Much better than the junk James "Mitchell Johnson" Pattinson bowled.
    Smith gets quite a lot of dip too, so there's a good chance that Bairstow thought it would be a lot higher than it really was. Have seen him bowl quite a number of balls which look like rank full bungers out of the hand, only to dip drastically and end up having to be patted back down the pitch, either as one of those fullish deliveries which are really, really dangerous to drive at if there's a ring field or a low full toss as was the case here.

    Ofc these balls often came interspersed with some actual rank full bungers as well.

    Despite the extra innings, Agar is still the third highest run scorer in this series, to a side with a brittle batting lineup, he isn't going anywhere.

    I've not seen much from him as a bowler yet to call him an all rounder to be honest. He probably should stay in your side, but if he doesn't take wickets at Old Trafford that should be a real concern. Also the bolded is utterly irrelevant, its the 5th innings of the series for christ sake.

    Well he should have one less wicket than Swann.

    Is Swan a real concern?

    Considering how the you guys keep telling us how completely hopeless the Aus batting lineup is, surely he should be pulling michelle's out of everywhere, especially on spinning decks.

    think he had an injured finger first test and a hip injury this test. I thought Lyon was ok but compared to our recent spinners Agar hasn't look far behind though when he is bowling well and fit. I think a lot of spinners over here are stuck in containing roles in juniours/club cricket and aren't used for attack which needs to change.

    The term "michelle" to denote a five-wicket haul is massively overused IMO.

    How bad was Pattinson? Really disappointing; down on pace, total scatter-gun. Is he carrying a niggle by any chance?

    Pattinson carried a virus into the match. I suppose they are thinking he'll come good as the match progresses and be important, but gee he struggled yesterday.

    He was hitting 150kph against India, hasn't gotten near that so far this series. He won't stay down for long though.

    With the English bid I said: Let us be brief. If you give back the Falkland Islands, which belong to us, you will get my vote. They then became sad and left

    Bowlers don't get enough credit for deliveries that exploit aggressive techniques. People are too quick to just write the dismissal off as a rash shot.
    Yeah, it looked like he was attempting a flipper sort of delivery. It might not have come off like early Warne but the idea was sound and well enough executed to get a wicket. Bowler's wicket tbf.

    Yeah he was bowling at 82-ish all day. Well, well off his best but not too worried tbh.

    Another ton on a flat deck. Whoppee do. Everyone saying this is a 450+ deck, don't then turn around and laud the muppet's efforts here. His effort last week (though dropped in the 60s or so) was better and I've already given him credit for it, ****.

    Bell making back-to-back tons is like that basketball kid in the States shooting three pointers.
