A solid start

So far, so good...

England wrapped up a good win against Western Australia this morning, and I'm pretty sure that's the first time we've won a First-Class match down under since the 2002/03 tour! We won by 6 wickets after some great bowling by Broad and Swann created a WA collapse and set us up to chase down 243 with just over 50 overs in which to do it.

Good old Captain Fantastic made 120 not out, great to see he's in good nick as his runs have been key for us for a couple of years now. Disappointingly Cook only scored 9 to add to his 4 in the first innings, but Pietersen seemed back to some form with 35. Hard to know how to judge the middle order as we needed to score at a one-day pace, but the main thing is we've started our tour with a win and can build from here.
