Poor in Perth

It can't keep going like this can it? I mean how many times can you log on and think of another damning post to write?
Luckily, the best bits about blogging are finding random stories or coming across links to post, rather than continually write about England's demise.
However, falling short of dissecting every part of Duncan Fletcher's troops, I was amazed at Freddie Flintoff's fielding nous today.
Against New Zealand, Ricky Ponting placed his best fielders on the ropes towards the end of the innings. Ball-by-ball Andrew Symonds and Michael Clarke stopped the thwack, thud and wallop of Jacob Oram's bat. And it definitely saved Australia so much more than the eight runs that the Kiwis fell short by in defeat.
Chris Tremlett and Liam Plunkett's blunders today summed it up. At least England got past 200.
