    I think it's just poor batting. KW is falling away from the ball when he plays the shot, if he stays still the ball usually deflects off the thigh pad to fine leg after he nicks it. Cook's trademark flaw.

    Wasn't there 2-3 leg side strangles in the last test match also?

    England are bowling slightly quicker so that's probably helping

    Average of 19 for Southee is a touch flattering IMO.

    Not that I think Watling should farm the strike.

    It's poor bowling too though. I highly doubt Anderson was thinking "I'll give him a length ball down the leg side hoping for a caught behind." As I said, ****test cricket.

    Sanga isn't the best off spinner in the history of cricket? News to me.

    Proudly against the bring back Bennett movement since he is injury prone and won't last 5 days.

    Southee having a go is infinitely better than Southee trying to bat properly as things stand. He isn't a very batsman-like lower order player atm. Might change in time and often tries to bat properly but he's far more effective and comfortable when he's given a license.

    Nah, it really doesn't. If they wanted some to play the support role Martin would be in.
