    Why should it? Same name, same country.. everything else has changed. Including Anderson the bowler. He's not a semi-crippled, inexperienced, loose cannon anymore.

    You might as well criticise Tony Greig's medium pace bowling record in Australia while including his figures while bowling offices.

    I've really been impressed with the fast bowlers, they've kept it really tight and not given them many 4 balls. The work that David Saker's doing with them, really does seem to be paying off. The whole bowling unit, appears to have improved their accuracy.

    What, he's bowling left arm spin is he?

    Counts for nowt, you're right. Expecting Phil Hughes to automatically ton up massive next tour of England. His record there will mean nothing.

    I'll say it real slow.. Just for you..

    Four years later or not, he's innocuous when it doesn't swing. He bowled here before when it didn't swing. He was innocuous in 09 when it didn't swing. If it swings he is a good bowler. If it doesn't, he isn't. It usually doesn't here, as he found out four years ago.

    Calm down everyone. Stop taking each other so seriously FFS.

    TBH if I was England I would be less concerned about Anderson's record here last time than his record in the last half of 09. I have no idea why he was so horrible at Headingley, but he was - Ponting and Clarke took him to the cleaners.

    Exactly, you're missing the point..its not like Anderson lands in Perth and forgets how to bowl once he gets through border control. Its just hes still not great in unhelpful conditions TODAY not that he couldn't bowl in them 4 years ago with a crocked back, little experience and as a generally inferior bowlers than he is now.

    Phil Hughes tore up in County Cricket, his problem wasn't England... it was a well directed short ball.

    (y). Theres a lot to be said about Anderson's weaknesses, i just don't feel the 06/07 Ashes is one.. for reasons ive given.

    Arguing with teenagers is something I try to avoid, to retain my sanity and affable nature. Though I do think Anderson will bowl better this tour.

    Right. I'm off to play cricket. In the sun.

    Jimmy Anderson has pulled out due to unhelpful conditions.

    Enjoy the cold. Here's two bob, go buy a climate ffs.

    I don't think Burgey's saying that Anderson loses it in Australia - rather his bowling's relatively unsuited here. Hughes' problem iirc was down to the short ball, so only very good quicks would threaten him.

    5-0

    RIP Craig Walsh (Craig) 1985-2012

    Proudly supporting the #2 cricketer of all time.
