nah you're on dean jones' hit-list. watch out
coincidentally, dean jones hit a double ton in india once
first i've heard of it
Two seasons ago they were complaining the pitches were too flat, so fast bowlers and spinners were getting a go and they matches weren't creating results.
Now they are complaining the pitches have too much assistant for fast bowlers.
I'm sure if they made it flat again, they will start complaining about the lack of support for fast bowlers in 18 months.
Maybe the real issue is the players aren't good enough to show their quality in non preferred conditions. The players are too reliant on dominate conditions to play well.
When it comes to spinners 4-day pitches in Australia will never support spinners. Even test pitches are useless for spin bowling until day 5. So who really cares if there assistance for spin bowling, because there never will be.
Though the flat pitches of 90s, meant that the top fast bowlers and spinners always come to the top. And batsmen learned how to play big innings, but someone batsmen struggled at Test level in conditions that had more support for bowlers. Though it is easier to carry an under performing batsmen for 10 tests, then a bowler that can't take wickets outside green tops.
