Even with the drops and the other missteps, the Aussies would have to be happy to get 6 for under 200 runs. This looks like a 400-run pitch to me.
I can turn any player into a world beater by saying that player should not be in the side.

Sending the opposition in on a 400 wicket doesm't seem a great idea. England may still get them.
