    I can see Pietersen getting out trying to attack Gabriel here.
    All hail Oscar the fortune-teller.

    Strauss getting worried by now.

    Bell-end hits a 50 on a flat pitch in home conditions... #notmad, Samuels can't even bowl a doosra.

    England had insane luck during this test though, they're really not as good as the English media likes to think. I read a LOT of appalling stuff written about WI before the test started, they fought well, hopefully they can win next match.

    Why would I be mad? WI aren't my team... England should be worried by how far they were pushed by WI. We were pushed IN WI but aren't England supposed to be unbeatable cricketing gods in their own home?

    Meh, obviously I'm slightly disappointed with the performance but I don't think it's really a bad thing. Frankly I think it's probably a better thing for the team to come up against, in preparation for the SA series later in the season. Given how we've dominated Australia, Sri Lanka, India, New Zealand, Pakistan etc...last time they came, one game isn't going to get me worried. Especially considering the 3 players who did best for us all had question marks surrounding them before the series started.

    FTR, CSB had this to say after the close of play yesterday.

    One thing should be for sure... if WI can get through Trott and and one of KP/Cook, Ian Bell won't be any use in this situation.  Because the pressure would be on.
    So mad.

    Oh and GTFO out CSB. How did we have "absurd luck"? And if anything we damn deserve it after all the **** luck we've had recently. Defensive shots rolling back onto the stumps, sweep shots being caught in the forearm and torso, key players being given out with umpires call on impact and hitting, losing 4 crucial tosses all over the winter etc...And Broad is entitled to some as well, after he had several deliveries dropped and plumb LBW's turned down against India.

    You didn't dominate us when we came in 09 , the 09 victory was a FLUKE that you got by cheating us out of the Cardiff match.

    I should've known better than to say that about Bell-end. I should've been able to see...

    Flat pitch - Check
    Poor/no spinner - Check
    Home conditions - Check
    Another batsman (Cook) going well at the same time - Check

    Everything perfect for Bell-end to make runs.

    It's funny how there never is any real pressure on a batsmen. If he'd failed you would have used it as a reason to argue that he cracks under pressure. Well not many people score big centuries against stunning attacks on minefields in a crucial fourth innings run chase.

    Also funny how much flatter the pitch looked when "Bell-end" came in.

    I never said the pitch was anything but flat. What you talkin' about boy? Oh and David Warner scored a 4th innings ton on a minefield

    I just don't like how you make it impossible for people to succeed. If Bell had belted 80* at Abu Dhabi you would have said it was a road.

    Well if I had it would've looked pretty silly if the rest of his team had failed wouldn't it? I don't make it impossible for people to succeed... there are just some cricketers I don't like more than others. Bell-end is one of those. I didn't even mind him before the Sydney-2011-cheating incident. I will never forgive him for that.

    You wouldn't have looked silly because the rest of the side would have managed to stick around if he scored his runs quick enough.

    And you contradict yourself there as Bell came in with everyone above him failing.

    Mate just look at it though. I mean we really do have the best tail around. Broad was at 10 and he has a 150 to his name. Not many sides can boast that. I think the best tail moment was when India reduced us to 120-8 and we slogged are way to 250 thanks to some harby pies. LOL, was made extra funny when we spanked Raina in the second innings for some average boosting.




    heh.

    You ****

    Point is: Yes, we all get it that it's great and even yours truly has pointed it out in that thread but if you keep shoving it in our face, it gets annoying HEHE! Everytime India bats, I don't go around saying Sachin has 51 Test centuries and 49 ODI centuries totalling a whopping HUNDRED centuries blah blah...

    Point taken, will try and cut down on the amount of times I bring it up. It was just that I read something with regards to Swann being number 11 so I thought I'd post something.

    Your tail is made entirely of sloggers though. Good in certain situations but not reliable. Aus tail > your tail because we have guys like Siddle and Pattinson who can bat for 5 hours and make 40 runs. We also have Ben "Viv Richards" Hilfenhaus and Nathan "THE SWEEPER" Lyon. And Ryan Harris.

    It is indeed exciting when Prior is batting #8 and Swann is your #11... I understand

    We have sloggers in our tail because we have a slow top order, we need to get quick runs. You have blockers in your tail because you have sloggers like Warner in your top order. It evens out.

    Anyway why have you come out of your 2 hours hibernation?

    I have come out of hibernation to post annoying things that will make you mad, Oscar.

    And while Cook and Trott are BORING, they're not really that slow.

    I think it depends on the bowling to be honest. I.e. the quicker the bowling, the faster they score.

    You can't really moan anyway CSB. Warne, Lee etc...were all big sloggers.
