Nah, you had to have exactly the right personnel, who could bowl quickly and accurately. TBH to say it's not that complicated, is fairly easy, but most Seam bowlers plans aren't rocket science. It's about knowing the plan will work, having strength in your convictions and executing it perfectly. All done well, and to beat that Aussie side it was brilliant, IMHO.
