The only ground M Clarke has a better record at than the Gabba is the Adelaide Oval.
SOS to Compo to bat 3, IMO.

Will say this once and then nothing else. Defamation laws quite clear in Aus.be careful.
basically give ben stokes a game so monty can get a game
Draw the favourite for this one IMO. Most of the Australian batsmen - in particular Warner and Clarke - love the place to bits and if England can't put up decent scores on this deck they should be dropped. Or shot. Or both.
do you think people will be allowed to make violins?
who's going to make the violins?
When was the last draw at Adelaide?

Adelaide has actually produced a high % of results over the last few decades so its rep as a road is overstated. England to drop Trott to 5 as his last chance in tests. Bell to 3. Agree that Eng need a pace boost. Anderson and Broad are still bowling at effective speeds. The Tremlett gamble has failed. His 33 runs per wkt in the 2013 season was an accurate predictor as to how much his form has dropped away. Bring Finn in for the rest of the series. He has the pace England need. Yes he has a history of bleeding runs but he takes wickets and always has. A mistake not to have him in the side for Brisbane. He'd be a greater danger to us coming in behind Anderson and Broad.
11 days until the second Test. I wonder if their is any possibility that Rogers, Watson and Bailey goes back to Shield Cricket and play the first couple of days, just to get some time in the middle. They could play on 29-30 of Nov and the teams just nominate a like for like for the final two days of the matches. England will be playing a tour game on those 2 days too.
Daniel Brettig: "Siddle is the vital glue for a bowling attack that needs experience and consistency to balance the talent of Hazlewood, Starc, James Pattinson and Pat Cummins. Hopefully Lehmann and company will now remember this"
@CricketAus: .@darren_lehmann announces the same 12 will be selected for the second @CommBank #Ashes Test, with a player to be added if conditions suit.
