Don’t buy test tickets in Australia for days 4 or 5. India can’t bat outside of India and Australia can’t bat at all.
India batted alright here 4 years ago. Kohli scored 4 hundreds.

Khawaja possisbly needs surgery and could miss the summer. The Marsh’s might not be going anywhere.

Wests Tigers don't need a Coach.. The playing group has taken over..

Brings back some memories from the mid 80's

I can't remember the amount of Tests we would have against the Windies at their peak at 5/80 and the Dujon , Richards ,Richardson Clive Lloyd , Larry Gomes would put a massive partnership together

And then Holding ,Garner , Ambrose ,Marshall etc etc etc would destroy us

In the mid 80's we were still able to beat some teams at home.
I think this time India will beat Australia at home for the first time ever. Australia has never lost to a team at home from the Subcontinent.
The South African media/public were so keen to derail us they went to extraordinary lengths. The whole SBW thing did it job. Australia started cheating in front on all the cameras and have never recovered from that moment.
Has Kohli had any affairs?
Has she been to the Coogee Bay Hotel? and does she like Rugby League players?
in Ivan we distrust

Unfortunately the passion for Test cricket in our youth is disappearing , Australia has been clinging on as a top nation for a while

As the West Indies 20 years ago , I only see pain for our Tests team in the future , India ,Pakistan and Sri Lanka will dominate the game going forward

It will be the Australian batting order that will struggle to get runs. Bowling attack will be strong and cause some issues but India have some good players in their batting line up who can score runs in Australian conditions

Can anyone explain why the Marsh nobs keep getting chances? Especially Mitchell - he can bat a bit and bowl a bit but can’t do either well enough to be a force in test cricket. And that’s where short form cricket is killing the game - we are producing low quality all rounders who are bog average in test cricket .
Back to my question - surely Joe Burns is a better option!

The Marsh brothers just make no sense, they have shown time and time again that they have no consistency at test level but still get picked. We have better cricketers out there now. Although we do need to fix the domestic season.

Anyone else keeping an eye on this Llyod Pope. 18 year old leg spinner from South Australia. Bowl well at the under 19 World Cup. Did a good job with limited opportunities in his 1st shield game last week, today destroyed Queensland with 7/87 in only his third bowling innings in the shield. One to watch, hopefully can get out and see him in the shield when nsw play sa.

I missed the start of the Big Sports Breakfast this morning

Who was the batsmen they were talking about who has suffered the concussions and the was rested due to exhaustion from the Shield game ......think they said he got a double century last start , youngest player since Ponting to get a 200 ??

Don’t listen to big sports breakfast but Pucovski is the 20 year old Victorian who scored a double last start and played well at the end of last summer.

Saw he got a 50 n.o so he has a chance to make runs and force his way back in. Weak NSW bowling attack in that game though.

Gee we hand down a report after the CA AGM , smart that , anyone that was in charge is gone

Many are stinging after being flogged repeatedly with wet lettuce leaves

Nothing will change ....the poor players ....blame travelling in a bubble when touring , no understanding what is right or wrong

CA and the NRL are congenital twins ......
