England Continues to Shock in 2011; Wraps Lanka for 82 to clinch 1st Test

How can England become #1 in the world when they don't believe they can clean up a team in one day?" asks Ryan. "Remember what Australia did to them at Adelaide in the 06/07 Ashes?

That's ridiculous. You don't have to clean up a team in a day to be world #1. The top teams should be able to survive a day and world #1 only means being the best, better than all other teams. The way Sri Lanka batted in their 2nd innings, it seemed as if England were bowling to Bangladesh. I wonder what Blake has to say now. 
More from Blake: 

Since there is not enough time for england to amass enough runs and then bowl out sri lanka for a chaseable target, England may as well bat the next 2 days, give a chance for Cook and trott to knock up 200-300 each. 

 He knows what it's like to watch these two bat all day. 
Jonathan Trott, who has played 19 Tests averages 66.77. He is behind only one man, Don Bradman, among the batsmen who have played at least 5 Tests. That's a perfect start to his career and going by how stubborn he has been so far, England have found someone they can rely upon. I hope you enjoyed the 1st showdown of the summer and learnt something from this post. Cheers.
