Yep -- I'd have dropped Broadie for this match, but I'm delighted to say I'd have been wrong, with hindsight. I'd actually have given him man of the match, to be honest, although any of Pietersen, Prior or Broad would have deserved it.

He deserved more wickets than he got (you have to wonder if his histrionics go against him with Billy Bowden, and, of course, we dropped three sitters off Broad), and although the BBC are running the headline "Anderson inspires England victory", I think Broad was the real inspiration, and Jimmy's 5 owes almost as much to Broad as it does to Jimmy himself.
