So Andrew Strauss, Alastair Cook, Ian Bell and Paul Collingwood all failed with the bat again. They were bailed out by a KP innings and yet again by the tailenders.
So whats new there? Maybe a KP innings compared to the last 18 months. I’m well aware of the fact that we are a team, but that dosen’t mean we have to keep on relying on the tail to get our runs.
I know it’s only the first match and things could change, but come on lads the Aussies are struggling. A solid batting display here would have sent out a real message of intent.
Do we really want to show them that our batting is still crap? And give their confidence a boost just when they need it most?
Get your acts together.
