Australia – the story of their recent tests, opening partnership 78, next five wickets 65.
England – had some luck and North at the right time, then just couldn’t work out how to bowl to Hussey in form, as it’s been a while since they’ve seen it.
Ponting – sodomized down the legside.
Katich – Krab-punched one back to Finn.
Clarke – Like boiling puppies in a glass bowl with several cameras situated around them. Finn did the gentlemanly thing.
Hussey – just survived early on. Then he batted like he should have for the last 3 years, he saw bad balls and backed himself to hit them.
North – Didn’t survive the first under bet in my Marcus North betting system.
Haddin – brought out his drive, looked tighter than Clarke or North.
Swann – His first four over’s in this match cost him 34, his next six, 4 runs for 1 wicket.
Anderson – lucked out with Ponting, then had fun with Clarke for a while. Still not too much movement.
Broad – no wickets without looking like he has no wickets.
Finn – got one wicket with a half volley and another with a short shit ball, inbetween that he bowled ok without wetting any whistles.
Collingwood – bowled for shits and giggles.
Fielding – tidy.
Over rates – still behind.
