You daft racist prick.

HTH

Ahhhhhhh. And is, of course, of Indian heritage....

Which is why I genuinely couldn't work out out to whom he was referring. What an unbelievably (or not, considering the poster) ignorant post.

Not really. Looks like it will clear over night to reveal hot and sunny conditions first up tomorrow. Nice for batting……

Quelle surprise.

Root and Silverwood once again showing they’re tactically inept. Love Joe as a player but he’s a pretty dreadful captain surviving off an average wins record attained over a ridiculous period of time.

The other Aus posters have tried defending you as not racist, but this is complete nonsense. **** off.

147 All Out, were we really surprised? apart from Root our batting is sub standard at Test level especially when it come to the Ashes in Australia, and as for the bowling attack just imagine when the outstanding and dependable Anderson and Broad finally hang up their boots. Oh Well.

This.

Unbelievable to leave both Broad & Jimmy out. How can you tactically defend that team.

Perhaps us announcing the team so early was a tactical manoeuvre after all.

You certainly copied it, when you were better off playing to your strengths, rather than imitating our 11.

That’s a little harsh on Stokes…..

Really can’t understand how he’s still on here, lots have been banned for similar racist sh*t.

It's not just England, it's just another weak touring side. Test cricket in general is only throwing up competitive tourists in about one in every 10 series around the globe. The patient is very ill.

Yeap, what a horrible post by him.

You seriously couldn’t make it up.

History has long shown that when you’re trying to win a Test series away from home, you have to take some risks, otherwise you’re just handing the momentum and control of the matches straight over to your opposition.

Thnx for that spineless Joe, hope you enjoyed the session.

Credit to the Pakistani lad though, done a sterling job for the soap dodgers while all around him failed.

What a lovely human being you are, not even remotely subtle anymore. You're a 60 year old man, you should be ashamed of yourself.

To illustrate this to the Aus contingent, this is more ignorant than it would be to call Steve Smith "the Irishman", with a side order of "all brown people look the same".

davech 08-12-2021 09:19 AM

Oh well, bit of a shaky start. Still, things can only get better ........ can't they???

Jordan's Jacket 08-12-2021 09:26 AM

With our attack to bat first was very peculiar
....still the Aussie batting line up is pretty weak too so let's see what happens.....gotta say the Burns dismissal was pretty embarrassing

The Burns wicket was a real horror.

Clip it off the legs for four and we’re playing a different game.

Part of the problem, Jim, is that we don't know what our strengths are - especially bowling-wise. A week or so ago, I suggested that the Aus attack would be Starc, Cummins, Hazlewood & Lyon. Anyone could have guessed those four. Green is a semi-decent all-rounder addition.

I'd be surprised if anyone on here would have picked Wood, Woakes, Robinson, Leach & Stokes in advance of this 1st Test.

Of course, that doesn't excuse another poor batting display. The only surprise is that people were surprised.

But credit to Cummins - he led by example & seems a decent fella. Good luck to him, especially as he's had to overcome a five year Test absence due to his own serious injuries from a few years ago.

Rory Burns has proven time and again he doesn't have the technique to be a Test match batsman (or batter as we are supposed to call them now) and is horrible to watch twitching and waving his bat about

I was hoping to see little of him in this series so getting out first ball at least he's off to a good start

There are few options for England selectors given the obsession with Mickey Mouse cricket

It swung in late and he still couldn't reach it! :D

Harmison aside, most opening balls of a Test Match/Series are fairly innocuous looseners outside off.

Starc did let rip, which surprised Burns no end, and lead to a procession of dominoes!

Now its our turn.
