Bulls*** over hyped lead up is over and the cricket has begun.

Proper test cricket yesterday. Lyon looking dangerous and now picking up wickets. Australia to win 3-1.

He's also a second spin bowling option. Hopefully they're about to give him out so he can be f***ed off for the second test.

Reckon handscombe can really become the full time keeper?

When he kept last time he very much looked like a part time keeper. He did an alright job but he was super relaxed about it.

I guess it's speculation on my part whether he could be developed into a keeper of test quality, but Australia could really use 7 specialist batsman. We're really missing runs being made at number 7. I can't remember the last time anyone made a decent score in that position.

But hey, Paine was dismissed by a cracker good enough to get any batsmen in the history of the game today so I'm not writing him off yet. If he succeeds we could get a good four years out of him.

Pretty sure i can't remembwr any batsman apart from steve smith making any good runs for a while.

It is getting f*****g embarassing how often steve smith has to single handedly save a test match with his bat.

... and the tail. Cummins is a very welcome addition. From what I saw on TV and heard on the radio he handled himself brilliantly today. Starc is a bit more of a flat track bully but he makes plenty of handy runs as well.

Don't forget about Warner. He's been amongst it lately.

For those talking about Paine as a batsmen. He has only ONE first class hundred to his name. Nevill has 9 and I think by all accounts is a better keeper. Nevill is almost a year younger and averages 39 at first class level compared to 29 for Paine. Apparently the thing keeping him out of the team is he's quiet behind the stumps....

Personally think Khawaja doesn't belong. His weakness to spin is so evident that if I was a captain I'd bring my spinner on immediately when he comes out. Its almost Cullinan like!

Happy with how Marsh performed in the end. He should have scored more but thankfully he got to 50 when we really needed it. Not sure Maxwell would have had the temperament to bat the way we needed to on days 1 and 2 when it was a really slow patient grind.

yer, im team nevill as well, im not sure why he was overlooked?

happy for marsh or khawaja to be dropped to get maxwell in as a true all rounder batting nunmber 6.

if khawaja goes, marsh goes to number 3, and if he fails there, boot him and never select him again. (tough love)

I am pretty sure i remember thinking surely this must be the last time a marsh gets selected last time they failed, like for real this was the 20th time and failed.

What is the go with the day night tests? Is this a ruse for channel 9 to make more money through ads, like the NRL state of origin and grand finals being moved later?

I guess it helps people can come to the oval to catch a few hours after work.

What the f***

Joban said he could get players to follow “scripts” — such how many runs would be scored in a session, or an innings, when a wicket will fall and what a team would do if it won the toss.


tee hee

Seems rather scandalous. Will be pretty f***ed up if true. If there's a weak point on the Australian team it is David Warner.
