    can't have it both ways tbh

    Distinct difference between an on field umpire making an on the spot call and a 3rd umpire making a call with the time they are allowed, and the technology, and clearly ballsing it ujp.

    Bowled England to victory against Australia at the Oval 2009 and Adelaide 2010.
    Bowled England to victory with a 10fer against South Africa in Durban 2009 and was the highest wicket taker in the series with 21.
    Bowled England to victory at the Oval against India in 2011 and made them look like tools as he took 20 wickets in the series away to India last winter.

    Fair to say he's played his part more than enough when its mattered.

    And anyone who says Aussie cricket has never been this low before wasn't around in the 1980s. That was far worse, I can assure you. Far, far, far worse.

    For whats its worth i agree.

    I know exactly where hes coming from and have a pretty good idea how he feels, being a Liverpool fan i can relate with a lot of what he says, it can get thoroughly depressing, we all care but we are all different, this is just one way of looking at it and tbh hes spot on with most of it.

    Oh happy days, Dyson, Wood, Hilditch, Bright, Holland, Gilbert, Rixon, Bennett. Great times, still at least you had a bloke called Wiener to cause amusement.

    No discussion of Australian cricket in the 80s is complete without a mention of Simon Davis and Tony Dodemaide.

    For bowling, yes, absolutely.

    Not so sure about batting though. I know some of this is hindsight, but you had some pretty good batsmen coming through from around 1985 onwards, even if they took a while to mature. Not sure who your next generation of batsmen are now.

    Blokes like Hughes, Warner, Khawaja and Smith probably fall into that category. It's definitely a wait and see thing with those blokes, for sure.

    Have tipped Maddinson to make 5,000 plus test runs at 40+ some time back, which means he'll no doubt be out of the NSW side within 18 months. :-/

    So basically there's barely anything coming through then? It's not wait and see with these blokes, I can tell you now none of them will make it as top test batsmen. I'll happily eat my words if I'm wrong on any of them. Also Maddinson? Good luck with that. If this is the best coming through then wow, just wow.

    I think it's pretty clear now the older brother won't make it and the younger ones batting has gone down hill while in the Sheffield Shield.

    Joe Burns? He's okay. But he's hardy going to be the knight in shining armour for that batting order.

    You pretty much have to put a line through the last 10 years of batsmen. It's a lost generation.
