Build pressure with the ball by bowling as a unit
The Australian seamers made sure that the pressure was never off the England batsmen. Although Mitchell Johnson and Ryan Harris took all but two of the wickets between them, Ben Hilfenhaus conceded barely two runs per over from 31 overs, bowling dry as they call it. After an initial poor spell Jimmy Anderson improved and Chris Tremlett was excellent throughout. But Steve Finn conceded almost a run a ball. England’s whole bowling strategy for this series has been based on incisive use of the new ball and disciplined attritional bowling thereafter. For Melbourne they will need to get back to that approach.
