    I am a bit. I was mentally ready to go.

    And then BAM, they changed the traditional start dated of 3 Jan to 4th. Nobody from Cricket Australia called me.

    Me too. I was out running errands all day (one of the joys of running your own small business).

    I listened to a bit on the radio, and only got home with about half an hour to go.

    What a catch .

    I'm calling another innings victory. Poms won't get to bowl on day 5.

    England all out - probably a good hundred runs short of what they needed.

    Australia in front (not in "control" just yet).

    If Uzi had failed here, I think it would have been time to strike a line through his name to say "never to play for Australia again".

    Yeah he was well overdue for a decent score, i think bancroft could be pushing shit up hill to get a plane ticket to south africa unless he gets a decent score in the second innings.

    He was actually scoring a lot of runs in shield cricket in the lead up and renshaw was looking terrible so he got his spot. So far he looks way out of his depth and it won't be any easier facing the south african quicks in their own backyard either.

    Fair enough. Renshaw completely dropped off the face of the earth, looked good when he first started. Guess most younger players really struggle to consistently perform when making the step up to the test side.

    yeah i don't know what happened with renshaw, in his first tour of india last year he did pretty well, he was the second highest run scorer for aus (although he only averaged 29) but that is a nasty tour for a young kid and he handled it pretty well. After that he did pretty average against Bangladesh(apart from warner all our batters where pretty average) and than fell into a real hole in the state stuff in the lead up to the ashes and bam he was out.

    It would appear that James Anderson has completely run out if ideas.

    Smith is literally making mockery of England bowling, beyond disrespect.

    I wonder if he would be half as effective on Indian pitches against Indian spinners.

    27 109 - - 2 0 v India Pune 23 Feb 2017 Test # 2250
    8 28 - - 3 0 v India Bengaluru 4 Mar 2017 Test # 2251
    178* 21 - - 1 0 v India Ranchi 16 Mar 2017 Test # 2256
    111 17 - - 3 0 v India Dharamsala 25 Mar 2017 Test # 2258
    8 37 - - 1 0 v Bangladesh Dhaka 27 Aug 2017 Test # 2272
    58 16 - - 2 0 v Bangladesh Chittagong 4 Sep 2017 Test # 2273


    an average of 45 is good against India/ Bangladesh but not as freakish as 166 against the poms in ashes.

    He was dirty with himself and so he should have been.

    That DRS fail from the Poms was bloody hilarious too.

    Just replying to your comment asking if he would be as good in India
    To which he scored 3 tons there...
    Has absolutely carved poms up ..... very lucky to have him play for us!
    Best batsman in the world by a bit
