    Cowan's on borrowed time.

    Watson on the other hand looks fairly comfortable.

    Much easier batting conditions for the right hander as the pitch area around Cowan's off stump is a complete mess

    I don't think this pitch is unplayable at all, tbh. It's so slow that if you're really decisive with your footwork you really shouldn't have too many issues but that's the thing - you can't do what Watto just did, pushing forward at a length ball.

    tl;dr we're ****ed unless clarke bats for a day an a bit.

    That was not lack of concentration. Merely his inability to cope with the bowling/conditions and a desperate attempt to slog his way out of being made to look so inept. He has done it many times and he is not the only cricketer to do so. To suggest that those shots were a result of a lack of concentration is, strangely, both an attempt to explain away his deficiencies as a batsman as well as to run him down for not taking his responsibility and concentrating. It is neither. He just realised he was not able to cope and decided his next best option was to try and get a few with other methods.

    When wickets used to be uncovered and extremely difficult batting conditions would sometimes prevail, those who could not bat like Hobbs or Sutcliffe or even Jardine, sometimes tried to hit their way out, mostly with the poor results that Dhoni got in England but in some rare cases with some spectacular quick runs.

    There is a very famous name who used to do that when faced with such conditions and no one can ever blame HIM (yes he deserves the capitals) of not trying hard enough to concentrate.

    His name Donald George Bradman.
