    AWTA. Forget comparing averages, the current lots hits fewer tons and there are fewer players who are capable of going past 1000+ in a season. The current back-ups just don't score as many runs as the back-up we saw in the 90's/00's, it's really that simple.

    Siddons is a great example; in any other time, he'd have played 50+ Tests and would have been a massive boost whenever Australia went to India. Imagine if he was 25 now.

    So we have injured and coming off a layoff, out of touch, out of touch, in golden form but could barely walk last innings, past it, North, in-touch keeper.

    Haddin's in touch? Didn't he get 10 from 35 balls today?

    Good to see the Aussies setting the bar nice and low.
    Every 5 years we have an election and have to decide who are the least obnoxious out of all the men. Then one gets in and they age really quickly. Which is always fun to watch.

    Strauss is in good nick apparently.. How did he get on today?

    Sydney was greenest I've seen it tbh today.. Wish I'd been out there.. 20 wickets in a day!!

    Like watching England following on and trying to save a match

    Made a decent 60-odd last week to save the game.

    He got out playing a dip**** shot, no bones about it.

    Can't help but remember the last time one of these two sides were 200+ short was Australia at Lord's...

    Strauss is in good nick Burge...gave us wicket away because Monty needed time in the middle

    Given that Australia's finest are incapable of getting Monty out, I fully expect to awake to some special numbers in the morning

    Or maybe I'll be the next injury reported when Burgey gets a hit put out on me for my posting in this forum

    He was in good nick four years ago too. Look ****, our finest weren't in Hobart yesterday, they were either bowling elsewhere or having a spell (not an England off the field for 10 minutes to be coached spell, but a proper rest).

    Your proper agony starts next week. Sitting up all night - FMD, you'll be wanting to get back to bed by lunch day one.

    Agree to a certain extent, but still things aren't that bad, since flat decks and **** bowling attacks are a norm these days at the international level, therefore the younger batsmen are unlikely to find it that difficult.

    These are batsmen I expect to average 40 plus if given a decent run at the test level.

    Just read that Ronny McDonald broke his hand, kind of sad for him as any chance he had to sneak into the Ashes squad for the 2nd test could be all but gone.

    Half those guys can't even average 40 at Shield level consistently.

    Watson seemingly has some minor niggle, but apparently will be okay.
