Proper test match batting.

How can you plan for two years with an army of well paid analysts, and end up picking the wrong team match-after-match; overlook the importance of fielding, and then persist in bowling way too short for the conditions?

Overdue a rash of sackings throughout the ECB.

Overdue a round of backslapping throughout the ECB over how well The Hundred went.

EFA

To be fair to King Warnie, he does slag some Aussies players too, maybe the one’s who don’t kiss his arse. But he is annoying and I am going he is making Boycott good

Getting absolutely no luck at all here.

RazorsEdge 16-12-2021 09:36 AM

Nope, looks like Smith was right to bat first

Amazed he was given the captaincy. Cricket Aus have short memories.

Forget that, you may be missing a captain next test, or the one after.

He was vice captain, he was given that as a token gesture to satisfy a lot of influential people in the Australian game.

Nobody was expecting Cummins to ever not be available.

Unfortunately who else is there you would select get in for one test?

I am not surprised.

He has apologised, cried on tv, said sorry to his father his dog, his bin man and now it is water under the bridge. Pics of dic got rid of a Paine and Cummins is injured and here we are :)


I have no problem with him being a captain, it is the Austrian cricket boards moral compass and if they think he deserves it, so be it

It's amazing the countries the game is expanding to!

Its all part of the plan, watch now as you take 9 wickets in the evening session with Jimmy swinging his pink balls around.

Morning all!

This is going to be another long, hard, first innings grind for us, isn't it?
