    Interesting that Geoff Marsh's highest test score is only 138. That' pretty low for an opener who played 50 tests.

    To be honest I always thought he was pretty shit..an average of just 33 confirms this.. ps I remember watching him play a one dayer at the SCG..he was fielding deep in the outfield..he was walking towards the fence and a girl of no more than 7 asked for his autograph..he just shook his head putting up his hand indicating no.. I thought he’s not only a shit player..he’s a shit person too..

    Yeh I didn’t realise that was the last session (still on the Adelaide timing :p). Bloke definitely got his days worth there. I couldn’t imagine the fatigue of batting a day. I get tired from working a day :tearsofjoy:

    Hopefully he got a good nights rest so he can smash out a triple this morning.

    Very impressed with mitchel though. I would have had him down for 40. Thought he would want to prove a point and he is in form so I was expecting some runs from him. Think he averaged 20 at the start of the innings so 150+ is insane. Got 8 times his average out there. Like I said hopefully it’s the kick start he needs because his seamers are useful to give the quicks a break. Especially on this flat pitch.

    I was very critical of selectors so far but they seems to have got it bang on so far. Especially seeing as Warner and usman are the ones not making the runs we are used to them making.

    The English batsmen are starting to take notice.

    It came on 5 mins before scheduled tea break.

    If it passes fast enough they won't lose much time.
