    Yeah Anderson was the pick of the Poms with the ball. He was the only one offering any real threat.

    Only problem was they needed someone who could take wickets, Clouderson should have attacked the batsmen more and taken them on. If he bowls like that for the rest of the series as a strike bowler then I'm happy.

    Attacked them more how? Given them a whole lot of half volleys? He doesn't have a brilliant short ball or anything. The way he bowled was perfectly fine in the conditions. He beat the bat often enough too. There was simply no pressure when the batsmen only had to wait for a bowling change in a few overs to get runs.

    Anderson and Broad were comfortably England's best players in this Test. Did everything that could have been reasonably asked for them; the lack of support they had from the other bowlers and, at times, the captain wasn't their fault.

    who's going to make the violins?

    That does not mean they bowled well, FFS they only took ten wickets for the match and clouderson only took 2/77. dismal. You dont get anything for beating the bat.

    Easily could've had more wickets but they both needed Ball and Woakes to be less rubbish.

    The same could be said of Ball and Woaks, they need better leading bowlers to inflict a bit of damage first. If your strike bowlers cant make inroads then why expect your back up bowlers to do their job.

    What in the second innings, they looked beaten. It was a capitulation, a no show, gutless bowling, surrender, if it was good bowling in the second innings then Warner would easily rate an 8 dont you think.

    Just a quirky stat, Clouderson has never taken a fourth innings wicket in Australia from 5 attempts.

    You sound like you didn't actually watch the match.

    If you feel that Anderson and Broad bowled well in the match, not just compared to the other england bowlers but stand alone bowlers then we just came to different conclusions.

    This is what happens when you only pay attention to scorecards.

    They bowled quite well early in the 2nd innings, there were at least 2 or 3 play and misses. Terrible field placings didn't help either.

    How many test match innings have you watched where there wasnt a couple of plays and misses.
