And my other issue is this

We pick a team for two Tests

First Test we lose within three days and get done by an innings , we pick the same side from the squad of 13

Meanwhile Renshaw gets a ton in each innings , Maxwell get 6-20 and scores a 150 and Wade actually catches the ball twice in an innings

The Poms have done this in the past and failed , yet we think it will work for us

Really disappointed that Renshaw got bumped, but I can understand the logic. Public have long whinged that players performing for state are being overlooked and now the selectors are somewhat listening.
Not having a go at you CB , but when Warner was in a slump they didn't go looking for the axe , did they ??
No of course not. I suppose you could argue Warner has repeatedly delivered at home for us though. It's only his away form that is suspect.

Either way, disappointed for Renshaw, hopefully he takes it on board and bounces back.

Lyon reckons Hazlewood is the best pace bowler in the world.
With no all-rounder.... Hazlewood will have to bowl a lot of overs in this series. Both Starc and Cummins are often used in short spells. Hope none of the fast bowlers break down.

Hazlewood will be fine. More worried about Cummins, that kid is fair dinkum held together with tissue and spit.

It wouldnt be an Australian side without one koala in it. These Marsh kids have been blessed with their careers considering their slightly above average talent.
Paine selection is ridiculous.
Renshaw has the right temperament for test cricket but seeing as he digs in rather than hitting sixes off middle peg, maybe he isnt marketable enough?

Should still dust the poms up but some unfair decisions made again.

Looks like Maxwell is cover for Marsh as well as Warner. According to Rod Hogg Marsh's back is playing up. Warner's neck is sore but he'll most likely play.

Just gone into the Cricket Australia site on my work computer to listen to the commentary at work. Has anyone seen the "boss" button? there's a symbol of a tie (top right). You hit it when your boss walks past and it flicks up a spreadsheet that looks like an Excel doc. genius.

Boss has the tele on in the Lunch room for us..

Solid start from the Poms after losing Cook early to a Starc pearler..

Gabba pitch seems slow ..oh it's in QLD..Lyon looks like he could take a wicket anytime..

Poms 1/59 at tea...

They've done well to dig in. Our bowlers aren't asking many questions though.
