First Test

Look away now Pirate and Merman, this thread doesn't contain reds or whites or even pink bits.

Looking forward to seeing what C7 brings to the coverage after C9 really stagnated since the departure of Richie and Tony. Hopefully we don't see a flat Adelaide pitch.

And finally after years of doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result an Australian XI contains 4 bowlers, a wicky and 6 batters. Unless we have a bloke that averages both over 35 with the bat and under 30 with the ball in the Shield then we shouldn’t be considering playing an all-rounder. I'm backing our bowling attack to get the job done over the summer.

No M Marsh! The photos must have been shredded.

I can see us holding their batsmen but we may well struggle to make many runs.

We need fast bouncy pitches that wont turn until day 4.

India, at $2.50, are worth a pineapple.

I hope we do well and stick with the 11 for at least three tests,

So we've dropped our newly appointed Vice Captain.....good appointment that one.

Im a big Mitch Marsh fan but liking Stoinis as a more reliable allrounder lately.

Quality Foxtel broadcasts is a relief too. That crap Ch 9 was dishing up over the last few years was fkn painful to watch.

And you thought channel Richie was fucked. Have lost interest in cricket with the bullshit that's gone on recently and now crickets been sold out to fox and co it's another sport I won't be paying much attention to.

Both teams need to bat before

Thu, 2018-12-06 20:53

Both teams need to bat before deciding who wins the day. If we get rolled for 150, the 250 looks fantastic, doesnt it?

Fri, 2018-12-07 07:50

We have time to build a good lead so I just hope the Aussies dig in and grind out some runs unlike the Indians who for the most part threw their wickets away like they were still in T20 mode.

Ecoli is a bloody cracker Dale. I usually use the line "Kholi puts the rat in Virat"

I was hoping to catch something on fox cricket when I got home, but there’s nothing. Have to wait for the news I guess.

Set up your Foxtel to record Cricket360, it’s comes on after the cricket. That is pretty good.

Fri, 2018-12-07 21:15

Piggy, Finch shouldnt be opening mate...

 

Doesnt in Shield cricket so wtf should he be our test match OB?

 

Put S Marsh or the terrorist up the order and let Finch play his natural game down the order...

 

I wonder whether Callum Ferg should have been used in this test, been in good form?

I think we have a silly chance if Marsh and Head can stay there, need to start playing their natural games though.

 Could either cover himself in glory or be a villain if he goes early tomorrow. 

These two need a big partnership and the very unlikely may just happen..........

Not holding my breath though.
