JO didnt gift away his wicket? Why was he slashing at a good length ball outside off stump from Gillespie then? Those are deliveries test batsmen have to leave, and it was a classic test match dismissal - the way he got out. Much like how Brett Lee departed off Mashrafee today. Except that JO was attempting to play the ball with his 4 inches of bat's width instead of a good 2 and a half feet of straight-bat willow! This new look JO is most disappointing! I preferred his old style 100 ball 10 run innings much more. We kept him around for all our tests because of that! He doesnt have to prove anything to us, except that he wont gift his wicket away! Same goes for everyone else!
