Here's a question: what batsman and bowler from the opposition do you fear most going into this series? For me it would be Anderson and Trott.
Pattinson and Clarke. If I was Australian it would probably be Anderson and Pietersen.

I fear more the slow, attritional kind of batting that players like Trott and Cook are so good at. Feel it's more likely to bring our bowlers down than someone like Pietersen who always makes you feel like you've got a chance.
Somerset slumped from 303/3 to 320 all out, with 5 ducks in a row. I've never seen 5 ducks in a row before which could be some kind of record.

1. Len Hutton - 2. Sunil Gavaskar - 3. Don Bradman - 4. Viv Richards - 5. Jacques Kallis - 6. Garry Sobers - 7. Adam Gilchrist - 8. Richard Hadlee - 9. Shane Warne - 10. Malcolm Marshall - 11. Sydney Barnes
Clarke at 3 or 4 against a newish moving ball will be all kinds of fail.
Pietersen and Anderson. Shout out to Cook too. IMO KP is the best English batsman since Gower or Gooch. He's devastating. Cook is rapidly becoming a ****ing annoyance to me though.
