England did not bowl badly but failed to hit the disciplined lines that set up their surprise 169-run win in the first test in Cardiff last week. Anderson also said that “We didn’t bowl as well so there’s a little bit of frustration, There were too many bad balls and on a good pitch like that, your good balls are going to get hit for four as well. When you add them both together, you end up with the score we’ve got now.”

Anderson admitted that Rogers and Smith had played well.
Hats off to the two guys who made hundreds.
I thought they played brilliantly — they stayed patient, attacked us when they could
and made it really difficult to bowl at them for long periods of time.” Anderson said

However, England missed two chances,as both Rogers and Smith being dropped by by slip corton
“We had a couple of half-chances, Even in the first over of the game — I know it’s gone quickly, but you take those half-chances
and the day could be very different.” said Anderson, England’s leading test wicket-taker.
