd batting 3rd & Vettori/Patel wasn't getting much turn. Pitch played very well for 5 days - Johnson just bowled superbly & was getting unusual extra bounce on that 5th day wicket.
The deteriorating wicket was the 1st test in Wellington, where Hauritz bowled 49 overs accurate but unpenetrative overs.
