    I thought Invers lost some of his influence?
    Proudly supporting the world's no 1 spin bowler Rangana Herath and the mighty Sri Lankans!

    I even made a domestic thread

    Australia Cricket Features: First drop or first dropped? | ESPN Cricinfo

    Consider the following, a list of all the batsmen used at No.3 in the Sheffield Shield last summer, nightwatchmen aside: Khawaja, Hughes, Quiney, Ponting, Marsh, Watson, Alex Doolan, Michael Klinger, Michael Hussey, David Hussey, Marcus North, Aaron Finch, Joe Burns, Peter Forrest, Cameron White, Nic Maddinson, Tom Cooper, Peter Nevill, Tim Cruickshank, Sam Whiteman, Luke Towers, Dom Michael, John Rogers, Michael Hill, Alex Carey, Steve Cazzulino, Sam Miller, Peter Handscomb, Daniel Hughes, Marcus Stonis and even the bowler Kane Richardson.

    That's 31 men who batted at No. 3 last season; a mix of veterans, rookies and journeymen. And for all of that, only four centuries were made from first drop in the summer's 31 Shield matches. Not surprisingly, Khawaja (138 v Tasmania) and Hughes (120 v Victoria) made one each, while the other centurions were Doolan (149 v South Australia) and Hill (144 v Queensland)
    A big fan of my spreadsheet it seems

    Indians can't bowl - Where has the rumour come from as I myself and many indian friends arwe competent fast bowlers ?

    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

    Both innings, though.....

    If the logic was for him to just hold up an end while the deck improved, would have been a mild shock when it kept jagging to the very end. One of the more tense games I've seen, made even worse when THE GODDAMN STREAM FELL OVER WITH A WICKET TO GO.

    Didn't Ponting bat 3 for Tasmania regularly last year? Surely he made tons there?

    Doolan had the no.3 spot. Ponting's only attempt there ended in failure

    As Top_Cat said the deck was ridiculous so they just wanted to protect the middle order a bit. Richardson actually bats in the top three for his club side in Adelaide semi-regularly so I guess they just thought he had the technique to make 20 (50) or something and leave the other players in more natural positions for them. Gave them a way of playing five bowlers too obviously.
