Mitch Johnson ripped the hell out of our middle & lower order last night, fantastic pace bowling, but the Aussies have been better in every department. It looks like they will declare with a 600 lead, then they'll have about 5 sessions to bowl us out, which shouldn't be a problem
I've been watching cricket for more than 40 years, and seen some pretty dismal displays over the years, but can't remember one that was as dire as this winters performance over there, absolutely battered by a very average Aussie team.
Kevin Pietersen's England career is over after he was told he is no longer in their plans, ECB managing director Paul Downton said: "The time is right to rebuild not only the team but also the team ethic."
Pietersen said: "I will continue to play but deeply regret that it won't be for England."
The Aussies are furious over here! I'm glad England won because I have no interest in cricket, and now the Aussies will just leave me alone about it, whereas if they had won they'd probably have insisted on talking about it and any opposition from me would be seen as sour grapes!
