    Patto can rest up between series. December 4 is the fifth day of the last test against SA, December 14 is the first day against SL, surely that's enough time.

    That would be a better option that resting Patto for Adelaide. He looked easily the most promising on a flat wicket last match. And Starc would be way better suited to the WACA anyway.

    Hope our blokes will be better for the run.

    uve, I get what you mean, but if Watson ever actually bowls again, hopefully the work rate won't kill the others. Rotation policy is certainly the new reality though.

    Just make greener wickets FFS. We have bowling depth to die for; play to your strengths.

    Of course, there's the corresponding risk of SA having an easier deck for their own attack, but I for one enjoy seeing 40 wickets fall over five days. Didn't even bother tuning in for the last day of the first Test.

    The danger is 40 wickets might fall in 2.5 days.

    Adelaide won't change though, it's been flat forever. Brisbane was disappointing this year for sure.

    Where's HJ? Is the weather set fair?

    Disagree.

    Rotate the hell out of Pattinson during the ODI series, but I really don't think its necessary at the moment to even contemplate rotation after one Test of the summer.

    Pattinson shouldn't play ODI's.

    Not because it will give him a rest, but because he's not a good limited overs bowler.

    I don't even know the one dayers schedule this year but I think Pattinson does have a role to play in them, but like I said, rotate him during the series.


    South Africa have made two changes, Rory is gone unsurprisingly and in come Faf and Tahir.

    @ Adelaide ever being anything other than perfect for batting.

    Weather here is too good. Even when the deck is green, it's a beautiful day to bat.
