I don't know what should Anderson do to take wickets in Aus.He beat the bat about 25 times and a plumb lbw was turned down.Poor Jimmy.

So each team takes 11 wickets in the match. the England team suffers a lower middle order collapse and the lessons are..... Sorry not much to learn here. The much vaunted pace battery England has hyped up is, Anderson apart, not up to much. Finn was gifted wickets when the Aussies made the error of chasing fast runs. I'd have wished them to bat slowly and cook the bowlers. I guess they thought nearly two days in the field would do. Nice hit out for Ponting and Watson in the second innings. Sadly unsporting Gabba pitch. Johnson should go though. His pace was down and he looks like his puppy died.


Without a lot of luck for the Aussies on Saturday morning, England would have had a first innings lead, even with the freak occurrence of the Siddle hat-trick. It wouldn't have been much of a contest then.
