    Batting with the tail

    While Andrew Flintoff's captaincy in the series so far has been questionable, his batting in the first innings at Sydney has been his best effort so far.

    The interesting part about his innings was the way he batted with the tail (i.e. after the fifth wicket fell!). In total contrast to Kevin Pietersen's approach of taking a single off the first ball and keeping himself happy with a not out, something which Steve Waugh was very adept at doing, Flintoff played out an hour (16 overs) with the tail, scoring 39 out of the 46 runs made until he was out. He took a single off the first or second ball of an over only five times in that duration.

    It's perhaps quite obvious who the 'selfish' bloke is!
