The first test in the Ashes came to an end as the Aussies bowled out the Englishmen cheaply. At the end of the 3rd day's play, England had lost 5 wickets with Kevin Peterson guarding one end. It took merely 61 minutes of play on the rain afftected 4th day to finish of with the tame English tail. The only entertainment was provided by the aggresive Kevin Peterson. He played some beautiful shots against the otherwise dominating Shane Warne. The Aussies are back close to their best. The bowling attack is not as good with Jason Gillespie being the weak link. It is now to the Englishmen to take advantage of it to come back in the series. The second test starts on 4th August in Birmingham. Stay tuned!

To me, it seems Kevin Pietersen is not absolutely english in his mannerisms. Thats why he has the edge. He has the dash. His batting style is simple and not restrained by technicalities. Plays powerful sweep against Warne and dosnt bother about McGrath.
Thats why is looked good. Sadly not many can add that extra punch in the English team.
