Fighting for peace is like screwing for virginity.
Too many bones, not enough CASH!!
Harris (if injured, Bollinger)
...so what I said for the First Test.
Jesus brings life eternal
remembering the life of Phil 'The Prince' Hughes
Not a fan of dropping a youngster after 2 matches, would give both Smith and Hughes another run. Would like to get Khawaja in there but he'll get a chance next series replacing one of Hughes, Smith, Clarke or Ponting. Bollinger who should be 100% back in for Hilfy and O'Keefe/Hauritz for Harris.
There is literally no better time than now to try some new players out imo. It's essentially a dead rubber, and it's on the big stage in a pressure situation where we could see what the new players are made of. Not to mention I think we would actually have a better chance to win if the team was different...
I'd care a fair bit if we lost at Sydney. It's still an Ashes test match ffs and people are still forking out their hard-earned to come see it
+ time's fickle card game ~ with you and i +
Haddin must go up the order due to an abundance of **** ****s atm. If Gilchrist played 2 tests behind ****ing North, Smith, and 2010 Ponting + Clarke, he would have been opening in an instant. Haddin's talent, and technique under pressure, is severely wasted atm. Him batting behind Smith at all, but especially this innings was madness.
All the guys treating Sydney as adead rubber, you do realise that beyond the Ashes, there's also the small matter of avoiding a home series defeat, don't you? Sydney is not a dead rubber by any means.
Trying to win = treating it as a dead rubber?
I'm not saying it's right (it isn't, IMO) but it's the way cricket works in this country. It's almost applied to the same extent as other countries building towards a World Cup in ODIs.
