Can bat..... Can bowl? Can field?

"Can't bat, can't bowl, can't field. Famously, they said that about the last England side to win the Ashes. Now they are saying it about me." - Ashley Giles, after the first Test.

Today he scored 23 off 30 with 4 boundaries. Like all other English batsmen that were on display today, Giles was in a real hurry trying to prove his detractors wrong. Unlike in the previous test, the tail did wag today and helped England get past 400. More than his batting, England needs Giles to display his wares with the ball in his hand. Hope Giles puts his hand up and show that he CAN bowl, the next time Vaughan throws the ball in his direction.
