    WACA traditionally gets flatter over time and we botched in 2008 and almost 2009.

    Wow and just as I wrote off England these wickets make things interesting again. If they can wrap up the tail and restrict the target to below 400 they have a real chance. Time is not an issue and as mentioned the Perth wicket flattens out over time.

Ricky Ponting was in his prime back then; it was impressive.
    I believe it was Johnathan Brown that was bowling the heat. You have to note that Ponting had no padding other than gloves I believe.

I have no doubt looking at the participation numbers, and some of the stories about Alex Keath, Shane Warne etc that they have lost a good few stars to their football.

    All this really does is explain why NSW produces way better cricketers than Victoria

    tbh I lay claim to being the first (at least non-Australian) to ridicule Steve Smith's head. cbf checking but pretty sure I did it within moments of his international debut.

    There's definitely something incongruous about a player getting talked up and then, when you see them, they look like a total goober. Had the same reaction to Bollinger and Tait tbh.
