Sydney: The Australian media has said that even if their national cricket team did not use the short-pitched bowling tactics during the first Ashes Test, England would have fallen for other traps.

According, to the Sydney Morning Herald, certainly there were a disproportionate number of leg-side dismissals compared with an average Test, but the intimidation laws and the bouncer limit laws are markedly defined.

The Australian media said that the short-pitched assault was only a fraction of the plan and if there is continued emphasis on debunking that tactic, England will fall for other traps.

The report added that England would not dare to put anything in writing lest there be hard evidence of `whinging`.
