    It's like before the series when he came out and said that the series over here this summer showed we were scared of them. You what mate?

    But he's backing it up for now.

    If this was the win that sealed the ashes series win then it is a fair comment but seeing as though it is only the first match then it is a bit dopey. Then again look who said it, he is dopey.

    i took about as much effort taking and editing this video as jonathan trott took in learning to play the hook shot
    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

    Cricket needs more players willing to talk in things other than "oh, we showed good character out there today bland bland wanky bollocks"

    So good on Warner for actually saying what he's thinking and showing some ****ing personality. Long may it continue.

    There were a few calling for his head on SSN. But we've moved him back to six where he deserves more than one innings.

    Yes I was going to add that it's not to say he shouldn't be shot for his dismissal

    There's been some good bowling in this test but also some horrendous batting

    Had an awful feeling earlier that this is what England are going to end up doing, it is the sort of thing that England would do in the past and it would end really badly.

    Thought nothing of it at the time but it really is a shame that Ballance had such a bad time of it in the tour matches.

    Depends if you want your cricketers saying whatever the **** they want, or doing what is the right thing by the team I guess.

    Yeah, every run Root got milked for made me think more and more that they'd be tempted to bring Stokes in. Especially as not all the Batsman are firing.

    Doubt he'd get many runs at Perth, and will probably confound things by banging everything half way down and getting smashed.
