    Change batting order 2nd innings Australia

    To me it would make sense if the aussies changed it, like this

    Watson
    Hussey
    Ponting
    Clarke
    Hughes
    Haddin
    Smith
    Johnson
    Harris
    Siddle
    hifienhus

    To me the Aussies have to change something, Hughes is a walking wicket against the new ball, and smith is the worst number 6 batsman in test history.

    At least do something about it.

    Insanity is doing is doing the same again and expecting a different outcome.

    Playing in only his tenth first-class match, Bradman, nicknamed "Braddles" by his teammates,[21] found his initial Test a harsh learning experience. Caught on a sticky wicket, Australia were all out for 66 in the second innings and lost by 675 runs (still a Test record).[22] Following scores of 18 and 1, the selectors dropped Bradman to twelfth man for the Second Test

    Saying it twice makes it doubly true.

    Implying that Bradman's average of 52 after two tests is comparable to Smith's average of 24 after three.

    Agree with the above, but Siddle will be elevated to number 4 as night watchman tomorrow night.

    Won't trust Hussey to face the new ball tbh. Hughes looking alright when he's there but that douche throws it away (a la Sehwag) after looking good and settled. Hussey's fine down the order facing the older ball and Swann imho.

    That's where that signature came from.

    Why not ? He only did it for 12 years prior to his test debut and averaged lots.

    Actually, I would move Watson rather than Hughes. Watson to 4, clarke to 5, Hussey to 1.
