    Specifically on whom? Definitely tried to take a positive spin as, to me, being really negative, no matter how correct, just isn't much fun to read but I'd definitely be interested to know who you reckon I took it easy on.

    In fairness, I knocked it together in an hour or so and didn't see any of day 5 yesterday so might have been a bit more scathing had I not been at band practice. haha

    More in the scores in general, especially in comparison to GIMH.

    But Johnson has been a four for me, even if he has taken wickets, he's given England momentum most of the times that he's bowled, and hasn't struck early in a spell yet once that I can remember.

    Reckon that Ponting has been better than Katich, would have given Katich a 7. Got "in" during the first innings at Lords and got himself out.

    Would you rate a player higher for getting out early than you would for getting in then getting out?

    In any case, their roles were reversed for the second innings, so they have one big one, one failure and one in-and-out each.

    Generally, yeah. Of course guys are going to be easier to get out early, and sometimes you'll fail. Its how much you make it hurt when you get in that counts.

    Sanga isn't the best off spinner in the history of cricket? News to me.

    There's being vulnerable early, and then there's being vulnerable early.

    Well yeah. I'd still rather a player score 40 runs than score none at all though. Much better to be an Alastair Cook than a Chris Martin.

    Katich gave it away in both innings' at Lord's though, and Ponting at least was got out in the first-innings. I tend to judge a batsman on whether he got himself out or whether he was got out, not on some stereotype that says it's always easier to get out on 3 than 33. A bad shot is a bad shot, and good bowling is good bowling, however many the batsman has. I'd give a batsman far more grief for getting out to a shocking shot on 2 than I would for receiving one that pitched leg and hit off on 41.
