    Wow, taking a lot from the tour matches it seems.

    This is gold. The less time the poms can spend out in the middle, the better for us. Hopefully they will get rolled in all the tour matches.

    Isn't that the same kind of logic being applied to our team?

    EDIT: Another one! 7/117...

    EDIT2: Broad off the mark with an edge through the legs of slip.

    Obviously just a tour match, but nice to see the poms battling already. Long may it continue.

    Anyone know how the batsmen got out? Most look like caught behinds, unless North doesn't field at slips

    They are.

    Not the ideal hit-out for the English batters but reckon the main thing would be for KP to get runs and get comfortably back into the team set-up.

    North has taken some great catches at gully apparently.

    Yeah, they are. Hogan's not terrible but Magoffin was coming back from injury (and got re-injured) and the rest of the attack is fresh out of grade cricket (admittedly Beer dominated grade cricket, but still). Probably shouldn't read too much into tour games but WA are dire so this is worrying for England.

    I'm tending towards this. All the rhetoric about going into these tour games at full strength is lost when you're still coming to terms with the conditions and really just gearing up for tests. I'm expecting a tougher time to be given to the Redbacks.

    It is,would of been good to see him go on,but out of all the players who needed a decent knock it was KP.
