Australia ended on <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/articles/the-ashes-2017-18-4th-test-david-warners-21st-hundred-only-intriguing-chapter-on-an-old-fashioned-run-choking-day-673381">244 for 3</a>, not too much given the scoring standards off late in Test cricket. <p></p> <p></p>Anderson felt that more than the bowlers, England were let down by the track offered at MCG. Speaking to the press, Anderson said: "You'd think that the 90,000 people that turned up today don't want to see 244-3. People want to see entertaining cricket, especially in an iconic game like the Boxing Day Test match at the MCG. People want to see exciting cricket." <p></p> <p></p>Defending England's bowling he said: We did our best. We didn't bowl great in the first session so we didn't add to the excitement, unless you are a David Warner fan. But second session we did all we could on that pitch. I know it wasn't exciting to watch, it wasn't exciting to play in to be honest." <p></p> <p></p>Talking about the pitch he further adds, "It's that attritional style of cricket but there's not a lot we can do about from here. That's the pitch we've got for the next five days and we've got to put up with it."
