    Can't see Beer carrying drinks tbh, why would they pick a spinner in the first place if they aren't going to him in the test....

    Cheers.

    Weird selection, it must be said.

    Given Smith has effectively been picked as a batsman (judging by the squad he's a direct replacement for North) I think he has to play. Smith isn't the kind of bowler who can tie an end up whilst the quicks are rotated.

    Yeah i mean his batting is a bit better than North's and if he had improved in the bowling department he would have been the perfect replacement.

    Who is more accurate? Beer, or the guy who throws the darts to select Australia's spinners?

    It's all a conspiracy I tell you.

    Check this commentary out:
    RTA SpeedBlitz Blues vs West End Redbacks - Match 15 2010/11 Sheffield Shield Sydney Cricket Ground, Sydney

    Can you find any description of the **** bowling by Smith today? NO. They are all left blank with only a "no run" next to them. The pullshots played against Smith today have been changed to "worked around the corner" etc

    Just some of my emotions at that squad.

    Congratulations England, you don't even have to play our best team to retain the ashes. We just grabbed a couple or Warnie's club mates to bowl you a couple of overs on the way to 3/985.

    ****ing joke. Can we start a petition to have Hild**** and co removed?

    Huh?

    "Over 110.6: Smith to Edmondson, no run, OUT, attempted drive, top edged and Smith takes the caught and bowled. SA 8/362. The next batsman is George"

    "Over 104.2: Smith to Ferguson, no run, OUT, pushing forward and caught by Jaques at short leg. SA 6/333. The new batsman"

    "Over 36.2: Smith to Blizzard, no run, OUT, ball stays down, Blizzard refuses to play a shot as he is struck very low on the pads and leaves the umpire with an easy decision. SA 4/102. Christian is the new batsman"

    You feeling ok man?

    I thought England were wary of Hauritz when they last met in England. Maybe we will see Hauritz back for the 4th Test.

    3 Tests 10 wickets at 32.10.econ 3.11 s/r 62.0 - Hauritz
    5 Tests 14 wickets at 40.50 econ 3.33 s/r 73.0 - Swann

    Now you're just getting ridiculous, TumTum.

    But not quite as ridiculous as this ****ing selection panel. Seriously, Xavier Doherty and now Michael 'who' Beer!??? It's honestly like they just don't ****ing care at all, and it's downright frustrating and annoying when a bloke who's done absolutely zero gets selected simply because Shane Warne said it in passing. At least Doherty had bowled well in an ODI before his selection, Beer's played all of 5 FC games for his state and taken 16 wickets. He's never taken more than 3 wickets in an innings, FFS. But bravo selectors, a totally warranted selection over Hauritz or O'Keefe who at least have good records and form to back them up. But **** logic, right? Bunch of useless muppets. Fuming atm.
