102 in 34 overs

So, the all-pace attack works. England 102 all out in 34 overs at Headingley. Clearly the Don has been invoked. Some loose batting by England and excellent bowling by Australia.

I think this shows too (just a little bit) how modern batting sides tend to struggle in bowler-friendly conditions.

Now, to see what the English bowlers will do. I suspect Watson will fail.

Good to see that this wicket offers something to the bowlers, although how much England got themselves out is open to question. Could be a long five days for this England fan.

David, not enough gritting it out in some of the top-order. The lower-order fell to the short ones, fair enough.

Just listened to an excellent Boycott rant on the radio. According to Geoffrey, nobody listens to him, but he would not give any advice anyway because he is not paid to be a coach. A true hero for our times.
