    I do. He's always been like this to some extent, it's not totally a new problem by any stretch, but I do think it's more pronounced now. At his best Watson scored a lot of runs straight down the ground (as he does as I type this) and through straight midwicket. It's always a good sign when Watson's flick for four actually goes between midwicket and mid on rather than between midwicket and square leg; it's a real pointer to him batting well as it means his head is more or less over the ball at the point of contact. He hasn't hit the ball straight of midwicket with any regularity since the 2009/10 season really.

    Yeah wasn't expecting him to basically shoot Warne down in flames like that. Obviously the absolute hammerings doled out by Warne and co still smart all these years later.


    Watto looking imperious here, thank god it's just in time for this dead rubber.

    You reckon that's a Shane Watson plan or a Random Coach X plan? edit @b3nchmark

    The sort of general malaise that only the genius possess and the insane lament.

    Twatto looking worryingly good here. Gave that ball a good clobbering.

    Watson doing the trick here, both number 3 and 6 looking OK for him, good foil to Rogers
    There are two colours in my head

    Exactly my point PEWS. Its not only technique, its when he is trying to hit it straight/defend it straighter. CUT OUT the shots to Fine Leg Watto.

    Good knock from Watto. Glad he is off strike though.

    Well batted Twatto. What odds on him doubling it though?

    Yeah, that's the thing. I kinda think that cos he looks so good smashing some stuff off the stumps early, guys strayed away from it a bit. Whereas now they just try and hit him on the pads every ball.

    i remind everyone that the oval was the only english ground matt hayden scored a ton at
    Indians can't bowl - Where has the rumour come from as I myself and many indian friends arwe competent fast bowlers ?

    With the English bid I said: Let us be brief. If you give back the Falkland Islands, which belong to us, you will get my vote. They then became sad and left

    Nah it's his technique that dictates that. If he his isn't falling as far away across then it opens up the opportunity to play straighter.

    Absolute pie from Kerrigan. I really would have bowled a seamer.
