The speed at which a fielding team gets through the innings is overrated.
Jeff Thomson still looks very cool. I can't believe he's almost 60!
Don't think Anderson has been good enough in Test cricket either.
It's fine if you were thinking there's more to come from this guy, but I don't see it with Anderson. I think this is about as good as he's going to get - an ambitious team would be looking for more than a guy who's averaging 30+ and vanishes for most of the game/series. He's more squad player quality.
Watson would be a very dangerous batsman if he didn't just brainlessly slog/swipe at the bowling. He can basically score faster than the other bats without doing anything like that.
Boooooring, Watto out trying to get the run-rate up.
Pretty poor from Paine, that.
Pretty poor stuff. Get ready for some test cricket for the next 10-25 overs if they stay in that long.
After that it's just a case of having a look at whichever promising players in county cricket.
Edit: He would still be in the squad, but you've got to be looking at other options because for me you can't just 'settle' for Anderson if you want to be a good side.

Lol at Watson getting himself in and then getting out again. Bit of a problem for him now; I count that as every innings of the tour he's done it in.
Heads, Shoulders, Knees, John Stones
Australia is rewinding to the 80s where scores of 200 were good enough to win games. Talk about living in the past, these guys are batting as if we have Warne, Murali and McGrath to get us home with the ball.
Go Luke Wright
This Aussie batting line-up is missing Ponting so badly.
Finally, Clarke out.
Fergie century pl0cks.
