I watched the last couple of hours of play last night and wow Cummins was amazing. Perfect bowling on a pitch that wasn't doing that much.

The scarey thing is that this is still only Cummins' 13th Test and he's only 24 so he's effectively a cricketing baby and nowhere near his peak.

 Honestly, Dave Warner, probably the second highest earner in the Australian side, must also be the best rested. Has no idea how to stay long at the crease.

 Time to pack up and head home australia. You've just embarrassed your country.

 If steve smith is making these decisions then the team is doomed

 Feel sorry for bancroff, he's clearly following orders.

 Darren leehman has lost his team, time for langer to take charge

If smith doesn't stand down CA should sack him, he is suppose to set an example as the captain and would have known in his own mind this was the wrong thing to do and if leaman knew of this he should go too.

Surely Darren Lehman wasn't involved in this shit!!

 

The dickheads within OUR Australian cricket team need to be weeded out right now....

 

Fancy the leaders of this team putting a young fella like Bancroft in a position like that!!!

 

Fuck em, Steve Smith you are a joke, you had the Cricket world at your feet son, now its career over IMO.

 

David Warner you have put yourself and that big mouth of yours in a position now where you need to never play for Australia again.

 

Think of the barrage of sledging this team will cop from the rest of the world for this behaviour and why??

 

Because they dribbled too much shit, opened their mouths one too many times and got found out, lost that test by a better more determined side and then the pressure of the series piled on top of them...

 

Blokes that deserve to wear the baggy green would have kept their heads high and lost in a respectful manner but not this mob of tossers!!

 

If CA don't sack Warner, Smith and Lehman ( should he have been involved ) at a minimum they are a joke and the rest of the world will see it that way...

Wed, 2018-03-28 17:02

also reading yesterdays paper there was an article with Trevor Chappel in it saying that this will haunt them for ever like him bowling the under arm ball, which he is probably right. what i find funny was one of his comments was when you google aussie crickets darkest day it would come up with his story. now he is hoping that this wil replace it and he will no longer carry this title. he will probably send them a thank you card and a carton of piss.
