I dont think we go dropping anyone at the moment. It is just that the Poms have done their homework on each and everyone of the Aussie batsmen, something we didn't do cause we thought we could just blow them away with sheer pace.
I don't know why but Braith Anasta pisses me off :mrgreen:

No they don't. They need their A-holes handed to them

Poms crapped the bed big time. Had us on the ropes and let us score over 100 runs from our last three wickets.

Then dropped two cheap wickets. Good to see Hazlewood get among the wickets.

And how much longer are we going to rely on Smudge to yank an innings from the fire when the top and middle order fail? Thank Christ for him and Cummins.

I wouldnt say the pommies stuffed up at all. They had a bowling plan which was working but were later thwarted by one of the most stubborn yet awesome innings played by an aussie in a long while. As i said the other day, this cricket team would be stuffed without him in it. People rave about warner but he isnt a batsman's backside compared with steve.

That sort of innings was almost Captain Grumpyesque!
(and I mean that with immense respect)
Madgic!

Yep. It was weird Anderson and Broad didn't bowl first thing after lunch when the ball was still hard and we were about 80 runs behind.

Anyway... looking forward to seeing our fast bowlers bowl on today

Brayshaw and good shouldn't ever be used in the same sentence when it comes to cricket commentary. He is the worst commentator in cricket.
And even worse for RL.

England are missing Stokes big time. They'll miss him today with the bat.

But yeah, starting the middle session without Anderson and or Broad was idiotic. You could argue that it swung the match.

Nothing much has changed. Smith and Warner are our only two world class batsman. Marshi again proves through his soft dismissal (at such a crucial time) that he is a not good enough.

Daniel Hughes and Peter Neville should have been selected but weren't because the selectors don't want too many NSW players in the team. There are six already.

Every now and again I'll catch a glimpse of Hazlewood and I'll think it's Eisenhuth.

We've got this in the bag. Just need Starc to give a good spell and pick up a couple before tea and we'll be golden.
