    No idea how Clarke is going to cycle through his bowlers.

    oh no it isn't that, it's just that the mods tend to have been here a while and are thus excellent posters, have the same problem with guys like Benchy and Son of Coco
    There are two colours in my head

    Just got soaked coming home from uni. Pouring. I'm not sure if there will be much play today.
    The sort of general malaise that only the genius possess and the insane lament.

    They've purposely done it so that the inevitable final day finish clashes with the ACC U23 cup finals. Those bastards.

    Perhaps. Time will tell. If we bowl last its unlikely to hurt us as much as it could potentially cause England problems.

    I completely disagree that Cowan isn't bad against spin. His game plan might be passable but his execution is not.

    The message is that Cowan or Hughes or Khawaja can't just stay/walk back into the team all the time as others will be given chances. Of course if Faulkner performs well here, it could mean that Watson is on the outer in Australia which I'm sure some on here wouldn't mind.

    He noticed he was right handed IIRC.

    Don't see what's wrong with the Aussie selections really, they've got balance - 10 guys who can't bat and 10 guys who can't bowl. Sounds fine to me.
