    Chappelli apparently reckons edges normally carry in Perth. Very rare to see them drop short of the slips.

    it's important we have strong focused batsmen playing because it's one of those pitches where you're never quite in
    Indians can't bowl - Where has the rumour come from as I myself and many indian friends arwe competent fast bowlers ?

    I love the WACA telecast time - often tune in after coming home from the beach!

    Yeah I normally switch it on after I return from the shops, like a large portion of spectators at the ground.

    Arguably not, but then you've got a five man pace attack, which will bore the **** out of me.

    It's not what the spectators want as they head down to the ground after a morning at the beach

    it would be a big move to drop lyon after he was so dominant last year at the gabba (@ bowling to their tail-enders + a drunk ryder)

    Also if it's hot weather the pitch might flatten out. With Watto to assist, four seamers should be enough. Surely you need variety.

    I'd have to disagree, he's very good with the gloves. Streets ahead of Wade. His batting has been disappointing but his glovework and feet are exceptional.

    Wade to me looks like a very good batsman who can keep reasonably well. Can see him as a specialist bat in a year if he's still around.

    wade being just about our best young batsman (with the prince obv) and us having quite a few keeping options (haddin, paine, nev, even chris hartley) means, for me anyway, wade playing as a specialist bat is always an option.
