Collapses are the best thing in cricket.


Jonathan Trott is a beast. An average of 67 is just mindblowing (and he has played a considerable amount now). And none of this 'planning' (short pitched stuff, left arm spin etc.) would work against him either. Just requires extremely tight and accurate bowling I suppose.

Pakistan have had a taste of him; Australia - plenty. Beware India!

Perhaps somewhat perversely, I'm increasingly finding Trott my favourite of all the England batsmen. Thrilling he may not be, but then neither was Steve Waugh, and he did okay for himself. Pietersen, on the other hand... one hundred in the last 30 Test innings is pathetic for someone of his ability. England can't repeat "he's class; he'll get his form back soon" indefinitely... can they?

The Reverse Sweep

Hopefully KP will prove the old adage of form being temporary and class being permanent, but his downward spiral is a bit of a concern. Luckily, England can afford to be patient if the likes of Cook, Trott and Bell continue to plunder the runs as they have done.

The Reverse Sweep

You are right AB, 67 is mindblowing. Troot seems to just love batting and once he is out there just seems to go into his own bubble and is impervious to everything. India beware indeed!

Collapses and the PCB. Both have you rolling in the aisles!
