    Funny you should say that, because the Aussies here seem to have presumed Swann to be a poorer batsman than he is because he always bats at 9 for England.

    I'm not watching, but from Cricinfo's scorecard (that's all they're providing) it seems that Hilfenhaus is outbowling Lee.

    It doesn't seem to be working for me either. According to Cricinfo, they are playing, and it says on the side:

    This commentary is available in Real Player only. If there is no commentary playing out, it could be due to a break in play.

    I thought I had Real Player, downloading it now just in case.

    The embedded player doesn't work for me but the standalone link does. I just opened this in VLC. It cuts out every five minutes or so but I just restart it and it's fine. Slightly annoying but meh.

    I wonder if the Australians will do what they have, allegedly, done several times before, and let some journeyman look good to try to play him into the England side?

    So if Luke Wright makes runs today don't be surprised and don't take it at face value!

    Yeah, I have noticed that too, for a tailender he seems to have a pretty sound technique, if you look closely at him while batting, his trigger movements are pretty similar to Watto, and if he works on his batting a bit more, than he could turn himself into a pretty good lower order bat.

    I don't really agree with this. If he already has a good technique and isn't scoring many runs the prospects for improvement aren't great. Whereas with someone like Swann who scores a lot of runs with an allegedly less-than-watertight technique, there's always room for improvement if you can help the technical side of his game.

    In any case, i don't think Swann's technique is any worse than Hauritz's anyway. He just has another way of playing aside from the orthodox. Same thoughts as with Johnson vs. Broad, their techniques are really at a similar level but because Johnson can hit out when he needs to the myth develops that Broad is a bit more technically perfect.
