    Interesting that Mitch Marsh as 5th bowler sent down more overs in the match than Johnson and Starc
    Amazing how that Australian batting was light years ahead of the current one.

    Well 3 of that top 6 are in the current squad...but what we'd give for the other 3 as well right now (Rojers, Clarke and Voges)

    This.

    I advocate for Pattinson over Marsh only. I advocate for a batsman above both.

    You always pick your best spinner if they're fit.

    plus Clarke used the Mitch's, particularly MJ, in very short spells, unless they were on fire

    Will say this once and then nothing else. Defamation laws quite clear in Aus.be careful.

    Of course, Warner didn’t look snakebitten every time he strode to the wicket.

    Looking at that card, makes me think that Siddle will be strongly considered for the 5th Test.

    Is that a surprise? Amongst other things, Rogers, Clarke and Voges were highly experienced batsmen at the end of their careers. They're always going to look more impressive on paper than a bunch of newbies.

    Not really. Apart from the fact they were outplayed for the majority of the series.

    Roy and Overton have been dropped for Curran and Woakes. Stokes not fit to bowl.

    I feel for COverton there. Didn't do much wrong, but a weird selection in the first place.

    Head out for MMarsh also fairly surprising imo.

    This feels a bit 2013 Fifth Test where both teams get a bit funky and it risks backfiring on both of 'em.

    One change for Aus, Head has been dropped for Marsh in the XII so no Pattinson.Siddke may play over ?

    I think if Cummins isn't going to be rested playing MMarsh is the right call. I was wincing at times during his final spells on Sunday when the commentators were hyping up the durability of a bloke who suffered multiple stress fractures before he turned 25.
