Moved Warner to open
Moved Watson down to 6

How the **** is that a model to admire or follow?
You can't really blame Australia, our combinations aren't as set or as experienced as England's, selection has been strange, but ultimately it's the players that failed when they did, management not doing too badly I feel. While England are very stable with their system, it's the stubbornness of their on-field plans and combinations that I think they could improve upon, some more creativity needed IMO. At the end of it all though, I'd rather have the stability of England than the mess of Australia.
It's weird that we've outbowled England when it comes to bowling a dry, suffocating line with a packed field. A few years ago that was England's MO, they seem to have vaguely forgotten how to do it.
