    Aleem Dar has probably never seen Ryan Harris play a proper cricket shot before so don't blame him if Dar can't recognise one when he tries.

    Haddin's was terrible too. What made it worse was that you could see it coming from the way he was playing beforehand.

    Wouldn't feed the ****. Hope someone crushes his larynx when he bats with a well placed short one.
    Haha, you know he'd be right on the Australian XI teamsheet. :P

    You only have to be attempting one tbf. And you can't doubt that Rhino is trying awfully hard

    At least Australia can draw some comfort from Clarke top scoring

    I wouldn't say that ball was in the right area. It didn't even pretend to consider thinking about threatening the stumps.

    It doesn't, but it doesn't mean you can't talk about how poor the shots were without being expected to bring up every dismissal in the innings and whether or not it was good bowling.

    I think it can be taken as a given that someone thinks the rest of the wickets fell mainly due to good bowling. I think the ball to Haddin was a good one too, in a good area, but he played it very poorly to get out to it.

    Unfortunately, with the form most of our batsmen are in at the moment, decent balls in a good area are more than enough to cause this to happen.

    Hope Siddle and Harris put on 300 though

    Wouldn't have played first class cricket given we had a drought for a decade and the ball didn't swing. Would have gone undiscovered.

    To think the world may never have found out what a prized **** he really is. Would have been horrible.

    Shows how woeful this is when you get woken up by Nasser getting excited on commentary.

    Should polish this off quickly and be ahead today and win by an innings again.

    Haha yeah, was dire. Smith's was worse though. At least if Haddin had got lucky enough to middle his or slash it over the slips he might have got some runs.

    Well in your hypothetic arguement he would be an Aussie so the rest of the world would have made the natural assumption.
