Anything good from this match today, from an English viewpoint? Not much. Pietersen seems a law to himself: I’ve just seen article saying the Aussies don’t know how to bowl to him, as no plans have worked.
A minus this test: I’d seen Geoff Boycott wasn’t convinced re Collingwood versus fast bowling. Well, he’d doubted Collingwood as test player, yet he played well in India, scored that double hundred the previous test.
But yesterday and today, he was all at sea against pace, especially Clark: extra bounce at Perth bamboozling him so much it was hard to watch.
