"You cover the off and I'll hit the leg"

Poor Andrew Strauss. In the first innings, the ball pitched well outside the off stump, he shaped up to play it to square, only to find it spin sharply into him, go past his bat and crash into the furniture behind him. In the second innings, that particular delivery should have been playing (replaying rather) up in his mind when he saw the ball pitching in the same spot. This time around he shuffled across and covered his off-stump well enough, only to see the ball turn even sharper, go past his legs and crash into the middle and leg stumps. Talking of satisfying sleeps, there doesn't seem to be anything of that sort in store for poor Andrew, atleast until the end of the Ashes. Shane Warne, the magician -- take a bow.
