    I'd probably go as far as to pick Duminy in the top six if you gave me an all-pace attack unless the pitch was ridiculous, so yeah Swann plays thanks. I fail to see how Kallis would be a good change option after you got through Anderson, Broad, Steyn and Philander.

    They show this game all the time on World Series Classics; I've started to actually memorise these highlights.

    By change option I meant "reasonably competent bowler who can bowl some overs to give the others a break", but yeah.

    Jacky K and Hash doing super well.

    And a fair knock in the second half of the morning session, too.

    Should say I went to a **** load of games that summer. This may be the one where some mates and I met McGilvray as we were running about in the Nobel Stand. grandfather used to take the whole cricket team into the games. We'd pile as many as we could into his car and go. Usually seven or eight of us. I think Thommo misfielded one badly on the boundary and copped a razzing.

    Was the night MacGilvray said to us he reckoned Rackemann would be a gun for Australia.

    History of wanting to leave venues early I see.


    Must be a result of you being an Eels supporter. Always wanting to go at half time.

    This is very disappointing from the English bowlers. I know the batting conditions are very good, but where's the fight? They just look like they're going through the motions.
    Bowl some bouncers FFS. Be aggressive. Take back the initiative.

    Piss weak.

    Btw I don't think it's conclusive at this point that Philander is a better bowler than Broad. Can certainly understand, or expect, that it would be a majority opinion, but to state it as an unarguable fact is wrong, IMO.

    Really? I've not seen it. They always seem to show the one in brisbane where Hookes smashed Willis around.

    Name me a single team that has ever not looked like that at 2/a million. Frankly, England are doing OK not to just put every single man on the boundary and bowl every which way, which is what happened down here for two consecutive summers by different sides.
