Blimey, one tiny gap in my vast general knowledge base, and I am getting hammered.

But tbf South Australia's also factors in the 25 years behind :D

I will say I think it’s given the bowlers more scope for improvement, but batters no. Have a look at Buttlers dismissal, putrid for a five day game. He wasn’t on his own though.

Agree and this is the elephant in the room of test cricket.

Butler needs to re learn how to play defensive strokes to be fair

With apologies to Mandy-Rice Davies for the mis-quote....

Have you had Day 5 of the 06-07 Ashes test in Adelaide surgically removed from your memory?
It's always turned Day4/day5

That assumes a) The game lasts that long & b) We have someone who can actually spin the ball.

I wasn’t questioning Lyon’s ability, it was more the suggestion that Root’s ears would pick up & that him and Silverwood would base our attack around it :p

On the England front. Stokes was firing in net practice and apparently a lot of wickets fell with the English bats (not so good). One of your lads got sconed (hit in the head) as well, apparently ok though which is good to hear.
Likelihood of Broad, Anderson, Wood and Ollie to play which means you'll want to bowl first if you dont have a recognised spinner as Adelaide does turn a bit on days 4 and 5. Root can bowl a few offies but can anyone else bowl out of your bats? Or do you think the 4 quicks and Stokes will be enough.

Nope you have us spot on and looks like we will be Donald ducked

Just read that..................grrr. That will make Steve Smith captain which will put a smile on your English faces:D

Be a big loss for us if Paddy doesn't play. Not sure who'll be next in line if Richardson replaces Hazelwood. Mitch Marsh probably:S::clown::frown:

Good old smith won the toss and choose to field/ which quite honestly surprised me

I can’t believe we can bowl so many maiden overs.

RazorsEdge 16-12-2021 05:46 AM

I am beginning to think Stokes is a mistake for this tour.

His bowling is very erratic albeit he only bowled 2 overs….he is not looking 100 percent

That Last Over didn’t suggest that.

**** sake Jos.

The more you watch that the worse it looks. Basic wicket keeping.

Outside. What happened? Did he drop one?

Wolfnipplechips 16-12-2021 07:28 AM

Gloved down the leg side. Dropped Warner.

Yep, poor drop that. Now watch Lagershandy go on and score a double ton

Type of attritional batting we’ll surely see from England too
