    So hoping we see Watto bowl today... surely will only happen if they're desperate

    I hope that's Watson marking his run up, and not Faulkner

    I think if he's ok to bowl Clarke won't hesitate to use him tbh.

    Or we really don't want MJ to open the bowling
    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

    It's on Sky Sports 2 because you can pay less and just get SS1&3.

    Didn't realise there was any cricket preview on elsewhere but tbf SSN have had a pure cricket hour, been great

    Beautiful morning in 'vegas - whoever wins the toss will almost definitely bat as forecast for next few days not great

    There was an interesting doco on about it here on abc on Monday. A bloke who can't play at all wanted to know what it would be like to face it. They reconstructed the footage of larwood and used computers to reference land marks at Adelaide oval to estimate his speed (143-147 ftr).

    The bloke ended up at Allan Border Field facing Brett Lee in a cap, old pads and gloves and a 30s style bat with a Bodyline field . Got five balls through and pulled the pin. **** himself

    147 in that equipment would not be pleasant. Faster than I would have thought.

    Logic behind Tremlett's selection is almost antithesis of MJ's IMO

    Unless Tim has somehow rediscovered his form/pace in the nets, not unhappy that Poms haven't picked Finn as the latter is definitely more of a wicket-taking threat atm
