KP on top atm. - especially with that shot to bring up the 50 partnership
I don't think he's been that unthreatening, he could have had Collingwood a couple of times, but he's certianly not looked like taking a bag. All the seamers are toiling a bit on this wicket with the old ball. Aside from marginal reverse there's just nothing there. Plenty for Warne, but he has evidently been afflicted with a voodoo curse.Nnanden said:Frustrating cricket. McGrath has been SO unthreatening. Lee has had his good spells, but without much reward. Warne has been ridiculously unlucky. And who is Stuart Clark?
That's the main reason I was surprised people were criticising, he wasn't playing well and he got through it and his SR wasn't too shocking by the end.FaaipDeOiad said:I agree that scoring slowly doesn't matter all that much. It's the first day and England needed a partnership. If he was still striking in the 30s after making a 60+ you'd be worried, but early on its fine.
He has batted horribly though. Not because he's been slow, more because he could have been out about a dozen times. Credit to him though, he's managed to stay in there somehow and has the chance to go on with it and turn it into a good innings.
oh, rightFaaipDeOiad said:Not that hard to follow, surely? I'm referring to the last Ashes in Australia, where England were 4/295 at stumps on day 1 batting first, made 342 and Australia made 552 in reply.
