A job well done

Mike Atherton is of the opinion that downplaying England's ODI series win in Bangladesh would be doing a disservice to Bangladesh as well as to the consistent English side which has now won its third consecutive away ODI series

Mike Atherton is of the opinion that downplaying England's ODI series win in Bangladesh would be doing a disservice to Bangladesh as well as to the consistent English side which has now won its third consecutive away ODI series. Writing in the Times, Atherton is pleased with the overall English performance, barring Kevin Pietersen's form.
Pietersen’s continuing lack of productivity was just about the only irritation for Flower, who conceded after the match that his star batsman was “worried” about his form. To add to the frustration, he fell to a left-arm spinner again yesterday, although he seemed less than pleased to be given out leg-before on the front foot to Abdur Razzak. Ten years ago it would not have been given out but times have changed and replays showed that Pietersen’s stride was a big one, but that the ball was straight enough.
