Mitchell Johnson finds top form

Deep backward square leg dons the wicketkeeping gloves in anticipationMitchell Johnson was allowed seven whole overs against Northamptonshire and didn’t bowl a single wide. Sure, he didn’t take any wickets, but when you’re up against batsmen like Alex Wakely and Riki Wessels, it’s bound to be tough for a bowler.

Johnson’s got a really good chance of hitting the sightscreen behind him if he bowls in the next Test. He should probably start bowling underarm quite soon.

  1. You spoke too soon – he bowled a wide in the second innings. Took a wicket though, and only went for 5.82 an over. Looks like he’s found top form, but probably peaked.

  2. Can they possibly play him at The Edge now?

  3. I played a demo of that ‘Ashes Cricket 2009’ game over the weekend. I was amazed to find that Mitch managed to hit the cut strip on more than one occasion!

  4. You lot done tempting fate yet?
