    Adam Voges says the improved batting by the Aussies is due to the belief Boof is showing in them and the freedom in which he is allowing them to play.

    Probably says more about Mickey Arthur than it does about Darren Lehmann.

    I think it may have something to do with England having one limited overs bowler too.

    60 million people and you can only find one limited overs bowler?

    We have about a 1/3 of your population and a "bowlers back" epidemic

    Apparently a bright enough morning forecast, then cloudy with a few showers in the arvo.

    As the Ashes tour moves onto its third Australian Prime Minister, we're expecting a blamy top of 14 in Brum, which is awful.

    Brum I mean, not the forecast.

    there's absolutely no improved batting
    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

    Clarke & Bailey struggled along in the last match I guess. Still, improvement might be just around the corner

    Maybe not, but we've certainly improved on straw clutching.

    Players clutching at ashes:

    Australia:
    Aaron Finch,
    Shaun Marsh
    George Bailey
    Adam Voges
    James Faulkner
    Mitchell Johnson
    Clint McKay
    Fawad Ahmed


    England:
    James Tredwell

    clarke and bailey played good ODI innings under Arthur. Finch played a low sample amount of matches under Arthur. Voges returned to the ODI team under Arthur. Marsh is still Marsh. There's no real improvement. Voges just towed the party line like players always do. It says more about him than it does Arthur.

    Like when all the players filled out the questionnaire so diligently for Mickey

    It's long and it's dangly.

    "However, in Test and first-class cricket very few players are willing to embrace equally the disparate ambitions of personal success and entertaining the crowd. After such a brutal display of hitting, it's natural to wonder: why can't Finch do better in longer forms of the game?"

    Just one of Mickey Arthur's many mistakes not insisting it was done in front of the media then
