    Nah, we're talking last 2-3 years. Not against McWarne.

    :yao: Look at his record against us since they retired, and more accurately, in that series.

    Meh, Johnson isn't really a tailender. And both of those pitches got flatter when the tail came in. Inclined to agree though.

    The Perth pitch was so flat that England could only score 300 runs in two innings on it. :troll: And Johnson is a tail ender in the same vein as Broad and co. are. They're bowlers who can bat quite nicely.

    No I agree we suck against the tail. I remember at Birmingham against India we ripped out the top order in both innings only for Dhoni (Yes I consider him a tailender) and Kumar to spank some late innings runs.

    At least you didn't let that tail ender Sehwag make any runs against you. SA's tail isn't much to speak about though. Philander and Steyn are ok and can hang around (Steyn can belt it a bit). But Morkel is basically useless with the bat and Tahir is pretty much a bunny.

    Morkel can play seam alright, but sucks big time against spin. Last time we just used to bring Panesar on and he would clean Morkel up. With Swann being better, and Morkel being a left hander, hopefully he won't score any annoying runs.

    Thing is even SA's number 6 and keeper aren't that good. So there isn't usually a top class bat to belt it with the tail, like England do with Prior.

    That is worrying indeed. If top order fails, its bye-bye for SA!

    well. the Akon one was just asking to be made with the south african team vid, loool. as for other songs sometimes they dont pay off when i make the vid to be honest. If you go to my channel and look at comments on my vids some are like awesome song and other think the song is **** to be frank. I think you just gotta go with your gut when it comes to choosing songs.

    Dilan I think going with the first song would have been a better choice to be honest , but I can see why you chose the second one. What is the name of the first one btw?

    Try and get something that feels right for the type of video. Play the song and think about how you want the video to be in your head, you'll know when you've got the right one.

    If he is going to be the wicket champion in the end of the English'sCricket summer, he needed to start early and against West Indies would have been a great start.
