    You feeling ok man?
    Exactly my point. You can't find an bad description about Smith. It is all a cover up.

    I have watched todays whole play and he was absolute garbage.

    That wasn't an "attempted drive" by Edmonson, that was a ****ing dirty slog

    Beer is a pub-standard bowler, he will not add any fizz to Australia's attack... this is further evidence that the Aussie selectors couldn't organize a piss-up in a brewery.







    Sorry, couldn't resist.

    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.

    Will have a wee lol if Hussey jr tons up today.
    Tbh, Australia are just looking for 20 wkts now, that's why they are effectively going in with 5 bowlers in this test, and eventhough Smith's selection might seem a bit weird he is a much better choice than North....

    White giving up bowling was the best career choice he has made. His first class batting form has been fantastic the past three years (the date he stopped bowling as a front-liner). Had he not stopped bowling I cannot imagine he would be averaging in the 40s with the bat or his bowling developing much more from the level he was at.

    The selection of Beer is so bad. I like what he is doing for Western Australia, but this situation is beyond a joke. One undeserving spinner after another. Beer looks a better bowler than Doherty but that is like saying being hit by a golf club is better than being hit by a cricket bat.

    Well yeah, but it' an astonishing selection. If they weren't going to pick Hauritz it ought to have been O'Keefe.

    And I know O'Keefe hasn't been playing, but funnily enough, neither has Johnson.

    Beer will play I imagine. If they play four quicks, it's effectively a 5 man pace attack including Watson.

    How very, very odd.

    Think I'll get back on the phone to CA.

    Sounds like Beer's gonna play. From the CA website.

    “Michael Beer replaces Xavier Doherty in the squad. Michael is a left-arm orthodox spinner who has been very impressive at domestic level this year. He took wickets against England in the tour match earlier this summer and we expect he will bowl very well against the English on his home ground.
    Why yes, 16 wickets at 39.93 is very impressive, Andrew. Nowhere near as good as Hauritz's 14 at 26.07, that's for sure.

    On Dubai radio yesterday, a former test cricketer and mate of Warne's spent nearly 45 minutes of a 2 hour talk-back show discussing Warne's comeback and suggested that it was a done deal for him to return at the MCG and probably as captain

    Thought he was simply filling air time but now I'm not so sure
