    Yes I agree, there was an acceptance we'd missed our chance once Smith got a start. Very disappointing. But it is difficult to remove a top batsman once they're set on this deck, however, I agree we should have showed much more intent.

    Nah two good balls did. Second of which could have had any right hander out if the same umpire stood up

    I think England should try different sledging techniques against him. Try telling him some dirty jokes and get him laughing or something.

    Spot on. All the talk about "sledging getting under Smith's skin" was clearly rubbish, sensationalist journalism. The worrying thing is how many people buy the story.

    The Australians would be delighted if England did that. Very helpful if all the England fast bowlers were banned from bowling again in the innings.

    Why resort to Tino Best tactics?

    When he played in the Shropshire league he bowled beamers if he got hit for too many boundaries, ********* tactic.
