    No damn it. Ponting 200, Haddin 100, Johnson 150 and a 5-fer in the second innings. It will happen. Hughes and Uzi will fail badly and never play test cricket again.

    I can see why people in Australia are excited about him, but theres no way this guy is ready to play test cricket. Nor is he really likely to be any good outside of this pitch and maybe a couple of pitches in Australia at the moment till he works on his action and learns other skills. He's 6'3 not 6'9, the only weapon he has at the moment is all out pace, which to be honest is not the worst thing for an 18 year old but lets not get carried away by the fact that he was pretty ordinary out there.

    Most sensible Australians agree he shouldn't be there and he hasn't done anything to prove worthy of a spot. He's got great potential, but if the Test side is the best place for him to learn his trade is pretty debatable. It's just one final straw clutching effort from Hilditch.

    But when you see how much better than our "most successful left arm quick" he was you can see why such straws get clutched at.

    To be fair to Mitch he actually hasn't bowled quite that badly in this match. Couldn't care less though because he's a pretty terrible bowler anyways.

    So dire that Siddle, who imo was our worst bowler yesterday, picked up the most wickets....

    Impressed with Lyon (again) & Cummins though, they've both got a future at this level.

    Cummins obviously has great potential but IMO he is a serious back injury waiting to happen

    Selectors, etc really need to go easy on him

    This.

    Cummins bowled with good pace and bounce yesterday. He swung a few balls back into the left hander and he managed to get some seam assistance from the pitch as well. I honestly don't why people are saying he doesn't get any sideways movement as they have barely even seen enough of him to make that judgement. I've seen him shape the ball away from the right handers when bowling back in Australia but he'll struggle to move it both ways unless he fixes that seam position, IMO.
