    I mean against a semi-decent pace attack, England are not.

    Just about every batsman is more vulnerable when the ball is moving and bouncing. Hayden would have to be absolutely extraordinary or even beyond that to be exempt. He's scored runs in difficult conditions before, but it's blatantly obvious that he has a weakness against the moving ball. It doesn't make him a bad batsman though. Every batsman has weaknesses.
    Sreesanth said, "Next ball he was beaten and I said, 'is this the King Charles Lara? Who is this impostor, moving around nervously? I should have kept my mouth shut for the next ball - mind you, it was a length ball - Lara just pulled it over the church beyond the boundary! He is a true legend."

    Nice try - although it could seen as using a double deflective simile to renounce your membership of the gullable pratt club.................or the other hand. Who Cares? No one!
    Exactly.

    Well of course he's vulnerable when the ball is seaming and bouncing - name a player in the history of the game who hasn't been. Some handle it better than others, but everyone's vulnerable to it. He's been the dominant opener in world cricket for over half a decade - he struggled in England last year but has scored runs virtually everywhere else. He's nearing the end but he's been quality for a long time.

    Of course, I'm not doubting his skill one bit, but he seems to be more susceptable to the seaming ball than most, escpecially as an opener.
