Only early days, but the emergence of Jack Edwards again highlights the importance of NSW to Australian cricket. Smith was the last truly good batsman to emerge and Warner before him. At 195cm and now also performing with the ball it seems Australia may have its next test batsman in waiting.

I don't have high hopes for the series v Pakistan

I won't be surprised to see us struggle at times to reach 200

Our bowlers will need to perform miracles to win a match let alone the series

Must admit the Siddle decision seems to be OK , he hasn't looked dangerous bar he has kept it tight and picked up a wicket

Not exactly sure how much say the coach has in matters such as taking the new ball , but I always saw Justin Langer as an attacking player / mind

Amazed he didn't march out there and hand them the new ball at drinks

Every minute Pakistan is batting is one less for us to chase down a victory , first session Day 2 and the best we can hope for is a draw and we haven't faced a ball yet

And our bowling is our strength without Smith ,Bancroft and Warner

Middle order folding like a chair

I think we could be on the verge of a West Indian collapse as a Test Cricketing nation

To use a famous quote: “someone needs to be held accountable for this.” Australian cricket is at its lowest ebb. Blokes given baggy greens that are lucky to be first class playing standard.

Siddle could end up our third highest scorer

Australian cricket is suffering from its own arrogance and scheduling. They have treated sheiks cricket and the one day cup as second class citizens for a twenty/20 cash grab and we and no longer producing a production line of quality players. Travis Head and Marnus Labuschagne as test cricketers is a joke.

And if you watched Fox Sports news yesterday they were acting as if Labuschagne was going to be the next Shane Warne /Ricky Ponting :roll

Hope the squad has been working on its rain dances , they are going to need it and lots of it

It's going to take the next CEO of CA a long time to undo Sutherland's mess. Giving Shield cricket prominence as the premier domestic format would be a huge start.
