Baggy Greens dominate at Old Trafford

AN England side with three players  Stuart Broad, James Anderson and Graeme Swann  who have all taken 200 plus test wickets could not contain a fine Australian batting display on the controversially revamped Old Trafford pitch

Cricket signings are available today at the ground and memorabilia includes Australian tour brochures, autographed cricket bats, signed scorecards and teamsheets

With 276 runs required to avoid the follow on its time for England’s top order batsmen to show their mettle, with a batting line up stronger than Aus there is a lot expected from Pieterson, Trott, Cook and Bell

Clarke must take full credit for his outstanding 187 runs and decision as skipper to declare leaving his side to get a couple of wickets before close of play, a great psychological advantage, it was disappointing to see Bresnan and Root back in the pavilion with only nine runs between them even though reviews show Bresnan could still be batting.

Whether or not David Warner deserved his barracking from the crowd it is a matter of opinion, I don’t think he will take it too seriously.

Paddy Power offer 20/1 on an England win and with some spin in the wicket and favourable weather conditions it sounds quite generous odds, forgetting about the draw.

Cricket Collectables are now available for the first two matches and if this turns into an England win will be in even greater demand!!
