It's no surprise their one world class batsman got them into the driving seat, Clarke was due a big innings. Shame KP couldn't have gone on and built a similarly big innings when we were batting - gave the Aussies a chance to throw the bat yesterday to push for the win.
Though England have batted first in their two victories, they didn't take anywhere near as many overs out of the game before getting out as Australia did here - it just shows a big opening score can be a double-edged sword, especially when you desperately need to win a match & rain is forecast.
Yeah I think the Aussies should have been a bit more adventurous in the first innings, knowing that it was going to rain at some point they needed to get England in and then out in the first innings asap.
