  • Baggy Greens have the upper hand

    Posted on August 4, 2013 by Selby


    It was a Kevin Pietersen (113) batting lesson for a change, at Old Trafford, I enjoyed every moment, full house and lots of atmosphere, though not so good for cricket memorabilia as is often the case during pressure phases of a test series.

    Kevin Pietersen’s stimulating performance showed once again how he can turn a match around.

    Cook (62) and Bell (60) all probably did enough to see England avoid the follow on; with 34 runs still needed to reach the crucial 328 Michael Clarkes options may still be open.

    Australia needs to take the final three wickets early tomorrow whilst restricting England’s score to within the 328 target.

    Kevin Pietersen now becomes England’s all time highest scorer in all formats of cricket making 113 runs before being lbw to Michael Starc, yet another controversial DRS decision. The DRS system has led to all sorts of dispute during the current series which must create doubt as to its future in the current format.

    Michael Starc bowled well with 3/75 as did Ryan Harris with 2/50

    The weather reports while unreliable still favour a draw which would not suit the tourists as anything other than a win would hand the England the Ashes

    Ashes cricket memorabilia is always special and judging by individual and team performance this year is no exception.
