    Isn't the Brisbane Pitch against the rules of the ICC

    I thought the ICC said that test match wickets should offer something for both bowlers and batsmen. This one doesn't.

    Calm down. Two days to go yet. Its not as much of a road as some of the ones served up in the IND-PAK series. I would have like a little bit more juice but there might be a result yet.

    And in the end, you want a result.

    Have you been watching any of the games in Australia over the last 5 years?

    It doesn 't matter...after recent tours we've realised that at the end of the day cricket is always the winner, even if both teams struggle to score 100 or, alternatively, score 1000.

    best of a very bad lot maybe...

    Brisbane was a reasonable test wicket for mine. The rest are unlikely to be as good.

    In my eyes, there is nothing worse than a slow, flat and lifeless track. It isn't benefical to any sort of batting or bowling. If it's flat and lifeless then at least make it a flier, or if it's slow, then make it a big turner.

    Honestly if Brisbane is considered to be the best wicket in Australia after the rubbish that has been served on there over the last few years its quite a sad scenario really. Australia had 800 odd for 10 wickets on that pitch and England had they batted better in their first inning should probably have had something along similar lines.
    I think in general England, SA and even India, SL and NZ are producing far better test match wickets at the moment. Only the WI and Pak producing anything near the same standard as Australia.

    Totally agree with you there mate. High scores, but takes forever getting there=

    Nothing worse in Test cricket. Except maybe a sticky wicket, but thats more of a personal hygiene issue really.

    Melbourne's a lottery these days, don't know what you're going to get. Melb and Syd will both be "result" pitches, IMO. Doesn't necessarily mean they'll be good, of course...

    Australia showed it's possible to BAT and BOWL on the wicket.
