Hopefully England can set an example after both wickets they'll take on day one at Brisbane after being bowled out for 67

It all depends how frequently the wickets are taken I suppose….if the time between wickets is in days then a celebration is needed I suppose :)

What’s the new stadium in Perth like for away teams now the Fremantle Doctor is no longer a concern for the players?

cappuccinoeagle 22-11-2021 09:12 PM

Will there be highlights on terrestrial TV?

Maiden Eagle 22-11-2021 09:39 PM

Pretty sure that Vaughan has been part of the BT commentary team for the Aussie tests, in the past ?

Not this time though, surely ?

Maiden Eagle 22-11-2021 09:42 PM

Has Glenn come out with his normal 5-0 Aussies prediction, yet ?

RobertCPFC 22-11-2021 10:01 PM

I don't think it has been confirmed yet but the commentary is likely to be from Fox Sports with BT having studio coverage from London between sessions.

I'm just not sure we have enough bowling to regularly get 20 wickets.

I've little time for Paine, and he's beyond average, so not ideal that he could well be out of the team now.

Fair enough you have little time for him, as i have lost a fair amount of respect for him as well.
To say he's beyond average is a bit of a stretch though considering he averages 32 with the bat which is comparable to nearly your entire batting list bar Root and Stokes. Think he's only 5 runs behind Stokes as well. Root is a brilliant player so no comparison there obviously.

Paine is a good player and I thought he let Smith run the show last time Australia played here which kind of made him look weak.

Number 7 is a specialist role and I rather Paine play for Australia than some young kid who wants to make a name for himself (my logic anyway)

He has been quite this time. I am sure he will

I just love it when he says that.

He may be 5 behind in averages but all other stats point to Paine not being fit to lace Mr Stokes sweaty boots.

Wasn't my point. Those two are the only quality players you have in front of him in terms of test average.

Agreed. Last thing we need is another Lagershandy popping up.

I see the chair of Tasmania has supported Paine in his sending of unwanted dick pics.

His name?

Gaggin, yes Gaggin' for it

I had little time well before this escapade of his became apparent. He’s a dickhead. His sledging is shit (see the india series). . His off field chat is shit (calling out Root and the England team and now he’s the one least likely to play).
He’s nothing but a brown nose to Langer. Watching him in the documentary is cringe worthy at times.
He’s a shit captain (see Ben Stokes at Headingley).

I don’t think many of our players are that good either, so that’s a pointless comparison.

And he’s an experienced player while many of our batting line up aren’t. He’s rarely made score that impact a game either (though he’d gained a couple more lately).

Unfortunately Australia will be better without him.

Tomo 23-11-2021 07:57 PM

I’m not sure your stats are wholly correct either.

Paines average is 32.6

Bairstow (33.7)
Butler (33.3)
Hameed (35.9)
Root (50ish)
Stokes (35)

You’ve then got Pope and Burns both literally fractions below Paine.
Both who’ve played a lot of matches on less batsmen friendly pitches.

Gotta hope the Aussies look down on us as they usually do and let their guard down.

Well they’ll most certainly do the former.
