    Is it worth playing 5 test series anymore, would Aus be better off if they went with two series every summer even though I'm all for 5 test ashes series.

    In anticipation of the greatest test of the summer, Sydney is tonight putting on a fireworks extravaganza.

    Melbourne is doing something too, apparently.

    Reminder not voting on that poll was the truest show of character.

    This video reminds me of that experience.

    I think Moeen would've already been dropped if Stokes had been playing, as it's easier to bring Crane in for someone batting eight than someone batting seven, particularly given Woakes hasn't done anything with the bat.

    I think he'll come in now anyway though -- they'll just cop the long tail.

    I think you misread the poll. It says biggest, not best, so Kohli is easy winner here.

    Just remember him for his tail end performance with the bat at Trent Bridge, 2013; 98 as I recall.

    What is the **** with the Sydney test starting on the 4th? I seem to remember as an 18 year old getting wasted on NYE then watching the Sydney test on new years day. Granted, I may have missed a day though blackout. Is that false memory or are they messing with tradition on the Sydney test now?

    They guarantee a number of rest days these days which means no more boxing day/new years day back to back tests.

    That thread is hilarious. People arguing about Root's away average like it made all the difference.

    Burgey made two predictions in that thread - one right and the other (probably wrong) - that Smith would captain Australia and that he would average 45-50. The second looks highly unlikely without a very extended run of poor form.

    Smith is way ahead in Tests, in ODIs Kohli vs. AB de Villiers is touch and go.

    Smith averages 54 in test cricket. Burgey was not far off and I expect his average to come down a few more runs in the future now that he can pick his moments to bowl.

    Hey.... I asked about what needs to be done for him to stop being classified as an All rounder on cricinfo only very recently. They have now changed him to middle order batsman!!!!
