Here Goes!!!

England

Cook – 6 – batted well first up, and got a good ball second innings.

Root – 3.5 – Getting bogged down. Was at least unbeaten in the second innings.

Trott – 3 – Looks out of form. Can do better.

KP – 7.5 -  Match saving innings. Was a tad unlucky second time around.

Bell -  7 – A well timed fifty from Mr consistent.

Bairstow – 4 – Put on fifty with KP but Looks nervous.

Prior – 5 – A vital 30 ensured we saved the follow on. Keeping was adequate.

Bresnan – 6 – Bowled well without much luck then got two for 20 odd. Played a poor shot in the first innings.

Broad – 5.5 - As above, and like Prior got some valuable runs.

Swann – 7 - More wickets but did take a bit of stick second up.

Anderson – 4 – Not at his best, but it was tough for the quickies.



Australia

Watson – 3 – Not even getting fifties now.

Rogers – 6.5 – lovely innings of 84.

Khawaja – 4 – A little unlucky first up.

Clarke – 9 – Back to his best. Declaration was wrong, otherwise it would have been a 9.5.

Smith – 7 - Looks fluent but can he score a test ton. Unlucky run out second up.

Warner –  4.5 Hooked one to Root, but made a quick 41 second innings.

Haddin – 6.5 – A quick 65 and some good keeping.

Siddle – 7.5 – Excellent bowling from Mr Underatted.

Starc – 7 - Nice innings and 3 wickets.

Harris - 7 -  Fine bowliing. Hits the deck in the right place.

Lyon – 5 - Bowled better than his figures

Think Watson's bowling needs to be looked at, think that should get him to a 4.

Watson's bowling, whilst economical, was entirely unthreatening though.

I only have a couple of very minor quibbles with your ratings.

I think you've underrated Rogers and Smith (and possibly KP) if you give Bell a 7 - Rogers in particular set the tone for the match by going after England's bowlers, and Smith came in at a crucial time and played a fine hand.

Possibly you've underrated the Aussie seamers by half a mark or so - I thought they bowled really well on a fairly unresponsive pitch.

KP and Smith 8, Rogers 7.5, Starc 7.5 (pick of the Aussie bowlers for me). The rest pretty much as you have it

Stella - generally on the money apart from Haddin whom I thought kept extremely well. That together with his runs first time out would have got him a 8 or 8.5 in my book.

Maybe an 8? 6.5 is a little light.
