    Apparently he also made a nearly invaluable 3* and forced a run out.

    You played three ODI's in India as well.

    Yeah it's ridiculous. God forbid we have guys get a solid build-up before a test series instead of hit and giggle.

    So long as bowling all-rounder Finch is playing shield cricket in the lead up we'll be fine, need him in FC form before the test matches

    Yardly the most memerable series. Two of the three games were abandoned without a ball bowled.

    With the final ODI being on Nov 2 and the first Test Nov 21, I think the gap is sufficient enough for our Test players to stay on for the full ODI tour. Hopefully the Shield schedule is made with some thought so everyone can come back and play a couple of matches. What I don't want to see is Test players like a Smith or Starc over in India but sitting on the sidelines when they could be playing Shield Cricket. I also wouldn't pick Warner, he is one bat that could really benefit playing for NSW early season.

    Yep. Plus a lot of our ODI squad isn't really in test contention for the first test (imo). Particularly if Warner and Smith fail to secure a spot in this upcoming series.
    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

    Incorrect.

    Both sides picked C teams and 2 of them got rained off.

    ffs, just realised I'll be at schoolies with a bunch of people who don't like cricket for the entirety of this test match, pretty sure we'll have wifi though, so I'm gonna be counting on you ****s

    FMD, that is ridiculous

    Should just select Finch as captain with the balance of the squad made up of his clubmates

    It's a real pity Finch can't put it together in the longer form of the game. He did score a couple of 50s in South Africa though. But he excelled more in the one dayers over there as he always tends to do.
