So I miss 2 days of the Ashes due to a 12-hr flight and a bit of the jet lag, and I find that in 12 hours of cricket England lost 15 wickets for less than 200 runs!
Is that how much difference the absence of Andrew Flintoff can make?
102 and 82-5, how pathetic!
And here I was thinking that the Ashes were going England's way.
I see that Stuart Clark returned and did what Jason Gillespie said he would. I think Gillespie was the only one calling for Clark's return with almost everyone saying that his career was over.
Gillespie was right.
Siddle did get 5 wickets but I think it was Clark who got the key wickets and crushed England in the 1st innings.
And in the 2nd, it was the return to form of Mitchell Johnson!
This was supposed to be his Ashes. Actually I had thought he was going to have the English for breakfast, lunch, and dinner but we all know how the series has gone for him so far.
The 2nd day of this 4th test, however, changed all that.
I haven't seen the game so I have no idea how the English have lost wickets but it seems like a very bad performance, especially since Australia scored over 400 at over 4 an over.
And Broad took 6 wickets!!? I couldn't believe that.
