We said that due to the swing-friendly conditions Kevin Pietersen’s hundred might prove handy. For similar reasons we picked James Anderson as England’s top wicket-taker and Kyle Mills to bowl most overs in this match. In the last Test, we picked Daniel Vettori and Monty Panesar to be the top wicket-takers.
It’s almost – ALMOST – like we know what we’re talking about. We’re not happy about it at all. If you wanted sense, reason and insight you wouldn’t be here.
We need to break this curse. Maybe we’ll start listening to Ian Botham and give his opinions some serious consideration. That should do the trick.
