Barry Cashin says...

Still a sloppy performance being ultra critical. well done Prior for getting off the blocks but on such a beautiful batting strip, Geoff Boycott at 70 could have scored runs too! Plodding Trott actually showed a little more urgency so must ...have listened to my advice(!) but the rest of the team except the two tail waggers played poorly. Bell and Morgan are a worry and as for Pietersen, well his 'England' career really should be closing very rapidly. He hasn't scored a one day hundred since 2008 and looks like he'll need to be playing a village club before stands a chance of getting three figures again! Remember people that this is a very weak, no THE weakest Australian side for a very long while with only Watson and Hussey firing, so to believe that we're on an upward curve is a false dawn. My prediction of a 7-0 rout is now out of the question but I wouldn't mind betting 6-1 or 5-2 by the time the series ends.
