I think it had more to do with what was dished up than the conditions in which it was served.
I will go 342 at an average of 42.75
Notice how Adders went missing when the WA Second XI knocked up 450 but returned when England had a good day?
No doubt hoping for fair weather this summer.
Apparently it's wet and cold in Hobart this morning too. Dunno how much play they'll get.
He bowls to the left, he bowls to the right, but when he bowls at the stumps, he makes England look ****e!
My Modern Test XI (since 2000): AN Cook, GC Smith (c), HM Amla, KC Sangakkara (w), MJ Clarke, IR Bell, S Watson, GP Swann, VD Philander, DW Steyn, JM Anderson.
Harris is quality, was the best bowler in England. Siddle gives little away tbh, neither does Watson (assuming he's fit) and Lyon bowled fine in England. The only real issue is the third quick, which seems as though it will be Johnson, sadly.
Dougeh is bowling pretty well ATM, but I don't think they'll pick him. If they want to, they could do what they did last time - leave him in SA playing T20, let him get injured, tell him not to play pre Brisbane, don't play him there, give him one FC match before picking him for Adelaide with no bowling, fitness or form. Then dump him when he bowls ****.
I always welcome a review from CW's own Neville Cardus.
