    swann's turns it into the righties while monty turns it away so could've been handy

    He wouldn't have bowled better then Swann, but he would have been more useful then Anderson, Broad, Bresnan, Patel and Pietersen.

    Well have we seen any yet? Anderson isn't and Trott has been dire for ages. Not convinced by Compton either.

    I don't think so. Playing 3 spinners in a test match against any opposition on any surface is an extravaganza IMO, unless one of them is a batting allrounder.

    You do realise just how low a standard you're setting there right?

    When does Adelaide start and real cricket, not this woeful **** with spinners bowling and the ball never bouncing above shin height? It's like watching a news reel from 1900 or so. It's laughable.

    No wonder it's been thought a joke for 80 odd years. Like watching women's cricket ffs

    OK, so Trott and Compton are not decent first class batsmen now

    Haha yep. I'm not a big fan of slow wickets either but I'd walk to Perth to watch one delivery on this pitch before I'd walk across the road to watch a Test at the Adelaide strip

    Sanga isn't the best off spinner in the history of cricket? News to me.

    Rubbish. You wouldn't play two spinners in Adelaide. Real teams wouldn't anyway.

    It's a joke. You get these muppets all gloating because they're beating England at home, and good luck to them, but they **** themselves if it hits them on the hip ffs. It's a mockery of what's meant to be a bit of a test of courage too. Worst thing that can happen in an Indian test is you get a bruised ankle. It's effete.
