Second Test

So far so good, Australia won the toss and elected to bat, both Finch and Harris looked sketchy early, but starting to find some runs after the first 5 overs.

Don’t think it’s going to happen any time soon, we’ll not on this track anyway.

Glad its not a runfest and theres some unpredictability in the wicket to keep the bowlers excited. Pretty lose from Head after getting a start.

I'm with you there Adam. Good to see an even contest between bat and ball after years of flat piches being rolled out in Australia. 

WTF was Head thinking?

 A bigger 1st innings lead would have been nice, but they just need to get a reasonable lead and the pitch should get harder to bat on for the curry munchers as it wears.

Naziess, was a bloody female safety person, carried on like an idiot. Told my boss I wasn’t allowed to work today in the workshop in town either, don’t know what that’s got to do with it. But anyway, it’s too good a contract to lose by upsetting Rio over something so trivial. It was a good sleep in, crickets on, do some shopping later.

How much do we need?

Mon, 2018-12-17 11:59

 I think about 300. Usman looks like he's got his eye in. Need just over a day to bowl'em out.

Maybe see if we can get another 70 runs in the next session and come out for quick runs in the 3rd and send them in and try snag a couple of wickets before stumps

286 is the chase, would have like 300 but that was valuable runs by the tail.

All the talent in the world but can't hack it on the big stage.

You'd think that WA would've been where he'd shine.

Others ahead of him for the chop

Tue, 2018-12-18 07:33

with the slim pickings we have ATM I am sure he is not the first to go. Handscomb ahead. Think Mitch Marsh should probably come in, but who knows what the selectors are thinking.
Hard to change a side that won ( I hope that is).

We are on unprecedented

Tue, 2018-12-18 08:15

We are on unprecedented ground and there's no need to panic untill at least Bancroft becomes available.

MMarsh is hacking it up in the Shield and the only ones making big runs with a history of making runs are Burns, Wade and Hughes. Do we wants to go back to either of the first two?

I'd be willing to give Handscomb a decent run at it and keep Smarsh in until the banned trio are available.

Gotta put both marshs above handscomb. Good to see a win and to stick it up Virat, attitude to spoil the talent.
