    Pietersen didn't rate Warne or Murali either obviously.

    It really is, the whole point is not letting him settle because if he does he can start dictating. KP would rather face pace when he starts off so he tries to force Clarke's hand. It's how orthodox off spin bowling should be played.

    Yeah, I always find round the wicket offies easy to charge. Less likely to fall over to the off when hitting over the top.

    When KP returns he will be the banana..

    Well if Clarke has any wits about him he'll keep him on for some time, because Pietersen has already badly miscued two shots.

    I have just opened up statsguru wicket takers list for the first time tonight, so cmon Siddle.

    Over 0.2: Putland to Nevill, OUT, no run, full ball swings in late to crash into his pads. Nevill is almost falling over trying to get bat on it but can't. Huge shout for LBW and Umpire Martell eventually raises the finger! P.Nevill - lbw b:Putland 0 (1 ball, 1 minute).

    Slow pitch, anything around 350-400 is a good first dig score I think

    The idea that one five wicket haul discounts all technical analyses is the worst habit in cricket watching circles. It basically nullifies any need to watch the cricket.

    This isn't even getting to your idea that Sehwag just scores runs "somehow" without there being a reason for it, which is absurd.

    Nah, he just slog swept them with immense regularity and even had the audacity to switch hit Murali. KP is an aggressive batsman who likes to dominate spin, particularly early on.

    I think it would be a good bowling effort to dismiss England for anything under 350.

    Similar when someone discounts the quality of someone's bowling because they didn't take 5. It's a benchmark for a reason but it's not the dichotomous arbiter of good/bad bowling people treat it as.
