I really hate being right sometimes.
Obviously we've got to wait and see how England's batsmen go. But I've got a horrible feeling this series won't even be competitive, based on what we've seen so far.
And there we have the aurora of test cricket.
In saying that, I wasn't expecting the pitch to pan out like it did late in the game. It didn't feel like English conditions at all, more subcontinental, and that favoured us since our batsmen love tracks that give nothing to the seamers, and our spin bowler is much better. Can still easily see England dominating the rest of the series if they prepare fresh wickets.
