Not a pretty sight
2 days gone. 25 wickets. 15 of those, unfortunately for England, happen to be theirs. Barring deluges that necessitate the building of arks and the loading up of animals by pairs, this test should go to Australia. We could say "And then?" But that would be premature. For now, its worth noting England have batted poorly, that Australia have bowled well (and Johnson's late spell is making me eat my words that he would be a dud until after the Oval test), and that test cricket can be very cruel indeed. There is no place to hide when a player cannot summon up the internal reserve to keep his body language positive as the cricketing facts of a test gone wrong start to crush you slowly and surely. England laid it all out today and it was painful to watch at times.
