England need to get used to the extra bounce in the pitches over there, they really look to be struggling and lacking conviction in shots when the field is up to Lyon..
Stop trying to show how big your dick is and take on the short ball, sway out the way, let them get bored with no success and force them to pitch it up.
Pressure was the key to a few of the wickets, but it was self forced.
Johnson bowled great but could go either way next test,Harris always does.. Siddle is line and length, just get used to the slight extra bounce off a length.. The fact Lyon out bowled Swann is a worry..
The kookaburra doesn't swing, so Jimmy needs to pull his length back a little and make it get a little steeper.. Tremlett worries me, he has lost 5mph and is only getting around 80 out of it, not quick enough to worry test batsmen.
Doesn't surprise me Broad is the best bowler so far, his natural length suits the wickets.
Mentally our batsmen are fu**ed currently.. Trott is really struggling and walking to the off side to get away from the ball leaving his weight off balance and not getting through his shots.. KP is trying to dominate the bowlers as usual and not getting in before he does, not really playing the ball on merit.
Cook will be fine, Carberry the jury is out.. Played nicely first dig and was unlucky second. Prior's head isn't right, is so desperate to make runs that he wants to hit everything no matter the match situation, to get out leg slip to Lyon twice in a match is embarrassing for him.
Lots to work on.
