    Who's talking about dropping Patto, probably 4th guy on the team sheet behind Smith, Cummins and Paine (would be 3rd except Paine is the only captain candidate we have).

    Siddle on the other has always been one bowling performance away from being dropped when you have Starc and Hazlewood around.

    Lords supposed to be pretty flat right? I'd always try to fit Starc in because he is just different to others.

    Although I think Starc is unfairly maligned here at times, and I reject the notion outright that him and Patto can't start in the same XI, I wouldn't pick him at this stage for Lords. He has a completely different modus operandi to Siddle, who was the steady man holding up one end. That attack balance worked well, if Siddle does miss it should be for Haze who is imo capable of doing a better version of the same sort of role.

    Spoke to a mate down in Traralgon the other night and he made a point or two in comparison with the opinions held by CW regarding the merits of our bowlers, this is despite CW having so many various opinions all the time. It was slightly interesting hearing someone at evens with what I usually skim through on here. Kind of leading me to think there is probably some mythologising going on regarding some members of our pace attack. He would pick Siddle and thats not controversial at all.

    Interesting to see Wahmbino back out of posting a mere opinion in case it's proven wrong whilst calling others sensitive for rightly referring to his posting as weird.

    Since 2005 our attack has often failed to live up to its billing in England, at least consistently over the length of the series. And every time, the central problem they have is leaking too many boundaries, which makes it impossible to build wicket-taking pressure and brings the crowd right into the game. It’s worth noting that, despite the seemingly difficult position Aus were in at the end of Day 2, they never let England run away with it and thus were able to peg them back quickly once they got breakthroughs.

    Starc bowling as he is would wreck all of that. No way he should be picked if he’s going at >a run a ball in a tour game.

    Took a closer look at Starc's 4 overs. Started with a wkt maiden, then 12, 4 and 11 runs so 0-27 off 3 overs....sounds pretty rank even by white ball standards?

    I listened to the BBC commentary for the Worcestershire innings and it sounded like he bowled a fair bit of dross.

    Starc gets Ferguson in his first over of the day. Can we somehow manipulate it so that Starc is always bowling his first over of something lol

    I guess we can't read too much into Labuschagne 1-3 off 3 overs?

    hazlewood looks ready to come back in for siddle. Haze despite being similar to Siddle, is superior in all aspects at his best.
    Starc took 2 wickets, but was village mostly.
