    Didn't someone earlier desribe it as Craptaincy.
    I did, he is like Cook in that he does it by the book and has no other plan if it doesn't work.

    We’ll see how easy it is to bat on tomorrow. Said early on 250 is enough, 275-300 has Australia in front by a fair bit. It’s going to rag late. It’s really dry. Look at the footmarks on day one.

    You just know that it's going to be ****ing years until we take the captaincy from Root and wasted his peak because of it.

    We should just give the captaincy to Buttler.

    Australia inching ahead now. They should actually make sure they get bowled out with 5-6 overs to go lol, guaranteed they pick up 2-3 wickets tonight in this type of situation.

    Looks like they'll get to 300 and Smith will get 150. Would be nice. Run rate over 6 for the last 10.
    trundler isn't annoying at all. He's quality. -TJB
    Yea trundler is the new Bijed. Good addition. - Zorax

    India batted first at Melbourne no? That ended up being the decisive Test.

    He’s a bIt stiff losing Anderson. Wouldn’t have banked on broad bowling 20 plus day one and Stokes having to bowl as many. Stokes is a handy bowler but he’s no Anderson.

    Certainly agree these fields with nine blokes out is woeful though. There isn’t 500 on the board

    Yea they did. And iirc the bowlers were back out there pretty sharpish instead of having their feet up for two days, but I’m not 100% and cbf looking it up at 3:30 am.

    Shot Lyon.

    Not helped by Stokes bowling utter garbage all day I guess. He hardly bowled in World Cup either, might be carrying an injury or just has no form but he looks way off it.

    Yeah a bit harsh to be overcritical given he's a bowler short today. Don't rate his captaincy too highly in general though, there were plenty of passages of play against WI where it was... questionable to say the least. That massive partnership between Holder and Dowrich springs to mind.
